ACE has learned that an organized effort is being made to put forth and support candidates for the FIVE council positions up for election this year who likely will actively support increasing building heights in the Downtown Waterfront Activity Center. As many of you know, this issue in 2003/2004 led to the forming of ACE. This will become a topic of discussion at future meetings. Also for your information, we decided at our last meeting that as in past years we will plan and sponsor a City Position candidate forum, probably sometime in the early fall this year. In addition to the 5 council positions up for election, the position of Mayor will be on the ballot. It will certainly be an interesting year.
