Two big announcements:
This council has never had a meaningful discussion on density. That changes Monday. See details below
In other news, I have posthumously declared Sean Connery to be King of Scotland. This has the same force of law as the media's declaration of the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election while there is pending litigation, votes are uncertified, and the meeting of the electoral college has not yet taken place
If you wish to speak at the meeting, you may register here by 3:00 PM Monday. Please register ONLY if you wish to speak. You may alternatively share your thoughts by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by 3:00 PM Monday.
