Urban Politics #292: The Budget and Rethinking Mercer West

May 13th, 2010

The City faces over $50 million in budget cuts next year on top of mid-year 2010 cuts of about $12 million. In light of these constraints I believe we must re-examine our current construction budget to see what savings we can realize. Close to $100 million is required for the Mercer West transportation project, which may increase the project’s principal and debt costs. For this reason it is critical we evaluate the design of Mercer West to determine if any savings can be achieved.
