Saturday's edition of the Amarillo Globe-News gives an account of the project, which involves creating a 168-acre downtown complex, tentatively called "Panhandle Pete's Premiere Prairie Dog Town."
Wallace Bajjali CEO David Wallace, who will be in Joplin for Monday night's City Council meeting was quoted as follows:
“Research has shown over and over that people, be it locals or tourists, have an affinity for a lively, progressive prairie dog town,” said David Wallace, CEO of Wallace Bajjali. “It’s family-oriented. It’s educational, and frankly, the critters are so darn cute.”
