Gookin: McEuen improperly planned

In the comments section The Govenor asks Dan Gookin: I have one for Dan Gookin: Is the spending on the project to date under or over budget? The story really never addresses that point. I would like to know, is McEuen overbudget right now?

Gookin replies: If it were planned properly, I could answer that question. By proper planning, I mean that most government (and non-government) projects start with a budget. This one started with “dream big and forget about the cost.” The McEuen train seems to have never left that station.

Do you agree or disagree with Gookin?
