Thursday: The Calm Before The Storm (Of Good Things)

City Council meets tonight at 6:30, in Council Chambers.  There has been a lot of discussion this week on i-neighbors and elsewhere about planned changes to Heritage Road, so the meeting will lead off with that topic.  The Public Works Director will describe the City’s plans, and public comment on that topic will follow.  Council will consider 4 neighborhood matching grant requests.  There will be a public hearing on a plan to establish a metropolitan district on a 25 acre parcel of property on the south side of town.  Council will choose a design alternative for the Hwy 6/19th Street Intersection.  They will also choose between a $33,000 repaving job on Washington Avenue or a “flex space” alternative, which would cost $240,000 more.  They will decide whether a downtown developer must build parking into his design or would be allowed to pay cash instead, so his new tenants could use existing city-owned parking.  For details on any of these issues, see the meeting packet on the city website.  The meeting will be broadcast on cable channel 8 and through the city website.

Foothills Art Center will have a Film Night tomorrow at 5:30.  In keeping with their current exhibit, they’ll be showing the 1952 version of Moulin Rouge, starring Jose Ferrer as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.  The film will be over at 7, so you can go straight from Foothills to Movies and Music in the Park.  This is the final weekend for the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit, so if you haven’t seen it yet, don’t delay any longer!

There’s a lot going on this weekend, starting with the movie in the park on Friday, Farmers Market, the Fine Arts Festival, and Dash at the Splash on Saturday, more Fine Arts Festival and a Symphony concert in the park on Sunday.  To start planning your weekend, check the Golden events calendar.
