How do you move the needle on how your city evolves? Sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's easier. Commenting on Committee of Adjustment applications can be an easy one*.
The way CoA works is you have to show up to the meeting (April 15th in this case) in order to have legal rights in the process (notification of the written decision, the ability to appeal the decision to the OMB, etc). That said, if you email firstname.lastname@example.org they will forward your comments to the Board, and the Board does take those comments into consideration.
