Around the 2:00 mark in this Pro8News video, the mayor's face lights up as he giddily proclaims "They (visitors) are coming over here to spend MONEY, My Gosh!". I guess that's a lot more valuable to the city than it's history.
Not even Spanish Colonial architecture from the mid 1800s is safe when the city wants to land its grubby hands on money, money and More money. And for what? To build an $18M baseball field for out of town opportunists?
