How come the Finance/Audit Committee didn' t review the Financial Impacts of the Facebook project, but the Planning Commission does?
That's like having the Library Commission review tree removals instead of Environmental Quality.

The Financial Audit Committee members can review the FIR on their own prerogative and then comment to City Council or the Planning Commission. Or they can decide to comment to the papers instead.

What a waste of volunteer resources. That Committee could provide some great insights if used properly. If assigned to review and provide recommendations, they could be very helpful to both the Planning Commission and Council. Can they really just meet and comment? I don't think so. Staff wouldn't or couldn't help them.
This committee could provide input to the downtown plan but they won't be asked. Staff would rather hold tight and council would rather pay consultants.
