The second meeting is scheduled for today at 6:00 and is being presented to the Economic Development Commission. Both agenda items are to receive and file. These two bodies are not being asked for their input or recommendations. We believe the two meetings are being held to relieve pressure from the city council.
Very interesting that the study which 6 of the council members voted for, stating they valued having more information to help them make their best decision, did not attend the first meeting. We shall see how that holds for tonights meeting being held at City Hall in the council chambers.
We have requested that the city council hold a study session on November 15th rather than taking the vote without a full vetting in public - regardless of their decision it will important that the public demonstrate their opinions at that time. Mark your calendars! Jet Blue and other LGB tenants who will benefit from this action will be there en masse, so plan accordingly.
