AIA Planning, March 9 review of proposed fire house

Original post made by Hal, CDSI Research Fellowship, Alamo, on Mar 4, 2011

I reviewed and was very pleased to see that AIA planning will be discussing the mitigation report, and its regulatory issues, for the proposed fire house site on March 9. Since the AIA is engaging in its independent voice for neighborhood, business district and community groups, those attendees of the AIA planning meeting will be able to gather in-depth considerations of issues still unresolved in the fire house plans.

AIA planning's review will be fresh in the minds of participants that intend to make presentations at CCC-MAC Alamo meeting on March 15. Such in-depth references for MAC presentation will not be part of CCC-MAC Alamo agenda, March 15, so the AIA’s provision of information is of singular importance to presentations at the MAC by neighborhood, business district and community group representatives.

CCC-MAC policy does not allow response, discussion, interaction and mitigation by MAC members with attendees. Presenters must unilaterally provide in-depth, well-informed commentary quickly in the 3 minutes they are allotted by CCC-MAC policy.

Dear Jessica,

Let us answer the question in this exchange by explaining that high-level executives of builders/developers, corporations, financial institutions, health organizations and professional groups are members of the AIA. Among the corporations and financial institution executives, as AIA members, there are many with specific business interests in Alamo and its business district. Further, those members are part of all AIA membership's election of the AIA Board so such a board reflects responsibility to AIA members and the neighborhood, business district and community groups such members represent.

To name any one AIA member as an Alamo Merchant beyond past and present board members who conduct business in our community would violate the appropriate confidentiality provided to members by the AIA Board. But I would think that we have all enjoyed the services of Diane Barley in her role at the Bank of America and now at Union Bank.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
