Law proposed to improve development review process

Tomorrow night (Monday) the City Council is hearing public testimony, and apparently will vote on, Ordinance O-35-17. This ordinance would overhaul the development review process by inserting more transparency (beefing up the notification requirements), offering additional opportunity for public input, and would send major site design plan applications to the Planning Commission for a public hearing. This is good! And your support is needed! Last time it was mostly developers out to testify against it, with only a few there in support.

Annapolis hearing on Paris Agreement (climate change)

The City Council will be hearing public testimony on a resolution in support of the Paris Agreement (dealing with climate change), tomorrow night at 7pm. You can view the agenda here. And you can view the Resolution (R-22-17) at this link. It currently has 5-sponsors, so will likely pass, but I do feel it needs some additional improvements. I hope you will consider coming to testify in support. Climate change is a very real and imminent threat to the City.
