Here’s the latest example of Mayor Meeker’s double standard. Concord-Empire Davie Street, LLC wants to build a mixed-use development downtown and it wants the mayor to build a parking deck to help. John Kane also wants the city to build a deck to help his new project at North Hills.


The Mayor gave Kane’s project the thumbs down.


He told Concord-Empire yes – the city will build a nine level parking deck for them.


Now, why does a condominium project in one part of Raleigh warrant a government subsidy while one in another does not? The answer is the same reason restaurants, supermarkets and hotels downtown receive government subsidies while others do not: Mayor Meeker’s double standard.
