After watching the press conference, I’m confused as to what was accomplished;

UPDATE: This is Bruce’s video which includes Q & A at end.

And according to the press release;

The next steps for the administration is to use the recommendations as the basis for developing a long-term master plan for the campus. Any major construction or changes to the campus will require budgetary approval by the City Council.

In other words the ‘administration’ will do whatever they want to, and put those numbers into next year’s budget for the rubberstamp council to approve. This project(s) will cost close to $50 million dollars, this is something voters should approve, not a handful of public officials. I also like the bait and switch of the administration when it comes to the ‘recommendations’. Basically they have used the book club as patsies to get the end result they wanted. I could have told you in a 20 minute meeting before the task force even met what needed to be done. What a waste of taxpayer resources and time. Heck, Teri Schmidt probably could have told them in a 5 minute phone conversation.

    If the baseball stadium and convention center are demolished, is this still a ‘Campus’? It just seems like this knitting group should have considered how to promote the complex rather than tear it down.

  3. didn’t noted author and former mayor mmm tell us that if we built the event center out there, all this stuff would come on it’s own? where are all the people moving into the area? where are all the hotels and restaurants that were supposed to be built? where can i pawn my lawn mower and listen to foghat?

  4. how would alex jensen vote?

    Tearing down things and building stuff is what this is all about. Its about making government work for you, well, for those who profit from it, that is.
