The Planning Advisory Committee is recommending Council move ahead with the required rezoning – first and second reading of the zoning change could come this evening.

A detailed staff report is recommending Council proceed with the zoning amendment related to height of the building – and – variances with a number of conditions attached including a 5 year time frame for completion of the development. The report also outlines specific public benefits to be included as part of the approval including the developer contributing $130,000 for improvements to nearby Rainbow Park – $10,000 towards a bus shelter on Broad Street near the development – and $20,000 for beautification of the Tin Can Beach area.
