Meeting Notice

The public hearing for City Council will be on Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 3:00 pm. The November 16, 2010 meeting will include the approval of the amendments, the enactment and an effective date in one reading at the same City Council hearing date.

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.

Moving the date of the City Council meeting does change the time from a 6:30 pm meeting to a 3:00 pm meeting. I know this is difficult for a lot of folks to make but let's see if we can get some good attendance and convince the Council to approve this code.

These will be the last meeting regarding this issue.

Thank you everyone and I hope to see you at the meetings.

Suzan Wells
