Heh, and I was wondering whether to be happy about the following email. On one hand its nice to have another chance to voice our hopes, but they did generate lots of malleable stats.
Dear Listening to the City participant:
While the public agencies have ignored our call for a thorough public process for rebuilding Lower Manhattan, you can still make your voice heard. The Civic Alliance has prepared a worksheet for evaluating the seven LMDC plans for the WTC site to be released this week. I encourage you to visit the Civic Alliance website (www.civic-alliance.org), print the form
(www.civic-alliance.org/pdf/scorecard.pdf) and refer to it when you view the designs. You can then return to the website and enter your scores, which we will tabulate and publicize.
This is far from an ideal public process, but we must start somewhere. I hope you will continue to call and write to the public agencies to urge them to hold the public process that we deserve.
