Big decision tonight. Looking forward to getting the results. Hopefully twitter will provide.

 

Can't make it, but my letter of support is in the city's hands.

 

There will be live video of the council meeting here - http://www.victoria....webcasting.html

Watching the presentation by the developer, it's pretty clear that they've bent over backwards to please the neighbours.

 

If this fails, I can't see what would pass while being economically feasible for a developer.

It's a strong proposal but that was poor a and unprepared presentation by the developer.
And he was justifiably nervous.

The new mike is working better, but the video feed has cut out a few times.

It gets a little tiring when all the NIMBYS are stuck on repeat...
