<br />Assistant City Attorney Riback outlined the issues before the Council
<br />and clarified the subject matter.

<br />details of the Appeal matter before the Council.
<br />Uche Udemezue, City Engineer, outlined the Appeal issues relating to the
<br />lot-line-adjustment matter.
<br />Staff's recommendation is for the Council to uphold the decision of the
<br />Planning Planning Commission, which denied the Appeals and upheld the
<br />Administrative Decisions made by the Zoning Enforcement Official and the
<br />City Engineer.
<br />Council questions and discussion ensued regarding the MOU and its true
<br />intent as it relates to retail space to be utilized. Questions
<br />regarding access to the project were also asked and answered by staff.
