The city council actually voted in favor of the development of Alma Plaza:
However once again we have evidence that nothing will appease certain people, who would hold up Alma Plaza for another 10+ years.
the developer increases the amount of retail at the plaza, in response to demands by neighbors and the planning commission--what response do we get--"it is inappropriate", "we were blindsided" "it stinks".
obvioulsy some people would prefer that now have another couple of years discussion on this matter.
Also note that our mayor voted against the development--I guess she would prefer that people drive to other shopping centers rather than having to walk to a neighborhood one--so much for climate change.
