Multi-use Task Force Shows Positive Signs

Call me a policy wonk, but I love a good task force. And all indications are that the Mayor's Mixed Use Task Force is a very good one indeed. I like the transparency of its process. I like that they are talking specifics. I like that they are breaking down issues into logical, manageable subtopics. Most of all, I like that they have a great group of people involved led by the brilliant Phil Herr, who is masterful at seeing the big picture and keeping people focused on broader policy objectives.

I'm also pleased that not only did Mayor Warren show up to make a speech at last night's meeting, he stayed for the whole discussion. This is very encouraging as implementation of the task force's recommendations will require the strong backing of the mayor's office and this is a good sign of his commitment to the group.

There are some very challenging policy issues associated with developing large parcels in a way that does not harm the residential character of our neighborhoods or overburden our services, so it is great to have this talented group of people working on the issue.
