Tonight’s West University Place City Council meeting tonight begins at 6:30 p.m in the Municipal Building at 3800 University Blvd.
Before the regular session, there will be a special workshop to discuss the results of a citywide drainage study by HDR Engineering to evaluate the existing storm sewer’s condition and its capacities. The purpose of the report is to identify the parts of the West University Place infrastructure system that meet the basic requirement of a 2-year storm event. It also identified future drainage projects needed to bring the rest of the system up to the two-year storm event criteria.
The city council will also be briefed this evening on its application to join the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Computer Rating System. Included will be a primer on something called Repetitive Loss Area Analysis Resolution which is part of an attempt to get a better Insurance rating for everyone in West U.
Repetitive Loss Area Analysis identifies homes in West University Place that have had two or more claims of more than $1,000 within any 10 year period since 1978. This analysis identified 29 West U properties that met these criteria.
At least once during the term of every West University Place City Council for the past 20 years, there is a discussion about restricting or outlawing leaf blowers. And tonight is this group’s night for that discussion. The City Council charged the Building and Standards Commission with the task of doing analysis about possible restrictions or prohibition on the use of leaf blowers in West University Place. After three meetings, the Building and Standards Commission recommends that no changes be made.
The City Council will also consider technical modifications to the Small Cell Network Facilities Regulations Ordinance. These changes are non-substantive in nature and designed to dovetail our ordinances with state and federal law.
Additionally this evening the City Council will hold a Joint Public Hearing with the Zoning and Planning Commission to consider revisions to the Code of Ordinances. Click here for more information on the public hearing.
