Correction: Di Mambro Plan Did Not Come From Mayor’s Task Force
Got a really sweet e-mail yesterday from the mayor's PR chief, Scott Goldstein, that called my attention to a mistake in my September column in D Magazine (not online yet). Helpfully, Goldstein cc'ed the mayor (because, duh, his boss) and Wick (because, duh, actually runs the city). The e-mail:
Good evening, Eric, Your piece on Fair Park in the September magazine was brought to our attention today. You wrote: “Recently, Mayor Mike Rawlings commissioned a task force that came up with a radical new blueprint to fix the State Fair and reinvigorate Fair Park and its neighborhoods. In short, it would restrict the Fair’s footprint at the park. Unofficially it is called the Di Mambro Plan, named for its lead architect, Antonio Di Mambro….” This is totally, unequivocally false.
