Recommendation and Proposed Motion

Recommendation: I move to reconsider the Council's adoption of the comprehensive City of Reno Master Plan at the December 13, 2017 Council Meeting.

 

Proposed Motion:  I move to approve staff recommendation.

Staff Report Formal Body

Summary: Councilmember Paul McKenzie has requested that the City Council’s vote to adopt a new City of Reno Master Plan at the December 13, 2017, City Council meeting be reconsidered.  This agenda item will provide the City Council with the option to have the master plan adoption reconsidered at a future City Council meeting.

 

Previous Council Action:  At the December 13, 2017, City Council meeting, under Item F.2, the City Council voted unanimously to adopt a new comprehensive City of Reno Master Plan consistent with Nevada Revised Statues (NRS) 278.150 to 278.240 and repeal the existing City of Reno Master Plan. 

 

Discussion:  Pursuant to Reno City Charter and the Rules of the Reno City Council an affirmative City Council vote may be reconsidered.  According to Section 7.7.5 of the newly adopted Rules of the Reno City Council, effective January 1, 2018, there are certain requirements for a reconsideration motion which are satisfied for this request.  Section 7.7.5 requires the following:

 

A motion to reconsider the passage of a main motion may be made on the day the action was taken, at a continued meeting, or at the next scheduled regular meeting of city council provided that such item is properly noticed for action on such future agenda.  In the event a member of city council desires that a matter be reconsidered at the next regularly scheduled meeting, the reconsideration question may be added to the agenda at any time prior to final printing and posting of the agenda.  A motion to reconsider must be made by a council member on the prevailing side of the question, but may be seconded by any member. A motion to reconsider, having been put and lost, shall not be renewed either by the mover or by any other member of the council. . . . [emphasis added]

 

Pursuant to the council rules, Councilmember McKenzie requested that the reconsideration question be added to the next scheduled regular meeting of the City Council following the master plan adoption vote – the January 10, 2018, meeting.  If a reconsideration motion made under this item fails, there will be no further action to reconsider the December 13, 2017 adoption.  If a reconsideration motion passes, the master plan adoption agenda item would be brought back to a future council meeting to be revisited following the required NRS Chapter 278 noticing requirements for adopting a master plan.

 

Financial Implications:  None at this time.

 

Legal Implications:  Legal review completed for compliance with City procedures and Nevada Law.
