Call to order at 7:05pm. Cabot Nelson gave his secretary report. Motion to approve the minutes of the November meeting passed with an amendment noting that Sally Barraclough was present.

Christopher Thomas as chair made announcements. Amy Barry acted as chair so that Christopher could speak to the following motion which passed on a voice vote:


SHCC requests that the Planning Comm not vote on the proposed Community Based Orgs ordinance until we have had time to review proposed policies regarding LU&Z reviews.

We believe a fair policy in this regard is one that:

+affords community councils early notice of planned development projects

+encourages developers to meet with, answer questions posed by, and hear recommendations from the community councils and our members, and

+enables community councils to provide thoughtful feedback to the city regarding proposed projects.


Motion to disband the Sustainability Committee passed on a voice vote.
