Mr. Cilimberg summarized the staff report for both requests.

 

Mr. Strucko opened the public hearing and invited public comment. 

 

Ms. Arnold arrived at the meeting and noted that she thought this item was seventh on the agenda.

 

Mr. Cilimberg noted that in fairness to staff there was a change in the final agenda and some of staff thought that their item was going to be later.  They tried to get the quick items done first.

 

There being no public comment, Mr. Strucko closed the public hearing to bring the matter before the Planning Commission.
