Neighborhood Meeting Scheduled

December 19, 2011 10:12 PM

January 12, 2012
7 pm
Messiah Lutheran Church
5202 Cottage Grove Rd. 

We've finally been able to connect eight schedules with an open room to schedule the neighborhood meeting for this proposal. I'm really looking forward to this meeting so that we can all be on the same page with this proposal in its current form, and we can all listen to each other speak about our hopes and dreams and fears and doubts.

City staff will be hosting and managing this meeting because it is the first time we've, as a city, amended our Comprehensive Plan. The process is just a bit more complex than a "regular" process, so it's good to have them on hand to provide the process guidance and answer questions about the many ordinances and laws that govern development approval.

Alder Jill Johnson (across Cottage Grove Rd. representing District 16) and I will be there to listen carefully and to be able to share information for those who might not be able to come to the meeting. 

I hope you can take this opportunity to learn from city staff and others at the meeting to understand the proposal, the process and the issues that are important to those who attend, and those who speak for those who can't attend. There's a wonderful saying out in the business world these days: Seek first to understand. I hope we use this meeting to do just that, then take our new-found knowledge and understanding to the debating arena of the public hearing.
