CM Lonnell Matthews says he is deferring to get the Bells Landing Partners' TSU land/cash donation squared away. Betsy Phillips wonders whether the Planning Commission public hearing engendered a crisis of faith in developers' intentions on the TSU supporters' side. I guess I'm just too much of a cynic on that score: CM Matthews sees that he's not going to get the quick and easy hit that the summer/holiday calendar makes possible, so he's deferring for lack of votes; he's deferring to save it from certain defeat. Time is now his enemy, so he's looking to buy more of it.
