RLH VO 19-4 4/6/2019 3:04 PMCandidate Sharon Anderson Against Tracking all Records re http://sharons-quitam.blogspot.com tys to Trash Lawsuit Petition to Block City's Penalty Power Charter Amendment We have started to collect signatures to allow our residents to vote on Ordinance 19-18, a new ordinance that the City Council is in the process of enacting. You may recall that this ordinance was first proposed by the City Council last November as Resolution 18-1962. If enacted, Ord 19-18 would give the City Council broad powers to establish and enforce penalties for violations of ordinances via an amendment to our City Charter. Due to concerns that such a broad penalty power could be abused, we have begun to collect signatures in support of a new petition for referendum seeking to place this ordinance on the citywide election ballot, and thereby allow our citizens to decide whether or not this increased penalty power should become law. This petition for a referendum on a city charter amendment is governed by Minn. Stat 410.12, Subd. 7, req

RES 19-433 3/15/2019 1:11 PMEdward Davis For Personally, I do not agree with the local government getting involved in setting minimum wage standards as the state and federal level of governance creates less negative externalities due to higher mobility costs. Yet, the council decided to get involved. This study will help prove or disprove these negative externalities. It should last at least 5 years with annual reports.
Ord 19-12 3/15/2019 6:24 AMEric Lein Against For "mixed uses" (commercial/residential), the Saint Paul zoning code's minimum front yard setbacks are: BC = 25-feet; T2 = 0-feet. Today's existing front yard setback at 770 Grand aligns with its two easterly neighbors, is attractive, and is very much in keeping with Grand Avenue's historic character. Owners of 770 Grand should NOT be allowed to fill that parcel's front yard with new construction. If zoning at 770 Grand is changed from BC to T2, all future owners of that property will have been granted very strong incentives to eliminate the front yard by adding unattractive and inappropriate new construction. [e.g., 814 Grand -- see google streetview link: https://goo.gl/maps/gCGiL1u5NHk ] As a lifetime resident of St. Paul's Summit Hill and Ramsey Hill neighborhoods, and as the owner of four apartment buildings on Grand Ave. near Milton St., I sincerely hope that you will DENY THIS REZONING REQUEST.
