July 20, 2017 DRAC Meeting
DRAC members spent significant time at the meeting discussing an update to the Parks Administrative Rule regarding Residential Alterations and Additions, as well as an update to PBOT’s Transportation Systems Development Charge (TSDC). The DRAC subsequently sent a letter to the City Council and the PBOT Director in support of the TSDC proposal.
