Has anyone heard anything back?
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

If something is going down, I wouldn't expect to hear it before the meeting.  I'm headed downtown now.

Where to now with the mobility fee?  I heard that it doesn't actually expire until the 19th?  Is that right?

After October 19th the city will no longer accept applications for a fee waiver.

The next City Council meeting is October 23rd, and that would be the next chance to file a bill for another moratorium.  The chances of this going through as an emergency are very slim, so it would go through the committees.  Most likely Rules (chaired by Clay Yarborough), Finance (chaired by John Crescimbeni), LUZ (chaired by Lori Boyer) and Transportation, Energy & Utilities (chaired by Greg Anderson).

These committee meetings will each provide an opportunity for public comment, in addition to the individual meetings, letters and emails that can occur during that time period.

^Thanks.

This entire process has been a group effort.  The only CPAC I spoke to was Urban Core.  SE CPAC has yet to receive a presentation and I am hoping one of us will get a chance to talk to them about it this month.  Same goes for NW CPAC and NE CPAC.

Even if the 2nd moratorium bill isn't filed, there needs to be more public education about the Mobility Plan.

Based on what Doug said, it sounds like the opposition still has until tomorrow to file for an extension of the moratorium.

Want to bet?  It will be filed at 4:59 on Friday, and the City Council will take it up on Tuesday, 2 business days later.

Get your torches and pitchforks ready!  If this happens it will be introduced by one of the term limited councilmen.
