Normally, you would expect this headline on April 1st. But alas, here it’s July and someone is dead serious about it. Last week, the City held a planning session with the design consultant hired (at a cost of $150,000) to develop a new vision for City Dock.
True to form, this process has been committee’d to death with the 25 + person City Dock Advisory Committee (complete with bright orange vests) and a six person consultant team representing five companies. But no committee is complete without input from the public. And specifically, that is why nothing will get done and this will prove to be another costly, wasted exercise.
