The Salida City Council (SCC) will hold a regular meeting tonight, Tuesday, August 15, in Council Chambers at the Touber Building, 448 E. First Street. On the agenda is a public hearing for the amendment of the City’s Comprehensive Plan and the Future Land Use Map (FLUM).
This action has been continued from both the July 18 and August 1 meetings. The reason? Both the SCC and members of the public have questioned the Planning Commission’s recommendations to reduce density zoning levels in certain areas of the city.
Also on the agenda is a presentation by City Attorney Geoff Wilson, of consideration of Ordinance 2023-12, intended to repeal and replace Ordinance 2022-24, regarding imposition and increase of certain occupation taxes on Short-Term Rentals.
Another important agenda item is Resolution 2023-26, which would put a citizen’s initiative on the November 7 ballot. The citizen’s initiative is a proposition “to impose an amended occupational tax on short-term rentals (STRs).” If passed, the proposed tax will be used to help combat the affordable housing issue in Salida by being placed in the City’s housing fund.
