Subject: Re: Westminster Canterbury Hearing Deferral Documentation
Yesterday the Council agreed to defer the Westminster item to a special meeting on September 22. A formal vote to that effect will occur next Tuesday and the published agenda for next week will show that it is on for deferral to that date.
The main reason for the requested change in hearing date was to allow this item to be the only Planning Item on the agenda which will create a more manageable meeting. The August 25th agenda contains 28 Planning Items and is scheduled to be a joint City Council and Planning Commission hearing which potentially doubles the time for each item to be heard. A brief excerpt from the City Manager’s letter to City Council is shown below explaining this in more detail. The entire letter can be read by clicking below
