Bus Riders' Union vs Developers: Should Tucson "Develop" the Ronstadt Transit Center?

For years, developers have been eyeing the Ronstadt Transit Center on Congress Street for redevelopment. This idea was raised again in late 2012. In February, the Tucson City Council decided (once again) not to move the Ronstadt Transit Center out of downtown (a move which developers have been pushing for for years). Instead, the council decided to open a 60-90 day public comment period, collect input, and determine what should be done about redevelopment.

The above video was shot at a public forum sponsored by the Bus Riders' Union. Approximately 250-300 citizens packed the Rialto Theater for this event.
