Another Misleading Headline
Jamie Larson's account of the Valley Alliance's review of the LWRP and GEIS appears in today's Register-Star with the headline: "Valley Alliance: City should go back to the drawing board." Now that seems to be a rather reckless and extreme recommendation to make about a document the City has been working on for close to twenty years, and in fact it is not what the Valley Alliance recommended. Going back to the drawing board suggests starting over. What was actually said by Sam Pratt was, "If it's going to take another three to six months to get it right, let's do it." The recommendation for how the desired outcome can be accomplished was made by Peter Jung: "The quickest way to fix the document is to re-create the Citizens' Advisory Steering Committee."
