    • They're not bloated, unless you're talking about overstaffing and overpayment of police and fire, which again, comprise the overwhelming majority of any municipal government's budget.     The reason you never see anti-tax people going after police and fire is because they know slashing police & fire by half would make homes and commercial buildings uninsurable.    
    • you have got to be kidding me. the savings would probably be half of current expenditures given all the multiple bloated governments, councils and staff. actual services would not be reduced, but management staffing could be. also business interaction with government would be greatly simplified, with tax money going countycity-wide. same goes for countycity-wide school districts, ie., paying one superintendent those big bucks vs multiple people in the same role.
    • lol... so the underwhelming part at least.  It'll be hard to reduce 4 stories, though, but if anyone can do it...   These parking lots are enormous.  They could've been something special because they are on full display from 670 and 315.  But nope.  Who needs vision when you can go cheap.  I can't believe we waited 20 years for this.

    • Have you seen the original Geis plan to develop the land adjacent to Burke? I'll look for it. Seeing those renderings made me believe that Burke could have a great deal more value to the city. Since those plans have all but disappeared I'm not so optimistic any more. Shoot, maybe the coolest thing about Burke was the Cleveland Grand Prix. Gone.    Anyhow, after years and years of wishing and hoping (and sometimes even working) for a better, cohesive, first-class waterfront I've lost a great deal of energy for the subject. I'm glad there are still people, presumably younger, that are passionate. But the reality is that the transformational changes we all want to see will take decades. There's just been far too many years of neglect and damage to be undone.
