Agenda Item Brief: Background:
Upon completion of the October 22, 2018 City of Sparks Council meeting, Council Member Abbott requested reconsideration of the direction to the City Attorney’s Office to petition the appropriate court for judicial review and other appropriate legal remedies regarding the Regional Planning Governing Board’s October 11, 2018 denial of the City of Sparks’s proposed amendment to the Regional Plan to relocate the existing regional utility corridor located on the Wildcreek Golf Course property.
The Sparks City Council rules allow a member who votes on the prevailing side of a motion to bring that matter back for reconsideration by the entire body at the next possible Council meeting. Council Member Abbott contacted the City Manager and requested the reconsideration be placed on the agenda of a special meeting on November 9, 2018.
If a reconsideration motion is approved by the Council, the matter is properly agendized for Council to discuss and take action in the General Business section of the November 9, 2018 special meeting agenda as agenda item 9.1.
The Council may either approve or reject the request to reconsider.
I move to approve the request to reconsider the vote on item 9.10 of the October 22, 2018 City Council agenda and hear the item at today’s special meeting.
