The City's LVEC Home Page --
January 17th, 2006
Here's an informal and broad analysis of the City of Kingston's LVEC project
home page as it looked on January 17th, 2006.
What's shaded in BLUE is
structural, the stuff of every web page: logos, navigation menus, etc.
Shaded in GREEN is material that
appears to be current and relevant.
Shaded in PINK is material that is
either incorrect, dated, or of dubious applicability to the North Block LVEC.
Inexplicably, the city has maintained this incorrect, dated, or dubious information
front-and-center in the LVEC materials despite reminders from KCAL that they
should not be doing so.
Incorrect material includes:
- Discussion and concept Images of the Anglin Bay site.
Environmental assessments of the Anglin Bay site.
Zoning materials related to the Anglin Bay site.
that don't, in fact, answer key questions, but instead reinforce
pre-determined outcomes. Note that these "Questions and Answers" are
still Anglin-Bay centric.
Dated material includes:
- Everything by related to the
Steering Committee, which has not met for over six months.
- Since its release the
business plan has not been publicly iterated and refined, as all serious
business plans are. The document is presented as
perfect-upon-first-arrival, as no plans ever are in practice.
Force vision is discredited and dead, yet still occupies a prominent
position on the site.
- Information on all public meetings about the LVEC on Anglin Bay.
Dubious items includes:
Traffic and parking reports, that we believe are seriously
flawed if not
fudged, apply to the Anglin Bay site, not the North Block site. The
Lasalle Causeway is mentioned exactly zero times in the traffic studies.
- The ability to comment with no provisions for feedback to the public about
the number, nature, and tone of comments.
