Video-WHEN Will the City Have a Public Meeting for Citizens to Comment on the Surles Oakdale RV Park Plan?

12 May 2010 at 4:44:02 PM

I am listening right now to the city meeting from May 10, 2010 and setting a date was not on the agenda. At the city meeting before this, the council people talked about setting a date in which the public could weigh in on the plan. That has not happened yet. We believe that there SHOULD be, particularly since the Design Committee appointed by 4-b never presented its findings and is apparently, since not dissolved, in force. We also believe that the city should hear from county and city residents that they WANT A MEETING. Again, it has NOT happened.

The CPAC meetings have NOTHING to do with Oakdale. Video at that link where Jeannie Deer asked the CPAC people whether they were looking at Oakdale. Answer: No.

At the 4-b meeting last week, it was made clear that this was NOT a public meeting to discuss the plan but that the city is in charge of doing a public meeting. Video at that link. Incidentally, Connally Miller made it very clear at this meeting that it is the CITY who needs to discuss the plans, not the 4-b.

The city said at their meeting on April 26, 2010 that they were going to have a public input meeting for the public to weigh in on Bud Surles Plan. Okay. So Set the Date.  VIDEO

That brings me to the City meeting for May 10, 2010. This is Billy Huckaby talking about Oakdale plans. Rough Transcript. To hear the full audio of the meeting click here.

Villa. Hey, I missed the May 4th meeting on the plan. Have we had any comments? Huckaby-Man, I've been in so many meetings .. my head just spins. You talking about the 4-b meeting? Villa -I guess so. Busch-it was a public forum  (Somebody-no, that was on a conference ? ) Huckaby-no, there was just a lot of talk, a lot of concerns about the historical aspects of it and there's this difference of opinion about what Oakdale park should be exactly,

With the very few people that even attended the 4-b meeting. It was NOT a public input meeting and it was Darrell Best who mostly wanted to talk about it.

but , uh, one thing that the Historical Commission really stressed is anything we do to that park to kind of make it more of a public park kind of takes it away from what it is historically, you know, cabins, campgrounds, and the events and all that kind of thing.  But I'm sure that we'll debate that much into the future.

Anyway. NO public meeting has been scheduled. Bob Stricklin said he thought there should be. So do I.
