One would think the money could be used to finish the flood control portion of the project and let the private sector do the rest.

I never quite understood why Gateway Park was apart of the project to begin with.

The scenario you’re describing is exactly what is going to happen. TRV will complete the flood work and the infrastructure and the private sector will develop the remaining land.

The west end of Gateway is one of the flood retention areas that alllows the levies to be replaced. That’s why it’s part of the project.

This really concerns me. I thought that the idea was a great one for the city and would help in two areas: flood control and attracting business development. Large tech companies and other forward companies like relocating to cities that have amenities for their employees like Panther Island is supposed to have. If it's as mismanaged as the article implies it might be then I'm quite angry.
