The vote last night was 8-0 against amending the Smart Growth Plan after a long discussion and an even longer agenda.
The metaphors flowed like water and peace was restored to the land.
The one message that seemed to come through was that this project would be tackled at some time in the future but that, despite the merits of the project, the commitment to the plan would be honored.
My thanks to all who spoke and to all the alders.
