Impact fees and ordinances on April 15 City Council agenda

The Newcastle City Council will hold its second meeting of the month April 15.
Prior to the regular meeting, the council will hold a study session about traffic and parks impact fees.
Impact fees are a comprehensive grouping of charges based on new development within a local municipality. These fees are assessed to pay for capital facility improvement projects necessitated by new development.
The study session is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. and go until the general meeting begins at 7 p.m.
During what appears to be a rather light regular meeting, the council will hear a report about the Lake Boren water quality and review two ordinances.
The council will discuss a proposed ordinance amending the city’s zoning code to formalize the current interpretation of significant tree retention and replacement requirements and the system used to administer requirements.
They’ll review another ordinance updating regulations for the use of development agreements.
Since they are ordinances, public hearings will be held for both.
