Community Meeting on Formula Retail Scheduled for Thursday, December 13
As directed by the City Council on November 13, 2012, a community meeting will be held to obtain input on criteria for use in the draft formula retail ordinance, as well as to create language for use in the definition of "community-serving business." Following this meeting, the draft ordinance will be prepared by staff and scheduled for public review at an upcoming Planning Commission meeting (anticipated in early 2013) followed by a presentation to the City Council. A definition of "community-serving business" will be also prepared and scheduled for an upcoming City Council meeting in order to continue the discussion on commercial diversification.
The community meeting, scheduled on Thursday, December 13, at 6:00 pm, will be broken into two sections: the first will focus on the draft formula retail ordinance proposed for the Civic Center and the second on defining the term "community-serving business," which is a separate task from the formula retail ordinance as directed by the City Council.
The first section will request public input on criteria to use in the draft formula retail ordinance (e.g., applicability, findings, exclusions, etc.). Staff will outline the direction set by the City Council and key factors to consider in the ordinance, then will present several rounds of questions on proposed criteria to include. A keypad polling device will be provided upon check-in, which will allow individuals to vote on the questions presented. The second section will focus on defining "community-serving business" where those in attendance will break into small groups to draft ideas for consideration by the group via polling.
NOTE: A limited number of keypad polling devices will be utilized at the meeting to obtain feedback. If you plan to attend this meeting and wish to participate in the polling process, please click HERE to reserve your spot.
