Most interesting part

In fact, it appears that the city's last-minute downscaling of the amusement district was a terrible misplay: By okaying a hotel on Sitt's land before getting him to give up the amusement district, the city has effectively given up any leverage it had over the developer — especially since as part of Recchia's amendments adopted last week, the city agreed not to use eminent domain to obtain any land in the amusement district.

Bolding added for clarity.
