The liaison reported the county plans to oppose legislative
action proposing changes in quorum definitions and a measure that would mandate
the election of TABs in
D. Approval of Agenda Posted, Including Any Deletions or Corrections
F. Discuss place of worship parking requirements.
Nancy Lipski appeared at the request of SVTAB members to update us on issues involving place of worship parking requirements. An interesting and informative discussion focused on recent guidance from the DA suggesting that any changes to the current rules could mandate the removal of existing policies mandating no waivers in such items. She requested inputs on any related issues the TAB may encounter.
G. Discussion and possible action regarding strategies to make it easier for citizens to contact
Town Advisory Board members prior to public meetings.
TAB member Duane Laible asked for this discussion saying he wanted to assure that citizens can easily learn how to reach TAB members as developers and planners know how to do. A suggestion that a single email address available on the Clark County website allowing citizens to communicate with all TAB members simultaneously was rejected following concerns expressed by Member Lee Plotkin. He repeated his belief that such direct communications may violate the OML. Member John Getter reminded him of guidance received earlier that it was OK for TAB to receive information from anyone, but that no member should reply by using the “reply all” function. After further consideration, it was suggested the contact information for the liaison officer be added to the posted agenda. The discussion will continue 4/12.
IV. PUBLIC INPUT – Comments by the General Public and Discussion – No action may be taken
upon a matter raised under this item of the agenda until the matter itself has been included on
the agenda. Public comment will be limited to three (3) minutes.
A citizen attending for a zoning item stated that he would prefer and support the creation of a single email address allowing for direct communication from the public to the TAB.
