Hi Sandy, I'm concerned about the petition and would recommend residents
think hard about the roughly seven years of work and input we all as a
community put into the specific plan, the dozens of outreach events, the
hundreds of hours of deliberation. I would ask them to consider the full
context of what we put into the plan. I would ask them to consider the
broad desire in the community to re-activate the downtown area and remove
the blight along El Camino. I would also share with them that the Planning
Commission and Council have architectural review powers to push back on bad
designs and guide developers towards good outcomes for the City. We do
this all the time as part of our normal process. Thanks for reaching out.
