Planning commission

At least three Cincinnati Council Members are expressing concern after the city manager removed an item from the city planning commission's November 21st meeting regarding Wasson Way.  

Harry Black said he asked the item be removed because he did not believe it had been thoroughly vetted.  Black is also a member of the planning commission.  

Council Member Yvette Simpson said that action could mean there is an extra level of review for some items.

Update:  It appears likely five Cincinnati Council members are ready to support the city manager's plan to lease most of the city's parking facilities to the Greater Cincinnati Port Authority and four private companies.  

The Budget and Finance Committee could vote on the issue Monday.  

Council Member Wendell Young confirmed Friday he plans to vote yes and four other members have generally expressed support during recent hearings.
