Call to Order and Establish Quorum:

            Old Business:


Ms. Joseph asked if there was any old business. 


CPA-2006-03 Willow Glen Resolution of Intent)  (Judy Wiegand)


Ms. Wiegand presented a power point presentation and summarized the proposal.



Mr. Cilimberg noted that this is a resolution of intent, which means that this will officially allow for the amendment to be considered.  The Commission is not deciding tonight that these parcels will or will not change in their designation.  They are deciding that they should all be looked at.  The Commission will have the opportunity to decide specifically what changes they want to make at the time of the amendment to the plan.


Ms. Joseph said that they could assume that all of this language concerning affordable housing would be in the Comprehensive Plan Amendment.


Mr. Cilimberg replied that it would be part of the analysis that they do.  It is part of the amendment consideration. 


Mr. Edgerton asked if tax map 32, parcel 49B would be included in this CPA.  He asked why they would include more parcels than was part of the Willow Glen request.


Ms. Wiegand replied that all of the highlighted parcels would be included.  Staff looked at the reasoning that the Commission gave and feels that 32-49B is basically surrounded by the Willow Glen parcel.  The other parcels total about 6 acres or just slightly more and there would be no reason to leave those as an industrial area because it is such a small area.  It is completely at that point surrounded by residential and the street. 


Mr. Cilimberg reiterated that the Commission is only looking at the change.  If it comes through to the Commission and they decide to keep the parcels residentially, then they can do that.  This is not keeping them industrial.


Motion:  Mr. Zobrist moved, Mr. Morris seconded, to approve the language of the resolution of intent with respect to CPA-2006-03, Willow Glen, including all of the recommended parcels in addition to the Willow Glen property.


The motion was approved by a vote of 5:2.  (Commissioners Joseph and Edgerton voted nay.)


There being no further old business, the meeting moved on to the next item.
