Deja vu

On Monday at 6:30 p.m., the Architectural Review Board and the Planning Commission have scheduled a joint work session. Here’s what they’ll be doing:

This is a joint meeting of the ARB and PC to discuss standing issues and the merits of expanding who has standing to make appeals of ARB decisions to the City Council.

Sound familiar? That’s because the same work session happened three years ago. I was there. 

City Beat readers, it’s time to summon your fortune-telling powers. Which of these three things do y’all think will happen first: the resolution of the ARB standing issue, the denouement of 1200 Prince Edward St., or the opening of the U.S. National Slavery Museum? Leave your answers in the comments section.

    If you had voted for me for mayor you wouldn’t have all these loose ends still hanging. Nobody takes care of business like a Drunken Tree Sloth.
