This is yet another action by the PAVE group (People Against Virtually Everything) with all the usual and customary names associated with the group. Frank Tyson and the rest of the group will stop at nothing to halt the progress and revitalization of the city. They don't care about the city of the businesses that their actions will harm. Their hatred of John Wessman is boundless and we need to stop this ill conceived petition in it's tracks. Do not sign the petition!

This doesn't look good to me. Bigger is not better. I miss the original Desert Inn. One more misguided eyesore for the citizens to take over if it fails. Where do I sign.

This appears to be the same group as Advocates for Better Community Development. These people are simply obstructionists. They clearly understand that time kills all deals. If you stall long enough projects will die. Meanwhile the vast majority of Palm Springs residents lose out on the momentum of growth. I'm all for careful and thoughtful planning but this organization should be shut down or countersued to drain whatever funding they have.
