Can you remember back on June 7th when the City Council had an all-day planning session at Drake Field? The Aldermen decided that affordable housing was the Number One priority for Fayetteville City government, and they set a December 1st deadline for addressing the problem. Gary Dumas, director of operations, told them that City staff would be making a policy recommendation in three weeks for providing housing options for people who make 60-80% of the median income. Three weeks has stretched out now to 11 weeks. Where's Waldo?
Can you remember back in April 2006 when Mayor Coody vetoed key portions of Ordinance No. 4855, the Hillside/Hilltop Ordinance to extended tree preservation and protection during construction to hillsides and hilltops. Mayor Coody said he had a better plan. Finally, almost a year later on March 8, 2007, Mayor Coody issued a press release saying he was calling for a Tree Preservation and Protection Ordinance. That was five and a half months ago (168 days). Where's Waldo?
Where's Waldo Dumas? Where's Waldo Coody? Probably hanging out somewhere with Godot.
