In the last few months we have provided excerpts from just one section, Transportation, of the Growth Management Study. This half a million-dollar study, paid for by taxpayers was received by the city almost a year ago after a very long wait. When it was finally released to the public in the fall of last year we were told staff review would take about six months. We are wondering if council will release their review of the study in the near future. With an 8% municipal tax hike already predicted for next year, many of us are more than curious to know what the city’s assessment of the study has been and how it will compare to our reading and interpretation.
