Most of us "joined the conversation" a decade ago.

The city has yet to join. And when they attempt to do so, it costs us 400 grand and appears to be no more than a sheen of uselessness.

Worried about infrastructure costs? The experts and ENGAGED citizens have been telling them what the solutions are for years. Stop building more infrastructure, and work to increase density on the infrastructure we've already built.

  • No aerotropolis
  • No casino
  • No minimum parking requirements
  • No stadium
  • No unnecessary demolitions
  • No tax breaks for parking lots and empty buildings
  • Yes livable streets
  • Yes progressive zoning
  • Yes transit improvements
  • Yes walkability and cycle plan priorities

But staff and council can't understand these concepts so they keep hiring more and more consultants, waiting for one of them to give them the answer they want.

It's not tough to understand...
