Change in tone over ShoWare?

After reading Steve Hunter's story on the Kent City Council's recent approval of an economic study of the ShoWare Center (April 20), it occurred to me the council's current rationale for owning an event center has changed over the past five years.

As an example, see Reporter stories from July 7 and 21, 2008 (www.kentreporter.com/news/22948384.htmlwww.kentreporter.com/news/25600309.html).The theme in 2008 seemed to be "no worries."

The City of Wenatchee can attest that hope is not a plan when applied to an event center.

What is Kent's plan for future years if large subsidies for the ShoWare Center need to continue?
