The Planning Dept Wants Your Two Cents

Hate that new monster home across the street from you that never should’ve gotten the thumbs up? Now’s your chance to speak up.

The Planning Department acknowledges a perceived public lack of trust in its discretionary review (DR) process that ultimately approves, rejects and modifies proposed building projects. As part of its improvement efforts, the Department is currently seeking addresses of projects that have been approved and/or built which did not resonate well with the public. The Department wants to analyze these projects in the context of DR reform.

This is your chance to speak up! If you’re aware of a project wherein you believe the DR process failed, please send the site address (and, if possible, the permit number or DR case number) to Elizabeth Watty ( by January 24, 2010. The Department’s goal is to analyze these projects in time for the next hearing on the subject that will take place on Febuary 22nd.
