  • Nick, I would recommend using another term for government sponsored programs other than “entitlements”. The term "entitlements"is being used by some in a perjoritive sense to demean those recieving benefits and is not accurate.

  • Nick, I did take a look at the citie’s 2020 plan which you reference in your commentary. Discussing the single family conversion ordinance in the context of the citie’s long range plan would provide a wider context than your anecdotal observations. It has been a while since I saw a copy of the comprehensive plan but I believe even this document provides for separation between single family housing and multi resident units. There will always be unintended consequences but what needs to be evaluated are those which are intended. Thanks for your thoughtful comments on topics before the council.
