The beginning of public comment from the ITN meeting (7/30/15)

The public comment begins and it is more interactive during this meeting than the typical City Commission meeting. Those commenting could ask questions and either the Commission or the respondents responded to most of them. In an odd comparison, Richard Stowe brought of a piece of forgotten history, at least for me, that dealt with the possible location of United Nations headquarters in Greenwich, Connecticut, rather than its ultimate location in New York City on the East River. He drew a parallel to what is proposed at our beach as an example of a community not wanting what someone else had decided for it. You can read about some of that history here.
