North 40 Specific Plan Study Session

The Town Council will conduct a Study Session on October 3, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the Town Council Chambers immediately following the regular business items.  The purpose is for the Council to listen to public testimony and to provide direction on potential amendments to the North 40 Specific Plan that do not require changes to the Town's Housing Element or any additional environmental, economic, or other analysis. These parameters were established by the Town Council on September 27, 2016. The staff report for the Study Session is expected to be published on September 28, 2017.

Video Archive Disruption

Granicus is the Town’s provider for the live stream and video archive of all Town Council and Planning Commission meetings. The company will be migrating these and other services to a more secure data center. This means that access to the video archive will be unavailable from 9:00 p.m. August 25, 2017 until 3:00 a.m. August 26, 2017. We appreciate the public’s patience during this important work.
