Market House & City Dock Presentation

| September 16, 2010 | 4 Comments

UPDATE: The entire presentation is online.  (Go to the “City Council Work Session” category and click on “Market House Update Sept 16”). However, from our computer there appears to be no sound, just a lot of mouths moving with nothing actually being said. The interface has a separate volume control in the lower right corner of the interface; slide it to the right to increase the volume.

Eye On Annapolis was unable to be at this evening’s meeting to discuss the status of the Market House and the revitalization of City Dock. The meeting was broadcast on the City’s television station and we were able to obtain a copy of the presentation which we are presenting here as a video. Each slide is 15 seconds long, but feel free to pause as needed.

From this presentation, it is obvious that there has been little progress. Just last week, The Capital alluded that Lehr-Jackson was planning to have occupancy by the October boat shows. According to this presentation, there are more committees and hemming and hawing to be done before anything moves on.  We have heard that Lehr-Jackson’s proposal is contingent on being able to sell beer and wine at the Market House. This presentation indicates that alcohol is prohibited by City Charter. Will this be a deal killer?

What about the Sustainable Business Alliance who is now calling for a halt to all negotiations and looking to start over with their hand picked consultant? Is there a lawsuit in the works against the City from this group?

What are your thoughts on the Market House? Please leave a comment!
