At today’s meetings, the Council:
- received a follow-up briefing about an ordinance pertaining to regulation of inland port uses. These changes would bring City code in line with State Code requirements for an inland port. Also, conditional uses under the proposed zoning overlay for this area would require an impact mitigation plan. The Planning Division has suggested development standards for activities involving transporting, unloading, loading, transferring, or temporarily storing natural resources. A second public hearing is scheduled for Nov. 27 and then action is possible on Dec. 4.
- received an update about major projects from the Public Utilities Department. Some of the project updates included development of the Northwest Quadrant, the State prison, the East-West aqueduct, and a water treatment plant rebuild. The Public Utilities staff will continue to provide status updates to the Council on these major projects.

A continued briefing and public hearing are scheduled for November 27, along with possible action.
The Council also:
- was briefed about an ordinance that would amend how permits are issued for individuals who solicit or sell products or services face-to-face.
