“We’d love to do this for the Community, but…”
The current proposal does not have sufficient support to get the required 2/3 majority for funding approval. Therefore, Aldermen Mansfield and Parker asked for a delay while supporters seek modifications of the proposal to address Aldermen concerns.
We had delivered a comprehensive Community Support and Fundraising
Plan and a means for getting it into action. However, without another
overwhelming public response to reinforce the purpose of this acquisition, and physically demonstrate community interest. There was little incentive for the Aldermen to shake their skepticism and fiscal concerns enough to invest city resources to complete the open space at the South cove. Surprised?… dissapointed?…
Communicate that NOW!
We shall continue to find a way to do this!
