City Council Extends Moratorium for 90 Days

The City Council voted on June 26 to extend the moratorium 90 days to give City staff more time to complete ongoing work identified in the original moratorium work plan. 

The moratorium on the acceptance and processing of certain development applications (with exceptions) was adopted by the Council on January 9 and was set to expire on July 9. A public hearing was held at the Council meeting on June 26 and Council adopted Ordinance No. 2018-23 which extends the moratorium another 90 days. 

City staff are working with the Design Review Board and Planning Commission to provide frequent work plan updates and need more time to continue land use review procedures and design guidelines. 

“I think we ought to get focused and get this done,” said Michael Killion who is a member of the Planning Commission. “I kind of like the 90-day (extension), so that we work hard, get focused and get it done.”
