All you Judy Arnold supporters are acting like our whiney congress who can't play in fairness. Let Read Morethe best women win!

I agree we don't need Arnold Whiney's--complaining--It is the Decade for Women---Let the best Woman Read Morewin!---Did we notice that if you look close you can see on Arnolds sign---"old" and "Done"---Let's make sure the latter is accomplished!

Is the above illustration a depiction of the rail stop at Firemens Fund or at Hamilton? If theRead Moreill ustration is supposed to be an accurate depiction of the Firemens Fund rail stop, the design has completely changed from the one presented by SMART to the city council a few months ago. It has doubled in size! Please clarify, DMC.

All that money and it won't even keep the riders dry from rain. But then it's not really for themRead Morean yway. It's a trophy for the local politicians and developers to congratulate themselves on another transfer of wealth from the taxpayers.

Rick--it is difficult to clarify things for people that don't read---can you spell BUS.---Can youRead Morere ad the headline?---Thanks for your interest though--it will be YOUR tax dollars---that fund this BUS station that the Mayor and a few council members railroaded through without ANY public input!

BJL's observation deserves further contemplation. Are only parents with children in NUSD receivingRead Moret he calls and mailers, as suggested? Could the district be providing parents' private contact information? http://www.mikemcmahon.info/parceltax.htm#district Would the robo call received from the principal of Sinaloa violate these rules?

Marin Mom, I stand corrected. Schools were give $100 per student for Common Core implementation. Read More$ 800,000 of the $1.6 million. Not that NUSD spent current parcel tax money on computers, but maybe they won't parcel tax money for that purpose as stated on the campaign materials. where should the money go?

It still looks like a conflict of interests for Reid and his family to benefit in any way from aRead Morelan d deal that is controlled by the government when Reid has so many fishes in the same pond. Reid's former Aide Neil Kornze, is now a BLM director. ===========================================This whole affair is beginning to look like like a plot from House of Cards...

Whenever a politician says he will make decisions on a case by case basis he is simply not taking a Read Morestand at all, which means he is not doing his job. The job is to make a ruling that will be a standard so people will know what to expect and how to act. Using the flexibility to look at exceptions should not be taken as anything other than cowardly fence sitting when leadership is needed. Eric still won't tell anyone if he is for or against the new bus station, even though he voted for it after hiding the process for 2 years from the people of Novato.
novato 3per April 18, 2014 at 10:44 AM
Esactly Bubba, the phrase that describes this liberal phenomena of paralysis in decisionmaking isRead More&q uot;having such an open mind that their brains fall out", while I'm not exactly accusing Eric of having no brains, I think he'd serve us better by being more decisive and less afraid to act before checking with the polls and the council gal pals.

"Essentially, the UGB prohibits the City from approving any building permit or land useRead Moreentitle ment outside the City limits except in a few circumstances. These exceptions include:===================================== ========================================== 1. Under limited circumstances, to bring up to 10 total acres of land into the UGB for the provision of housing to serve all economic segments of the community. ========================================== 2. To avoid an unconstitutional taking of property. ========================================== 3. For development of a public park, public school, public facility, or public open space project. ========================================== 4. To address a significant threat to public health, safety, and welfare, such as failed septic system, provided that, there is no other feasible method to address the threat (for example, no way to repair or replace the septic system), the property is already developed, and the amendment would provide for no new development. ========================================== Here are the current exceptions to the UGB. I believe #1 was more specific as to using open space to provide affordable housing. Rather than have a boundary with exceptions why don't we go back to having land zoned for specific uses with the ability to apply for a variance? It seems to me that the current boundary isn't a boundary if the land can in fact be developed with a vote of the council.
