City Manager Adam Lenhard noted the changes are significant.  Staff has been working on Title 10; it will look at storage units.  Due to the time spent on the revisions, staff recommends the proposed amendments be denied.  Rather, they suggest proceeding with the amendments previously discussed with the Council.

 

The applicant’s representative William Allen explained the proposed changes are minimal.  They have been working with staff and have incorporated almost all of the language they have proposed.  They are willing to accept all of the changes that staff has been working on, except for the word “isolated”.  That term makes it hard to plan for.     

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman noted staff can consider defining isolated; however, that is not a small change.  He explained why there was a temporary ordinance in place regarding storage units after which he suggested waiting for the future Title 10 amendments.

 

A discussion took place regarding the word isolated. 

 

City Attorney Shawn Guzman stated that staff is close to bringing Title 10 in for the Council’s review.
