Cottonwood Council considers temporary uses, paving and the transfer station

COTTONWOOD -- Three issues face the Cottonwood City Council in a work session Tuesday evening. The city council will consider possible amendments to its regulations concerning street vendors or temporary vendors.

The amendments would address site development for temporary use; whether the use is on public property or in street rights of way.

A second matter concerns the proposed paving around the former Old Town Recreation Center. There is now the worry that the pavement could be damaged if completed prior to restoration of the building as a microbrewery. Another consideration is how to proceed with paving before it is understood how the Old Town Activity Park is updated.

When the building was sold to the private partners, the city retained the parking area as public, but agreed to pave it as part of the sale.

Finally, the work session will consider whether the city-operated waste transfer station should begin accepting commercial waste at a higher fee structure. Refuse is proposed to be accepted from construction contractors, landscapers and the like but not from commercial waste haulers.

The council meets at 824 N. Main Street, Cottonwood at 6 p.m.
