CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 30
Meeting Date: February 13, 2001
Subject/Title: Request of Councilmembers for Consideration of Amending the Size of the General Plan Update (GPU) Working Group
Submitted by: Mitch Oshinsky, AICP, Community Development Director
Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
That Council discuss this matter and provide direction to staff.
At the start of the GPU process, the Council appointed 22 members to the Working Group, which was charged as being the policy sounding board, and for making recommendations to the Planning Commission and City Council on the major issues arising out of the Update. The original membership roster (attached) included the full Council and Planning Commission, plus 12 other appointees.
Due to the recent Council election, and change in Commission membership, the Working Group has been reduced from 22 to 20, in that Bill Hill and Steve Padgett have now assumed Council and Commission seats, rather than appointee seats.
Councilmembers have asked me to bring the size of the Working Group up for discussion at Council, because at a couple of recent meetings it was hard to get a quorum (12 of the 22 members). Now that the Group is down to 20 members, a quorum is 11. I was also asked to report on the number of recent meetings missed by the appointees.
