Now THAT'S a public process

From the mayor's press office:

Now THAT'S a public process


From the mayor's press office:

The Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities is co-sponsoring a Forum on the Future of Bus Shelters and Street Furniture with the Next Great City coalition and the Academy of Natural Sciences.  The forum will include presentations from bus shelter and street furniture vendors and present perspectives on the role of advertising in public spaces.

You know, I'm tempted to be snarky about this, but really, why? People care about this stuff, and they should be able to weigh in. Good on the city.

The release also says that the city is inviting ideas for "additional pieces of street furniture." I want swivelly desk chairs in all subway stations.

About this blog
Every year, city government spends slightly more than $4 billion. Where does all that money come from? More importantly, where does it go? Are we getting the most bang for our tax buck? “It's Our Money” is a joint project between Philadelphia Daily News and WHYY, funded by the William Penn Foundation, designed to answer these questions.
