Grand Intervention Posts Ideas for Civic Park

Back in mid-July I posted about Grand Intervention, the Norman Lear Center project to gather ideas for how the Civic Center park should be transformed when it gets its Grand Ave. project makeover. At the time I wrote that

Though this is a sort of contest -- the "best" submitted ideas will appear online and in print -- I'd love to see them engage feedback on an ongoing basis through the site. Don't take ideas and then just spring them on interested parties all at once. Let ideas get feedback and be refined as the process occured.

Turns out they listened and not only posted a gallery of selected submissions but quoted my post on that page. They've also added little opinion boxes in the submissions, where others who had written in to weigh in on the various ideas are quoted. I haven't had a chance to read through all the ideas, but I'm so glad to see this kind of dialogue carried out in public.
