I just read it, and I want to say thank you for writing this piece. Of course, some will say that Montgomery Plaza was a great way to save a derelict and ugly warehouse
John, How much did the Fort Worth City Council give away for the Montgomery Plaza development? If the building had been rehabilitated within federal standards for historic preservation, the investor could have received valuable investment tax credits. Instead, the city council, as usual, gives the developer carte blanche and makes the taxpayers pay for it. The city council doesn't believe holding developers to any standards -- other than money making -- and this is suspect, because the citizens always pay for it. Usually in the back end.
