District Council Vote at City Planning & NO East District Council Debate Rescheduled for 10/11

CPC District Council Vote
At the City Planning Commission (CPC) meeting yesterday, CPC voted 7 to 0 to recommend modified language for the Master Plan on District Council. District Councils are organizations that are coalitions of neighborhood associations, similar to Gentilly Civic Improvement Association (GCIA). The original language submitted by the Neighborhood Engagement Office would have removed District Councils from the Master Plan. The modified language that was approved by the CPC would keep District Councils in the Master Plan in a more limited role. CPC recommendation now goes to the City Council for final adoption. City Council has 30 days to act after receiving the recommendations, so they will like vote at either their October 18 or November 1 meeting. Video from yesterday’s CPC meeting can be found at this link.
