The following two proposed amendments are being delayed for future meeting.

Increase impervious surface the Cultural and Business District from 85% t0 95% and in the Multifamily-High zone (E Sunset Way only) from 50% to 75%.  The Council is concerned about the potential impacts on storm and surface water in these two areas if impervious surface is increased.  The Storm and Surface Water Master Plan is currently going through an update and staff is addressing known issues in Olde Town. Once this plan is complete, staff and Council will revisit the proposed impervious surface increases and better address Council’s concerns.

Provide parking reductions for Neighborhood Oriented Businesses.  The Administration has decided the proposed amendment needs to be refined and better aligned with types of businesses to make implementation of the reductions clearer for both businesses and staff.
