Planning Commission:

Sara Bradbury reported that Devin Rios is moving and Shyann Alvey has resigned so there are 2 open seats on the planning commission. The mayor instructed the planning commission that he wants a simple plan for the ordinances and would like to have it approved in the next few months. The council discussed having the goal of 6 months for approval of the ordinances instead of the planning commissions time line of one year for approval. Sara commented that the planning commission is dedicated to revising the town ordinances but if the council pushes too much, they may lose more planning commission members. Discussed to allow the council access to the draft document that the commission is revising and they can make comments to the draft, changes or items that they want removed. This will speed up the approval process.
