IV.             Training for Historic District Commission conducted by City Attorney and Planning Staff

Richard Werbiskis, Assistant Director of Planning and Zoning for the City of League City, commented that the training should be moved to the next meeting because 50 percent of the board members are absent and a special meeting should be scheduled for ordinance review. 

Mr. Grooms asked if any dates had been set and Mr. Werbiskis answered no.

Mr. Grooms commented that the special meeting will be scheduled sometime between the current October 15, 2015 meeting and the November 19, 2015 meeting. Mr. Grooms also stated that today’s meeting will be a review of the current ordinances, while the special meeting will be a discussion of the commissioners and City staff’s opinions and suggestions for revising the ordinances.

Mr. Doan suggested that the training that pertains to the current ordinances be moved to the next meeting and the special meeting be scheduled a week or two after the training, so that City staff and commissioners will have time to thoroughly review each ordinance before making revisions.

Mr. Hake asked City staff if they would be ready for next Thursday. Mr. Grooms stated that City staff would be ready.

Mr. Hake asked the commissioners for their opinions about having to return next week for another meeting.

Mr. Walding asked about the plausibility of getting the entire commission together for a meeting on the following Thursday, and Mr. Werbiskis responded that City staff would call each of the individual commissioners, and review their availability and commitment to attending the meeting.

Mr. Walding asked if the training had to be next week or could it be part of the next scheduled meeting. Mr. Werbiskis responded that the training could be scheduled for the next meeting, but the next scheduled meeting was not until November 19th. Mr. Hake commented that sooner would be better than later.

Mr. Calkins commented that he would not be available for the next three weeks. Mr. Grooms stated that he would contact each of the commissioners and determine which date would work best for each commissioner.

V.                Commissioner Comments

Mr. Hake asked for an update on All-About-Plumbing. Mr. Grooms stated that City staff was working with them, and that a survey had been submitted for the asphalt laying and will be on the November agenda.

Mr. Calkins asked if All-About-Plumbing would be able to offer a new proposal on the November agenda. Mr. Grooms stated yes.

VI.             Staff Comments

            Mr. Grooms commented that there would be a rezoning case that will take place in the Historic
    District, at 714 2nd Street, from RSF-7 to Neighborhood Commercial.

            Mr. Calkins asked what was located at the given address. Mr. Grooms stated that the property was previously  a hair salon, is located near the Baptist church, and the proposal is for a tea room.

Mr. Hake commented that Neighborhood Commercial would allow it to be anything. Mr. Grooms
stated that NRC does limit it to what would be permissible in the Historic District.

           Ms. Dudney asked what the proposed property was. Mr. Grooms stated that it was a tea-room, café/
   restaurant style, with limited hours. 

           Ms. Dudney asked if there was another tea room in League City. Mr. Grooms stated there were
   possibly four.
