Even this is not a slam-dunk though and there will be a battle to get this passed. IMO, if that alone happened it would be huge enough.
Yup. If someone buys city hall that pretty much forces the construction of a new one. I like that.
Overall I like the vision. Joe wants to get a lot of this done in 5 years. He's got stones, I'll give him that.
If you've ever talked with the mayor, he has a very 'can do' attitude. What he wants done he wants done now, and the majority of it is good for the city, at least in my opinion.
...Now to await the nay-sayer's from this project in the Free Press and elsewhere.
