Or maybe the title should be “borne back ceaselessly into the past”.
News reaches us that the Boston Convention Center Authority is looking to double its size, but ” they don’t know how much the project would cost or how it would be paid for” (from SHNS, sub req.) I’m going to go out on a limb and say that now is not a great time to be seeking additional funding, particularly with the inference of higher taxes.
The planning approach reminds me of the Governor’s quote about his Readiness Project/education reform package:
The task of figuring out the details will reportedly fall to a 25 member task force of the great and good. Not sure who is part of that group, since the Convention Center Authority’s has no info (as of 2:25 PM this afternoon) and press releases were last updated 363 days ago. (Mac Daniel, call your office!)
And there will be some who say — “but they just started the process”. Actually, the RFP for expansion planning was issued in July 2007.
