The Flagstaff City Council met Tuesday evening to hear the updated public safety development plan and vote on an amendment to the Lake Mary Road zoning code. Council reviewed the draft Land Use Assumptions, Infrastructure Improvements Plan, and Development Fee Report, which includes a proposed development fee that would be applied to improvements in infrastructure and general improvement. The fee must be applied to development and would not be used for repair or maintenance. The item will return to council at a later date. A proposed amendment to the Lake Mary Road and I-40 zoning was also discussed. The plan would change the designation of approximately one-and-a-half acres from rural to urban floodplain, meaning portions of the road and surrounding land would be considered an urbanized area. Council came to a tie, but the motion was moved forward. The council also unanimously approved the ordinance, for the final time, with Nestle Purina on odor mitigation in return for a property tax break.
