[NLC] Envision Eugene Update: Triple Bottom Line review
pconte at picante-soft.com
Mon Jan 31 12:17:47 PST 2011
This is citizens' one-shot at a three-hour session just ten days
after the draft recommendations are available and less than two weeks
before Council will be asked to make decisions on "all the major deal
points" for a new UGB and associated development policies.
You can decide for yourself whether this is a reasonable approach to
adequate public consideration of how the broad spectrum of "TBL"
criteria apply to all the major deal points of EE.
For the JWN, Whiteaker, Far West (and potentially other NAs) the
compressed EE process is occurring at exactly the same time as the
West Eugene EmX Extension decision process (also extremely
compressed, with a moving target and unresolved analysis issues).
And then there's the proposed tax for 4J.
I note that neither the NLC, nor the JWN Executive Board will meet
before this event, so there's no chance to sit down with the draft
recommendations and discuss how to approach the "TBL review" as an
organization or to select representatives. JWN also just mailed its
newsletter with coverage and a calendar for EE, and of course this
meeting hadn't been announced.
