The City Place PUD application failed on an 0-10 vote (councilmember Sandi Smith was unable to attend the meeting due to family illness).
This, after neighbors had successfully petitioned to force the PUD proposal to achieve an 8-vote majority (instead of a simple 6-vote majority).
The late-hour petition resulted in a motion by coucilmember Stephen Rapundalo to postpone for two weeks, but that motion was supported only by the two councilmembers seated to Rapundalo’s left – Leigh Greden and Christopher Taylor.
Additional reasons for postponing included a desire to see commitments to affordable housing written into the development agreement.
In the end, the 8-vote requirement was moot.
Details of the deliberations to follow in a Meeting Watch report.
