2014.07.14 Council Meeting Item 1


Introduction of an amendment to the Code of Ordinances to change the organizational structure of the Harbor/Waterfront Committee. 

A public comment period will not be included with the item.

ACTION: Schedule public hearing. 


On April 2, 2014, the Harbor/Waterfront Committee met with town staff, Councilors Karen Farber and David Goldberg, and Brent Sullivan to discuss the structure and requirements for membership.
The current Code of Ordinances specifies that Harbor/Waterfront Committee shall consist of seven residents with one representing Handy Boat and one representing Portland Yacht Club. 

The proposed amendment removes the residency restriction for Handy Boat and Portland Yacht Club, adds the representatives as non-voting members and retains the original seven members.
