Zoning Commission Public Hearing Jan 15, 2015, Case 14-11

From an email:

“More than 160 people signed up to make comments. (At least 6.5 pages on the witness list at 25 per page). Could not stay until the end so I don’t know if everyone spoke. They were processing about 16 speakers an hour when I left.

Looks like the speakers were about evenly split between pro-downzoning and anti-downzoning.

The hearing was about R-4 zone changes. If these changes go through and if the Lanier Heights downzoners succeed in changing Lanier Heights zoning from R-5-B to R-4 then Lanier Heights will be affected by these R-4 changes.

Attached is my statement. I read my statement shortly after the Lanier Heights downzoning leader, Denis Suski, read his statement supporting the reduction in R-4 zoning.

The hearing was video tapped and should be available for online viewing soon.

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
