P&Z Meeting Cancelled / Workshop Tomorrow [UPDATE]

It was just announced that the Belle Isle Planning & Zoning Board meeting scheduled for tonight has been cancelled. The City's announcement regarding this cancellation states as follows:
Based upon concerns expressed by Council at the last meeting, special counsel Tom Callan recommends, and City Attorney Kruppenbacher concurs, that the full composition of the Planning and Zoning Board should be ratified at the next City Council meeting along with the consideration of the appointment of the two new members to fill the vacancies, consistent with the provisions of Sec. 42-32 of the City Code.  
Therefore, the P&Z Meeting scheduled for tonight April 28, 2015 at 6:30pm is being rescheduled once the Board has been confirmed by City Council the meeting will duly posted. 
Please go ahead and mark your calendars for the next P&Z session, presently scheduled for Tuesday, May 26 at 6:30 p.m. The variance requests previously scheduled for tonight's meeting will likely be addressed at that time.

In the meantime, there is a City Council workshop meeting scheduled for this Wednesday, April 29 at 9:00 a.m. This workshop has been announced as a special (voting) meeting to allow confirmation of the new P&Z board members, meaning that residents will have an opportunity to address the City Council with any comments. Following tomorrow's workshop, the next regular City Council meeting is scheduled for next Tuesday, May 5 at 6:00 p.m.

UPDATE 4/29/15:

While the P&Z confirmation process was discussed at the workshop meeting, the new nominees will not be confirmed until the next regular meeting on May 5. Instead, this special meeting was called for the second reading of an ordinance designed to keep any new Belle Isle gas stations or convenience stores from being built within an unsafe distance of a residence.
