I was happy to learn that Bob Dunn, the Edgewater Hotel developer, is getting together with Fred Mohs and other Mansion Hill neighborhood activists to try to work out some answers on Dunn's proposed $100 million improvement project. It would be great if this were viewed as a win-win scenario for everybody rather than an extended confrontation.
I continue to be a strong supporter of the project, and for now the $16 million in a tax incremental financing loan will stay in my 2010 and 2011 capital budgets. There's no point in changing it until we see what comes of these discussions. My hope is that we will have solid answers on the project by the time the budget passes in mid-November
