Art museum proposal needs more scrutiny

Dear Editor:

Once again, Andy Stone hits the proverbial nail squarely on the head with his column on the “Trojan Horse” that is the new art museum proposal at the corner of Hyman and Spring streets.

The city is acting as though they, not the developer, lost the court case. It is disturbing to see the city now orchestrating the approval process for a similar project to the one they so soundly rejected on the grounds of mass, height and scale.

The new proposal, at the very least, should be the subject of a full review process, and judgments should be made on the merits of the application. The community deserves at least this much.
