Agendas, Minutes and Public Hearing Notices

Agendas for Planning Commission meetings are posted here as soon as they are prepared, generally, the Monday before the Commission meeting. 

 

Minutes are posted here once they have been approved by the Planning Commission, generally the month after the meeting occurs.

 

The third tab below provides notice of upcoming public hearings before the Planning Commission and City Council and provides access to materials associated with that public hearing.

The Planning Commission generally meets the last Monday of the month .  The deadline for submitting applications for the July meeting is Friday, July 5. 

 

The June meeting will include a public hearing on an application for annexation of property on E Jefferson St and a public hearing on proposed text amendments to the Land Use and Development Code to bring the Code into compliance with statutory requirements that standards for residential development be "clear and objective."

 

The Planning Department sends out an email with the Planning Commission agenda on a monthly basis. If you would like to receive the agenda delivered to your in-box, let us know.  Send us an email and we will add you to the distribution list.  We promise your name and email address will stay secure.

 

Agendas for the most recent six months are available below.   There was no meeting in December.  For older documents, please contact the Planning Department.  Usually, the entire packet will be posted, rather than just the agenda.  Note that the packet files may be large and downloading may be quicker if you right click on the link below and "save target as."

 

More information on each item on the agenda may be found at the Public Hearing Notices tab above.

This tab contains links to minutes from the past six months.  For older documents, please contact the Planning Department.

On Monday, August 5, the City Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed amendments to the Municipal Code.  This is not a Land Use public hearing.  Ordinance 1019, enacted in June 2018 established certain maintenance standards for commercial properties in the downtown area.  In the winter of 2019 the City Council appointed a Committee to review these standards.  The Committee has proposed a set of amendments to the Code that would expand certain maintenance requirements city-wide, address smoking on public sidewalks, awning maintenance, and illumination of building facades in the downtown area.

 

On Monday, August 5, the City Council will hold a public hearing on an application for the annexation of property at 1660 E Jefferson St.  The Planning Commission held a hearing on the application on June 25 and has recommended the property be annexed and be zoned Low Density Residential.

 

On Monday, August 19, the City Council will hold a public hearing on proposed legislative text amendments to the Land Use and Development to bring the Code into compliance with the statutory requirement that standards for residential development be clear and objective.  The Planning Commission held a hearing on the application on June 25 and has recommended the amendments be enacted.

 

Robert & Kay Pendleton have submitted an application for the City to annex the property at 1660 E Jefferson St.  The 1.4 acre property is currently developed with a single family dwelling.  No additional development activity is proposed.  

 

The Planning Commission public hearing was held on June 24.  The application form, a map of the area to be annexed, and the applicant's narrative statement are provided below.  Also below are the staff report and the Planning Commission's order recommending approval.  

 

The City Council's public hearing is scheduled for August 5.  The staff report and a draft ordinance are provided below.

Recent changes to state law require the local governments may only apply "clear and objective" standards to residential development.  City staff has identified a number of current provisions in the Land Use and Development Code that may not meet the statutory requirement, in that they are subjective or vague.

 

The Planning Commission held a public hearing on June 24 on a set of amendments intended to bring the Code into compliance with the statutory requirement.  In summary, the proposed changes:

 

  • Require garages to have the same exterior materials as the house
  • Clarify the siding requirements for manufactured homes
  • Establish an defined slope above which the exposed material enclosing the underside of a manufactured home may exceed 12 inches on the downhill side
  • Modify the purposes of the multifamily standards remove subjective purposes
  • Clarify the multifamily standards for balconies and outdoor corridors
  • Specify a depth needed for an entry recess on multifamily dwellings
  • Clarify the siding requirements for multifamily dwellings
  • Remove reference to compatibility in the criteria for land divisions
  • Clarify the requirements for a send entrance for subdivisions or multifamily developments
  • Clarify the fish habitat protection standards.

 

A copy of the proposed amendments for the hearing, the staff report and the Planning Commission's order recommending adoption of the amendments are posted below.

The City Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed amendments on Monday, August 19.

Ordinance 1019, enacted in June 2018 established certain maintenance standards for commercial properties in the downtown area.  In the winter of 12019 the City Council a pointed a Committee to review these standards.  The committee has proposed a set of amendments to the Code that would expand certain maintenance requirements city-wide, address smoking on public sidewalks, awning maintenance, and illumination of building facades in the downtown area.

The City Council will be holding a public hearing on the proposed Code amendments on Monday, August 5.  A copy of the report from the Committee to the Council and a copy of the proposed amendments are provided below.
