Applications’ design worthy of conversation


On Sept. 25, commissioner Abbey Abbey presented the Planning table with a revised two-page CUP application she had worked on. One item she added was a place for a signature indicating the applicant understood the requirements of the CUP.

City Economic Development Coordinator Glenna Booth, the person in city hall who handles these documents, asked for one line at the top of the first page to remain, but Abbey considered the information duplicative so she had removed it. Booth it would make her job easier if the line remained.

Commissioner Tom Buford suggested the tree removal application should include an 11×17 diagram for mapping trees on a property, and he subsequently found a local business that could print copies of that size. He also suggested using different colored ribbons at the site to indicate the status of trees.

There will be further discussion as the applications take shape.
