Hmm... and said person/project might do well to be in close contact with 
the council (maybe even /on/ the council) as well... which fits in rather 
nicely with the council election season coming up...

Talking about which, those considering running for council may wish to 
pay special attention to the current series of project status updates as 
well, with an eye toward any actions that may be needed to help out 
particular projects, and/or revive/close/merge others.
