Complaint Driven City?
Original post made by aw, Old Palo Alto, on Jun 10, 2007
Do we live in a complaint-driven City? Couple examples: City approves demo of Briones house. Three people sue and work stops. School board votes no on MI. Ten people threaten charter and MI resumes. Just on a day-to-day basis leaf blowers, construction, redevelopment, panhandling, parking, etc are all enforced by complaint. It's almost as if we've abandoned policy-driven priorities, fairness and consistency. Any thoughts on whether strictly complaint-driven enforcement is a good thing?
