Buranis property was not included in his original run on sentence. I
added a period and Buranis property to clear up confusion. I also have
the original with the omission.

Subject: Re: Re-zoning of the Buranis Property
At one of the steering committee meetings there was opportunity for the public
to comment on issues not on the agenda. Buranis property* was
not included on the official agenda. I pointed this out to the chair and
it was placed on the agenda.
All of the proposed General Plan redesignations were discussed by the Steering
Committee. I pointed out that some of the density increases would not be
appreciated by adjacent home owners and might result in a referendum. I
also suggested that nearby property owners should be informed as they might
want to offer comment, but, the staff and committee said that there would be
opportunities to comment at rezoning hearings. But as you know that is
I was deeply disappointed in how little public input was presented during the
hearings. There was little publicity and the chair seemed to regard
public input as a difficulty to overcome.
The issue will come before the City Council next Monday. You might want
to go the City's website to see the agenda. If you have any further
questions please call or email me.
