More accurately known as Reality Check, the exercise last week brought together more than 300 civic leaders from seven counties to model the future of Tampa Bay using red and yellow Lego blocks.
The participants chose the five best plans, which will be trotted out to various public appearances etc. as part of an ongoing effort called One Bay. Here's a look at the five best (PowerPoint file download).
Unlike other visioning efforts over the past 20 years, this one appears to have some legs to it and strong support from the business community, which has drawn all the elected officials to the same table for a change. The future indeed may lie in one of these collections of Legos. More info on the outcome of the Lego exercise at Reality Check's Implementation page.
