More opposition to Art Stop (Letter to editor)
July 6, 2012
Dear Alderman Zielinski:
I believe that you are well aware that I am not a fan of this Art Stop project. While I think the Triangle is worthy of something more than it has now, this design that has been chosen doesn’t even match your original specifications that you and your committee put together. Choosing a design that is less than perfect is an absolute shame.
The fact that none of your committee even bothered to engage transit users, the people who will primarily use any structure that is put there, is also a shame.
This process of the Art Stop has been less than community based, and frankly, we as residents deserve better.
I know you are eager to get Mr. Dombrowski’s money, but this project is not the right way to get it.
At the meeting in April, many people requested the committee start over to get a design that was a better fit. You ignored all of those responses, including mine. That is yet another shame.
