Voices for Choices Townhall Tomorrow

Between the election and everything else, I've been delinquent in blogging about this. Voices for Choices is a vast collaborative effort to create a broad conversation about the economic future of Northeast Ohio. You can read up on V4C's website and sign up for updates. You can also find some blog entries about the effort here and here. I haven't seen it blogged on the usual suspects.

Where will it go? Remains to be seen. Surely the conversation will go well beyond facile ideas like subsidizing hipster entities to attract 20-somethings. Good people are involved in the effort. But attempts to generate economic development are fraught with difficulties both in execution and evaluation. Still, if this is the only bus heading that direction, I'll jump on board and see where it goes.

I can carve out time for the first half of the meeting tomorrow. I'll post what I saw.
