Council is once again scheduled to discuss a revision of the Land Development Code today. According a post by Mayor Steve Adler on the City Council Message Board, Council will aim to finish its discussion by 1 p.m. in order to give those scheduled to attend a Capital Metro board meeting enough time to scramble across town to make the meeting. According to that same post, Council will hear a staff presentation and ask questions about that presentation for the first hour, then take up “Residential House-Scale Zones (Text and Map); Transition Zones (R4-RM1; Text and Map); Residential Multi-Unit, Mixed Use, Main Street, and other Zones (Text and Map); Affordable Housing (Density Bonuses, etc.); Non-Zoning (Drainage, Water Quality, Transportation, Tree Protection, Parkland, Signs, etc.); and Process (Site Plans, Subdivision, Variances, etc.).” The last 15 minutes are earmarked for the scope and process for first-reading deliberations, scheduled for Dec. 9.
