MATTERS FOR COUNCIL ACTION Part I

1. Introduction of Ordinance No. 10-32.01, an ordinance to amend Chapter 31, "Streets, Sidewalks, and Other Public Places", Article II, "Street Improvement," of the Novi Code of Ordinances, in order to add a new section, Section 31-20, entitled "Acceptance of Certain Streets," to include standards and a procedure for acceptance of streets not governed by other code provisions.  First Reading

Mr. Pearson said they had been looking at several ordinances and how to amend them to make it better for some of the residents who were inside of some of the half built subdivisions. It would not solve all the topics of neighborhoods that were built without this final lift of streets and other improvements; however, it would provide another tool to help with standards and procedures not governed by other code provisions.
