Dear Mr. Long,

 

I am writing to request that the comment period for the public regarding the Union Square eminent domain DIF issue be extended.  It is important that all members of the community fully understand what an unprecedented action is being considered by the city.  This would be the first such DIF in the state, so we have no examples to look to.

 

A fiscal impact study performed by the city would provide much-needed information to the city government as it considers this very serious issue.

 

As a Union Square resident, I am as excited about the future of our neighborhood as I am proud of what we have accomplished so far.  It would be irresponsible of the city to close comment on the DIF before we all understand the full ramifications.

 

Sincerely,

 

David Scott
