She did this for many reasons, primarily <br />because she believes in turnover on Boards and Commissions and encouraged the young <br />members of our community to apply for these Boards and Commissions positions. She stated <br />that she had learned a lot from her colleagues and thanked everyone for their support. While <br />some contention existed she felt that she had added a level of efficiency to these meetings that <br />had not existed previously and that a better balance between the rights of government and the <br />rights of property owners had been reached. A lot of good work came out of the Economic <br />Development Steering Committee and she thanked Commissioners Faliskie and Lanham who <br />served on that Committee with her. She also wished to thank staff for their support and kindness <br />and wished everyone well moving forward. <br />PETITIONERS <br />None <br />
