Courting Disaster

In the current Feb/Mar Sactown Magazine there is well written piece by Rob Turner on the many reasons why the proposed superior county courthouse should NOT be built on Capitol Mall but instead built over at the other proposed site in the railyards. The list of reasons and examples includes the 2002 East End Project that was also a State funded project that ignored the pleas of the Sacramento review board and was not subject to any authority in how it was built... just how like this building will also be exempt to any design oversight. The article really nails it when it talks about how the area would also have a steady stream of felons and accusers at a site that should be reserved for something special.

The articles called "Courting Disaster" and I highly recommend picking it up or viewing it here.
