Why is the grand prize $500k and not a contract to build?
  • Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) is a federal program, and that is how the program is designed. Some of the city council members had the same question, but recipient cities have no say in the award allocation. We had an opportunity to participate as a grant recipient, and as such, we have no control over how the prize money can be used.  We view this as an amazing opportunity to collect many innovative ideas for our city from some of the best minds in the fields of urban planning and design and other disciplines.
