On July 23, 2018, the Transportation and Circulation Commission recommended approval of the Nighttime Paid Parking Pilot Program and continued a decision on the Employee Permit Parking Program. The City Council will be considering the Nighttime Paid Parking Pilot program at its meeting on Tuesday, August 21, 2018. Please see the meeting notice for details. The Agenda Report for the City Council meeting can be found at the link below once available.
At its meeting on June 5, 2018, the City Council approved a Resolution of Intention to amend the City's Municipal Code regarding regulations for businesses selling alcohol for on-site consumption (i.e. restaurants and bars). This was the first step in updating the City's development and operational standards. In August, 2018 Community Development held a study session with the Planning Commission and public to get feedback on proposed amendments to the Municipal Code (Title 15 and Title 3).
Community Development incorporated those comments along with feedback from downtown restaurant operators, the Police Department and Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and presented the proposed amendment to the Planning Commission at a public hearing on November 28, 2018. The Planning Commission voted to continue a decision on this item to February 27, 2019 to allow time for staff to refine several of the proposed regulations and to meet again with the restaurant community. A joint meeting was held by the Police and Community Development Departments on January 30, 2019. This meeting was attended by representatives from 19 downtown restaurant and bar operators.
The Planning Commission will be holding a public hearing on February 27, 2019 in City Council Chambers at 7:00 p.m. to consider the proposed amendments and make a recommendation to the City Council.
