As you can see below that the Greensboro Technical Review Committee (TRC) which is made up of staff members from various departments within the City of Greensboro, this week sent out their agenda.In this agenda at #6 look below highlighted in RED is a meeting today at the Triad Real Estate and Building Industry Coalition office also known as the "TREBIC CARTEL" . This is just another example of the cozy relationship with this Special Interest Group and the City of Greensboro. Is the public allowed to go?What is discussed?Are there minutes from this meeting?These are the questions that need to get answered.
The City of Greensboro needs to quit these type of relationships or needs to be held accountable and transparent on what happens at these meetings . This type of outing is meant to curry favor with the TRC Board show them a good meal and vote in the favor of TREBIC.
To also see this memo come from Dick Hails, head of the Greensboro Planning Department and say "Trebic Meeting Reminder" just goes to show you how far this special interest is inbedded into local government and needs to stop.
It is time that citizens in the Triad and especially in Greensboro let their council members know that the influence of TREBIC needs to come to a end . No more putting TREBIC members on any board or commission. This special interest reminds me of the Fox guarding the hen house.Enough is enough
