Thank you for sharing your thoughts and analysis of the City View project.  I, too, carefully looked at the many aspects of this application, some unique to this property, and came to my conclusion.  I am sorry that this time we did not agree.  You raised several questions which I will try to answer after I ask a few more questions of staff.  The questions surrounding how we approach economic development are very broad and very complex.  One possible approach is for the city to do nothing, and assume that we will have good investors who locate in our city and provide good jobs and a broad tax base.  Apparently this is a question we need to revisit.
