Here’s The Scoop #8… 9/12/08 Commission Meeting…The Death Knell…

from the continuation Commission meeting….for 9/12/08….at 3 pm…9/15/08…

WE WAS DUPED!…

The repeal of the Overlay Districts were a “knee-jerk” reaction…in hind sight…done too fast….done thinking they would be addressed ASAP and thinking they returned to 3 over 1 ……not 3 stories…..we did not do our homework….

Those very clever M & M & Fs ….duped all those but their closest co-conspirators …to keep this town with no chance to improve and develop in any form or fashion……

They have successfully circled the wagons and tied the hands of the Master Plan Steering Committee…essentially relegating them become inconsequential …so there will be no interference …no progress… thus ensuring nothing will happen….and the Town will stagnate……

In a condescending manner…the Vice Mayor cajoled the MPSC Chair Paul Novak…with talk of not wanting to put too much on the committee’s plate…except the El Mar Drive project..(brought to the table at the last MPSC by Marc Furth)…….exclaiming it …. the MPSC “big project”…..

McIntee talked of the $1 million in escrow from Oriana…like he had it in his hand and it was ready for deal…….GOOD LUCK!…Oriana needs to get its CO……previous posts…

Again the Chair of the committee walked away with nothing….just a “direction” of discussing what went wrong with the Overlay Districts with the P & Z…(while being a well intended plan from Comm. Clottey) …it presented more of the same…. just another “time waster”…leading to no action…no remedy to the repeals…

Like a dog whistle…there were those who heard the Death Knell for any new Overlay Districts long ago…and this writer and others foolishly thought it was not so…..well we hear it now….we heard it finally today….

The bravado that came from the Vice Mayor on the dais this day was deafening …..unless there is a vote of the people…..there will be no building over 33 feet….despite the fact that the people already did vote for 3 over 1….along with the CIC!……

What this means to this writer and others who believe in “planned development”…compromise….moving forward…..

Planned development candidates…get your campaign committees ready!….

more to come…..
