Town Council to hold joint hearing Tuesday

In addition to holding a public hearing on its 2009-10 fiscal year budget, Pulaski Town Council Tuesday night also will hold a joint hearing with town planners on a request to allow light manufacturing in a portion of Pulaski Mall.
According to a summary of agenda items for the meeting, RAS properties and owner Robert Strenz are seeking a special exception to allow light manufacturing in a portion of the unit that originally was occupied by Heck’s Department Store.
In the summary, Pulaski Town Manager John Hawley notes that the area in question has been used for light manufacturing by two prior industries, which also had to obtain conditional use permits under the zoning ordinance.
There is no mention as to what kind of manufacturing would be located in the unit. However, Hawley does note that it will be required to comply with all fire codes before operation can commence.
Following the public hearing members of Pulaski Planning Commission will vote on whether to recommend approval or denial of the request. Town council will then decide whether to accept the planning commission’s recommendation.
Tuesday’s meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in council chambers on the second floor of the town Municipal Building on First Street.
Council also will hold a hearing to receive public comments on its budget for the upcoming fiscal year, as well as its five year Capital Improvements Plan (CIP). Although comments will be received, the budget will not be adopted until the June 16 meeting. Due to an advertising error, another public hearing will have to be held on the CIP before it can be adopted.
A third public hearing slated for Tuesday will seek public comments on the impact of the upcoming Dora Highway Neighborhood Revitalization Project on the town’s Flood Plain. Hawley points out in the summary that the hearing is a requirement of the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) grant because “a very small part of the project area is in the 100-year flood plain.
“This hearing is to allow the public to discuss alternatives to the project, any perception of possible adverse impacts from the project and possible minimization measures,” the summary states.
Other items on the agenda include:
• Recognition of the June 2009 Employee of the Month.
• A public comment period, including comments by the pastor of Pulaski Church of God.
• Updates on the town’s sewer odor study and water meter replacements.
• Several other policy and plan requirements for the Dora Highway project, such as a Local Business And Employment Plan, Non-Discrimination Policy, Residential Anti-Displacement and Relocation Assistance Plan, and Fair Housing Certification.
• Further discussion of grade changes for town employees.
• Updates on a potential property donation to the town and the status of an agreement for the Brockmeyer train set.
• Consideration and possible passage of an ordinance waiving license fees for personal vehicles of public safety personnel living within town limits.
• Revisions to the Loving Field lease for Whitman Farms.
