I hope all of us will post responses to the NOI for the planning rule that we find interesting. Frankly, we all are a bit overwhelmed at this point (some people have sent me copies of theirs, plus we will all be able to access the comments when they are published on the FS website). I hope to pull out interesting ideas from them and discuss them here, but for now I only have time to post and hopefully someone else will pull out the ideas. All are welcome to post their own responses to the NOI directly on this blog.
John found various response letters linked on the WISE blog. Here’s the link.
