… speaking of the Zucker Report
Monday, April 6, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
At last Thursday’s City Council meeting, Council members heard a highly prepared presentation on development review, inspections and the permitting process in the city. And then, with little fuss, voted 9-0 to approve a resolution directing the city manager to “outline plans addressing reform” of those processes. The resolution asks the manager to, among other things, return within 30 days with a plan to address backlogs; provide by June 30 a detailed response to the Zucker Report; and submit progress reports on the reforms at least every 60 days. Council Members Ellen Troxclair and Leslie Pool were absent for the vote.
