think we have a very good sense of what "the problem" is, but
articulating it on paper would be an excellent exercise. And as
Arthur so eloquently pointed out, we may *think* we know what the
problem is when we don't. We do already have some proposed solutions
in mind, so it's quit possible that we are limiting our vision
I'd love to see some sample RFP's for site re-design - I wonder where
I could get a hold of that.
