I'm pretty sure Gail Carnes 34-year tenure is some sort of prank. Most dictators don't last that long.

Even the CIA can end a reign long before 34 years.  Ponder, would you mind re-posting or editing and adding in what each of these individuals to for a living?

Josh Walker and an investment group own the building on Cherry St that houses The Pint, among other things, and has been helpful in bettering the streetscape and angled parking along that corridor.

Because the meetings are held on Wednesdays at 1:30 PM, it basically eliminates anyone with a full-time job from being on the Planning Commission.  (Unless they are self-employed or have flex hours.)  Many of the commissioners are retired, and the others appear to be self-employed or work in the development industry.

I think that holding Planning Commission meetings in the evening would make it easier for more people to participate, both as commissioners and as citizens.

Some argue that evenings are hard b/c people are busy with their kids' activities or they would need to get a babysitter.  I agree.  But I also think that more people are available after work hours, because it's easier to schedule a sitter 3 nights a month than it is to take a half day of vacation 3 times a month.  Also, not everyone has kids. 

It would be exciting to see a bunch of younger people serving on the planning commission.  Especially since they will have to live with the decisions that are made by this commission for the next 30 years.
