|DEVELOPMENT CODES NEAR COMPLETION|
SALMON DEVELOPMENT CODE STATUS 9-5-12 LMS
Salmon City Planner Dan Maiyo reported to the City Council September 5 that the completely revised Salmon Development Code is nearing completion.
Maiyo said the City Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) will be submitting final comments on the draft document September 11. Their comments will then go back to the consultant. The consultant will meet with the commission at its September 17 meeting and a final draft will be produced.
Maiyo said at that point a joint workshop meeting will be scheduled with the City Council, P&Z and the consultant. A public Open House will then be arranged so residents can review the plan and a public hearing will be scheduled at a later date. After the hearing the P&Z Commission will review the comments received and send its recommendation on the revised Salmon Development Code to the City Council for final approval.
All the steps will be announced prior to the events.
City Clerk Mary Benton has prepared a manual on legally proper procedures based mostly on Idaho Code. The manual will act as a refresher course for veteran council members and give newly arrived members a convenient hand book about procedural basics. She invited the council to study the manual and contribute comments.
The City Council will be revisiting the newly created Special Events Permit Application. The goal is to create an easily understood and more all encompassing application packet to cover all types of event requests.
During the evening’s Roundtable Discussion City Councilman Ken Hill complimented the Main Street businesses that have been performing some storefront ‘face-lifts’ this summer. He said their efforts have improved Main Street.
City Attorney Fred Snook reported on a recent Rotary Club project. He said the club gathered at the intersection of Highway 93 and Courthouse Drive on September 4 and went to work. He said as a result, all the weeds are gone and the area looks a lot better. “It was kind of a fun event and it made the city more attractive.”
The Rotary Club work crew included Mayor Leo Marshall and Councilman Jim Bockelman who arrived armed with a weed eater. Bockelman added, “It really does look good over there.”
The next meeting of the Salmon City Council is set for September 19 beginning at 6PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
