Unknown Speaker 3:31
Really a question
Speaker 1 3:41
my report which is on the AST console to add words to screen 23 Dash ordinating one through 20.3496 were a motion
Speaker 1 4:08
that we added to our trailer lead to citizens comments. Any lead any information or questions about our legislation tonight. We have five minutes for anyone who wants to speak excuse your name and address
Speaker 3 4:37
up to about 2023 of 76 masterplan on LinkedIn work so just the highlights. What I understand is page 57 CHAPTER THREE land beams. And I’m looking at the third paragraph down in addition and civic should explore opportunities to expand the Headwaters Trail through the city and potentially link it to the Cleveland metro parks. Emerald Necklace reporting park district area in the city of Baltimore. My only question is is there’s no diary on this. I’d like to get more information on the Headwaters Trail. We could probably get that from Parks and Rec but I’d like to know what you were just go to the record on this. And then the second one is on I believe it’s page 64 Title 2022 Magic land Chapter Three plan being under that it has a lovely
Unknown Speaker 5:46
grant use categories.
Speaker 3 5:50
And these categories some of them are familiar or some of them are not made the way they currently are in the city charter and I know that the master plan, isn’t it and I guess my question is, are we looking to change things to fit these 11 themes that are in the master plans? I know you do. Use this as a guide. So I think it’s page 64 I’m not sure what the top of the page says 2022 Chapter Two plan and it has a lot of categories and it has a map 19 on it future land use and then they go into detail on what each is try. And also the pages and the details what each one is supposed to be. And that’s what terminology does come into where the r1 and the honor to those kind of zoning districts which are familiar with what the city has. So my question was, is these planning themes? How are they if this is adopted as it is? Is this something that’s going to come down the pike these 11 themes? Thank you.
Unknown Speaker 7:12
Anyone else? Yes, sir. Second microphone. medicals.
Unknown Speaker 7:23
Very cat 15861 filesizes
Speaker 4 7:25
PIO, I presented to
Unknown Speaker 7:31
Speaker 4 7:33
Notice hardship and for changes in zoning, a lot of articles. Maybe this
Unknown Speaker 7:43
address that you’re seeing
Unknown Speaker 7:48
right now you see the after at the end. Sorry about that.
Unknown Speaker 7:57
Speaker 2 8:00
Thank you very much. Mr. President. The Headwaters Trail is a trail outside of it runs I think from here to somewhere in Mandalay. And currently the portage parks is hoping to acquire land so extend that trail to Chamberlain road. Where auroras recreational easement in the railroad fighter 20s is and where we’re designing a trail right now. Chandeliers in our township. That’s where our recreational easement begins. We’re looking to design the trail to route 82 Currently, meanwhile, Solon is trying to acquire some of the railroad right of way from Solon into Aurora to treat roe. We are working with them to do that. Also for the purpose of eventually connecting the trail from the Headwaters Trail through the railroad right away, maybe not through all the railroad right away. We may have some divergences before we get to solve them. But anyway, that’s what we’re talking about. And that’s what they’re referring to with respect to the future land use, this is all just, these are guides. These are all guides, it’s suggestions is what might be appropriate for future consideration. We’re undergoing right now. For them to undergo zoning, review or resign calls. And there may be some changes some of which are suggested in this document once Council approves it. Is June still would you like to add to that?
Speaker 3 10:13
List? Yes, Mr. Chairman to the council members. The discussion on those categories is land use. When you look at the r one r two which is considered under the rural the r one r two R zoning districts that is completely separate from what land use categories are that’s, I think maybe where the confusion lies that the two different topics.
Unknown Speaker 10:47
Thank you very much. Anyone else?
Speaker 5 10:57
Because, yes, I just want to make a comment about the master plan. 76. I don’t have any recommendations are changes and this is going to get to that later on, like I’ve said on console long enough to sit through these master plans. And as was pointed out by the mayor and I mentioned that last time. These are just guidelines. It’s not a definitely thing. That has to follow. But I will say this that of all the master plans that have gone into effect and I’ve been able to be part of this administration under Mayor Benjamin has probably use the guide as a guide for her administration. And trying to implement some of the recommendations and not being mandated to do all those issues. Significant job as follows. guidelines set forth for or to measure their work with progress reports. Thank you.
Speaker 1 12:02
And I’ll scroll down Mr. Console strives to gather together the same thing just to guide me and mayor’s done one for the job. Some guidelines. Others we have we look forward to to the guidelines.
