Proposed Amendment to Section 12-12-5 of the LDC – Historic Building Demolition Review has been removed from this evening’s 1/12/17 City Council Agenda by its sponsor, Brian Spencer, City Council President.
In relaying why this agenda item is being removed, Council President Spencer said,
“It is because I am pro-business, pro-growth, and an advocate for responsible redevelopment,
that I have chosen to postpone taking action on this agenda item in its current draft format. I will be seeking input from additional citizens, property owners, and business owners that were unaware of two public workshops previously conducted by the City Planning Board.
“Hopefully, the attendance will be represented by a broad section of stakeholders from the historical preservationist community as well as the development sector. In order to maximize the
opportunity for input, I intend to schedule meetings outside daily business hours.
My ultimate goal is to author a proposal that meets the expectations of the workshop participants and most importantly protects the characteristics that differentiate Pensacola from ‘Any Town, USA’.”
