Our view: It’s time to make a deal


The two sides plan to meet to discuss a possible compromise, and that’s the best that could happen here.

The Historic Commission does not own this property and cannot dictate what will happen to it. It’s possible that Greiner is bluffing, but with a property that architects and historians value so highly, it’s better not to risk losing everything. A compromise may not be what commissioners want, but it seems the best option going forward.
