"The municipal council in Xbury has decided to rebuild a central area in town. The plans are drawn up and the project can begin. It occurs to the council members that oposition to the proposed project might emerge after it is actually launched. They decide to (a) arrange an open discussion at Town Hall, and (b) initiate a competition for suggestions allowing all residents to propose their vision for the area in question.
During the Town Hall meeting, experts brought in by the council tell the public how many resources have been invested already in the project and point out the advantages of the existing plan. Criticism from the floor is unorganized; the experts subtly communicate, both verbally and non-verbally, that what they're hearing from the crowd is amateurish and not very feasible. In the closing remark by a council member, however, the public is thanked for its 'genuine interest,' and the council's appreciation is 'deeply expressed.' As for the competition, most of the suggestions are characterized as 'creative, but unrealistic.' Some ideas that do not affect the form of the council's original plan are incorporated into it with a good deal of publicity.
The local media characterize the process as a good example of civic participation and governmental responsiveness."
