A job well done
We commend the city staff, council and residents for the tremendous amount of work and thought that went into the downtown sub area plan approved Monday night. This was truly a team effort and an example of how the public process is supposed to work.
City planning staff, under the leadership of senior planner Glen Pickus, has spent more than a year gathering information from consultants and residents as well as doing its own research. The goal: Reviving the floundering downtown business district while preserving the integrity of the surrounding residential areas.
