Northwest Area Land Use Consultant and Process Advisory Committee discussion



Action Requested:                     

No action requested at this time.


Summary Report:

The Northwest Area Land Use Consultant and Process Advisory Committee has drafted a memorandum outlining the Committee’s work of the past 12 months. Staff presented a brief update to the City Council on the findings of the Committee to-date at the December 11, 2018 Council Meeting.


Staff requests Council members to provide feedback on the Committee findings and process. Staff intends to bring the Committee recommendation forward to the Council on January 22 to take action and approve the Committee’s findings and concluding the work of the Committee.


Included in this report are the following documents:

                     Memorandum of findings

                     Committee Process Recommendation from March 2018

                     Key Points from the Consultant Interview Process


The Committee believes significant information has been collected and alternative processes exist and should be explored. The Committee fully supports an incremental development approach for the Northwest Area subject to the recommendations listed above rather than a large master-planned development.

Alternative Options:



Financial Impacts:                     



Tentative Timelines:                     

January 22 - Potential Action to Approve Committee recommendation and conclude the Committee’s task (but no later than end of the extension term in March)
