    This upcoming meeting is supposed to be for completion of the work of meeting #2, regarding the structure of the steering committee, not what the steering committee will do. What the group would do was surveyed and discussed in meeting #3. I believe once they announced the 3rd meeting and its purpose, they didn’t feel they shouldn’t depart from the schedule they had set. Our facilitator made her first appearance at the third meeting, and she will there at the 4th one on Monday. We will see you then!

    I’d like to see next Monday’s meeting devoted to what the Steering Committee will actually do. The Steering committee could coordinate activities, set agendas and outline the work plan. I think citizens are willing to roll up their sleeves and do the work of gathering data on transportation, environmental impacts and identifying the desirable types of economic development. Study committees involving may people could be organized along the lines of the 2020 Comp Plan goals coordinated by the Steering Committee.
