Rain Forest: Monday July 17 Update

For those tracking the "progress" on the Iowa Rain Forest by way of this blog the weekly Monday update went up yesterday (July 17).

Not all that much news; Riverside's still hopeful. But not a peep about when that decisive Board meeting (last set for June) will be held -- or even its scheduling announced. Odd, since both Riverside and Pella have asserted they have the requisite $25 million ready to hand over.

As for attractions and economic development generally, there are a number of items about gambling.


[Every Monday since December 2005 there has been a weekly upload to the pre-existing Iowa rain forest Web site I maintain. In all, printed out it would run over 100 single spaced pages; there are, in addition, links to the full text of hundreds of newspaper stories and reports. It is very probably the most complete resource on the topic anywhere on the Web.

It is found at: http://www.nicholasjohnson.org/politics/IaChild.

Over the past few months the scope of the Web site has expanded from the rain forest project to include material related to the broader range of attractions and economic development generally in which the proposed rain forest exists and by which it must be evaluated.]
