No majority support for waterfront plans

(Continued)

Mayor Holaday claimed after Union’s presentation that its plan “preserves open space.” That’s a crock (to say nothing about her betrayal of a key re-election promise). If the NRA plan is implemented, the waterfront will be maxed out. The rich who can afford waterside condos will indeed luxuriate in the splendid views from their balconies, a glass of Chardonnay in hand, to the general public’s neglect. What part of this equation does the NRA not understand?

I will now lay my “busy pen” to rest. But just for a moment, believe me.
