I guess the idea is that Clean Line is going to help Hot Springs, Conway, and North Little Rock develop economically by providing opportunities for these communities to profit from the project. And here's proof!
Clean Line Energy Partners has opened an office in Arkansas!
Here's a picture of it.
That's Room #406 at the Homewood Suites Extended Stay Hotel in downtown Little Rock. Sounds totally legit to me! The only thing more legit would be a rented mailbox at one of those mail drop places.
Why should Clean Line rent a real brick and mortar office space in Arkansas when they can operate their "business" out of an extended stay hotel? It's not like they're going to be around long enough to need permanent housing or a permanent office. And Clean Line's rental of an extended stay hotel room is just pouring money and jobs into Arkansas! It's going to take hundreds of new employees to service Room #406! Arkansas will be a much more prosperous place because of Clean Line's temporary largesse!
So, if someone in Arkansas tells you that Clean Line Energy Partners is a fly-by-night company, be sure to tell them it's just not so. They've rented a room at an extended stay hotel that they're using as a business office. It won't be awkward at all to sell a right of way across your property to a company with office space at an extended stay hotel. Instead, it shows their ongoing, long-term commitment to the people of Arkansas!
