General Plan Update/Zoning Ordinance Amendment FEIR Comments

Please accept the attached comments on the FEIR for tonight's meeting.

I want to add that holding a meeting about topics so complex and important
to our city's future on the same evening as a Presidential debate minimizes
the opportunity for community involvement. Despite the many meetings, this
is one of few to focus on the IMPACTS of the proposed changes.

Further, it is highly inappropriate to ask the Planning Commission (and the
public) to digest thousands of pages in such a short amount of time. The
staff report with 13 attachments was published Friday afternoon, the FIA on
Saturday but not in track changes mode so it is impossible to see what was
changed. Worse, the Commission is being asked to review the FEIR without
benefit of reading comments about it, since comments are due at 5:30 the
same day as this meeting. The City can do better. I hope the Planning
Commission will utilize at least the scheduled 10/24 meeting to allow for
more full consideration of all inputs.
