Tonight's City Council Preview

Restrictions on selling your car, and more low-income housing are on the agenda this evening.

A low-income senior housing project and a possible ban on cars with “for sale” signs will be two of the many items to be discussed at tonight’s City Council meeting.

The City Council will mull an affordable housing agreement with TRG Pacific Development, LLC on the development of the 95-unit The Alexander on 345 East Commonwealth Avenue, which may cost the City between $9 million and $9.2 million. The payments would go towards the development of the proposed affordable housing project and professional services.

Besides deciding on an affordable housing agreement, the City Council will also decide on a proposed ban on cars parked with “for sale” signs on frontage roads close to Orangethorpe Avenue. In his memo to the City Council, Director of Public Works Donald K. Hoppe said that the proposal stemmed from resident complaints that cars with “for sale” signs resulted in additional traffic and parking problems in the neighborhood.

The meeting will take place at City Hall at 6:30 p.m.
