The videos from last week’s hearing on the proposed Big Wave development have proven popular so I thought it might be useful to present a sample of the public comments in shorter form.
The following two, ten-minute videos capture the essence of the public comments made for and against Big Wave. I’ve taken great license in editing–I’ve excerpted portions of comments and disregarded others altogether. My guiding principal was less trying to paint the proceedings as favoring one side or the other and more looking for portions that were unique for one reason or another. In the end I simply deleted several speakers completely in order to keep each video under he required ten minute length.
I have not included the introductory presentation by county planner Camille Leung, nor have I include the presentations by the Big Wave leadership team or the presentations by the representatives from organizations opposed to Big Wave that spoke immediately afterward. All of that material can be easily found in the appropriate menu item in the full-length video.
What I have tried to do is to fairly characterize the thoughts expressed by the citizens in the audience, who took time off work and waited hours for their two minutes to speak.
