The City owns a centrally-located downtown parcel known as 3 North Street, and it is trying to decide what it should build on this prime location. Local hoteliers and others have circulated a petition in support of an already-planned event pavilion and parking concept on this City property. The Foley family has offered a $7 million gift to build it. Because this is public property, the City is also considering whether it should build affordable housing on City-owned land. After a City study, the highest scoring property by far is 3 North Street. Should the City go forward with the event center plan, which now has private funding? Or pause to consider affordable housing on the site?
