May 2024 Meeting Notes

On Thursday, May 16, 2024, our special Guests were Mayor Cassie Franklin and Planner Director Yorik Stevens-Wadja. Topics included a state of the city review, an explanation of the levy lid lift, the comprehensive plan, and a Waits Motel update. The mayor answered lots of questions, and Yorik provided information about the timeline and importance of the comprehensive plan. It, too, could affect the Waits. It would be in the neighborhood’s best interest to have a replacement in unit structure built as soon as possible under the current code.

This was the night of the terrible traffic jam due to the state patrol involved shooting on I-5. We are grateful to our neighbors who reached out to travelers or offered snacks. It’s a reminder for us all to have extras in our cars and be ready for whatever.
