Reconsideration of zone change from RA to R-2, northeast corner 18th and <br /> Bailey Hill Road (Michael Safley) , <br /> Planning Commission reaffirmed its recommend~tion to deny both zone changes. <br /> Comm <br /> tf'\ Mr. Bradshaw moved seconded by Mrs. Campbell to confirm the Planning COnmUs- 5/24/72 <br /> sion recommendation. Motion carried unanimously. Approve <br /> B. Mall Regulations - A proposed ordinance, copies of which were previously dis- <br /> tributed to Council members, would bett;er deal wi th kinds of acti vi ties and per- <br /> missions in use of the_ downtown mall, and cure some legal insufficiencies' of the <br /> present'ordlnance. Manager said it might be well to refer the ordinance to a <br /> broadly based ad hoc ci tizens commi ttee for recommendations, and thereby avoid <br /> controversy at a public hearing. He explained changes from the present ordinance - <br /> climbing, to control "safety problems; fountain, so that persons may not throw <br /> trash or use other than for wading or observing; fund raising; seeing-eye dogs <br /> will be allowed; different-procedure for granting permits for use of the mall, <br /> and providing appeal from failure to obtain a permit. Manager said if the <br /> Council does, not wish to est,ablish an ad hoc committee, perhaps an administrative <br /> hearing could pe held to at least, give interested persons an opportunity to re- <br /> I act and give some input prior to official Council consideration. With regard to <br /> legal, insufficiency, Manager said the City Attorn?yfeels the present, <;Jrdinance <br /> I is unenforceable since it was adopted on the basis ,of a set of rules, and a <br /> violation of those_rules becomes a violation of the ordinance. <br /> Councilm~n Mohr~ecommended holding,an,ad~nistrative hearing designed to <br /> . eli ci t reasons for the changes in the ordinance, administrati ve _ experien<;:e wi th <br /> the present rules, and answers to questions with debate in a way not possible <br /> at a committee or public hearing. Mrs. Beal suggested people having an interest <br /> in the m{ill regulations should be notified of such hearing to allow ex<?hange of <br /> I views at that time rather than at a public hearing. Manager said there would <br /> be an effort made to gain widespread participation. <br /> Mr. Mohr moved seconded by Mr. Williams that Manager set up an administrative <br /> bearing on the proposed mall regulations ordinance. Motion carried unanimousl.y. <br /> Mrs. Beal asked if the Manager would conduct the hearing with the Council attend- <br /> ing but not acting. Manager said from the staff standpoint it would be helpful <br /> for various departments dealing wit~ mall problems to participate to allow ex- <br /> change 6f their problems and problems of people using the mall. Mayor Anderson Comm <br /> said it should be understood the administrati ve hearing will not precl ude a 5/31/72 <br /> public hearing. Approve <br /> C. Downtown Development District Board - Councilman Mohr distributed to other Council <br /> members a memo containing his thoughts with regard to certain sections of the <br /> proposed ordinance establish~ng a governing board for the Downtown Development <br /> District. He suggests a definition of the Board's purpose to include other than <br /> . financing and administering the: District, especially to include alternate forms <br /> of transportationp and a limitation on the sorts of programs that the revenues <br /> could be used to support. He also,suggested that membership include at least <br /> two Council members and that the additional appointments be made in the same <br /> manner as those for the Eugene Renewal Agency; and that grievances appealed <br /> from Board decisionsb~ directed to the Council rather than to the City Manager. <br /> Mr. Mohr said he would like to see a Council subconmUttee afJpointed to work with <br /> the Downtown Association committee in drafting the ordinance creating the board. <br /> I /p '" 6/15/72 - 1 <br />
