'r ] I 1 III Give Chiofaro a Break Kudos to City Councilor John Tobin for wanting to know why the Menino administration is block- ing construction of water'front towers that could pay up millions in property taxes. Said Tobin, "Why is the city turning its nose up at all this potential tax revenue? I will call the BRA director and ask him what is preventing the city from moving this project forward." Tobin believes moving swiftly to approve Chiofaro's plans to replace the Harbor Garage with a $I billion project next to the New England Aquarium. Menino opposes the plan calling it a "stairway to heaven." The mayor needs to get over his moody blues over replacing a garage with a 40-story office building and a 59-story condo/hotel skyscraper that would generate $18 million annually in real estate taxes. Menino says it is not about the money but "about planning a city." Also, adding, "We have to balance what we're doing." What about the people who abut the property? What do they want ... we are not into harebrain ideas? Recently, the Boston Redevelopment Authority issued new height guidelines for the Greenway limiting buildings top no more than 20 stories. BRA director John Palmieri says the ball is in Chiofaro's court saying, "we are waiting for them." Chiofaro keeps repeating that the 20-story height limit doesn't make economic sense for him. Palmieri says he wants the right kind of development, but what the BRA and the mayor's office sees as right is keeping a 7-story garage alive endlessly.
