Two pro- posals were aired, and one was approved in less than two minutes. The committee had previously considered a six-unit develop- ment at 1343 Fourth St. called Aegis Court. T h e p r o j e c t w a s approved to proceed in the Downtown Edge zoning category, and the sign-off sheet was circulated to depart- ment representatives. B e c a u s e t h e c o m - m i t t e e 's p r e v i o u s concerns were sat- isfied, the approval required one minute and 45 seconds. The second proposal w a s n o t n e a r l y a s straightforward.
