The City Council will discuss a citizen petition Monday calling for either a resolution or a City Charter amendment restricting construction and project funding in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.
The discussion is part of a study session, meaning public testimony will be limited to a total of 15 minutes. The petition requests that through a council resolution or through a charter amendment, the public be required to vote on and approve any construction in the preserve, except for trails and trailhead facilities.
A public vote would also be required if preserve tax funds were used for anything beyond land acquisition and construction of trails and trailhead facilities.
Council members will discuss options and give direction on whether they want city staff to further explore the proposal.
The work study session will be at 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19, in the City Hall Kiva, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd.
