07/11/2012: "Planning Commission Moves Forward"


The SJC Planning Commission (Commission) met on Tuesday (07-10-12) to continue work on changes to the fish and wildlife section of the Critical Areas Ordinance (CAO), and held a short discussion on the controversy [related story below] of the SJC Council (Council) holding public hearings, conducting field trips, and discussing the Commissions’ draft recommendations to the Council before the Commission had completed the draft


While none of the members of the Commission came out in support of the Council action, one of the senior members of the Commission said the Councils’ action was “worrisome,” but the Commission needed to complete their recommendations and forward a final draft to the Council.

Several of the members said it was up to individual members to express their concern to the Council.

Deputy Prosecutor Jon Cain relayed to the Commission that he had reminded the Council they had a statutory requirement to receive the work of the Commission before they proceeded with adopting it.

The Council had justified their action by stating they would only look at, and discuss, those portions of the current Commission draft the Commission had completed; but Commissioner Mike Carlson had warned them that none of the changes and recommendations in the draft had been approved, and were subject to change.

After the Council went ahead on Monday and held discussions on selected portions of the draft, they learned that on Tuesday the Commission had in fact made additional changes to the draft.

The good news for the Council was the Commission had by the end of the day made their final changes, and now it would be up to the staff to publish the new, and approved, draft for public and Council review.
