Mixed feelings on this. I'd love to see residential development downtown, and I hope this project happens. It would be hard for Council to say no after approving a very similar proposal so recently. On the other hand, I think Planning Commission was correct when they rejected the Friends' proposal as contrary to the intentions expressed in existing planning documents. Maybe the value of long-term planning itself is questionable.
