Note from CB9 Land Use Chairman – Michael Liburd

See the attached article on the City Planning Commission’s approval of the ZQA/MIH proposals. It’s the City Council’s turn next. Their vote makes it law. From this article, sounds like City Planning is putting the burden on the City Council to make the final decision on modifications to the plan, whether they pass it or not.


Community Board 9 voted “no” on both proposals. The City Council’s public hearings start next week on Tuesday, February 9th and Wednesday, February 10th at 9:30 am – Council Chambers – City Hall . It will be one of the few remaining chances for the public to formally voice their point of view directly to the decision makers. I hope you make the time to attend.
