TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL
FROM: DIRECTOR OF PLANNING BUILDING AND CODE ENFORCEMENT
DATE: JULY 18, 2006
SUBJECT: PROPOSED VIEW RESTORATION GUIDELINE REVISIONS
Continue the public hearing to August 1, 2006.
Amendments to the City’s View Restoration Guidelines are being made to update the Guidelines to make them consistent with the use of a professional mediator and the fee structure approved by the City Council on November 3, 2004 and February 15, 2005, respectively. As part of the Guideline review, minor clean-up amendments are proposed to clarify the View Restoration Permit process, and an additional proposal to streamline the View Preservation Permit process.
The Planning Commission completed its review of the proposed amendments on May 9, 2006 and forwarded its recommendations to the City Council. The public hearing on this item was duly noticed for the July 18, 2006 meeting. However, at this time Staff is recommending that the public hearing be continued to August 1, 2006 in order to allow Staff more time to consult with the City Attorney and develop an ordinance that would complement the Guidelines to deal with abatement cost recovery.
