We can't make the area under the Skyway pedestrian oriented.  How else are cars going to get to the new fire department parking lot?

They can't claim development that was already being subsidized. It's clear they've attempted to connect downtown sites that were already planned. However, there's been little discussion on how this system can influence the built environment itself. The best thing about trendsetting projects in other cities has been their ability to change the built environment around them. Not just in downtown but in areas like Durkeeville, Eastside, Cathedral District, etc. Unfortunately, most of the promotion has been centered around selling the technology, which is still unproven for what's proposed.

I know it is not a LEGITIMATE claim, but wouldn't put it past them.  :)
