We aren't certain whether Riata's proposed commercial district on the Bennett Tract at East 11th & I-35 will be a blessing or a blight, but we do know Mathias worked hard to create a development that Eastside neighbors could live with. Even those who hate his project don't hate Mathias. We still wish the city hadn't bailed out the project with public subsidies, but Mathias set a new standard in good-faith community dialogue.
