Pioneer98 decided to close it up over at Information Swimming.
Davenport Growing Paines is back open after months of inactivity.
Even "The Fly" had a post up about the Promise over on Daily Davenport Politics, but he took it down before hardly anyone could read it. It was fairly middle-of-the-road as usual, although it did discuss the fact that "Special Elections" aren't working out so well lately.
Now if only SnarkyChick would come back, it'd be a renaissance era of blogging.
In other news, the city website has this Media Release: (The meeting sounds kind of invitation only, but if they didn't want others there why do a press release?)
City of Davenport Launches “Campus to Campus Plan”
Following up on the soon-to-be completed Older Commercial Corridor Revitalization Plan, the City of Davenport is launching an effort to continue the revitalization of the corridor between St. Ambrose University and Palmer College of Chiropractic.
Representatives from various businesses and institutions within the area have been invited to begin the process by first defining the project area and sharing initial thoughts about how stronger connections can be created. Invited participants include the anchoring institutions of St. Ambrose University and Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport Schools, businesses and organizations of the Hilltop area.
The meeting will be held:
Thursday, March 5, 2009
JB Young Junior High School Cafeteria,
1702 Main Street
Wider public participation will be sought once the project’s parameters are further defined through the input gathered at this initial meeting. If you have questions, please contact Matt Flynn; Senior Manager-Planning Division; Community Planning and Economic Development Department
This is one of the better ideas to come out of the corridor study. It would basically make the area between Ambrose and Palmer into somewhat of a campustown area that serves both colleges. I won't be able to make the meeting (not sure if its open to the public anyway) but I look forward to hearing more about this process.
