Robert Arth <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Butterworth, Hage, Helms, Scott, Arth <br />None <br /> <br />Councilman Scott asked that the Minutes of November 20 be changed to <br />include the following: Page 12, R-3 Regulations, where reference is"-' <br />made to the commendation made by Al Coke to members of the staff - <br />that the name of Building Official, Edward Chastain be specifically <br />reflected. Also, Page 2, in order -to c9rrect any misunderstanding <br />where CRA is being discussed and where he, Councilman Scott, made a <br />statement relative to CRA and to the support given at that time to the <br />three Councilman whose terms expire April 1974, where he indicated <br />that it would be his feeling that the support given the three <br />Councilmen indicated ,.. knowing that they had supported CRA ... that <br />the community would feel that support for CRA was reasonable.... He <br />asked the record to show that he was referring to support given at <br />the April 1970 election and not at the election of 1972, Councilman <br />Butterworth commented that perhaps the record should also show that <br />the support of CRA at that time was limited solely to Chicago Park. <br />Councilman Helms then MOVED to approve the Minutes as changed. Motion <br />seconded by Councilman Scott and carried unanimously. <br /> <br />In order to consider CRA Council recessed to meet jointly with the <br />Community Redevelopment Agency. <br /> <br />PRESENT: Members Butterworth, Hage, He~ms, Scott, Arth ABSENT: None <br /> <br />Councilman Butterworth stated in part that for the purpose of making a <br />minority record that he takes the position that the people have not had <br />substantial time to talk about redevelopment - that they do not have <br />any idea which plan Council is going to accept or reject and again they <br />have had no opportunity to talk on what Council is going to do at this <br />meeting. He continued in part that when Council met in August no <br />preference was indicated for one plan or another and it was Council's <br />action at that time to just adjourn the entire proceedings. Now <br />Council has a particular plan on which there has been almost no public <br />expression. That by the same token there has been almost no opportunity <br />to talk on the environmental impact which is part and parcel of this <br />and that he is inclined to believe that with what little review he has <br />made of the law that the EIR is something that has to be submitted for <br />public discussion. He then referred to a communication submitted to <br />Council at this meeting from the legal counsel for a group of citizens <br />asking Council to delay any action.. that if a plan is adopted the <br />group would have no choice but to attempt to referend that plan. In <br />conclusion he indicated he would vote against the plan. <br /> <br />12-18-73 <br /> <br />- 1 - <br />
