The Ordinance amendment would require the Planning Commission <br /> to hold a public hearing on these same matters. <br /> Mr. Teague stated the City Council would continue to hold public hearings, however, the <br /> scope and extent of those public hearings could be determined at the discretion of the City <br /> Council at the time of the hearing. He said holding hearings at the Planning Commission <br /> would allow public input at an earlier time. <br /> The Council asked staff questions about the proposed amendment including whether <br /> holding hearings at the Planning Commission would replace the Council's hearing process, <br /> verifying that approval of the amendment would initiate an additional level of hearings, and <br /> provided comments on the expansion of due process. Staff assured the Council that holding <br /> Planning Commission hearings would not preclude the hearings currently held by the City <br /> Council. <br /> No one appeared for public comment <br /> Page 1 <br />
