Transparency is always a plus in government. When there are bids at stake, there are rights that each organization has for the process to fair. We have had a public process that was wide open. Now it is time to narrow the master proposals and have those selected to refine their proposals and partner with organizations that submitted ideas but not master proposals. Where there could be right now is to answer is reviewing these projects? How were they chosen? What is the total process?

Transparency?? Surely you jest. This is Santa Fe. The only thing "transparent" is the ineptitude of Mayor Alan Webber, who is All PR All the Time.

Here's a thought: why not move city offices from downtown to the midtown campus? You solve lots of parking problems, plus these offices would be easily accessible from any part of town. The city can then lease their buildings downtown for a premium to businesses looking to expand to the Democratic People's Republic of Fanta Se. I'm sure there is no shortage of would-be lessors who would love some prime downtown real estate. (I sound snarky, but think about it - the idea does make sense.)
