FOCUS Magazine articles now up-to-date

Yay me, and Scribd to the rescue…

The remaining three FOCUS Magazine articles are up. They are, in order:

  • Overdue: rethinking the library (May 2008) The February to March lockout exposed library board dysfunction. But perhaps it’s about time we thought about a new building, as well.
  • Let’s demo co-development (June 2008) The synergistic power of providing physical space for the airing of new ideas helps nurture the type of economic development advocated by Jane Jacobs.
  • Why a bowling green makes sense (July 2008) One of the key downtown blocks is being re-envisioned — unfortunately without a unique and quirky landmark.

  1. I agree, the bowling green is super quirky and charming. With modern development completely surrounding it, the framing of the anachronism would be perfected.

    And yes, the triangle building has got to be a joke. The first thing that comes to mind is that it is on an intersection – good traffic, good for business. Put a square (normal) building on the property, the rest should be street level commercial with a big patio for a cafe on the corner. Considering what else is around it, this area could become a destination for people who currently – and soon will – live near by; imagine that.
