Interesting article about community input into bonuses awarded to contractors on the Minneapolis light rail project.


My question to all the Mr. Anonymouses out there is this: What do you think about community-input-driven bonuses? Should they be more specific? Or should the owner simply include community-related concerns in performance measures within contracts?


(This question is ­NOT about the merits or drawbacks of light rail in general– it’s about the role of community stakeholders in awarding contractor bonuses.)
