Regional Plan Public Hearing Draft Still Includes A PMO

By Elisha Dorfsmith

If there is one thing I CANNOT tolerate it is being lied to. Especially when someone looks you in the eye and lies right to your face.

Those of you who attended the Flagstaff Liberty Alliance meeting several months ago where the Flagstaff Regional Plan was discussed may remember me asking Zoning Code Administrator Roger Eastman why the rough draft of the plan included a Property Maintenance Ordinance as a solution since the Flagstaff City Council had previously rejected it.

Eastman told me that including the PMO in the rough draft was an oversight and any mention of it would be removed from the public hearing draft.

Several days later I was at a Sustainability Commission meeting and I asked Eastman again to confirm that the public hearing draft would NOT include the language “Property Maintenance Ordinance”. He assured me that it would not.

Well, tonight I went through the public hearing draft and guess what, Page 191 says part of the revitalization toolbox includes a “Property Maintenance Ordinance (PMO).”

How can you trust a plan that is being pushed by people who will look you in the eye and lie?

Public hearing dates for the Flagstaff Regional Plan can be found HERE. I encourage my readers to speak up and voice their concerns.
