Marion City Council Meeting

Postby peyton » Wed Jul 11, 2012 2:34 pm

Hi All,

Sorry for the short notice but they are having a city council meeting tomorrow and the land swap at Legion is on the board. I am going to speak tomorrow but about how we got to this point not the actual land swap. They are trying to sneak this through by consent vote which means its lumped in with other stuff that is of little or no importance. It starts at 5:30pm and is at the City Hall on 6th Ave in downtown Marion.

Thanks

PS You can't wear hats to the meeting. Formal I guess.

I like how the agenda says no hats and refrain from using tobacco in the Chamber as the first sentence.

Is it time to bring an army of bag wearing disc golfers?

I think this is our item.

19. Motion to receive and file request for waiver of subdivision regulations to allow division of property by Plat of Survey No. 1791 for transfer purposes only for property located east of Armar Drive, south of Marion Boulevard. (City of Marion / Cemar Holdings, LLC c/o Jon Dusek).

Ok so surprise surprise they passed #19 our issue. But never fear we have time. There will be at least 2 more meetings that we have a public forum to tell our side of the story. Everyone please mark your calendars/phones

July 26th city council meeting in which they will set a date

Aug 9th will most likely be the date they set

So we need people to show up in support. I think it would be a good idea for us all to get together and discuss some actions we can take. ie. another petition / getting a polished presentation together.

Here are the things on the agenda I think we need to fight.

https://www.cityofmarion.org/#/mayor-an ... cil-agenda

18. Motion to receive and file and refer to the Planning and Zoning Commission the following:

a. Request to rezone property located east of Armar Drive, south of Marion Boulevard, Marion, Iowa from A-1, Rural Restricted and O-2, to R-3, Two-Family Residential (Jon Dusek, Cemar Holdings LLC).


A-1 = Rural Restricted aka Public Park Land
O-2 = Office parks

This is the proposed land swap area. Hopefully we can get them to reconsider this change.

20. Resolution No. 22598 setting public hearing for August 9, 2012 regarding a Land Exchange Agreement between the City of Marion and Cemar Holdings, LLC.


Not sure what this is going to do but it is not appropriate to vote on 18. A if we haven't even had a public hearing on it yet.

Hope to see some friendly faces at the City council tonight.
