If they're abononing the downtown, and breaking that promise, then they should be obligated to return that land to the city. It should not be their's to sell.

For a variation on this theme, check out:

Fisher family -> Dundas District High School -> BOE/City of Hamilton -> Condo developers.

The land was given to the city in the '20s to build a school on with the proviso that it would forever either be used for education purposes or a park.

Apparently the final surviving Fisher went to court to prevent the sale to developers...and lost.

Proving once again that the only sure things in Life are death and taxes.
