^Interesting. Well, the sculpture is definitely why it won, as without those points the bid would have gone to Agency.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

At the NEFAR meeting today, Lori Boyer gave a 2-3 year development timeline for the Landing Park. She also mentioned that they would like an art design committee to decide whether to work with Jefre and his plans for the Jax sculpture or to move forward with another artist altogether

2-3 years? Hmm.

Hmm wasn't this the timeline 2.5 years ago? Let me know when the money to construct is fully programmed in the budget. It's looking like another administration will have to figure this one out.

Can they proceed with the park design, with involvement of the new Resilience Officer, and leave a space for the sculpture whenever they settle on a design? Just make sure whatever is designed ("lerp" or something else) fits the pad?

I like the ramp up to the Main Street Bridge, too. It seems to be part of the park, rather than the typical switch-back ramp.
