Parking Ordinance Amendment Change – LO7 & LO9
Discussion took place regarding additional changes to LO7 & LO9 to
further clarify prohibited parking and define the downtown business area.

The Director of Public Safety requests that the Commission authorize the
approval of the changes for Chapter 92, LO7 to read as follows:

(LO7) Along or on any unpaved parkway, except where the same is used
for a driveway to enter private or public property. Parking on the terrace
(i.e., the area between the property line and the street) is permitted from
December 1 through March 1 on those streets having allowed parking on
only one side of the street, but not on the paved portion of the terrace.

The Director of Public Safety requests that the Commission authorize the
approval of the changes for Chapter 92, LO9 to further expand the
downtown business area to extend to Ninth Street between Muskegon and
Western.

These items will be on the agenda for consideration at the regular meeting
on December 11, 2018 and a Special Meeting will be scheduled for
December 18, 2018 for a Second Reading of the ordinance amendments.
LC Walker Area Improvements – Roof and Dehumidification Systems
As a continuation of the revitalization of the LC Walker Arena, staff is
recommending a number of additional capital repairs, which have been
deferred for a number of years. These improvements are expected to be
funded partially by the City’s Public Improvement Fund and partially by the
Downtown Development Authority. The projects are as follows:

Restroom Renovation and Relocation
Roof Replacement
Dehumidification System Replacement
Heating System Replacement

Staff is seeking authorization to accept bids only for roof replacement and
dehumidification system replacement, as these items are time sensitive.

Roof Replacement: Certified Building Solutions: $1,051,413
Dehumidification System Replacement: Hurst Mechanical: $551,763

This item will be on the agenda for consideration at the regular meeting on
December 11, 2018.

Pere Marquette Park – Traffic, Intersection, and Parking Discussion
The Commission was provided with information to facilitate their discussion
related to the traffic operations along Beach Street and Lakeshore Drive in
the vicinity of Pere Marquette Park and potential improvements.

Mike Franzak will be working on gathering more information to report to the
Commission.

The Worksession Meeting adjourned at 8:22 p.m.

                                   Respectfully Submitted,
