I sense that the P&R committee is crafting a new "public/private" partnership (the new lexicon for alignment of private concerns to city interest).
Beware of "public/private" partnerships, it is the new lexicon to define private corporate influence on public/city contracts or favorable planning board influence. Granted it is my limited view of public funding policy,but a large potential donation by a private corporation to fund a public Community Center distorts the normal funding process. If a public building fund requires private donations or a large corporate donor to get off the ground, that speaks volumes as to the lack of PUBLIC support since it is now subsidized by select donors.
I can hear the critics, why would I want to discourage private donations? Because it distorts the public nature of public support. Or as those more astute than myself, it reeks of influence peddling.
