    Congrats as well Javier - it is a great plan apart from the billion dollar convention center component which needs to be discussed in a public forum.

    Befoer embarking on another mega project, now let’s focus on implementing the liveability components of this plan: baywalk and water front. Grand boulevards and pedestrian streets. A supermarket on the North side of the river.
