NOTE City laws are known as ordinances.  Before a City ordinance can be enacted it must be introduced (1st Reading) and then approved (2nd reading).  Resolutions are normally actions through which City Council reinforces or makes policy not rising to the level of law.  Motions are generally related to direction from City Council to City staff to take certain actions.  

NO ITEMS ARE LISTED ON THE CONSENT AGENDA FOR THIS MEETING.

REGULAR AGENDA

2nd Reading Ordinance 2019-004 to amend the municipal budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2018, and ending June 30, 2019, by increasing the amount of building permit fees for the purpose of funding a workforce housing program.

Council has stated Economic Development is a priority for this community, and that providing adequate workforce and affordable housing is a key component of an economic development strategy.  To fund this proposal, staff recommends an additional fee of 0.25% of the construction value of any permit (after the first $100,000 of value) would be used exclusively to pay the costs of the city’s Workforce Housing Program, including any related administrative costs.  To increase this fee, it is necessary to amend the 2018-19 Municipal Budget. 

This item is directly related to Resolution R2019-005, which lays out City Council’s policy with respect to workforce housing.  

2nd Reading Ordinance 2019-005 to enact in Chapter 15, Planning and Development, a new Article V, special property tax assessments for rehabilitated historic properties. 

In order to be eligible for historic tax credits, a structure must be at least 50 years old and have been included on the national historic register.  Each eligible structure must be approved individually, but the process is expedited if the district where the structure is located is a designated historic district.  Inclusion in such a district does not restrict owners of other structures in the district from modifying or demolishing the structure as needed. 

This proposal creates five geographic protection classifications, including:

  • Landmark – Applied to 20+ year old structures, improvements or physical features which have historic, architectural, aesthetic, social or cultural significance.
  • Landmark district – Applied to an area surrounding a landmark in order to protect the landmark, or to an area which is considered of substantial importance.
  • Architectural Conservation district – Applied to distinct sections of the city defined by architectural features, distinctive character of the district or distinctive function. 
  • Historic Commercial district – Areas which constitute distinctive commercial sections.
  • Protection Areas – Applied to areas which are less distinctively defined, but should be subject to urban design regulations.

The proposed ordinance also establishes a process to establish historic districts:

  • Prior to designation of any area, the Review Committee (the Community Appearance Board) will submit a report and recommendation to Council on the district boundaries and location.
  • To receive preliminary certification, a property must meet the following conditions: 
--  The property has received historic designation from Council. 
--  The proposed rehabilitation work is approved by the Review Committee.
  • To receive final certification, a property must meet the following conditions: 
--  The property has received preliminary certification. 
--  The minimum expenditures for rehabilitation were paid. 
--  The completed rehabilitation is approved by the designated administrative officer as being consistent with the preliminary certification.

1st Reading Ordinance 2019-006 to amend Ordinance 2017-044, Appendix A Zoning of the Code of Ordinances, to allow food trucks as a conditional use in the zoning code. 

This amended ordinance includes the following changes:

  • Extends the program another year.
  • Increases the number of allowed permits from 6 to 20.
  • Food trucks used at a private catering event are defined as a catering truck and are not counted towards the 20 permits.
  • Besides being allowed in HC-1 and HC-2 zones, food trucks are recommended to be allowed as a conditional use in the E, MP, WM and LM zoning districts. 
  • Decreases the distance from existing restaurants from 500 feet to 300 feet.
  • Allows temporary shade structures within 8 feet of the food truck.
  • Decreases the permit fee from $150 to $25 for additional locations after the first two locations.
  • No permit fees for food trucks on city-owned property (permits still required). 
  • Adds "Food Carts" to the definitions.
