When a project generates a significant amount of public interest or meets a certain threshold for public investment, it is better policy to give direction to negotiate a contract and then allow council time to read the actual contract before voting for its approval. As a former real estate attorney, I know there’s a significant amount of changes that can occur in the details of the contract that don’t necessarily track to the initial term sheet.
