Councilwoman Cartright said, “Thank you to the Citizens Advisory Committee, to the co-chairs, Jane Taylor and George Hoffman, and to every community member that attended the many meetings I hosted. This is the type of Community Based Planning that is a vital component to gather the information necessary to draft this Visioning. I am excited to sponsor the resolution this Thursday to present the Visioning to my colleagues. Once accepted, we will begin moving forward with a Land Use Plan to shape the future of the 25A Corridor as guided by the community.”
