City Council Motions
You asked for the wording of motions passed by City Council during their work sessions on the proposed development at 19th and Alder.  Here they are:
March 10 Motion (Council Bettman)
• Move to direct the city manager to pursue through the Minor Code Amendment Process, code amendments that would mitigate the following impacts from incompatible infill:
• -excessive building height in R-3 and R-4 zones that are proximal to R-1 zones, to reflect a height transition into the R-1 zone;
• -excessive demand for on-street parking by multi-family development in R-3 and R-4 zones with a substantial number of dwelling units that have three or more bedrooms;
• - include a definition in the code's glossary for "Residential Character," to mean that the use, zoning, or development of land or structures that is residential versus non-residential; as well as the particular nature and character of the current or potential residential use, zoning, or development. (passed 7-0)
March 12 Motion (Council Zelenka)
• I move to direct the City manager to: 1) prepare and send a letter from the City Council asking the Alder Commons developer to work with the SUNA neighbors to make their project more compatible with the surrounding neighborhood; 2) use the area between 18th and 20th and Hilyard and Agate as one of the "test cases" as the ICS works through infill compatibility issues; and 3) have the ICS investigate alternative methods for determining parking requirements, such as people/acre and bedrooms/acre, for new R-4 and R-3 development. (passed 8-0)
Next Meetings
We are confirmed for April 14 and April 28 for Task Team meetings.  Thereafter, please reserve the second Monday of each month from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, as follows:
May 12
June 9
July 14
August 11
September 8
October 13
November 10

Please let me or any Steering Committee member know of any follow up questions you may have.  Thank you!
