Steve Brandt, the City Planner, presented on the General Plan Amendment No. 2021-01 and the Zoning Map 2021-01. He stated that in the general plan, the area was designated for a little league field. Since then, the proposal is to create office spaces on the land. “There are currently no proposed plans, which would require the use of the Site Plan Review.
