No, there was nothing on the table. And yes, there were people complaining about losing the suburban nature of their block in Greenville, but I did not get the impression they were a major force. It seemed like most thoughtful people were concerned about the infrastructure like sewers, transit, walk & bikeability and greenspace keeping up with development.

Well, that was an exercise in "we're listening" theater. I'm surprised they didn't suggest the JC master plan could bring peace in the Mideast, they seemed to believe it could solve all sorts of other problems like social justice and employment. No discussion at all of the "ecosystem" of the city, how and why changes in density and usage make a plan obsolete.

Am surprised I haven't seen more talk about this on JC List. But maybe I am not looking in the right place.

Am not sure I can make it to City Hall tonight. If anyone goes, can they please post a report?
