“For now, the questions that can be asked and should be asked are:
“1. Having spent money twice on ULI studies - what policies does the City intend to implement and when, from the ULI report?
“2. What is the current City Policy on greenfield development versus in-fill?
“3. Having spent almost $100m to develop the Waterfront – in order to kick start downtown revitalization – what is the step after that to protect that investment?
“4. Greenfield development is less expensive (for the Developer) but more expensive for the city (to provide services) and downtown development is more expensive (for the Developer) but less expensive to provide services. Downtown infrastructure was allowed to deteriorate to allow sprawl and if we all agree that downtown re-development needs financial support, why not redress the imbalance by charging an impact fee on all greenfield permits? Then downtown redevelopment would become less expensive and more attractive.
“5. Bottom line is whether the City wants to tackle the elephant in Stockton or just pay lip-service.”
