Forest City has not changed their original plan at all. They didn't even commit to the money for an arena under Plan 'B' yet.
They they still win this license with only a $25M giveback to the historical society and $1M a year to a city community fund, then this is a farce.

That and, they get the best of both worlds. Pittsburgh gets a casino in an area away from most residential areas and the Hill gets new development. If he would get the license and Plan B goes through, it turns out as a win-win-win for everyone involved.
I still remain certain the Pens will stay regardless of who wins the license. The governement leaders of this area may be pretty inept, but, I really don't think they'd be THAT stupid as to let the Pens leave town.
