Thrower also pledges no haircuts
Tuesday, September 24, 2019 by Jo Clifton
Last week, the Austin Monitor noted that Planning Commissioner Greg Anderson had pledged not to cut his hair until Council approves a new Land Development Code. On Monday, we learned that Ron Thrower of Thrower Design has likewise pledged not to cut his hair until there is a new code. Thrower said via email: “To further the situation – I’ve grown my hair longer these days and when people ask when am I going to cut it, I respond with, ‘When we get a new code, but the code has to work, it has to cost less to make each project be built, and it has to be simpler.’ I’m guessing I’m not going to be cutting my hair based on Draft 3.” Please let the Monitor know if you decide to join the protest!
