According to the Commission Agenda for tomorrow, April 28, 2014, we should have a packed room again. Kristen, you luck out again. John Bendel, it is going to be quite a meeting, I predict.
The Brookline people are not happy and will be showing up for the Castlegate vote. Vee Lynn, Mayfair, Cedar, and Parkridge people, listen to what the Brookline people went through concerning Castlegate. It is the same scenario. No one was notified. The municipality put a notice on the property and one would have to trespass to read it. Cute, huh? The neighbors were upset because they missed the public hearing. Neighbors of Middle and Wildcat Fields, you never even got the right to a public hearing. The commissioners tabled the Castlegate vote. There was a meeting with the locals, and the vote is back on the agenda for tomorrow night. Mt. Lebanon residents get treated a little differently. According to Brumfield, LeboALERTS are sent out announcing that the agendas are available for viewing on the municipal website. For recreation improvements, there are never LeboALERTS sent out. They only like to announce the movie that will be playing at the swimming pool.
We still have the unhappy Newcomers, Kristen. Aren't you sad that you can't threaten to shut down the meeting again? I would hope that John does a better job presiding over the meeting than you did.
Kristen, you are also going to miss all your friends who rallied for LEED Certification over the high school project. What's that? They aren't coming to defend the beautiful green fields at Wildcat and Middle? Why aren't they protesting the toxic turf? Because you said that the ESB is not against artificial turf?
Conveniently, Kristen, you will be missing some pretty heavy discussion topics during your Discussion Session tomorrow. The Discussion Session Agenda for April 28, 2014 include topics such as
- Making the Home Rule Charter gender neutral - a very important issue to you
- Turf fundraising which you so kindly donated to
- Turf infill options - toxic synthetic or toxic organic
- Other turf design and bidding issues
- Closing public, municipal athletic fields during inclement weather
- Board and authority recording, another issue near and dear to your heart
Yes, Kristen, you luck out again. I hope you are giving some thought to the idea of resigning. We sure are.
