In other City Council business

In other business at Tuesday’s meeting:
• City Council lowered the speed limit on Reeves Street — a narrow, residential road — to 25 mph in response to a petition signed by 73 percent of the property owners on the street.
• City Council set a public hearing for Feb. 4 on the nomination of the Napoleon B. McCanless House at 619 S. Main St. to the National Register of Historic Places. Livingstone College owns the house, which was identified in the 2001 Architectural Survey of properties that are eligible for the designation.
The National Park Service would make a final determination.
• The city’s Historic Preservation Commission listed goals for the coming year including $50,000 for the historic preservation incentive grant program, develop and convene a master plan implementation team, complete the design guidelines update, more education and outreach, develop a new website and create an online submittal process.
The commission also wants $20,000 for Chestnut Hill neighborhood’s nomination to the National Register and would like to partner with the city’s new Housing Advocacy Commission for a housing stabilization pilot program.
• The Hurley Park Advisory Board’s goals for next year include pond dredging, $12,000 to fill the vacant employee position (Hurley Foundation will match with $12,000), plan for phase three replanting, $2,000 for the spring celebration and lecture and $3,370 for new picnic tables.
• Goals for the city’s Tree Board include $5,000 to complete two more sections of the GIS tree survey, $2,000 for neighborhood tree planting projects, sponsor a fall conference on the economic benefits of urban forestry, continue education and outreach and amend the city code to change public tree infractions from civil penalties to citations/fines enforceable by code enforcement.
