Please include Belle Haven representation on city commissions

Dear Councilmembers,

You'll be appointing some new commissioners at tonight's meeting. I'd like
to suggest that, when you look at an applicant's qualifications, you look
at their geographic location compared to the rest of the commission and
give them particular consideration if they come from a part of the city
that has been underrepresented.

In particular, as a member of the Complete Streets Commission, I know we
suffer from limited visibility into the issues that face Belle Haven since
none of the current commissioners live there. There are many major
developments coming up in the neighborhood and having someone who has
intimate knowledge of the situation on the ground would be very helpful
when we are called upon to review projects and provide guidance to city

I'd also like to say that I'm thrilled that we have several outstanding
applicants for the Complete Streets Commission opening, an indication of
how interested residents are in improving our city for all modes of
transportation. I really hope that we will have similar interest in our
next commission opening, which will be coming up in just a few months.
