City Council heard testimony from 119 people on the Residential Infill Project on November 9 and 16 and received 135 letters about the recommendations in the Concept Report. Next they will discuss the staff recommendations and could propose changes based on what they heard from the public. Commissioners will then vote on a resolution directing project staff to develop Zoning Code language and map changes over the next year, which will implement their approved concepts.
