City hall devastates once-grand plan
By IAN GILLESPIE

Dollard spent three years trying to sell the idea to city hall and he says that just about everyone he talked to seemed to agree this was a grand idea. And after three tireless years of effort, research, phone calls, letters, e-mails and meetings,
