CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: September 12, 2000
Subject/Title: Downtown Historic Preservation Plan
Submitted by: Jon Elam
Approved by: Jon Elam
Request the Neighborhood Committee to study the development of a historic
preservation plan for downtown.
The City Council discussed this item briefly at the August 22, 2000 meeting.
Many cities have adopted downtown historic preservation ordinances and
plans. These plans usually evolve from a study or plan that is prepared
by a consultant or planning team. The Community Development Department
has planned, once the General Plan amendment is completed, to undertake
a comprehensive downtown development plan.
If the City Council wants to accelerate this work, having the Neighborhood
Committee study various approaches used might be a good first step. The
biggest step is to identify who could provide the staff support for that
effort at this time.
