Hello Neighbors,

 Legislation of Interest


  • Bosque Construction R-15-171 (Benton) establishes procedures for expending funds and implementing future projects in the Bosque.  This bill will be on the agenda at Monday’s (April 20) City Council meeting.  Councilor Ken Sanchez is co-sponsoring a floor substitute with me.
  • Bikeways and Trails Plan R-14-142 (Benton, by request) will also be on the agenda for the April 20 City Council meeting.
  • Secondary Dwelling Units O-14-20 (Benton) was moved out of the Land Use Planning & Zoning (LUPZ) Committee.  It is on the April 20 agenda. O-14-20 amends the Zoning Code to add a definition and regulations for secondary dwelling units.  The proposed amendment would make secondary dwelling units a conditional use in the R-1 and RO-1 zones and a permissive use in the R-G and R-2 zones.  It also establishes design, size, parking, and occupancy regulations for secondary dwelling units.
