At the Tuesday, November 28 meeting, the Council supported expanding the police force by 50 additional officers to help patrol the city streets. The Council will finalize the action in an official vote that could be taken on December 5 as part of a budget amendment.
The Council also had discussions on several housing-related topics. They included the proposed Citywide Housing plan and several housing funding proposals from different City departments, which will be brought up for future discussion in coming meetings.
Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) were also discussed. A proposed ordinance would change the City’s ADU regulations. ADUs are small apartments that share a lot with a single-family home. The Council, by a straw polls, supported a proposal to include boundaries instead of allowing ADUs citywide, removed limits to the amount of new ADUs, and suggested the ordinance be reviewed in three-year’s time. More discussion is planned in an upcoming meeting.
