City Council meeting minutes of August 4 2008


A Resolution of the City Council of the City of Lakewood, Washington, setting a public fact finding hearing on Monday, August 18, 2008, regarding the interim zoning controls commenced through Ordinance No. 472

WHEREAS, on March 17, 2008, the City of Lakewood City Council passed Ordinance No. 472, establishing a system of Interim Zoning Controls upon Eating and Drinking Establishments; and,

WHEREAS, an interim zoning Ordinance, such as Ordinance No. 472, is specifically authorized under RCW sections 35A.63.220 and 36.70A.390; and,

WHEREAS, because Ordinance No. 472 was adopted without a public hearing, a subsequent public hearing was held on April 21, 2008, and findings of fact supporting the interim system of zoning controls were stated in Resolution No. 2008-13; and,

WHEREAS, in order to extend the interim controls stated in Ordinance No. 472 for an additional six-month period, an additional public hearing must be held and findings of fact must be made to support such an extension; and,

WHEREAS, the City Council does determine that it is appropriate to set a public hearing for the purpose of considering whether these interim controls should be extended or allowed to expire.



Section 1. Public Hearing Set. That a public hearing shall be held regarding Ordinance No. 472, and this hearing is hereby set for Monday, August 18, 2008, at 7:00 p.m. in the City of Lakewood City Council Chambers.

Section 2. Purpose of Public Hearing. The public hearing will be held for the purpose of determining whether facts exist that would allow an extension of interim controls created through Ordinance No. 472 for an additional six-month period.

Section 3. Severability. If any sections, sentence, clause or phrase of this Resolution shall be held to be invalid or unconstitutional by a court of competent jurisdiction, or its application held inapplicable to any person, property or circumstance, such invalidity or unconstitutionality or inapplicability shall not effect the validity or constitutionality of any other section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Resolution or its application to any other person, property or circumstance.

Section 4. This Resolution shall be in full force and effect upon passage and signatures hereon.

PASSED by the City Council this 4th day of August, 2008.
