This Week in Council
Final readings on another ultra-high-density (multi-family-6) zoning case -- 500 W. MLK, a project of Mac Pike's Sutton Company, known for its downtown loft projects.

Initiating eminent-domain proceedings on South Fifth Street for land to build the new Twin Oaks branch library;
A resolution by Danny Thomas endorsing the adjustment of the federal minimum wage to the Universal Living Wage (pegged to the cost of housing); and
A public hearing on, and adoption of, the Seaholm District Master Plan.
