The amendments also included a request to the city council for interim use of the property to generate revenue during site development, however that will be addressed again at a later date.

Mayor Heather Moreno moved to adopt draft resolution A with the changes noted, resolution B as amended by staff for conditions for 100c and 101, including D, and then to also include the language with regards to affordable housing and to remove the CFD but to continue to ensure that there is enforcement of maintaining the property.

Councilman Bourbeau seconded and the motion passed 5-0.
