Four of you are Councilors because you campaigned on Missing Middle Reform along with Engagement and Transparency. Waiting for the resolution of the lawsuit means waiting for YEARS and that is unacceptable. Do you want the next election to be run again on Missing Middle Reform while you’ve been Missing in Action?
Monthly neighborhood meetings MUST BE YOUR PRIORITY. Where residents know they can show up to stay informed about Planning, Budgeting, Development, Parks & Rec, Police & Fire, Bond Initiatives, Transit and even hear from their council representatives.
Highlights from September 5 Council Meetings
I have a simple request today but I am not sure how to get my voice heard and a proposal executed in a timely manner.
They keep scheduling meetings at locations where they can’t provide online access and they make no effort to record the events for later viewing. They continue to refuse to provide the same level of access they demanded from the CACs. These are CHOICES they are making. And they are CHOOSING to provide the minimal amount of public access required by open meeting laws.
By imposing restrictions on speaking time, you are excluding valuable input and shutting down important conversations that need to take place. Each member of our community deserves the opportunity to be heard, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES.
Highlights from work session and afternoon session
Please do us all a favor, spare us from the dramatics of making us believe that 1) policy matters and 2) that community engagement is the key to a progressive, vibrant city for ALL if you are going to deliberately ignore the voices of SOME.
Highlights from July 5 Council Meetings. Council on hiatus until August 15.
To date, there hasn’t been any communication on project status unless specifically requested by residents. So again I ask, please direct this to the appropriate committee so there is a path forward. We may be achieving the objective of slowing motorists but I don’t think we are achieving that goal in the safest, most effective manner.
