Dates for Council's CodeNEXT public hearings

Postby Leslie Pool » Sat Mar 10, 2018 4:32 pm

Colleagues, last week Planning & Zoning staff checked with Council offices to advise that dates for Council's two CodeNEXT public hearings were being tentatively set for May 30 and 31, 2018. What wasn't evident at the time this was done was that graduation ceremonies for numerous area high schools are set on those two days, making for some challenging choices for families who want to weigh in on CodeNEXT at the public hearings.

To remedy this, I suggest pushing one of the two May dates into the next week. Without checking everyone's calendars and availability at this time, I do note that we don't have a Council meeting the first week of June, so it may be possible to hold the second public hearing on one of these days: June 5, 6, or 7.

Formal action to set the public hearing will be at our next meeting on March 22.

Seeing that AISD's last day of classes is May 30th, it might make more sense to address this concern by moving one of the hearings *earlier* rather than later and avoid pushing into summer vacation time. But ultimately I think it's hard to find a perfect date and am happy sticking with the proposed timeline.
