Aurora IBJ article: Lehman said “I think it’s better than what we had. It’s not the best.”

IBJ coverage from last nights city council meeting. The council voted in favor of Aurora PUD in their usually 5-2 format. The 5-2 voting trend continued in a passing vote for Scofield Farms. I find it interesting that our single city council member with an urban planning background continues to be a consistent "no" vote on these projects. Maybe other city council members should take this members expertise into consideration.  I think the quote by Lehman in the header sheds light on a great topic. Why isn't the city demanding the best from developers? The city should not vote based on a good enough policy. A "D" grade project is better than an "F" grade project but it is still not an "A" grade project. Why is the city not holding developers to an "A" grade?
