8th St Redux Redux

So the additional 4 spaces on the NW corner of 6th and State Sts are out. The vote was 3-2. Huber, McKee and Arnold voted to allow the State to prevail. Myself and Franden voted with the merchants, office tenants, and citizens.

What I found most unappealing of the State's arguments was their lack of understanding of the need for these spaces. They had no interest in allowing the City of Boise a little extra time to meet with the full Capitol Commission to make their case.

They did say that anyone could use the State's nearby parking lot on nights and weekends and that they were very generous to do so. Generous? The State is us! We are the State! Apparently they have forgotten that, if they even ever knew. I guess they just think of the citizens as the poor saps/cash cows that stuff the maw of government with our hard earned money.
