Staff reports and <br />comments from neighbors as well as <br />results from council members' own <br />study of the issues must be con· <br />sidered, she said. <br />"If we only referred to the Plann- <br />ing and Zoning presentation, we <br />would just be hearing an applicatio~ <br />twice " she said, and the council <br />' " f "would just be a rubber stamp or <br />the commission. <br />-SUSAN KEATON <br />Paradise Valley Cri1rne Rate ~lardly 'Grht'll'· <br />Edito~:. ~ /; /71.,1 Bi-I C. / '"'/6cards, came to just a lit.tic mon <br />.
