Let's create an academic free space to explore different options to make new development and redevelopment as good or better than our existing city, towns, villages and hamlets that are already here in Frederick. Just like war is too important to be left to the generals, planning and design are too important for the citizens not to be fully engaged. This group can learn from the many communities around the world that are doing amazing things. We can find a place to have face-to-face conversations, share a common library and allow interaction with visiting students and others. We can bring in world class speakers to inspire us with successes, and we can take group tours of places to experience on the ground different scenarios. Community building is the most exciting thing that citizens can take part in and shape. It is not as boring as reading the phone book or attending long, adversarial fait accompli board meetings. So let's get together, have healthy dreaming sessions and debates and let the best ideas win -- no matter who or where they come from!
