January surprise

Wednesday, February 1, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

At yesterday’s work session, City Council Member Alison Alter told her colleagues that she would be asking for a two-week postponement on the Austin Oaks Planned Unit Development case. She also revealed that the case now has a petition against it – with over 40 percent of neighbors within 200 feet of the project in opposition. Mayor Steve Adler agreed that, with the developer and neighborhood both amenable to a postponement, it would most likely be heard at Council’s Feb. 16 meeting. If the petition against the rezoning is valid, it will take a supermajority of Council, or nine votes, to be approved instead of a simple majority.
