City Council Meeting Mon 10 July 2017

Request to pull Item 5-p from the Consent Agenda with Director of Downtown Transformation Jeff McVey called back to give a 30-sec elevator rap and comments made by Laurent Reichmann who states he is not speaking against the project [he stated he met Mr. Sprague a few days before] waiting for a so-called 'quality project' with a hotel and "luxury apartments" in a 15-story tower where no details or renderings have been presented. . . as it turns out "a private developer" - who remains un-named in public statements by Jeff McVey approached the city,  not the other way around.

5 vote in favor of the MOU [2 absent] in motion by D4 Chris Glover.
