I stopped attending such meetings and gatherings because our leaders are going to do what they want to do. Remember the Urban Growth Boundary?
Why bother? I think I am like many others. This average citizen feels powerless in this developer driven county.
I agree Conservative Reaction and TimeforJustice. They are all going to do what they want to do regardless of attendance. I think they just hold these "public sessions" to say they did. Our city is a hodgepodge of design elements. The shopping area traffic flow through the Linens n'Things/Outback/Wal-Mart area is crazy. Poorly planned. I SO wish there would be uniform signage requirements and not so much variance between what is installed. The low signage at The Oaks and across at Chop House and Bonefish is nice. The tall signs at The Outback and Panera are very different.
It's all screwy.
