The council will review reports about the 2021 operations and activities of the police and fire departments.

After a public hearing, the council will consider abandoning nearly a half-acre of right-of-way at the southeast corner of the Turkey Creek Road-HSC Parkway intersection to allow development.

3. HSC Parkway Rezoning

After a public hearing, the council will consider a request to change the zoning for about 21 acres at 8765 HSC Parkway between Biomedical Way and State Highway 47. The change to a new Planned Development District would be an initial step for a mixed-use destination next to the BioCorridor. Area 1 on the north side would have a base zoning of Multi-Family, while Area 2 on the south side would have a base of General Commercial.

4. Board, Committee Appointments

The council will make appointments to serve on local boards, commissions, and committees.

5. Disaster Declaration Renewal

The council will consider consenting to the mayor’s extension of his COVID-19 disaster declaration to allow the city to continue receiving emergency pandemic-related funding.
