I find it disgusting that a small group of activists with their heads in the sand were able to get the developer jerked around for this long.
Still, while I feel sorry for the inconvenience and cost to the developer caused by this obstructionism, I believe to approve a now flawed proposal out of sympathy or because "we should get on with it" is not serving the best interest of our community.

The City Council should at least insist on developing the mixed use alternative that provides a residential component near the city's transportation hub.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
