We also handle the sale or lease of City property to third parties, the release of public easements on private property, and applications from third parties to use portions of public right-of-way.

As part of ongoing efforts to improve City operations and efficiencies, City Council approved Resolution 20180201-063 directing the City Manager to create a pilot retrospective review program for a regular, systemic review to assess existing policies, reports, rules and regulations related to the Economic Opportunity and Affordability strategic outcome.
City policies, reports, rules, and regulations will be reviewed to determine; if there is a continuing need for it; if there are possible conflicts; if it has been affected by technology/economic or other industry changes; does it serve the original purpose; and is it fair and equitable?
