Meeting History

May 22, 2017 6:30 PM Media City Council Regular Meeting

The Assistant City Manager stated the Transportation Advisory Board's (TAB's) constitution has been updated to reflect the board's desire to become more of a policy board versus a board that reviews traffic impact analysis. Additionally, the board recommended that their size be reduced from seven to five members and the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) liaison be eliminated. He further added the board no longer needs a liaison as, with all the electronic information readily available on the city's web site, anyone can participate and know what’s going on, at any level. Additionally, TAB wants to focus on policy issues versus the land and development type issues that P&Z primarily deals with. The Assistant City Manager further noted there are currently two vacancies on the board and, if the constitution is adopted, they will look to fill one of those vacancies to create a five member board, as the board currently has four full members not including the P&Z liaison. Councilwoman Reponen expressed her desire that traffic management be considered the first step on TAB.

Mayor McDonald requested public comments. There being no one who wished to be heard, Mayor McDonald closed the public comment period.

A motion was made to approve the Transportation Advisory Board's Constitution and Bylaws as amended; with the further discretion of the Assistant City Manager to amend for spelling, capitalization, punctuation and consistency as he might deem necessary.
