The request is for $10.5M plus $1M to be switched from Housing and Community Development for Beale Street Landing. It was not approved by the budget committee. If approved by full Council, another $6.8M would be needed to finish BSL as designed. The current estimated cost of $39.3M does not include any future operation or maintenance costs.
We urge the City Council to
* call a time-out and vote NO to this funding,
* give the Mayor time to consider and propose other alternatives,
* insist on full transparency and a cost-effective solution.
