The Secret Plan Online
The City of Ann Arbor has posted the six proposals submitted for the Library Lot (319 S. Fifth) on their RFP website.
I have only recently obtained a (bad) copy of the Secret Plan (originally submitted with a date of May 2009).
Students of the subject may like to examine it for comparison to the Valiant Partners’ most recent proposal and to others. A text-only version (no images) is here.
UPDATE: AnnArbor.com has a story on the proposals that includes some nice pictures and an overview of each. I’ll be doing an analysis of the four development proposals tomorrow. I have had difficulty in downloading the Dahlmann Part I proposal. I’d be interested to know if others have experienced that problem.
SECOND UPDATE: Actually, when I said I’ll be doing an analysis, I meant “I’ll be starting to read them in depth tomorrow”. Watch this space, but don’t hold your breath. It’ll be another day or so.
Note: the city has posted the time and place of the Advisory Committee meeting, 11:00 a.m. on December 4th in the 6th floor conference room (a very small room). That is encouraging.
With regard to the download problem: the Dahlmann part 1 file is 38 MB. I was never able to download it with my Firefox browser but my inhouse computer guru was able to get it with Internet Explorer.
