I am doing my first presentation to Planning Commission tonight on my inherited 150 acre mixed residential density neighborhood master plan. From what i have been told by my client (the city) they are an "inexperienced" planning commission since the majority of them have been appointed this year, and this project has taken now over 3 years (it was suppose to be an 18 mo job at the height of the boom). Any insight you guys can give me for this presentation and how to speak or answer questions. I will be giving a power point overview discussing mainly focusing on the design guidelines and how they differ versus the city's zoning ordinance (this master plan will override the city's zoning ordinance for this new neighborhood). My main "theme" is the pedestrian orientation of the new neighborhood (dedicated ped/bike trails along the project boundaries and centralized paseo, park feature of 7 acres, adjacent new high school, large pocket parks, and use of roundabouts). Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
