Topic: Interim parking ordinance
Type: Presentation
Takeaway: Jeff Kostechka of Public Works delivered a lengthy slide show on the plethora of factors to be considered under an interim parking ordinance. The city Council is moving earnestly towards eliminating requirement that residences have offstreet parking lot. This will necessitate the city to consider issues related to number, size, orientation, and location of parking spaces for each lot and each street. Sidewalks, trees, greenway corridors, bike and pedestrian traffic, connectivity, and room for garbage, mail and recycling are some of the issues to be discussed. Jeff says that they now have many more questions and answers.

Topic: Road master plan
Type: Presentation
Takeaway: Public works proposes that the council consider adopting a road master plan which can be enforced and followed. Plan would intend to ensure predictability of where roads will be built. It would address trees, open space in stormwater. The master plan should reduce the number of streets to keep cost low for developers and homeowners. It would consider public safety, access, great density impacts and critical areas as they consider topography.
