Changing the Process for Rezoning and Planning Approvals

1

Surprisingly unprepared speakers. They did not seems to be in synch or have previously discussed what they will say. Skipped slides, moved ahead to some slides that were in the wrong place etc. Appeared to be inexperienced presenting and unprofessional. In the discussion of their topic they got hung up on petty details that are irrelevant and had nothing to do with the substance of their topic. They seemed unreflected and brainwashed by the developer community. Very disappointing.
