Comparison of existing conditions to "recommended" Michael Singer site plan - City Commission meeting today at 5:30 p.m.

Not too much difference between the two conditions. What the city would gain is more interior landscaping in the parking lot and a little more green-ish space by the seawall - in exchange for moving parking further to the west. No where is there a percentage comparison of green space between the existing and proposed plans. That should be a requirement in order to judge the benefits of the "recommended" plan. Does this plan represent a project worth $15 million (very low estimate if rehabilitation of the existing casino building is part of the task) or $25 million if you are realistic about the rehab cost of the existing building and the site work.

Is this the best we can do? Even though others would like you to believe that building placement is not that big an issue - it is.
