Still Looking For Kansas City Bright Ideas
No hateration intended . . . I'm actually quite impressed with this broad OR ANYBODY who can attain a job entitled . . . "Chief Innovation Officer"
Accordingly, here's the latest report on a glorified science fair from Mayor Sly and company . . .
From the City’s Chief Innovation Officer: Bright Ideas for KC Neighborhoods
Deets . . .
"The Mayor’s Challenge Cabinet is now tasked with the difficult work of narrowing down the top projects to be represented at the Ideas Fair on Saturday, October 26. This event will bring together community leaders and their best practices for projects that you can try in your own community while celebrating one of our city’s greatest assets – our neighborhoods. Ideas submitted include community gardens, public safety initiatives, addressing blight, economic development, communications and community pride."
And while the temptation here is to make fun . . . Let's remember that the Mayor and Council have only thought to double down and throw good money after bad in the midst of economic crisis . . . So new ideas might not be a horrible thing after all.
