Statesman PUD talk now set for Aug. 30
Wednesday, August 17, 2022 by Jo Clifton
Although city staff hoped to have a special called City Council meeting on Aug. 22 to discuss the Statesman planned unit development and the South Central Waterfront plan, Council members were unable to agree on a time they would all be available before the Aug. 30 work session. This information comes via Mayor Steve Adler’s posts on the City Council Message Board. In anticipation of the Aug. 22 meeting, Adler wrote, “We will be able, and staff will be available, to discuss the PUD case in front of us as well as the steps necessary to move forward with the South Central Waterfront, including the regulating plan, the (tax increment reinvestment zone), and whether the TIRZ revenue could be impacted by increasing height or (floor area ratio) entitlements.” Those conversations could take hours, but might be truncated because of conversations they might want to have about other items on the Sept. 1 agenda. While it’s too soon to know what’s going to be on that agenda, it will likely have a number of other zoning cases as well as items put off while Council has been working on the budget.
