Council approved the following consent items:
Inclusionary Housing Ordinance
During Council’s review and discussion of the recently approved Conditional Use Permit for 532 and 538 East College Avenue on December 21, there was some discussion on the current Zoning Code requirements for the affordable units to be mixed with the market-rate units. At the January 11 meeting, Council referred the specific section of the State College Zoning Code that prohibits inclusionary housing units from being segregated from market-rate units to the Planning Commission for review and recommendation by March 1, 2016.
Council referred a narrow request for review by the Planning Commission because any broader review and discussion of the inclusionary housing requirements contained in the Zoning Code will be taken up as part of the comprehensive Zoning Code review and rewrite.
COG Alternate Delegate
Council voted to reaffirm its policy on identifying COG alternate delegates. The policy states, ”Any State College Borough staff member or Council member, in attendance at a COG standing committee meeting, who is attending in lieu of the representative designated to attend and has been appointed by that representative, has the power to vote on behalf of State College Borough Council.”
Mr. Daubert announced the following COG Committee Appointments:
During staff and committee reports, Council received the Conflict of Interest Policy and Code of Conduct with regard to HUD Programs. The Borough Manager also provided Council with information about expediting a series of parking projects through the borrowing funds in the near future. A comprehensive report will be provided to Council in advance of the February 1 meeting. Council will be asked for approval on February 8.
