Davisville, 4/20/15: Out on the Innovation Center listening tour

Davis City Council members Rochelle Swanson, Robb Davis

Davis City Council members Rochelle Swanson and Robb Davis are hosting a “listening tour” this spring to collect comments and questions from the Davis public about the proposals to build one or more innovation centers in town.

Here's some context, plus a sample of what they've heard so far.
