25 Jun Public Hearing on Signature Initiative Ordinances TONIGHT!
Public Hearing on Signature Initiative Ordinances
Those interested in testifying can sign in on the sheet located outside of the council chambers before the meeting begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday night.
If the city council chooses not to adopt the ordinances as written, the ordinances will be placed on the November ballot for voters to decide if they should be enacted. If this “vote on whether to vote” passes, it would require subsequent votes before either project could proceed.
If the council elects to adopt the ordinances immediately, the vote on the Library Campus project could come as soon as November, bypassing the need for two votes.
It is unclear how the ordinance calling for a vote on a potential downtown sports park could or should move forward. No formal proposal has been presented by the sports park developer since he began working to put the project on a new site last year. Without that proposal it is unclear what role the city would have, if any, in the project, or exactly what a ballot measure would be asking of voters.
