It will be a busy night for the City Council
The Fredericksburg City Council has seven public hearings scheduled tomorrow night. Here’s an agenda for the whole meeting.
- The Eagle Village Hotel will be back on the agenda, this time asking for a change to city incentives with the Economic Development Authority. The change will be so that the developer can qualify for financing through the Virginia Tourism Development Financing program.
- Eagle Village will also be up for second reading to rezone about two acres of land within the Eagle Village shopping center in preparation for a hotel to be built later this year. The special-use permit the developer has requested for parking will be on first reading.
- The zoning changes to downtown, recently discussed at-length by the planning commission, will be up for approval. The changes would expand the downtown commercial district and establish a parking district, among other things.
- There is a resolution to declare March 4, 2012 The Rev. Lawrence A. Davies Day.
- James Watters will be honored as he retires after 26 years of service with the Fredericksburg Fire Department.
- The City Council will get an update (previously requested by Vice-Mayor Mary Katherine Greenlaw) on the Civil War Sesquicentennial plans.
- The council will appoint a new member of the planning commission and a few other boards.
In a work session, at 5:30 p.m., there will be discussion about the Telegraph Hill traffic analysis.
The regular meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in council chambers of City Hall, 715 Princess Anne St.
