City Council to discuss growth at UC Davis
With UC Davis drafting its long-range growth plans, Davis city leaders and residents are worried about campus plans to increase enrollment by thousands of students in the next 10 years. Of particular concern is where all those students will be housed in the notoriously slow-growth city. The City Council is scheduled to discuss its response to the university’s proposals, including requesting the university build more on-campus housing. The council meets at 6:30 p.m. in its chambers, 23 Russell Blvd.
Galt weighs pot rules
The Galt City Council is scheduled to consider marijuana regulation at its 10 a.m. meeting. The changes under review come after state voters passed Proposition 64 in November, legalizing recreational marijuana and allowing some local regulation. The changes under consideration in Galt would modify the city’s development code to regulate the personal, medical and commercial use of marijuana, including requiring an indoor cultivation permit before allowing residents to cultivate up to six plants within structures on their properties. The council meets in its chambers at 380 Civic Drive, Galt.
