I would like to commend Bill Bauer for his good work explaining for the general reader the essence of what is happening in the zoning ordinance update process, now midway through its completion (“Are we being duped with zoning code updates?” My Write, Jan. 12). As a resident who has been concerned about the low attendance at Planning Commission meetings devoted to this process and a general lack of involvement by the residents in the zoning update, I wanted to let you know that the meeting this week at the Jan. 15 Planning Commission was standing room only.

I credit Bill Bauer’s last two My Write columns for the enthusiastic turnout. This citizen engagement is very important because the zoning will define much of what can be built in Santa Monica for many years to come
