Our meeting Monday night with Planning Department staff got the attention of two local news outlets. Below is a link to one report on WTVD, Channel 11. It frames the issue as one of preservation, which is very much how we see this remapping challenge.
One thing, though, that was clear in the meeting is that there is no one in the City administration who is going to make sure our priorities are reflected in the new zoning regime–that’s up to us. Planning staff really only act as a reference resource for the Planning Commission and City Council. They don’t act in a conventional advisory role.
So, while the meeting was good to clarify some issues, this is only one step on a long journey.
