Inside City Hall: Behind closed doors, BDC hammers out deals; 

The art of the exemption. Or how to keep news about a city development project out of the media.

‎"Asked why the BDC does not open up more of its meetings, Kimberly Clark replies, “There is a balancing act we have to perform.” She said that proprietary information from developers is reviewed during the closed sessions. If released, such information would spell doom to the developers at the hands of their competitors"

To me this statement openly admits why the BDC completely unnecessary... if there's already enough competition that they need to shield their corporate cronies from, then shouldn't that be good for the city? Guess we don't need to dish out tax breaks in this fiercely competitive market.
