After some thought, members of a working group of the Board of Adjustment were content to let their comments on the first draft of CodeNEXT remain for the second draft. However, at their most recent meeting, during the discussion about the Land Development Code rewrite, the ghost of the Zucker report appeared. Responding to a thought that the report’s observations on the Board of Adjustment might be a useful lens to view CodeNEXT through, Board Member Bryan King agreed, noting that newly hired City Manager Spencer Cronk had only recently heard of the report. “(He) was very interested in it,” said King, who noted the board might want to give Cronk feedback on the report. “As he comes in and splashes in the pool, we (can) hand him a towel,” he said. Board members may take action on the upcoming code draft and map, once they are released.
