The Almont site is listed as a Brownfields property....

and this is the one Saffo and O'Grady have their heart set on. As far as consideration for the other site, I don't believe $6 million was just abitrarily chosen: “Somewhere in that $6 million range for 8.5 acres is really bottom line for me on what I could afford to do,” Chuck Schoninger, May 2012. Now, Schoninger is one of the financial backers behind the upcoming media campaign to pass the referendum. Why would he contribute money to an ad campaign if it resulted in the city buying another piece of property?

Saffo has stated that he envisions the riverwalk connecting our (idle) convention center to this next white elephant. I think the fix is in.

By the way, what's going to be the budget for that riverwalk extension and who do you think is going to get the bill? That 2.5 cents just keeps growing.
