Consider this...

I haven't posted recently because it's been an absolutely crazy week at work, but at least I have something to show for it.

Downtown Columbia: A Community Vision is available for review. The description from the County website:

County Executive Ken Ulman announces the next step in the evolution of Downtown Columbia. DPZ is asking for your input and comments on the draft document that is to guide this next step. During the month of October, the County will hold a series of meetings and workshops to provide additional information and to ask for public input.

Please review the framework document available below, attend one or more of the public meetings, and provide the community with your comments. Please feel free to telephone, send an email or fill out a For Your Input form with your questions and comments.

Also on the website is a list of tour dates for the traveling roadshow and a copy of the Town Center traffic study. Feel free to leave comments on the draft here, but if you want your comments added to the official record, you're going to have to go through the official channels -- for instance, this online feedback form.

Get involved. Give it a read.

Lesson learned? Linking to the county web site is a good idea although I think you were unfairly criticized before.

Good job on getting the report out.

My vision for Columbia involves a County Executive who doesn't break his campaign promise to limit the height of the tower.

But I guess I'll have to keep dreaming on that one.

Maybe it's better to have a county executive who governs and does not just continue to campaign. That said, sometimes when leaders learn more about a situtation, they need to change the course. Only idiots stay the wrong course after they know it's wrong.

I disagree with both of the last two.

If you don't think Ulman is continuing to campaign, you don't live in Howard County. Ulman's whole life is campaigning for higher office. Nothing wrong with it - look at Clinton.
