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. Few people have turned out for the sessions, even though whatever gets decided could significantly change Davis in the areas of jobs, growth, public services and tax revenue. Here's some context, plus a sample of what they've heard so far.

A 30-minute sampling of indie rock derived from the 1990s and 2000s, fancy subgenres include (but are not limited to): shoegaze, space rock, lo-fi, math rock, dream pop, post-rock, experimental, psychedelic, indie folk, and alternative country. Don't worry--I don't understand what any of those names mean either.
