Remember, although this administration has been great about supporting good ideas and helping others move the city forward, there exists nobody within the city to think of ideas, plan things and actually do anything.

Far as I know, a degree requirement has yet to be put into the "city planner/zoning director" position...

The city's "redevelopment company", WRAP, is still headed up by an accountant/lawyer.
