Fixing Tacoma in 10 Easy Steps
Tom Llewellyn, artist; writer; and fine, upstanding member of Tacoma society, has some suggestions on making Tacoma a better place. He shared his list today with the City Council, via an opinion piece in The News Tribune titled "Some Modest Proposals for Improving Tacoma."
For your consideration, I propose the following 10-point citywide improvement plan for 2014, in priority order. Accomplish these things and you’ll have a happier group of voters. And the other 80 percent – the ones who don’t vote – will likely be happier, too.
Llewellyn's 10 points range from the practical - build more on-campus housing for UWT - to the things we've heard (and wished for) before - lure an Ethiopian restaurant to town - to the somewhat exasperated and highly topical - give away free DIY pothole repair kits. There's also more than a hint of whimsy, and it sparked our curiosity.
Build an official city robot. Because robots are cool.
What would an official City of Tacoma robot look like? What would it do? We want to know! Let's crowd-source this one - send us your drawings of what a city robot would look like, and we'll post them here.
