Building on Strengths
Speck took the unusual step of moving to the town with his family to develop the plan over 8 months.
In this editorial, The Lowell Sun team is effusive about Speck's vision:
"Speck's drama unfolded from the simple and inexpensive ways to transform the city -- painting bicycle paths onto the city's widest streets -- to the sublime -- a $100 million waterfront project that would be the envy of any similar-sized city in America."
The Sun says that although the project is ambitious, it is broken down into long-, medium- and short-range plans.
