The mayor needs to hear more than the developers’ voices

Peter Crownfield is officially retired but spends most of his time working with students in his role as internship coordinator for the Alliance for Sustainable Communities–Lehigh Valley.


Great series [Peter means the Kim Carrell-Smith 4-part series on thoughtful planning; see part 1 here], although asking the City administration & council and agencies like BPA to pay attention to common sense and evidence of greater economic vitality seems to be a lost cause when all they hear is the developers’ voices.

I remember Mayor Donchez once assuring people that he met weekly with key developers. A weekly meeting with you & Karen Beck Pooley & Breena Holland would have been a better use of his time and of greater benefit to the city.


Yiii, does the Mayor meet weekly with key developers?
