So this must be separate from the $2 million in grocery store “seed money” that was being offered by the URA and the Penguins as part of a Community Benefits Agreement.
Oh, yeah. What ever happened to the Community Benefits Agreement? Remember, the one that our politicians celebrated as nearly complete the day our Planning Commission met to green-light the Penguins arena in January, promptly and utterly forgot for a full three months, revived again suddenly just two days after our city development czar got into a wee bit of trouble, prevailed upon One Hill to painstakingly ratify about six weeks ago, and allowed to remain unsigned and unrecognized by the City, the County and the Pens ever since?
There is so much we’ve been meaning to discuss…
