Packet for Tuesday: https://normal.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/4067
Uptown was planned by Doug Farr from Chicago. He is the source of no street parking, just like Chicago. Next Normal was advised by Lyle Sumek, he lives in Florida. He got fired. Tuesday night the Council will approve this:
Does Chris Koos keep hiring consultants so he has somebody else to blame if plans don’t work? Is Chris Koos not capable of local planning? The “professional staff” can’t research and make recommendations? Are students at the University of Wisconsin in Madison going to be making recommendations for Normal now?
This statement sums up what Chris Koos signed up for:
Let me interpret: Capitalism bad, government needs to “imagine” your future because they are way smarter than you individuals who make bad decisions. (Karl Marx 101)
That statement is on a linked page from the Mayor’s Innovation Project: https://cows.org/building-the-high-road/
That page is from one of the founders, Joel Rogers: https://mayorsinnovation.org/what-we-do/
You might recognize that name from the Obama Administration. His organization is called COWS (yes I’m still laughing), Center on Wisconsin Strategy.
A quick search shows who Joel Rogers is:
Normal will be getting advice from an organization that prefers collectivism, hates capitalism, and hates your freedom to make your own decisions. Congrats Normal. This group perfectly proves how college kids enter school patriot and exit indoctrinated in Marxists ideology.
The Council will also be reviewing the newly released financial statement, now 6 months old. They will also hear the Financial Trend and Condition Report.
