****Background Email Sent to Lorie Zapf requesting Meeting on January 19th****
Before reading the below Meeting Notes, I encourage everyone to help find a way to enlist Councilwoman Lorie Zapf’s help with the 30Ft Height Limit. I have been asked by many of you “who should we vote for?” My answer today is the same from the beginning; RTB Committee Members, and, I, believe we haven’t done our job if we need to instruct community members on who to vote for. We will, however, work to get information and statements out to the public regarding specific issues that city officials and elected Councilmembers have stated on the record.
It is imperative that we not throw in the towel and shrug off our responsibilities as individual citizens and merely blame politicians for their lack of help to their constituents. A “Town Hall” meeting is a more appropriate setting for Councilwoman Zapf to meet her community face-to-face instead of merely encouraging folks to attend the Community Planning Group meetings (which RTB has encouraged everyone to do from the beginning of the release of the Morena Blvd Station Area Planning Study).
