I was very pleased last night. Although the subject matter was very difficult to deal with, the loss of 75 trees along a thoroughfare , I felt I was watching how government “should work”.
There was an open dialogue between the citizens and the city officials. The questions were asked and answered civilly and without angst. Concerns were addressed and noted, explanations as to why and why not were fully explored.
Although there weren’t a lot of participants, for once we the citizens could not say we weren’t given any input. The information about the project was in the newspapers, blogs and electronic media ( using email lists) BUT apart from that every resident received a hand delivered notification as to the project and the meeting .
The Chronicle Telegram covered the meeting and their article is here:
Copies of the plan and tree types were handed out to those attending :
