UDC First Reading, Budget Work Session on Roswell Council Agenda

Monday's meetings begin at 5 and 7 p.m. at City Hall.

Public comment is invited on Monday as the Roswell Mayor and Council will get the First Reading of the Ordinance and Map Review of the proposed Unified Development Code

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers, 38 Hill Street. A work session devoted to priority-based budgeting and to set the fiscal year 2015 budget calendar begins at 5 p.m. in Room 220.

A public comment period on the UDC or any other topic will be part of the regular meeting. There is a five-minute maximum per person. 

The meeting concludes a 60-day public review period for the UDC, which would overhaul and streamline most of the city's existing zoning code. 

The proposal to be given the First Reading on Monday reflects changes made or directed by the Mayor and Council at its last work session on the subject on Jan. 6. 

Here's a draft of what will be included at the First Reading; the entire document may be downloaded at that link. 

The UDC effort, which was begun in 2012, is part of the 2030 Comprehensive Plan, which includes revitalizing areas in decline, providing additional housing options and reconciling conflicting rules as means to attracting new development.

The Second Reading for the UDC is Feb. 10, and if it is adopted at that time, the new ordinance would take effect in March. 

Also at the regular meeting, the council will elect a mayor pro tem for 2014 from among the six council members. 

The council also will recognize seven promotions to captain in the Roswell Fire Department. They are Jack Allen, Ty Howard, Jarrett Jenkins, Bill Logan, Rob Rennie (EMS) and Jason Wozniak.

Fire Chief Ricky Spencer also will receive the Liberty Mutual Firemark Award. 

The council also is expected to appoint Eric Clementi to the Design Review Board.
