Rewards don't come without risks. At the end of the day, the benefits of Pineapple Square may amply exceed the costs. But it's essential -- for the sake of open government, fiscal responsibility and simple good sense -- to look carefully before leaping into a project of such potential consequence.
The SHT editorial concerning Pineapple Square makes a strong statement for open government, fiscal responsibility and good sense. Their review of the issues is good. We hope our commissioners are up to the task.
