Planning Commissioner Tasha Boerner Horvath initiated an agenda item on public outreach for the housing element because she said “the window is closing” before the matter heads to a public vote in November 2016.Maybe they should put those story poles up on all the properties they want to upzone, showing how high and dense they want to build. That would get people's attention.
The housing element calls for rezoning certain sites for higher density to accommodate 1,300 units. Horvath said it’s a big deal and not enough have weighed in.
“When I talk to people in my circle of friends and with my neighbors, they don’t know what it is,” Horvath said.
