    I was in attendance and I can say that there were a number of us commenting who made clear our opposition to any housing at the MRIP for a number of reasons. Furthermore, there would be organized opposition against any housing at MRIP if the City Council made that terrible mistake.

    This project was promised to be a “commercial only” project and to focus on bringing revenue to the City and housing would basically bring more costs, so it negates the reason for considering the innovation park. If they want to density it, well than they can fit in even more revenue producing commercial.
