EarthPork Update: Down to Riverside and Pella

From the Des Moines Register:
Organizers of Earthpark, the proposed environmental learning center, announced today that two communities have emerged as finalists for the $150 million project.

Development organizations in Riverside and Pella submitted financial packages to Earthpark directors that met or exceeded the $25 million in local funding stipulated last spring by the Earth Park board of directors...

...David Oman, the executive director of Earthpark, is scheduled to discuss the decision that led to selection of the two communities at a 3 p.m. news conference today.

Does David Oman really think that over million people a year are going to come to Riverside, much less Pella?

Pork, pork, pork, pork, pork, sueeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyy!
