You forgot the most amazing part of the agenda; the city spending nearly $80K on consultants to come up with a plan for NewPark Mall and its surroundings. The city "envisions" a place where thousands of residents live, shop, recreate and experience culture. Perhaps an events center, sports stadium or convention center. Let's see if there is any intelligent discussion among the council members or if they just throw the money around and see where it sticks.

That and the sales tax revenue giveaway to Del Grande Dodge, etc. It seems that Del Grande is locating in Newark in return for Newark letting them keep a significant portion of the sales tax that would normally go to the city. This from a city that insisted it couldn't afford crossing guards or parks - $80K to subsidize Rouse Properties and who knows how much to the auto dealer. The explanation given at the City Council meeting is that you have to spend money to make money - but I always thought that business was to spend it's own money. Apparently, our city believes in welfare for corporations.
