Timeline of events
Tuesday 12th 7pm - 100+ people turn up to Council to present our case in preparation for next weeks vote
Wednesday 13th - After being with the Dept of Planning for approx 230 days with no action, a decision is made to allow the rezoning of the site the very next day after our forum, taking away the democratically elected councillors right to vote and represent the community.
Wednesday 13th 6:46pm - Council Director Andrew Watson notifies the Mayor and other Councillors of the decision
Wednesday 13th 7:19pm - Mayor Jennifer Anderson replies all to the email with one "word" LOL !!
Thursday 14th - In emails back to the community, Mayor Anderson calls it a farce that the Planning Dept have approved the rezoning while a motion is pending. It was funny enough to write "LOL" on Wednesday night though.
Friday 15th PM - Planning Minister Rob Stokes says his departments decision was inappropriate and that it is still for Council to decide whether the Harris planning proposal should proceed or not.
What now - The Councillors will vote on the motion on Tuesday night, giving back our democratic right.
MUST DO NOW - Email all the Councillors but especially Wahroonga Ward Councillor Donna Greenfield, Councillor Cheryl Szatow and Mayor Jennifer Anderson. Let them know what you think of the rezoning but also the time line of events.
TUESDAY NIGHT 7PM - Come to Council chambers on Tuesday November 19th to watch our Councillors vote and hold them accountable.
