Tonight’s meeting is just the first in a series that will feature public hearings and presentations in which OVOV will be discussed.
At the November 16 meeting, a presentation is slated on land use and circulation. The document should reach the City Council by spring 2011.
Missing from the meeting will be a solution to Seventh Day Adventist Church dispute over its schools. First dealt with in July, the church asked to continue the operation of its K-8 elementary and preschool. At the July meeting, neighbors came forward complaining of noise and trash caused by the school’s students.
The church has asked that the Commission continue the item to the November 5 meeting as it spends time working with neighbors and reviewing similar schools in the area.
This will also be newly elected Lisa Eichman’s first meeting as a commissioner. Mayor Pro-tem Marsha McLean appointed Eichman in August.
The meeting begins tonight at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
