Call to Order
  Mayor Wallace called the meeting to order at 1:02 a.m. All members of City Council were present. Mayor Wallace announced that Assistant City Manager, James A. "Pete" Peterson, is sitting in for the City Manager as she is currently participating in the City Manager's Design Academy in Dallas, Texas. This event is by invitation only and is all expense paid by the American Architectural Foundation. The Foundation invites select cities to bring urban design challenges to a panel of experts that provide free advice on how to jump start projects to achieve desired goals. Mary is joined by city managers from Charlotte, NC, Fort Collins, CO, Fort Lauderdale, FL, Palo Alto, CA and Tacoma, WA. The Foundation and their experts will be assisting us in looking at how to best capitalize on the tiny home and rehabilitation trends to increase values in older neighborhoods.
