ADDRESS CONCERNS TO JUST YOUR COMMISSIONER?  A
lthough you are frequently told to address your issues through your one Commissioner, your Commissioner may have a completely different point of view , so he may not present your position on an issue to the Board at all .  Since all the other  Board members  vote on each issue, it is important that they understand how others are being affected - even those not in their Ward.
   Also your lone Commissioner, even if he IS presenting your view, is easily (and most frequently) out-voted by the other 14, as has been seen in spades in important issue after  important issue - especially zoning issues. The St Michael's debacle, The Wawa debacle, and others show us that the actions of one affect us all re: amount of greenspace, traffic, stormwater, etc. .... .  These are the things that create quality of life and bring the value to our homes for ALL of us.   So it is important  to address ALL those who will be voting on your concerns.

   Besides calling or emailing a single Commissioner ( or several or all )  you can attend a Board meeting - where we residents have worked hard to enable you to have full speaking rights - even to bring up an issue that the Commissioners did NOT put on the agenda.  You have 3 mins at the end of each full Board meeting to do so - and Comnmisioners who are Committee heads can allow you to speak freely at the end of any Committee topic at the Committee meetings.   See Public Comment for more info .
