I’ll be offline for a few days to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family. I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving.
Next week will be a very busy week.
On Tuesday, December 3rd, Council will have a public hearing on the Regional Plan at 6:00PM at City Hall. This will be the final opportunity for public comment prior to Council’s December 6th day long retreat at which we will debate changes to the plan.
For several months I have been advocating for changes to the plan, especially in the following areas;
• Land use should offer up a multitude of development choices and not have a preference towards compact development.
• Transportation planning must include adequate planning for automobile capacity and not plan for auto capacity last, as the current draft does.
• The overall plan must be simplified.
It appears that there is support by Mayor Nabours and Councilmembers Brewster and Woodson to make significant changes to the plan including the above concerns.
Your comments and participation is always appreciated.
