Shelly Allen Back on the Board > Planning & Zoning Meeting Wed 19 July 2017

Defeated in the election as the hand-selected candidate to succeed Alex Finter and endorsed by Mayor John Giles and others in the entrenched political establishment to gain a seat for District 2 on the Mesa City Council, Shelly Allen was nominated and appointed to the PZ Board by the mayor.
PLEASE NOTE: To help readers of this blog deal with what's going in complex issues in front of the members, the agenda for this meeting is posted here after noting, once again that very members of the public or anyone at all in a city of over 475,000 bother to take the time to find out what is being planned.
