About 50 people, including Estes Neighbors, attended the Town Council meeting Monday night to support 16 speakers asking the Town Council for modifications in the process to develop a Comprehensive Plan. In an open letter to the Council participating citizens told of their experiences in the stakeholder meetings. The petitioners feel it is unrealistic to compete land use recommendations by June. The petitioners requested mid-course corrections to the 2020 process to ensure greater representation of participants in the final plan decisions. In addition, we asked the Council to leave out premature conclusions about land use until all affected neighborhoods can participate. That includes zoning changes to Estes Drive.
Laurie Cousart gave these remarks on behalf of Estes Neighbors. If you have a comment on the meeting tell us about it.
