Below, you'll find information about some of the decisions made by City Council. This is also where you can find out about projects that seem to go silent for a while, and about implementation and evaluation of adopted policies and plans.
If you have a question about a City project, that begins, "What happened about...?," send us a comment, and we'll try to find out and post the answer for you and others who may be wondering.
I add more content links here on an ongoing basis. Please check back often.
