As the Credits Roll
Like watching the credits for LOTR: Return of the King, the March 15 council meeting made one aware of the thousands of people working off screen as city employees, outside experts, volunteers, neighborhood groups, consultants, boards, committees and interagency coordinators. Reports on the 2025 Metropolitan Transportation Plan and the Middle Rio Grande Regional Water Plan represented two of the largest efforts.
Councilor Debbie O'Malley, who has recused herself from votes concerning Housing and Urban Development funds because of her position with the Sawmill Community Land Trust, announced she was resigning from the Land Trust so her district would not be at a disadvantage in seeking other HUD funding. Councilors Sally Mayer and Craig Loy were absent.
