Twentynine Palms, Ca- Today’s edition of the local newspaper’s thought-provoking Editorial encourages citizens to get involved with THEIR Project Phoenix and writes:
Things are starting to happen with Project Phoenix, the long-smoldering plan to revitalize downtown Twentynine Palms but not before the Twentynine Palms City Council sits down to rethink the project based on less money available to bring everything together.
This will give residents, those who support Project Phoenix in its current form and those who think the money could be better spent in other ways, the opportunity to comment on plans as they stand and how they could be altered to give the city the biggest bang for the buck.We urge city officials to make the Project Phoenix reevaluation process as open as possible and to give residents as many chances as possible to provide their input into a process which could have positive impacts on the city for generations to come.
We urge residents to take advantage of the opportunity to study the plan as it stands and to provide any thought or opinions they can, not only about what they think should not happen but also about what they think should happen to inject some new life into downtown Twentynine Palms.
Project Phoenix, if it goes well, will benefit everyone. Likewise, if it goes poorly it will be a burden to everyone. We therefore urge everyone to bring their voices to any discussion of the future of Project Phoenix and, by extension, the fire of Twentynine Palms. For more from the Desert Trail>LINK
