City Council Study Session 24 July 2018 (P4, Protocols, Sign Code)

City Council Study Session                     24 July 2018              Citizen Minutes

1.  Amend section 10-17-4, regarding sign code definitions, and section 10-17-6-2, to add definitions for human signs and rotating signs – if you are interested please watch the meeting.

2.  Discussion on the P4 (Preliminary Project Plan process) in Title 10, Chapter 1 of the City’s Zoning Code – Driscoll said he thought the process was doing what they wanted it to do.  Valdes likes the fact that the staff presents and not the developer.  He said he would like to have more traffic impact included in the reports.  Fey wanted a summary from staff on the impact of the project on the neighborhoods around it; evaluate how it fits.  She also asked for pictures of the area built out to the maximum allowed by the zoning request.    Elrod liked the process.

3.  Proposed Amendment to Council Protocols and Standards for Accountability – council discussed  a new section to their protocols that provided a process for the mayor and the mayor pro to reprimand council members informally and formally and then a public censure.  Brinkman said she wasn’t concerned because they needed this but they needed it if and when they had a reason to use it.  Cole thought there should be something before an informal reprimand – informal feedback perhaps.  Valdes said he was not comfortable with it.  Regarding public censure that is what elections are for.  He thought this went a little too far.  Elrod said it was heavy handed.  Fey agreed with Elrod and she was concerned that only the mayor and the mayor pro rem were allowed to use the process.  Brinkman said censure has been used to signal to a community and can have an effect on a community.  She agreed with Fey that all seven should be allowed to use the process.  Fey asked why this was brought forward.  Relph said it came up in April and it was a flagged item.  Schlachter thought this was important to do and it was not too heavy handed.
