The most important thing we can do to protect our neighborhoods is to assure that the city council is neighborhood friendly. This is not the case at this time. it is most frustrating to attend city council and P and Z meetings and, despite overwhelming opposition to harmful land use changes see these changes approved regardless. The voting seems automatic. The hearings are a charade.
The only effective way this can be stopped is to elect neighborhood friendly council members who will hopefully appoint neighborhood friendly people to critical committees like P and Z.
CSAN endorsements before council will truly help. Getting the word of thse endorsements out to the community through public advertisements and door to door canvasing will do wonders.
