Comprehensive Plan and LCC Meetings

Just got this email from the Arbor District:

Kendig Keast, the city's consultants on the comprehensive plan, are meeting with the Arbor District neighbors tomorrow (Tuesday) at 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. at City Hall to get our sense of what needs to be done, particularly about HOUSING. However, all other issues are fair game. The Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee members were just briefed about the "mobility" (transportation) chapter, and we'll be chewing it over during the next month or so.

I had thought that the meeting was with a number of neighborhood groups, but found out this evening that they specifically wanted to meet with the Arbor District. I sent word out to the Arbor District Board last week. Please forgive the last minute nature of this invitation, and if you know other people who you think would want to come, please invite them.

After this if you feel real civic minded, you can stick around for the 6 p.m. meeting of the Liquor Control Commission and watch Lance Jack have another go at getting a liquor license for Fat Patties and Express Burrito becoming Sergio's Mexican Bar and Grill.

Then at 7 to round off your evening of local politics, there's supposed to be a meeting of the City Council at 7 but clicking on the link brings up info about the Liquor Control Commission instead of the CC agenda.


  1. Does Carbondale have any neighborhood groups other than the Arbor District?

  2. None as well organized that I know of. One tried to start in the northwest part of town several months ago but never made it past the first meeting.
