City Council approved the ordinance with only the one change for City exemption and other minor corrections. Marc said that the option for the Environmental Trust Fund would allow developers to buy their way out of any mitigation. Marc said that Cliff was concerned that the fund would be creating a double jeopardy. The ordinance has no option for anything other than on-site mitigation or no development. Paul said the amount of acres that would be available for the fund requirements might not be enough to provide an amount of mitigation funds to make it worth while. Marc asked if the City attorney to report on the fund's legal standing.
