CodeNEXT day at City Council
Wednesday, May 30, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano
After much hype and hand-wringing and postcard sending, City Council held their first CodeNEXT public hearing. The meeting, which was just over three hours, began in the morning and adjourned until the afternoon, when only a handful of speakers was on hand to say their piece about the Land Development Code rewrite. The entire meeting, for those who were unable to watch in real time, is available on the city’s website. In all, the final tally was 24 speakers against, 17 speakers for and 19 speakers signed up as “neutral.” A complete list of speakers is also available online, here. The second (and final) meeting will take place on Saturday, June 2, at 10 a.m. Here’s how to register to speak at that meeting. Following the public meetings, Council will hold a series of work sessions and voting sessions, which are expected to conclude by the end of June.
