As the Vallejo Times Herald reports:

Chris Platzer said in an email to the Vallejo Times-Herald on Saturday that he has resigned from the Vallejo Planning Commission, effectively immediately — days before the Vallejo City Council was set to consider a resolution removing him from the seven-person commission…

…Platzer was seen drinking a beer and throwing his cat through the air during a commission meeting held via teleconference on April 20. [Pols emphasis]

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the commission held an online meeting to discuss the Fairview at Northgate project, which includes a new 152,000-square-foot Costco building, 178 homes, plus a 27,500-square-foot commercial center, and a 5.7-acres of open space that will divide the commercial section and homes.
