Jan 26 2005 – South Peak Meeting Jan 29

Things continue to move slowly on the South Peak front, but they are
moving. It looks as though the development’s official Stormwater
Management Plan will be finalised within the next week. while the
formal public comment period may be over, there is still plenty we can
do to let the planning board know of our issues our questions.

I asked Ric at New World Home Cooking for the favor of some free space
for us to have a meeting on Saturday. I chose 1pm but if that is very
difficult for many folks, I guess we can change it.

I have also told Richard Rothe of the meeting and he said that he
would be happy to come and to answer questions. If we invite him, that
is. While he is obviously not going to debate the *fact* of the
development as a whole (i.e. “should it happen at all, any of it?”),
he will answer other issues. If folks think that this is a potentially
productive idea, I will invite him.

After he has left (if he comes), I propose that we talk amongst
ourselves and investigate the possiblity of a more formal association
with a view to talking with a lawyer and possibly hiring one.

I have made up a flyer and propose to distribute it through the
neighborhood on Thursday.

Comments appreciated.

Here is the text of the flyer I have uploaded to the “Files” section
of the yahoo group.
