From the report:
By way of overview, this proposed amendment to the LUPP would involve changing this land use designation from Parks and Open Space to Rural Residential in order to allow development of residential estate lots. Council may want to give consideration to such factors as the City’s ability (or inability) to provide utilities to the area, impact on the City’s watershed (particularly Ada Hayden Lake), impacts on the viewshed from Ada Hayden Memorial Park, and general consistency with the Council’s adopted goals and policies.
