After a couple of trips to court and some tense moments in council chambers, InsolvenCity's 'community conversation on electronic signs and billboards' is scheduled to resume this evening at a public meeting conducted by the Department of City Planning.
A featured guest: Christopher J. Duerksen of Clarion Associates, a Denver lawyer with a handy resume but no obvious reason for participating in Pittsburgh's 'community conversation.'
Also featured: Nancy Clanton, a lighting expert based in Boulder, Colorado.
Can anyone illuminate the funding source for the expedition of two Colorado luminaries to Pittsburgh (likely a $10,000 trip, counting hourly rates, travel and lodging)? Identifying the funding source should shed light on the issue of the purpose of these experts' participation in Pittsburgh's billboard debates.
