Born out of crisis, the community-wide effort to build the region’s sparkling jewel, “The Diamond” showed what could happen when regional cooperation, a public-private partnership and grassroots support of the citizenry. Conceived in the late spring of 1983, agreed upon in the spring of 1984, designed during the summer and constructed from the end of the season (in less than eight months) to the next. The Diamond opened on April 17, 1985. It was a miracle! How did it happen and what can we learn about vision and teamwork from this Miracle on the Boulevard?
