$45 Million of YOUR tax dollars to a developer to turn Westport High School into lofts!
Who is going to want to buy a loft apartment in the middle of the ghetto?

And this RESIDENTIAL development is supported and proposed by the
"Planned INDUSTRIAL Expansion Authority"!
The only "industry" connected to this fiasco is the "industry" of transporting YOUR money into an out-of-State Developer's pocket!

"Developers" will tell you that they'd rather go before one of the more obscure "economic development" organizations like the PIEA or Port Authority because the public really doesn't even know these quasi-governmental agencies exist, so it's much easier to avoid scrutiny and more likely to get approval for their "project".
Once agencies like this or the "Street Car Authority" are created, their major priority becomes looking out for themselves and their supporters, who, in the case of the PIEA, are developers.
And all at taxpayer expense.
Which goes on for many years.
