November 19th City Council Notes


Council Meeting November 19, 2013

At this weeks meeting I requested the following changes to the Regional Plan.

1. The plan should not prefer compact development over all other types of development but instead should support a holistic approach to land use consistent with zoning codes that allow for a variety of development options.

2. Adequately plan for and expand auto capacity and circulation while also addressing alternative transportation and pedestrian options.

3. Simplify and streamline the plan.

FINAL OPPORTUNITY TO COMMENT ON THE PLAN (to the City Council) WILL BE DECEMBER 3RD AT 7:00PM AT CITY HALL.

December 3rd will also be the day the County Board votes on the County’s Plan (for the FMPO area, outside the City limits, Doney Park, Kachina etc)

Council will debate changes to the plan on December 6th at our all day retreat at the Aqua Plex from 8:00AM-5:00PM. This meeting is open to the public but public comment will be closed.
