Apartments, School Property Added to Tonight's Council Agenda
Council will meet in special meeting at 7 p.m.
City Council will meet in a special meeting tonight to discuss matters related to economic development in the city.
Earlier we reported that the meeting was set for Council to hear a proposal from the Chamber of Commerce for a Visitors and Convention Bureau and to hear about the county’s anti-poaching proposal.
The agenda was amended last week to include a discussion about pending legislation to enact a new zoning district for apartments in the city.
City Planner George Smerigan will present information for a possible restriction on the number of studio units allowed in apartment buildings in this zoning district.
Councilman Martin Horwitz requested the information at the last meeting of Council, adding that he believes tenants in larger apartments tend to be more permanent residents.
Also added to the agenda is a discussion about the Beachwood City Schools’ possible acquisition of a Richmond Road property.
The meeting takes place in Council Chambers in Beachwood's City Hall at 7 p.m. tonight. Watch Beachwood Patch for more information tomorrow.
