Mike Bonin, Chief of Staff for Councilmember Bill Rosendahl, was at the commission meeting and says this is a good sign but there’s more work ahead for the commission.
“These are instructions the commission gave to it’s staff,” says Bonin. “They are giving dozens of instructions, some of which might conflict.”
Some of those instructions also include the possibility of Palms going to CD5 and/or CD10.
The commission staff will take these instructions and produce another draft map that is expected to be released by the weekend.
The commission will then meet next Wednesday, February 22nd, to reconsider and possibly make more amendments.
