  1. Not sure what to make of this. Does ADI have to make a new application for the consolidated lots? And if so, why would the OMB be entertaining reconvening on the 16th? Can’t imagine what if anything would be in their new proposal that would satisfy all of the issues that residents, Council and Staff had with the original development application.

What's your take?
