Saw some action on the Manito Park hill near Grand this afternoon.
Reminded me of the classic description of Vermont's (or sometimes New England's) climate — nine months of winter followed by three months of poor sledding.
The sledding looked pretty poor today here in Spokane. But it's early.
Suppose, through a bizarre sequence of events, a developer acquired Manito Park and announced plans to build a gated community there.
Yes, of course, there would be a sustained uproar.
There would be howls of protest and letters to the editor saying the city had sold its soul.
But once it became clear that all the lawsuits and what have you were not going to stop construction, how long would it be before people would start buying properties in this development?
I'm guessing about five minutes.
