CodeNEXT is here

Tuesday, May 1, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

CodeNEXT is truly upon us, with the official start of public hearings. The first such hearing was held on Saturday – a joint meeting of the Zoning and Platting Commission and the Planning Commission held at the Dove Springs Recreation Center. That meeting ran from 10:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., ending an hour earlier than scheduled. With most of the public testimony done well before that point, with about 100 people speaking, commissioners remained at the meeting for several hours in case any speakers showed up, managing to catch one last speaker who used his time to complain about the existence of bike lanes. In the absence of speakers, commissioners took the opportunity to comment on CodeNEXT for about an hour. Those remarks, and the public testimony, can be seen in its entirety online. Tonight, the fun resumes with a second public hearing of the joint commissions, which will take place at the Palmer Events Center at 4 p.m. Then, on May 29 and June 2, City Council will hold its public hearings.

This whisper has been corrected to reflect the correct dates of the City Council hearings.
