The problem here is that you invested too much hope in a project that was implausible in the first place.
Their plans met resistance from NIMBYs and a vain city council offended that they weren't treated like co-developers. The endless delays and fussing over the scheme killed it, simple as that. By the time these guys 'failed to show up to the city council meeting', their plan was already so raped as to be unrecognizable. Sure there's plenty of blame to go around here but were it not for that energy company, this proposal wouldn't even exist!

The developers came with a vision and left with a lesson in why Midland's downtown still looks like sh!t.
