Canby Council agenda to look at traffic code and library survey
Canby Council members will be voting on a number of resolutions, ordinances and whether to cancel the meeting the night before Thanksgiving on the night after Election Day.
Among the topics is the results from the month-long library community survey as well as the reappointment of John Savory to the Planning Commission. The former president of SW Office Supply has been a commission member for eight or nine years. His city interests include growth, traffic and keeping Canby livable and he feels not enough thought is being given to hitches caused by rapid growth.
Public Works Director Jennifer Cline offers a memo asking for a code amendment allowing Public Works to put up signs that permit or restrict trucks or commercial vehicles on roads. This would allow Traffic Safety Committee members and concerned citizens to restrict commercial vehicles or truck traffic on Southeast 13th Avenue from South Ivy to Sequoia Parkway enforcing safety concerns for the adjacent elementary school and neighboring homes.
The Library Board currently has five members appointed by the City Council, three who must be Canby residents. Currently all five are residents. The Board proposes an amendment to add two additional voting positions for residents from unincorporated areas and a third non-voting member from Canby High School to reach a broader segment of the community.
No public meeting is scheduled. In fact, new business includes a vote to cancel the Nov. 21 meeting.
