MEETING ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15TH AFTER 4:00 COUNCIL INFORMATIONAL MEETING
CARNEGIE TOWN HALL, Council requesting public input!
A proposed ordinance could affect hundreds of property owners who have landscaping in the boulevard area. Councilman Greg Jamison is putting together an ordinance which will address this issue. Many homeowners and businesses have worked to beatify this strip of land between the curb and the sidewalk. This ordinance could mandate that this landscaping be ripped out.
Areas that may be targeted are: medium to tall grasses, rocks of any kind, large boulders, mailboxes and landscaping by the driveway, corner plantings, fencing and shrubs on either side of the sidewalk, pavers and flowers. Several council members have told me that if this ordinance passes, the city will also be required to remove the rocks, daylilies, grasses and Russian Sage on city property. This would include the area by the downtown-library and the McKennan Park Boulevard.
Please call the men on the Land Use Committee and let them know how you feel about this effort. They are:
Greg Jamison 310-1930
Kermit Staggers 376-4056
Rick Kiley 367-8102
It also would be beneficial if you called the representative for your district and the Mayor. You can get this information from the city clerk’s office 367-8081
There is a Land use committee meeting scheduled for Tuesday, December 15th, after the 4:00 Council informational meeting. Â The meeting will be at the Carnegie Town Hall. Â Watch the Argus for further updates. They have assured me that they will cover this issue.
