“We can consider this phase one,” he said.
Tiffer said he was confident that Navtours could offer a workable plan but said that company officials need reassurance that the council will continue to work with them.
He agreed with Jackson’s assertion that the city needs a comprehensive plan for the waterfront and rest of the city.
“A lot of processes need to be finalized in order to even begin to plan for the waterfront,” he said.
Tiffer also said that some of Ducatte’s ideas might be able to be incorporated with Navtours’ plans.
“Navtours’ plan focused more on the docks and ours more on the moorings,” he said.
EYES WIDE OPEN
Councilor James Calnon (I-Ward 4) said that reviewing Ducatte’s plan gives the city a better understanding of the potential of the waterfront.
“If nothing else, it will make us better negotiators,” Calnon said.
“We will go into these negotiations with our eyes wide open.”
