Presentation of the city's Tourism Plan to take place early during the meeting

Council members will receive a presentation of a Tourism Plan for the city at the Sept. 18 meeting.

Jon-Paul Bowls, the principal at Destination Management Advisors, will present the plan. He is a consultant with Lookout Company, which has been holding workshops with the Economic Development and Tourism Department and local tourism stakeholders putting together that plan. This is a roadmap of what to do and how to do, along with recommendations for the city and its stakeholders.

Also during the early portion of the meeting, Mayor Brian Hodson will read a proclamation for POW/MIA Recognition Day. Perhaps, he also will explain to the council and the public more information regarding the number of proclamations that will be read and/or removed by the committee selected to determine the number of proclamations per year.

Council members will discuss two resolutions and vote on a second reading to amend Canby's Land Development and Planning ordinance, Title 16, which changes specific language from its first passage back in August regarding residential care facilities and other items.

The resolutions include an Intergovernmental Agreement between Canby and Clackamas County related to road maintenance and permitting authority of a portion of South Ivy St. between 13th Avenue and the southerly Urban Growth Boundary. The second resolution adopts Canby's addendum to the Clackamas County Multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan.

Under new business, council members will vote on the findings, conclusions and final order of TA 19-02. They also will hold a Metro Transportation Bond Discussion, see the Parks & Recreation Advisory Board's annual presentation as well as a Canby housing needs analysis.

Additionally, they will declare a vacancy on the Canby Public Library Board. There are also vacancies on the city budget and the transit advisory committees

Citizens with input can speak early and/or late on the agenda and there may be an executive session to discuss specific litigation.
