Here’s an excerpt about community response to development.
This is a fascinating article about how the Motion Picture Academy museum worked with local citizens to avoid a lawsuit. Look at the concerns. Many are identical to those that some Palisades residents have with the Caruso project.
Too bad Wifi at the library was so bad we could not broadcast live.
Luckily, we made a local backup that is now available online.

EVENT ID: 100-524-509
Tonight is an experiment. Our goal is to raise our common concerns and, more importantly, to start the process of coming to consensus on solutions that work for our community and Caruso.
If this works, at the end of the meeting, I suggest we divvy up the issues to interested residents who can continue the work in “living room” meetings and share ideas on the www.Palitown.com website with the rest of the group and community. We can then all meet again, and if we feel we are ready, take the conversation to Caruso and our leaders, where the true work of consensus begins.
This meeting is not a place for grandstanding or expressing hardline support or opposition. There are lots of other places to do that. This is about working together.
We will start with the most important subjects you listed in the survey. Some issues might get lumped together as they are interrelated. I will make a short introduction, step back, and then it’s off to the races. We will cover as much as we can in the time period.
I am also opening up the survey to anyone who wants to take it, not just attendees. If you’ve already taken it, don’t try again as the system can tell. The link is: http://svy.mk/1MvbzZ9 and the password is dolphin.
Some basic rules to keep us on track:
No complaining or attacking
Raise facts and real concerns only
Keep things simple and short
Consider all positions (yours, neighbors, Businesses, Caruso)
Offer solutions, even wild ones
As a reminder, the audio from the meeting will be live streamed so we can get chat input from people who cannot make it. It’s your choice if you want to say your name or not.
