Having missed a week’s worth of local goings-on and gossip, I can’t provide much up-to-the-minute commentary, but here are some notable things happening this week:

A2 City Council (18 July):

> Approved OxBridge and NoBuPa residential parking districts by 9-1 vote. See A2News’ City OKs parking limits in campus-area district (19 July) and prior ArborUpdate discussion (24 May).
> Appointed Councilmembers Greden, Easthope, and Teall to investigate design and financing of a $41m expansion to City Hall . A2News: City may stick with city hall plans (19 July).

A2 Parks Advisory Commission (19 July):

Public hearing 4 pm today in Council Chambers on the draft 2006-2011 Parks and Recreation Open Space Plan. Written comments on the draft Plan will also be taken until August 15.

A2 City Planning Commission (19 July):

Regular Meeting 7pm tonight – agenda is not yet online, but includes the item “f. Commission Discussion of Resolution regarding Council Action on City-Owned Properties,” which apparently is a resolution asking Council not to take action on the DDA’s Three/Two-Site plan until after the Calthorpe study. (Currently, the discussion of directing the DDA to back off to two sites is intended to come before Council at their 1 August meeting.)
