For Those Not Keeping Score at Home…
The Comprehensive Plan public hearing is over –43 people spoke in front of the Planning Commission. So what was the temperature of the room? Well, let’s see.
Keep in mind that this is a completely non-scientific poll. When it came to criticism or support of the comprehensive plan, it was hard to determine who came down for or against. Some people expressed a mix–approval of some parts and hatred of others. For the most part, people stayed on track–either for or against. This is my take. Someone else might have seen things differently.
Clearly in favor: 3
Clearly opposed: 34
Undecided (as far as I could tell): 6
I think it is safe to say that the public response to the plan was overwhelmingly negative.
Vote by the Planning Commission is forthcoming.
