Master Plan Steering Committee with the P and Z Board…10/21/08

LIVE FROM JARVIS HALL….IT’S THE MASTER PLAN STEERING COMMITTEE…..YEA!!

Mission accomplished on 2 fronts…

The MPSC is now to be televised with no further arbitrary interruption in broadcasting to the residents on Comcast channel 78….

The MPSC and the P & Z Board gathered around the microphones …(yep…microphones…the icing on the cake)…and finally addressed the repealed Overlay Districts…the height limits….and how to proceed to a solution after the knee-jerk demise that led LBTS into the development limbo….that now faces the Town…

First a little housekeeping…to get out of the way….Sunshine Law was requested by many members…but apparently was not to be due to costs for the Atty…..HUH?…This writer gave the Town monies for this expressed purpose…what gives?….

Recycling will be addressed with the Commission next month…after Vice Chair Sandra Booth did her research and found we need to amend our inter-local agreement with Broward County in order to proceed with any type of alternative program to Waste Management…with our liaison required to attend to fill the Commissioners in…

The Overlay Districts…the repeal…the future…the heights…the questions…the interpretations…the laws…the facts…the votes…the Charter…the codes…the Ordinances…the hype…the scare tactics…the personal agendas…the areas of concern…the developers…the landowners…the set-backs…the density…the green space area…the zoning…the past actions of the Town Planner/Attorney/ Commission…..and Old Guard majority….the plan to reach a decision….and a possible ordinance and/or referendum…

These two groups will meet on…

Tuesday… November 18,2008…Jarvis Hall…6:30 pm…(note 1/2 hour earlier)…open to the public

Monday ….December 15, 2008…time not announced…Jarvis Hall…..open to the public

Before the next meeting a list of questions will be presented to the Commission at next Tuesday’s Commission meeting so that at least 3 members of the dais can vote to make a formal request to the Town Attorney …. Town staff and contracted employees…such as Chen and Assoc. to provide the answers…legal…historical…code…etc….collecting all materials to aid in this important endeavor…

All members of this combined effort will receive those materials 2 weeks before the Nov. meeting to have to have time to do their homework…prepared to bring their findings to the table….

In January they will have a meeting open to the public to give additional input…..on a larger scale…

It is the hope of this writer that all those involved in the previous Overlay Districts…or any Comprehensive planning…take the time to contact these members..all…by e-mail or phone…( names are online at the ….http://www.lauderdalebythesea-fl.gov/) so all are not factually or historically ignorant of what came before them….(an e-mail could be sent to Town staff to send to all including the Commission…if requested)…

As expected the Vice Mayor stood to address the members warning them that any action done without the vote of the people will be dire…using the change of the Commission’s majority as the example…he was assisted in his scare tactics by MaryAnn Wardlaw……with her own warnings of the uprise that will surely come…THE SKY IS FALLING….

The Mc-Gang would like you all to believe that the CIC and the referendums already voted on…were for 33 feet…NOT SO!…THE EMPEROR IS WEARING NO CLOTHES….

What will be posted…numerous copies of previous Town plans…documents…minutes…and surprises to let readers have the access to decide on their own….and be involved in the future of this Town…

more to come….
