I was unable to find the report from the rental ordinance task force that was completed a week or more ago. Anyone have a link to that for us here? If it’s not available on the City website, why not?
Northfield News reporter Ariel Emery wrote an article for the Wed edition of the paper. It’s titled Rentals revisited: Draft may be ready March 19; 32-page rental study sums up what’s been said.
Some councilors suggested that one or more sessions for public feedback be held before the draft is presented in late March. Others disagreed, saying that there would be nothing concrete to give feedback on until an ordinance is presented. City Councilor Jim Pokorney countered that if the public reacted strongly against what’s presented in late March, he wouldn’t want to have to go all the way back to the beginning of the drafting process.
I’m clueless about the whole process that the City has used to-date since this issue came to fore in March, 2006.
I’m now interested in trying to understand the process it plans to use in order to try to resolve this problem.
So if anyone wants to talk process, this is the place.
