Blackmun Bay News

Summary

At the June 26 Council Meeting, Council gave 1st Reading to the Blackmun Bay and asked that it be taken directly to Public Hearing.  This is a somewhat unusual outcome, given that normally projects of this nature would go to 2nd reading before a Public Hearing (indicating the high interest from the community on this project and desire for the City Council to gather community feedback at the Public Hearing).  The Public Hearing will likely be delayed until after the municipal elections, which will be held on October 20, 2018.  Anybody can speak at the Public Hearing to oppose or support this project.  To learn more about the rationale behind Council's decision and what the Blackmun Bay project will look like, please click on the links below.
