The Pasco City Council, in the Regular Meeting of February 3, had a few items for consideration. The highlights:
- The main item for consideration was a resolution for the adoption of the update for the Pasco School District’s Capital Facilities Plan into the City’s Comprehensive Plan, which was approved 5-1 (Councilmember Alvarado was absent). The District’s Capital Facilities Plan serves as the basis for the collection of a school impact fee on new home construction in the City. This impact fee on new home construction, unchanged since 2012, is $4,700 per new home and $4,525 per multi-family unit.
- The City Council also approved changes to the City’s Planned Unit Development regulations. Planned Unit Developments can include a variety of housing types and are often maintained by a homeowner’s association. In addition to the housing types, a benefit of PUDs is that they provide additional community amenities such as open space, parks, and gathering spaces for the homeowners within the development.
- The Council opened and continued a Public Hearing on the formation of a Local Improvement District (LID) for the construction of a new sewer line between Burns and Harris Roads in the Broadmoor Area. The Public Hearing was continued to the March 2 meeting to allow City staff time to gather more information on the alignment and costs of the sewer line on the affected properties in the LID.
