The December 13th meeting was another long one. I think I got home at 1:15AM. Here are some of my notes from that meeting:

  • CBDG Awards – Awarded several worthy causes to help derver meals to people in their homes, operate food banks, serve blind and deaf citizens, etc.
  • Liquor tastings – We are considering allowing 104 tastings per liqour store per year instead of 50. I think this is a good idea and will keep our businesses competitive.
  • South Chester at County Line turn lane – The council approved the use of eminent domain to complete a turn lane on Chester. The only property that would be affected is the Bank of the West. It is hopeful that an agreement can be worked out with Bank of the West to acquire the property with minimal impact to them. In the end, I think access to the bank may be improved if the traffic doesn't block their driveway after the turn lane is completed.
  • Master Development Plan for Peakview Place – The council approved a plan that could result in Centennial's tallest building at 25 stories. It would be located just west of the Comfort Dental Amphitheater. The architecture and layout of the site is top notch and I can't wait to see it built.
