The Internet has become an extremely valuable resource for finding older, more hard to find electronic replacement parts. Something like an old tape recorder or guitar amplifier need not sit on the shelf collecting dust as some sort of beloved but useless relic.

Some out of fear that if they don’t get it “perfect” right now it’ll create a domino effect of failure in the future and some from their view that no mixed use and or residential development at all is a good thing. Mind you, this is all supposition but based upon history and a few years of involvement in city politics, one gets pretty good at reading between the lines..
