a PARC website task assignment!

JJ,

The LCC CPA data’s long-term disposition actually looks to be the USGS ScienceBase catalog.

If the USGS ScienceBase team is good about working collaboratively, then hosting the data and metadata with them, then importing ArcGIS REST services into online mapping applications on our site, will save us time, increase data quality, and increase availability (via discoverability from other USGS collaborations with science.gov, etc).

On the other hand, if USGS ScienceBase Catalog is understaffed and not great working collaboratively, then they’ll end up costing time instead of saving time (nagging to post, etc).

Anyway, just something to think about from the data management side of the communication puzzle.

Scott, none of this is intended to sway you from exploring the potential of Mapbox – I’m somewhat biased to know more about ArcGIS online because I’ve used it before. I have no experience with Mapbox.

All,

I would vote for the design to include both sides. This has several benefits:
1. We have seen this is tedious and I would hate to see the other side not finished when we have the chance 2. Logistically one attempt would be easier
3. I like that the mural would have greater continuity

Update on DOT approval. For those of you who do not know….We are working with David Brace at the City of Knoxville to get the TDOT approval. Last week I sent David the grant submittal so he would have a good understanding of the project. I spoke with him this morning and he is going to set up a meeting with me TDOT, Peggy Brady, someone from the public arts committee and anyone else on our committee to view the site and have a general discussion. He said it would be in a couple of weeks. David is handling everything with TDOT. He doesn’t see it as a problem to get approval but did say there are hoops to jump through. He is aware of the TDOT program in Memphis. He seems to really support the project.
He also followed up will an email saying to watch for the meeting request. I will let you all know when it comes.

My two cents: It’d be nice to stay on our side of “the tracks”. We could consider talking to groundswell folks about an exhibit. I know a lot of those people. Its not much smaller than the birdhouse & its closer…. just an FYI. When you have the november 28 mtg place/time set can I hear about it? Would love to help!!! 🙂

These are Calvin’s notes from the last meeting. Terry contacted me last week about writing the article in the paper. I’m still working on finding a space for the first friday events. I believe the next meeting was set for November 28? Hopefully we will have a draft of the competition rules to revise and finalize then.

See attached. May need some cleaning up, but I wanted to get it out versus waiting.

Thanks.

p.s. please copy me in outgoing email

p.s.s. Arin Streeter suggested Birdhouse as an exhibit venue. Have you heard of it?

Well, that might also depend on the artist. If one artist designed two parts, then it might make sense to keep them both the same thematically. If two separate artists painted the sections, then it might lend itself better to have two separate themes, but at the same time historically linked. Im considering the fact that artists have different styles. Make sense? You never know, the artist could become attached to the project and might want to do both sides regardless. That portion would have to be hammered out for the artists call for proposals.

Thanks, Calvin. Yup–2 parts. The "part" that I am equivocating about is whether the design is one or two parts. Opinions?

I did find three typos. 🙂 The more serious problem is that I did not realize until this evening when we returned from the lake (where I was working on the proposal) and drove past the underpass that there are actually EIGHT panels–4 to a side or 4 to an end of the underpass, depending on how you look at it.

There is not enough money to do all eight. Soooo…..I chose to look at the 4 panels at the Washington Ave end as the "Parkridge panels" and the focus of this project. The panels at the Glenwood end are "Old North panels" and are a separate project. I am hopeful that successful Parkridge panels will leverage the Old North panels.

Hope this is OK. As many times as I have walked through that underpass, you’d think I’d have a better mental image of it. I guess the fact that I don’t says something about how much I don’t want to remember its awfulness!

OK, All,
Here is the complete application. I hope I found all of the typos! Let me know by 9 PM tonight if you find errors or something I’ve said that is wrong, etc. I’m sending it to the CDC early tomorrow AM and then carrying it to Parks and Rec after lunch tomorrow–unless I find out that I can just email it to Valerie.
Thanks for all of the input so far! This will be a wonderful project for the neighborhood if we are lucky enough to get the $$.
