Meeting Notice

The next meeting scheduled for the Retail Design and Development Standards project is a public hearing with the Planning Commission on Monday, November 8, 2010 at 6:30 pm.

A message from Susan Wells, President, SWNA:

For some reason the Large Retail Development Standards (Big Box Code) has been moved to emergency status, which means meeting dates have been moved up. It appears as though things are on track to get the new code approved and in place very quickly. This all seems good but, we still need to be active, take part and make sure it happens. We need the Planning Commission and the City Council to both approve the new code. Usually when the City Council has a hearing and approves items they are then enacted a few weeks later and then the date for effectiveness (or start) is set after that. For some reason the hearing, enactment and an effective date are all to be done in one reading at one meeting.

If you can attend both or either of these meetings please make an appearance. We need folks to show support and we need folks to speak and suggest that this code be approved.

These will be the last 2 meetings regarding this issue.
