Comments from the Peanut Gallery on the Excess Project

In my opinion, the only portion of the project that will surely be built is the portion that was part of Peter McLaughlin's promise to Wells Fargo. The rest of the items were gleaned from the neighborhood processes in order to gain neighborhood support or acquiescence. The mitigation and enhancements are also just a ploy to get the neighborhoods to accept something that was a bad idea from the start. Unfortunately, some of the residents were so greedy about the enhancements and moving ramps to other people's back yards that they went for it. It's really a study in divide and conquer. Peter McLaughlin and the Smith Parker principles should be ashamed.
