One has to ask the question now. Why would Thor make a deal in one week's time before the July 29th final Council meeting when the Parkland issue is still in the state's (not the city's) hands and they have not moved on it?
One would hope the City and Thor come to a good middle of the road deal but where is the urgency? Will the State legislature move on Parkland this year? They don't even meet until January, and Kruger, Savino, and Brooks Krasny have all come out against it previously if the landowner isn't satisfied.
