What, Exactly, Are You Building?
By Laura Sanchez
Whether big-box stores, regulations, ponds or neighborhoods, the motto of the Aug. 20 Council meeting might have been the carpenters' warning, "Measure twice, cut once." Certainly the Raging Grannies, who showed up calling for an end to the disastrous occupation of Iraq, would have advocated more careful upfront planning.
Council President Debbie O'Malley's bill calling for higher standards in the design and traffic management of big-box stores passed 7-2, Councilors Sally Mayer and Don Harris opposed. Harris withdrew a bill authorizing a study of neighborhood and property owners' associations, saying stakeholders were making progress with less formal discussions.
