One of the first <br />actions the committee has taken on is to review how the Imagine Roseville 2025 initiative pertains to the Comp <br />Plan. 60% of the IR 2025 matrix strategies and goals are not being considered for inclusion in the <br />Comprehensive Plan as it currently is formatted. It has been recommended by the Committee that a <br />Community Vision chapter be added to the Comp Plan so as to include these strategies and goals and not lose <br />this valuable community input. <br /> <br />The main objective of the committee appears to be to drastically reduce the physical size of the Comp Plan. <br />Initially, all visioning items that are not related to land use have been removed from the Comp Plan. Willmus <br />has requested that many of the parks and recreation items referenced in the IR 2025 goals and strategies that <br />have been removed from the Comp Plan be added back in. This request is being considered by the committee. <br /> <br /> DIRECTOR’S REPORT <br />5. <br /> <br />Reminder of the Ethics Training session scheduled for Monday Evening, December 10, 6-10pm. <br />o <br /> <br />Legislative Session Update. <br />o <br /> <br />Tom Hanson, the State Finance Director toured the Skating Center Complex on November 9 <br />o <br /> <br />House Capital Investment Committee toured the Skating Center on November 13 <br />o <br /> <br />Senate Capital Investment Committee will be touring the Skating Center on December 13. <br />o <br /> <br />Questions have been raised as to whether some of the requested items are bondable.
