It is instructive to read the main headings (pgs. 41-46) regarding neighborhoods from the Mayor’s “100 Day Plan” report which I have subtitled "Planning about Talking/Talking about Planning". (Click here to read the report in its entirety.)
The Mayor missed a golden opportunity at the 25 February council meeting by not standing tall and saying that, "While you, the council, review (yet one more time) this, that and everything, I will fulfill my campaign promise." Here it is again, for those who may have forgotten, the Mayor's pledge: “To be clear, I believe in enforcing the codes we have, and am willing to go to court as needed.” What will it take for action? Some tragedy, such as a fire in an overcrowded, illegal rooming house?
