Draft code draft schedule
Friday, October 25, 2019 by Elizabeth Pagano
With the majority of City Council’s discussion about public camping hopefully behind us, it’s time for the city to turn its eyes back to the review of the draft Land Development Code, which is scheduled to move forward posthaste. According to an update posted on the City Council Message Board by Mayor Steve Adler, Council will next take up the draft code on Monday, Nov. 18 in a work session (Adler suggests this could also serve as “staff’s deadline for flagging topics that need further policy direction from Council) and again in work sessions Dec. 3 and 4. The first Council public hearing will take place on Saturday, Dec. 7, with Council’s first opportunity to vote on the draft Dec. 9. While the scope of those hearings is still being sorted out, Council members Paige Ellis and Greg Casar have both indicated a preference to hear changes to the Save Our Springs Ordinance separate from the LDC rewrite.
