Staff Commentaries are short opinion position papers created by the Department of Planning in response to frequently addressed issues or complicated matters. These commentaries are intended to be reasonably informal and are not intended to be a legal opinion or a definitive land use law analysis, both of which the Department is not capable of providing. The commentaries are intended to be thought-provoking, and to enable the public to access the Department’s position on certain topics.
Ultimately, these opinion papers should be considered biased.
