CITY HALL — The City Council on Tuesday continued its overhaul of the city’s design review process after it voted to reconstitute both Design Review Boards and move their meeting times to the evening.
In voting to change the meeting times for the two Design Review Boards from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. every Thursday, council members said they hoped the move would invite more public participation.
“I think this is a long time coming,” Councilman Frank Quintero said.
The change will take effect Jan. 10 when the two boards resume their regular schedules.
With a four-hour change ahead — and discontent with the performance of some board members still lingering — the majority of the council also voted to reconstitute both boards next month as a way to reinforce upcoming changes to the design review process.
