How can anyone in the city have any kind of real discussion with you guys in the face of [the deception of the MTC zoning application]? We can't talk about real costs, because no one knows how much money it will take to dig up the archaeological sites that might be present under the MTC footprint, because y'all don't know what archaeological sites are there, no matter how much you misrepresent Ms. [Zeda] Law's work [to survey modestly smaller Bells Bend properties in 2005].
This also means that your estimates of when MTC would be done are also just numbers you're pulling out of your butt. You haven't even begun to estimate how many bodies might be under the MTC site and what it's going to cost you in terms of time or money to go to court and get permission to move them and then the costs associated with moving them or how long those kinds of projects might take.
At this point, I don't even see how people who support development in the Bend aren't nervous about working with y'all.
