All of it!
This plan is so chock-full of good ideas that they become a liability. The thirty-six recommendations in the final plan all have sub-initiatives, up to nine of them, with budgets ranging from less than $50,000 to over $1 million, and implementation timelines ranging from one to twenty years. Limited city budgets and a tangled bureaucracy will struggle to realize the majority of the goals. Tellingly the first action item of sorts has to do with getting the city’s own house in order: “Implement a strategic plan for DCASE to closely align resources and staff with the goals of the Plan.” In other words, a plan to make a plan.
