In 1998, the voters of Dallas, Texas voted to fund the Trinity River Project. Time passed, and $600 million was spent overbudget.
Last year, a proposal was made to install a high-speed toll road in the middle of what was supposed to be the central and crowning glory of a beautiful urban park.

The Dallas mayor disagreed with the community organizers.
The community organizers filed an open records request.
Through this, they have successfully established that the high-powered consultant brought in by the city didn’t think the toll road was such a great idea, either.
