    Plans for improvements? We have millions invested in plans that as Jeff Speck states in the quote at the end of this post the plans are rendered mostly moot. One option of many the Mayor says and each option/plan was paid for by who?

    “That plan was done some time ago,” Brainard said. “It is one option of many.”

    According to the mayor’s office, the city plans to make improvements to the lot when sufficient funds are available.

    “So why did Carmel spend nearly $200,000 to draft a redevelopment plan of
    a property the city doesn’t own and the actual property owners are
    reluctant to follow?”

    effort of what we’d like to see” of the area, but any future changes to
    the property could look different, rendering his work mostly moot.”
