6:00 Open House re: Main and Parrish Intersection Project – The June City newsletter invited the public to attend an open house on July 17 at 6:00 p.m. regarding this project. Affected property owners were invited to the June 19 City Council meeting and were allowed to make comments. Those who still oppose this project have made a concerted effort to rally citizens to attend Tuesday night’s open house and Council meeting. Mayor Russell has agreed to allow some more time during the regular meeting for public comment. He would like to limit that, however, to those who either did not have an opportunity to speak in the June 19 meeting, or who have something new to say. Residents will also have opportunity during the open house, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., to ask any questions of staff or speak with Council members one on one. Staff will be manning displays in the lobby during the open house and have a number of handouts. At 7:00 p.m. City Council will begin its regular meeting. Early in that meeting staff will provide a project update and address specific issues raised by concerned citizens. Those issues can also be addressed during the open house. After the staff report in the Council meeting, the Mayor will allow public comment. Following that, the Council should give staff whatever direction can be agreed upon pertaining to more analysis, etc. When the Council is ready to move on to other matters on the agenda, the Mayor should invite citizens who still have questions or concerns to move into the lobby where they can continue talking with staff. Dinner will be provided to Council members in the break room beginning at 5:30 p.m.
7:00 City Council meeting
E.1. Minutes Review and Acceptance – The minutes to be approved are enclosed.
E.2. Main and Parrish Intersection Project – See the open house summary above for explanation of this part of the Council meeting.
E.3. Summary Action Calendar
E.4. Proposed Hunting Ban – The City Council discussed a proposed hunting ban within city limits in two prior meetings. At their June 19 meeting, City Council directed staff to prepare a map depicting the areas that would be legally available for hunting after taking into consideration the 600-foot buffer from structures, and the wishes of individual property owners. That map is enclosed and provides a logical basis for prohibiting hunting within the city between Sheep Road and Firebreak Road. The area west of the Sheep Road would still be available for hunting (except the Legacy Nature Preserve where hunting is currently prohibited). If the City Council agrees with the area proposed for a hunting ban, they should go on record as such and forward that recommendation to the State Wildlife Board. If approved by the State Board, the City Council would then adopt a formal ordinance implementing this ban in a subsequent meeting.
E.5. Smoke Shop Ordinance – The Planning Commission was scheduled to discuss a proposed ordinance either prohibiting smoke shops altogether or limiting these to the industrial zone, at their July 11 meeting. However, the Commission postponed their discussion; therefore, the City Council will need to postpone their public hearing and discussion of this matter until a later meeting. Since the matter was noticed, however, for a public hearing in this Council meeting, the agenda shows that and indicates it will be postponed.
E.7. Amendment to Wendy’s Development Agreement – Wendy’s restaurant is seeking amendments to its site plan to allow a remake of the building exterior. To allow their proposed improvements, staff are recommending an amendment to the Development Agreement for the Centerville Marketplace development, specifically affecting Lot 11, the location of the current Wendy’s restaurant. The Planning Commission still needs to approve the site plan, but the Community Development Director thought it was wise, in this case, to first get the City Council’s reaction because of the Council’s earlier involvement in decisions of this type.
E.8. Code Enforcement Report – As requested by the City Council several years ago, staff continue to provide a report every six months of their code enforcement activities. That report is enclosed.
E.9. Mayor’s Report – The Mayor will mention the grand reopening of Dick’s Market, which will be located in the former Fresh Market Store. The Mayor will give a brief report from his perspective of the July 4th Celebration. He will also give the Council some advance notice of a subject that will be on the Council’s August 7 agenda—i.e., a public hearing on a proposed revision to the Fire Impact Fee.
E.10. City Manager’s Report – I may report on a few matters.
8:50 Adjourn to RDA meeting – In the RDA meeting the Board will discuss whether to use RDA funds to assist in repairs at both Pheasantbrook and the Riviera Townhomes. Staff recently submitted applications for Community Development Block Grant funding for these repairs, with matches coming from the homeowners and the RDA. The enclosed staff report, prepared by Blaine Lutz, notes that only a small portion of the requested CDBG funds were granted. Therefore, he is seeking the RDA Board’s direction as to how to proceed.
9:20 Reconvene to City Council meeting
E.12. Closed meeting – I recommend a closed meeting for several reasons, including discussion of the purchase and sale of property and one or more personnel matters.
E.13. Possible action following closed meeting – There may be some action following the closed meeting pertaining to items discussed in the closed session.
