Chris Hansen explains the arena proposal's relevance to I-91 (again). In it he takes Chris Van Dyk and even some councilmembers to school.
I-91 as written simply does not apply here. Chris Van Dyk is angry because he's been outmanuevered and out-thought, and any debate on the "spirit" of what I-91 was supposed to mean is a morass of moving targets, half-truths, and poor guidance.
The Council can make this very, very easy on themselves and save a ton of money from lining lawyer's pockets by exempting this. It's not only the right thing to do, it's the only thing to do.
