Continued Misconduct

City planning director and commissioners provide glimpse of their density standard during consideration of 1003 Douglas proposal.

Commissioners concluded 1003 Douglas with a 'timeout', delaying its authorization for at least two additional meetings.

Request:
1003 Douglas -

Conforming Use, Density
6 persons/6 vehicles
11 persons/11 vehicles

The planning commission questioned the ZBA's rational for authorizing ordinance+2 density (9 to 11). Commissioners had previously approved 802 S. Main, a similar development, at ordinance+4 density (8 to 12).

The city has found it necessary to subcontract planning functions while planners, city staffers and the Zoning Board of Appeals are engaged conjuring procedures and standards in furtherance of their 'Other Plan'.
