Just so we're clear - does anyone have anything ELSE in mind? Has anyone proposed ONE thing they DO want to see come in (besides businesses that have already said no to multiple offers )? I don't love the idea, but how about actually working to find some alternatives people?

Or is our economic development plan to just wait until some as-yet-unnamed business comes along to invest thousands in a run down parcel in the middle of an underused retail area that sits on the edge of a park where on any given day 20-50, maybe 100 vagrants hang out?

There is the matter of tax revenues to be addressed as well. How long should we wait?

We just found out the Green line extension is being delayed, so do we really think the Assembly Square project will stay on target? Seems like people easily forget the local track record for keeping timetables on projects. Or maybe they're just being optimistic.
