Dallas's "Six Key Priorities"

The city council's going on a retreat today and tomorrow -- because, look, sometimes you just need to get away. But they're not going too far: They'll be at the Trinity River Audubon Center, which officially opens October 18. And, at this very moment, the subject at hand is "Updates on Six Key Priorities," a sneak peek at which you'll find here, for those without an invite. Handiest part of the presentation that deals with such subjects as public safety, economic vibrancy, arts and "educational enhancements": It's presented in handy-dandy checklist format, so you can chart the progress made, or not, since the last time the council engaged in long-term planning. --Robert Wilonsky
