The pitch was shut down today in committee as this building needs EPIC repairs and City Hall hasn't found a way to make the rest of the district self-sustaining despite $100-MILLION worth of investment over the past generation.

Why would they take it over, all they do is fuck things up, it would be better off in private hands.

Let the King family finance and run it with some of their ill-gotten Paseo gains.

Just another empty dream from someone with lots of ideas, mostly for himself, and no money.
And when what little private "fund raising" dries up.
It's off to city hall to dial for dollars to cover the tab.
The taxpayers are never in on the planning or take-off for these deals.
They just become the revenue source of last resort.
It never changes.

The City should release the annual overhead costs of the 18th and Vine District along with the Jazz Museum and its overseers. This annual cost should be looked at closely with an audit to see where this money goes and for what purpose. The City should also explore a long term plan on how the City can sell these buildings and eliminate this overhead. This area has been an expensive non-performing asset which the City needs to eliminate from its budget.
