They're still in the appeal window, but I can't imagine they'd have any chance of success at that.

I can’t imagine they won’t file an appeal, given the sunk costs for the project thus far. I also can’t see the city council approving the appeal, over the objections of Public Works.

I mean, that's the opposite of how one is supposed to think about sunk costs, but yeah.

How dare you make me look up the correct usage of “sunk costs”. I’m a planner, not an economist :lol:

I'd say you're both right -- rationally, people shouldn't consider the sunk costs, but people aren't always rational.

I mean, it's called the sunk costs fallacy for a reason.

They did appeal. Zoning and planning committee delayed their vote. I would recommend writing your council member if you want this drive thru stopped.
