Red Car Property: Why Is The City Doing Such A Good Job On Brush Clearance When The Private Property Is For Sale?

Photo: Jonathan Vandiveer, September 6, 2012.  The City has been doing some really heavy duty brush clearance on the Red Car Property since the private property was listed for sale in July.  It just seems like the City is trying to help the developer get more money for the property.   (Click on photos to enlarge.)
