The Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation is asking for the public’s input concerning restaurant and food market opinions and decisions. I have an email in to ask, but take a look, fill it out, and let me know what you think it’s all about.
I think it’s part of the planning for a proposed food market at Canal Side, and also possibly to prioritize what sort of restaurant concessions are approved or pursued. This way, when Goldman et al. complain about what ends up there, the Authority can point to the survey and argue that they sought and received public input, and avoid controversy over who speaks for whom.
