Timing of the Zoning Referendum

City Council Vote Feb. 22nd Meeting

The City Council met on Feb. 22nd to consider the timing of the referendum election challenging the zoning decision of 20 units/acre for the North Commercial area. That decision was delayed by the 3 councilmembers considering the issue (Martinez and Quirk had recused themselves because they live too close to the area) due to a verbal report from Mayor Gaasterland.


She said that conversations with referendum proponent Arnold Wiesel had suggested that the referendum might be withdrawn if the city took a series of actions. The legality and the feasibility of the actions will be reviewed and reported to council on or before March 15th, providing a guide for further negotiations.
