We were notified hours before Clairemont residents could weigh-in on Land Use Decisions!
The Planning Dept has cancelled tonight’s Land Use Workshop where the topics were appropriate Height Limits and density within the Clairemont Plan Area, especially around future transit hubs.
The City not only cancelled the workshop but want further engagement with residents via a computer! BTW, many of our older residents are not computer literate.
Here’s the official excuse:
“Over the past few months, the City’s Planning Department has developed a new community engagement tool to accept public input on the Clairemont Community Plan Update. This engagement tool will be used for future planning efforts. We are excited to launch this new innovative tool that will allow us to collect public input ahead of community meetings to better inform the conversation. We invite you to use this online tool in lieu of the Jan. 30 workshop. Look for this to be available next week at www.clairemontplan.org.”
“to collect Public input ahead of community meetings…” smells a lot like planners don’t want any more face-to-face confrontations by a community that has already weighed-in on Land Use, made clear to the planners that we don’t want our 30ft Height Limit busted and do want controls on density.
