First readings for proposed bills are as follows:
Planning Commission’s recommendation to amend a county code relating to residential development standards for accesses and driveways. The first reading of the proposed draft bill No. 2768 introduced by councilmember Mason Chock says it “creates a new definition for ‘common driveway’ as opposed to a ‘public street’ with less stringent pavement width and improvements standards for common driveways serving less than 20 residential units pursuant to the fire code.”
The council meeting was moved to Thursday because Wednesday is the opening day of the Legislature.
