“But that idea was dismissed ......”

Rick — in a report about government action, this use of passive voice is not appropriate. Who, specifically, dismissed the idea?

In addition, some investigation into the validity of the subsequent rationale would help provide your readers with some transparency in government.

Why is the need for an EIR a reason for immediate dismissal?

Is the sewage capacity in the glens irretrievably at capacity? What would ir cost to fix that?

Why is it a problem that home values in the Glens would rise? That’s usually what happens when people improve their homes, isn’t it? Is it not better for the town as a whole that these ex-summer homes be brought up to the same quality as the rest of the town?

If this is an “affordable housing” problem, why are the Glens homeowners singled out for solving what is city-wide issue?
