City council starts 2020 budget discussion
The Tea City Council met an hour earlier at their Aug. 19 meeting.
They started early to begin discussions on the 2020 budget. They stopped budget discussion at 7 p.m. to start the rest of the meeting and came back to it at the end of the meeting.
Steve Watson with ISG presented information on what his company can do to create streetscapes. With the rebuilding and widening of 271st Street, he thinks now is a good time to consider adopting a design to make the street an attractive gateway into Tea.
The council held a public hearing for ordinance #268, an ordinance to rezone Serenity Park Addition from agriculture to a planned development district. Kelly Nielson submitted an application to rezone 95.5 acres.
Nielson has been meeting with city staff to come up with a development to create a mixed use and senior living area. He proposed an area for housing for people 55 years old and older that would have an association. Another section would be four-plexus and another would have smaller lots with smaller starter homes. Nielson also included plans for drainage and wetlands.
