I think Hudak views this Safeway project as a lifetime employment deal. The big question is why does Safeway not figure it out? Are they really not paying attention? Do they want to lose the vote and have to pay Hudak more to reapply with a more suitable design? Or do they want to win the vote and have to pay Hudak more to defend the citizen's lawsuit that would come if they should win the vote? Doesn't make much sense. Makes even less sense when you remember Michael Brownrigg's revelation months ago that the Safeway corporate annual report said they were making good money on "smaller stores". That leaves them open to charges that their lawyer (Hudak) mislead the city during the hearings. You couldn't make this stuff up.


I wonder if Safeway will "bribe" the City with a little money incentive to help fill up the city's coffers. Of course it wouldn't be called a bribe, - maybe mitigation for the parking deficit - maybe a teen center - or maybe something as uncreative as a silly historical arch. Or perhaps Safeway will stun as all and tell us they will go away!
