PLEASE NOTE: for those attending the Commission Planning meeting August 29, 2018 at 6:00 pm at the Meeting Haus (588 S. 3rd St.):  During Wednesday’s meeting, the Society has hired Vorys Sater attorney Jill Tangeman to answer questions and take part in preparation of your talking points and letters. Jill’s bio is here: Jill has worked on both the developer side and the community-action side of zoning and variance disputes during her career, so she can really give us insight to the way the process works and the way developers use the Commission and BZA/Council processes so that our community is prepared to respond accordingly.
