The City has asked Spanish ‘artist’ Jaume Plensa to redesign the ‘Plensa Plaza.”


Mayor Meeker has his director of the City’s Urban Design Center handling the new plan. The Director says Plensa will have plenty of room and flexibility under the new guidelines (News and Observer, 9-4-06). The idea, he says, is “Fayetteville Street needs something eye-catching to pull people in, so restaurants and retail stores will see traffic and open along the sidewalks.” He added, “Plensa can still work from a broad palette and create anything from giant orange globes to a bank of fifty television screens.” (I’m not kidding; that’s a direct quote from the News and Observer.)


As a taxpayer I have to shake my head and wonder at all the money Mayor Meeker is spending on Plensa’s Plaza. But as a Republican, I have to say, I think those orange globes are going to look great in a TV ad next election.
