Quantcast

What price waiting for perfection?

Over and over Evanstonians have argued against whatever was proposed for a particular site, saying "we could do better" than that.

Sometimes the argument carries the day and the project is rejected — as with last week's decision by the mayor to reject the Tilted Kilt.

Sometimes it fails and the project is approved.

What's your favorite local example of where the wait has — or has not — paid off with something better down the road?

You can make a suggestion in the comments below, or send it as a news tip. Examples from the past 10 years or so preferred.

We'll try to put together a reasonably representative list and see if it leads to any useful conclusions.
