Public Participation Encouraged!

First of all, I want to thank all of you for your positive comments related to the creation of this "Blog". As we get into review of the various Master Plan documents products: Comprehensive Plan, Evaluation and Appraisal Report and the supporting Land Development Regulations - I think it will become a helpful tool in discussing and refining the documents that will lead the City down its path of future development. To think that the City of Lake Worth will have a coherent set of land development regulations astounds the mind. Well, at least mine for now - I think others will most definitely see the benefits over time.

One of the more important reasons that I started this "Blog" was not just to help get my word out - but to provide a way for you to offer your comments. As we all know, time is limited during public meetings and this may be a way for you to publicly comment as you would in a meeting - only on your own time, in the comfort of your own home, the library, the coffee shop - where ever you can find access to a computer and the Internet.

Just click on the comment button and "go to town". I am going to try to be very "light" with my editing - but if things get towards the objectionable realm, then I will crack down. We'll see how it goes. If you do comment, please refrain from personal attacks and try to remain focused on the good of the City and our community. It should go without saying that we should treat others as we wish to be treated. So, with that said, please govern yourselves accordingly.

But, most importantly, don't forget to make it fun and interesting.
