There’s going to be a big turnover in the Planning Commission due to expired terms as well as the conservative turn of the Board of Supervisors last fall.  And some of the people who have slammed the county for the extraordinary length of the process are ironically calling upon the county to slow it down even more until they have their commissioners of preference in place.

With the loss of these commissioners, a couple of whom have been on for over a decade, and the losses of Bonnie Neely and Jill Duffy, a great deal of institutional knowledge will be absent from the process.
