Dear Ms. CitaraManis, Mr. Grabowski, Ms. Dombrowski, Mr. Rosenbaum, and Mr. Alexander:
As you may be aware, the County Council recently passed County Resolution CR 132-2007 authorizing the creation of a citizens task force to study and report on the opportunities for public engagement in the county land use process. Howard Weinstein and I have been designated as Co-Chairs of the PELU task force. To date, the task force has met on three occasions. The purpose of these initial meetings has been to educate our members about the existing processes and opportunities for public engagement in the land use process. Mina Hilsenrath has spoken to our group and provided valuable incite into the process of updating the General Plan. Marsha McLaughlin also spoke to our group and explained the processes related to Comprehensive Zoning and Piecemeal Rezoning.
During our most recent task force meeting the members requested Co-Chair Weinstein and I to invite the members of the Planning Board to attend our
If January 29th is not convenient for you, please let us know and we can make arrangements to reschedule our agenda. Thank you very much. We hope you will be able to participate.
Howard Weinstein, Co-Chair
