January City Council meeting on Thursday, January 9th at 7pm

Dear active PBG residents:

The January Palm Beach Gardens City Council meeting will be held on Thursday, January 9th at 7pm at City Hall.

Early in the agenda will be several presentations that should be of interest to residents – covering a financial condition assessment of the City, a 2013 investment update, a report on the economic impacts of the Honda Classic and a description of the 2014 Legislative Priorities by the City’s lobbyist to Tallahassee, Ballard Partners.

The Stadium is not on the agenda, but residents may speak on it during public comment.  It was suggested in an article in the Palm Beach Post that Councilman Russo might bring up the proposed location for a vote – but more recent articles suggest otherwise.

Ordinance 19, 2013 is back on the agenda.  You might recall that several residents questioned whether it was appropriately noticed last month and pointed out that the ordinance referenced a non-existent paragraph in the City’s land development regulations.

Also on the Agenda:

  • Ordinance 1, 2014 is “An amendment to the Fiscal Year 2013/14 budget to adjust fund balance carryovers to actual amounts and to carry forward amounts committed from the FY 2012/2013 budget for outstanding purchase orders and open projects that cross fiscal years.”
  •  Ordinance 4, 2014 and associated Resolutions 6, 2014 and 7, 2014, related to amendments to the Gables Planned Community (PCD), which is located on the west side of Jog Road, south of Northlake Blvd and north of the Beeline Highway.  The ordinance also discussed an assisted living facility to be located on the property.
  •  Resolution 5, 2014 is “a request for a Planned Unit Development (PUD) Amendment affecting 16 parcels of land within Bent Tree PUD to reduce the rear building setback from 65 feet to 55 feet. Bent Tree PUD is approximately 56 acres in size and located on the east side of Central Boulevard, approximately 0.3 miles north of PGA Boulevard.”
  •  Resolution 3, 2014 pertains to the use of Art in Public Places funding for St. Marks Episcopal Church and School expansion related to stain glass windows.

For those who make it to the end of the meeting… it was suggested by resident Steve Tarr, at last month’s meeting, that the Council consider Broadcasting City Council Meetings.  The topic is on the agenda under items for City Council Action/Discussion.

The short form of the agenda can be found here and the full agenda/long form here.

We get the government we deserve – and it’s up to us to watch what they do.  Hope to see you there.
