After the decisive vote for a new mayor and two new City Council members, we can look forward to a city government that is transparent and more receptive to the wishes of Auburn citizens.

However, the results from Nov. 7 will not affect decisions that will be made at the upcoming Planning Board meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 14.

A year’s worth of work on issues around Lake Auburn will be handled in one meeting, including rezoning the area between Gracelawn Road and the yet-to-be established watershed boundary from the Agriculture and Resource Protection Zone to General Business/Community Development.

All interested persons should attend this meeting. Public input about the future of Lake Auburn should not be a formality to be checked off as quickly as possible.

It’s important to let the Planning Board know, as was demonstrated by the municipal election, that many Auburn citizens do not support development on our lake.
