  1. Spirit Square
    County Commission provides and protects so many of the things that makes us a community – Parks, schools, libraries.

    I know that a consultant is looking at the future of Spirit Square and the Main library & I’m concerned that they are considering this as just real estate, not as important centers of community activity.

    Please tell me that this study will honor the CIVIC value of this site, not just the dollar value.

  2. Where, in city or county government, would creatives, visionaries and futurists find the keenest ears?
