Wow, just a few letters to the editor in the Columbia Flier today! Many are worth comment, and I hope to be getting to them soon. Today I would like highlight a particularly positive letter (here is the link, but you have to scroll down a bit).
Lloyd Knowles relates the Jim Rouse speech “It Could Happen Here” to what has occurred in the downtown process over the last year. I wrote a similar post back in early October. It is my hope that Lloyd and I can use this as a basis for a new approach to downtown. I believe together we can get the Coalition for Columbia’s Downtown to stop, “trying to emulate cities of the past.” (Lloyd’s words) Let us not use Georgetown and Annapolis as models, let us work together for a better downtown.
