Nak, perhaps you and I weren't at the same meeting...? I'm referring to the Special Public Meeting on September 12th in which 15 people spoke for the cable park and 33 people spoke in opposition of it. <BR><BR>
The cable park was not stopped by a couple of greedy lawyers. Naito is currently considering pulling their proposal for the cable park in response to a plan put forth by Mayor Babitz and Commissioner Davies. Perhaps I've misinterpreted the Mayor and Commissioner's motives for suggesting such a plan (I had understood that it was because they both felt the divisiveness that the proposal has caused in our community would ultimately prove harmful for our community). Maybe I was wrong in that understanding? That's partly why I raised the original question.

Something doesn't smell right here. If the Mayor, the Port Commission President, and the majority of the public (that showed up to voice their opinion at the port meeting) all feel that the cable park isn't what is best for our town, then the Port needs to simply reject the Naito cable park proposal and get on with the UR plan. Why are we making deals with Naito on this? Why are we allowing them "...hold all the cards" here? It's our town and our waterfront. We should be able to do what we want with it without having to appease an out of town corporation. What am I missing?
