Agenda Item Brief: In November of 2013 the City Council directed staff to prepare property conservation amendments to the Sparks Municipal Code to enhance the City’s ability to address some common complaints the City receives. The purpose of this agenda item is to: review a draft of the proposed amendments with the City Council; share the public comments received to date regarding these draft code changes with the Council; and, solicit Council direction regarding the proposed amendments so that staff may prepare a public hearing draft for future Council action.

Background: See attached staff report in PDF format.

Analysis: See attached staff report in PDF format.

Alternatives: The City Council may direct staff to address additional concerns and issues or to halt this code amendment process.

Recommended Motion: I move to direct staff to prepare property conservation code amendments, to reflect the Council's requested changes, for consideration and possible approval at a future City Council meeting.
