Willow Park City Council, P&Z workshop builds positive resolutions

February 23, 2010 by Lori Cope

Willow Park City Council and the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission came away from an hour-and-a-half workshop on Feb. 22 with agreed-upon tactics to improve communication, education, and direction.

The workshop came a week following the mayor’s recommendation during the Feb. 15 city council meeting to disband the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z). The recommendation was resolved with the resignation of P&Z Chairman Marvin Glasgow and member David Carlisle. During the Feb. 15 meeting, the mayor and some council members voiced concern over what was described as the P&Z’s insubordinate attitude.

During the Feb. 22 workshop, Mayor Ken Hawkins spoke for the first hour detailing the positive work of the council that is, and will, benefit Willow Park.

Councilman Gene Martin then began a process to allow each of the council members and P&Z members to voice their concerns so improvements and ways to correct problems can be formulated.

Some council members offered opinion that there had been inaccurate and inflammatory information coming from the P&Z that could have led to legal action against the city. Some also noted there had been slanderous and negative comments from members of the P&Z about the council made publicly and in conversations.

Some P&Z members offered opinion that the planning and zoning information generated from their group did not receive appropriate feedback from council or direction from legal counsel. Some P&Z members also noted that information delivered from the two resigned members was not always reflective of their entire group.

For the complete story on the workshop, see the Feb. 26 issue of The Community News.
