For the record and posterity…
@NHelmholdt and I grabbed an impromptu lunch together today to chat about how Open Savannah can possibly collaborate with THEMPC going forward. For those of you unfamiliar, THEMPC is the regional (well, Chatham County mainly) authority for all things urban planning, including zoning, urban planning, etc.
We talked about the new blueprint from the MPC, and how it would set the guidelines going forward for how different agencies submit their budget requests to the commission for approval.
We discussed the possibility of writing up a simple Memorandum of Understanding re: working with THEMPC going forward. Nick is going to check and see if that’s a possibility.
