The commission will not allow comments at this meeting and want to vote quickly on this issue. They will either hear it first on the agenda or they will make us sit there until they hear to other contentious issues. They apparently want to limit public input. The P&Z commission said they would consider an ordinance submitted by the citizens. The attached Santa Fe Ordinance can be used as the Sandoval model.
