Good Balanced Reporting

in the Palm Beach Post (thank you, Nicole Janok) on the status of our historic districts and master plan process that appeared in today's edition of the local news section. We have our work cut out for us, but we are addressing the issues as best we can. In fact, we had a meeting this morning with the master plan consultants to chart out how next Thursday will go. That is when the City Commission, Planning and Zoning Board, Community Redevelopment Agency and members from the Stakeholder Advisory Committee will get together and put a finer point on some of the outstanding issues.

Then it is off to prepare the Evaluation and Appraisal Report, required by the State of Florida, updating of the City's existing Comprehensive Plan and creation/adoption of new land development regulations that reflect the public input that we have gathered over the past two years. It will be like a "new world" and something that the City will benefit from for years to come.

Let me know if you have any questions prior to the meeting or anytime during the process.
