Barbara J. Szalay replied to Paul Schumann's discussion CoodeNEXT V2: LCCO Board's Position
"No one from LC came tonight except me. Forget what I said re RR--RR, R1A, & R1B are all but identical entitlement-wise. (R1B adds Senior Living less than 12--who cares?) Re Para 1-2, tonight Staff said lot size is set in stone, so R1B is the only on…"

"In sum, CN is going to pass. Too much money spent; too much momentum, old Code is too awful. 2.27 mill more to Berkeley based Opticos just approved. (But if you truly want CN to fail, D1 Councilmember Houston is your best bet.) Do comment on the map…"

"Paras 6-14: 6: Maybe Marshall will just build houses. But yes, if it's re-zoned (much more valuable as commercial), you're smart to want a code ready. If none in Dr 2 will work, make up one w/ what you want, name it, & propose it. Comment on the Cod…"

"Intro & Paras 1-5: As someone who's deeply involved in CodeNEXT: intro: BD (Sandy, Barb C., Paul?) oppose Draft Two. Fine, but in dealing with COA Staff instead of telling them what's wrong tell them what you want & do so briefly. Para One: BD says…"

"This post is WONDERFUL and so well thought out, but perhaps a tad too long and dense for the average user. Could you pull out four very short bullet point goals? But I will read the whole thing & comment, next."

Barbara J. Szalay replied to Paul Schumann's discussion CodeNEXT in 3 Minutes
"Also, while I appreciate how fed up this speaker this, my reaction as one quite involved in this process, , is to say of course the powers behind CodeNEXT want density. But it's a bit late in the game to object to the entire purpose of CodeNEXT, bec…"

Barbara J. Szalay replied to Paul Schumann's discussion CodeNEXT in 3 Minutes
"Thank you for posting this. A few comments: the pro-density folks argue that if you vastly increase density, the effect is to increase (1) the need for mass transit so it finally gets built (and used); (2) ridership of existing mass transit, thereby…"

"Jim's presentation was very good. I had questions about the Firewise Presentation you mentioned after. Was that on October 7th? Did you go? Who was invited? Can you please post notes/handouts from that? Last night you said the folks on the greenbelt…"

"Thank you for inviting Jim Duncan to speak. I have heard him talk at   Land Development Code Revision Advisory Group  of Codenext, and he makes good, impassioned arguments. He really has the neighborhoods' backs. "

"Pool voted yes first but belatedly realized her mistake. Amendment to base motion from agreement between Mayor & Casar: SF 2s were removed (though there are some SF 2 that already have ADUs & these won't be affected) ; cap on size added: 1100 sq ft;…"

"Update: yet another wastewater line was breached; that's why all the COA trucks were here. Many homes are still waiting on adequate grass. We are waiting on a sufficient check of sprinkler repairs. Masonry company was hired to repair mailbox & did s…"

"We went up Saturday Nov. the 21st with Mac Holder. I had gone up previously on Sept. 19th, about a week after you. Regardless of what Mac said, a ton more trees have come down. I gasped. You're allowed to clear 15 feet to do a survey. I have very bi…"

"You stated at the LCCO mtg that you can guarantee that Quaker Ridge residents have nothing to worry about re flooding and pollution--that we should trust the engineers & COA ordinances/oversight. Would you be willing to put those assurances into wri…"
