Yassky's waterfront lesson: make sure neighborhood commitments in development plans are done up front
The Observer reports:
There wasn't much else to see and as we got back into the minivan, I asked Yassky about making deals with the city.What about AY?
"Certainly one lesson," he said. "One lesson of that is: whatever neighborhood improvements are supposed to go with a big development plan should be done up front--should be done before it's passed. The commitment should be made enforceable in some way. And if not, then don't bank on it."
