"It is envisioned that as the redevelopment of the district area occurs, the Citizens' Master Plan will serve as a framework for any future Revitalization Plans under the County's Comprehensive Plan," (emphasis added)
(1) Resolved, the contention that underlies the Tax Increment Financing (TIF) employed under the CMP [p. 31] – the contention that County expenditures made under TIF will be paid for by enhanced revenue from Parkside – and so will not really incur any expense to the County – is a groundless and irresponsible claim.(2) Resolved, contrary to the contention made in the CMP [p, 1,] there is no meaningful "private/public partnership" between TEAM Port Charlotte and the Commission in the implementation of the PRP, nor should there be.(3) Resolved, the Commission has failed to justify its selection of the Parkside district [p.4 and elsewhere] over other districts in the County for "revitalization;" it has failed to establish its competence for "revitalizing" Parkside, and it has failed to establish why it should be focusing County funds on any select district, as opposed to the County as a whole.
(1) Each debate will consist of an opening statement, rebuttal, and two rounds of counter-rebuttal.(2) Following documented acceptance of challenge, an interval of up to two weeks will be allowed for opening statements; one week for rebuttals, and one week for counter-rebuttals.(3) The total word-count allowed to each advocate for the opening statement; rebuttal, counter-rebuttal 1; counter-rebuttal 2 will be up to 600; 300; 300; 300, respectively.(4) In the rebuttals and counter-rebuttals, advocates may, for purposes of response, reproduce prior passages of their opponent without such passages counting against their allowable word-count.(5) Should a commissioner disagree with any statement or argument made by the Commission's own advocate, he or she may express such disagreement in an addendum to the pertinent phase of the debate, and this shall not be counted against the allowable word-count. (Barring such dissent, commissioners will be individually accountable for the statements and arguments put forth by the Commission's advocate.)(6) The transcript of the email debate will be posted on the Commission's website as part of the public record.
