Rumor Mill

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 – 03:00 p.m.

We’ll preface this by saying it’s just a rumor.  A pretty interesting rumor for that matter.

There’s chatter circulating that dialogue has started between San Bernardino City and Lewis Group of Companies over the downtown eye sore Carousel Mall.

Mr. Michael McKinney, chief of staff to Mayor Carey Davis, is a former Lewis employee.

If Lewis get something going with the mall property, then good luck and God bless. It’s been more than a decade that the mall was actually viable. Multiple ownership interests make the formation of a coherent deal difficult to say the least.

The Lewis Group still has an active agreement to do something with the Orange Show Fairground property.
