I nominate Tybalt to be head of our Economic Development Corporation under Eisenberger. You're bang on. nobody is anti-business. Believe me, the builders and developers will still make tons of money building new projects in this city....speculation is the killer. They make so much on that, it's insane. And the harm it does to the city and city coffers is insane. Balance urban and suburban taxes and completely close off the urban boundary for the next 30 or 40 years. What what will happen. The builders, developers and retailers will start re-inventing streets like they have in Montreal, Toronto and Portland. New projects with an urban feel with be built as the city implements design guidelines and pedestrian-friendly guidelines to manage new growth so we don't get big box crap in the urban lower city (too late for Centre Mall by the sounds of it). I have no problem with businesses making money. I just hate how city hall has chosen a select few to make gobs of it, and told the thousands of business/property owners on King, Main, York, Cannon, Barton, Parkdale and Kenilworth that they don't matter. The fact is, they are the future of our city. Not paving over more quality farmland.
