    Council noted that a public hearing regarding CDBG/Community Agency Grants is scheduled for April 24, 2007.  In response to a request, it was noted that local organization accomplishments are submitted in writing through the commission process and will be forwarded in the City Council packet.  A request was made that any written comments to be submitted at the April 24 meeting be done in writing and provided to the Council.  The AC Committee directed staff to submit a suggested agenda format for consideration at the next Agenda Committee meeting.

    Due to the number of significant land use items that will require a significant amount of time, it was suggested that the condo conversion workshop be rescheduled from April 24 to May 15, 2007 (requires amendment to the Council meeting schedule to add May 15 as a regular meeting); that a workshop on inclusionary housing be set for July 10, 2007; and the need to schedule items coming through the Zoning Adjustments Board.

     

    Mayor Bates indicated that in the future, when items come to Council to make the determination whether or not to schedule a public hearing, that he would allow a total of five minutes each to the applicant and his/her representatives and the appellants and their representatives.
