[áVOTE TAKENá] >> GOOD EVENING, LADIES AND
GENTLEMEN, AND WELCOME TO THE NORFOLK CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS.
WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE ALL OF YOU HERE.
FOR YOUR BENEFIT, THE PROCESS WHICH WE'LL FOLLOW TONIGHT, THE
FIRST THING WE'RE GOING TO DO IS TAKE UP PUBLIC HEARINGS AND THE
FIST PUBLIC HEARING WILL BE NOMINATIONS FOR THE SCHOOL
BOARD. AT THE CONCLUSION OF PUBLIC
HEARINGS, WE WILL MOVE TO THE CONSENT AGENDA AND THERE ARE A
COUPLE OF MATTERS THERE. THE COUNCIL CAN, IF IT DESIRES,
VOTE ON BOTH OF THOSE MATTERS AT ONE TIME, AND THEN WE'LL MOVE
DIRECTLY TO THE REGULAR AGENDA. THERE ARE 18 MATTERS THERE AND I
THINK WE HAVE ONE ADD-ON FOR ONE APPOINTMENT.
AT THE CONCLUSIONá-- AND BY THE WAY, WE'LL VOTE ON ALL THESE
MATTERS IN THE WAY THAT THEY ARE NUMBERED ON THE PRINTED DOCKET.
AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE REGULAR AGENDA, IF ANY MEMBER OF THE
PUBLIC WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THE CITY COUNCIL ON A NON-AGENDA
ITEM, YOU WILL BE GIVEN THAT OPPORTUNITY.
BUT IN ORDER TO HAVE YOUR NAME CALLED, YOU MUST HAVE FIRST
SIGNED A SLIP OF PAPER WHICH THE CLERK HAS MADE AVAILABLE IN THE
LOBBY BEHIND THE COUNCIL CHAMBERS BEFORE THE MEETING
BEGAN. BEFORE WE MOVE TO PUBLIC HEARING
ONE, WE DO HAVE ONE CEREMONIAL MATTER AND LORI CROUCH IS GOING
TO COME UP AND INTRODUCE LAWRENCE WOMACK, THE WINNER OF
THE LOVENORFOLKVA PHOTO CONTEST. >> RIGHT.
GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. ON MAY 14th, AN IS YOU KNOW, AND
I SENT YOU SOME EMAILS ABOUT IT, WE ROLLED OUT OUR FIRST
LOVENORFOLKVA FACEBOOK PHOTO CONTEST AND OVER A TWO AND A
HALF PERIOD OF TIME, WE RECEIVED OVER 100 PHOTOS.
WE HAD A PANEL OF FIVE JUDGES WHITTLE THOSE DOWN TO TEN AND
OUR PUBLIC VOTING BEGAN TO JUNE 4th.
AND THE CRITERIA REALLY WAS COMPOSITION OF PHOTO, BUT MOST
IMPORTANTLY, INTERPRETATION OF THE CITY OF NORFOLK AND WHAT
THESE FOLKS FELT WAS A GOOD INTERPRETATION, AND SO I'M
PLEASED TO PRESENT TO YOU TONIGHT FLORENCE WOMACK, HER
FRIEND, HER BROTHER AND HER PARENTS ARE HERE AND THIS IS THE
PICTURE THAT WON BY A VOTE. WATERSIDE AT NIGHT WITH
FIREWORKS. >> WOW.

LIKE TO GO AHEAD AND STAND. CAN YOU STAND SO THE PEOPLE IN
THEá-- >> ALL RIGHT.
AND WE HAVE A GIFT FOR YOU. FIRST OF ALL, WE'D LOVE TO HAVE
YOU MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT WHY YOU DECIDED TO ENTER THIS ANDá--
>> I ENJOY TAKING PICTURES AS A HOBBY AND WATERSIDE IS A GREAT
PLACE TO TAKE THEM. >> OKAY.

THAT CONCLUDES THE CEREMONIAL PORTION OF TONIGHT'S MEETING.
THANK YOU FOR COMING DOWN, FLORENCE.
THANK YOU, REALLY. AND WE WILL MOVE DIRECTLY THEN
TO PUBLIC HEARING NUMBER ONE. >> PUBLIC HEARING SCHEDULED THIS
DAY TO RECEIVE NOMINATIONS FOR APPOINTMENT TO THE NORFOLK
SCHOOL BOARD. >> ALL RIGHT.
THIS IS THAT MOMENT IN TIME THAT THE CITY COUNCIL, ACCORDING TO
STATE LAW, HAS SCHEDULED THE PUBLIC HEARING TO RECEIVE
NOMINATIONS FOR THE CITY'S SCHOOL BOARD.
THERE ARE THREE POSITIONS OPEN AND WHAT WE'LL DO, IT'Sá--
DURING THEá-- OUR PROCESS HAS BEEN, REALLY, TO RECEIVE NAMES
FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE WRITTEN TO US, PEOPLE WHO CALLED US, AS
WELL AS PEOPLE WHO APPEAR AND HAVE THEIR NAMES PLACED IN
NOMINATION. TONIGHT AT THIS MEETING.
BUT THE NAME HAS TO BE MENTIONED THIS EVENING IN ORDER FOR US TO
CONSIDER IT. AND SO FIRST OF ALL, WE'VE HAD A
COUPLE PEOPLE SIGN UP FOR PUBLIC HEARING ONE AND I'LL BEGIN BY
CALLING THEM. DANIEL MONTAGUE.
>> GOOD EVENING, MR.áMAYOR, COUNCIL, MR.áJONES.
MY NAME IS DAN MON TA YOU. I GIVE AT 4605 CREEK STREET HERE
IN THE CITY OF NORFOLK. ONCE AGAIN, I AM NOMINATING
MYSELF AS A PROTEST CANDIDATE FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD FOR THE
SIMPLE REASON IS WE HAVE THE LAST CITY AROUND HERE TO NOT
HAVE AN ELECTED SCHOOL BOARD. WITH ALL THE STUFF THAT'S GONE
ON IN THE PAST YEAR, I THINK'S ABOUT TIME TO HOLD A SCHOOL
BOARD ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PUBLIC, THAT THEY CAN'T RUN IT, THEN
THEY NEED TO BE CHANGED SO THAT WE CAN GET PEOPLE IN THERE THAT
CAN RUN IT. AND THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON WAY
TOO LONG. AND SO PLEASE LET'S HAVE AN
ELECTED SCHOOL BOARD. OKAY?
THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU.
GLEN JONES. >> GOOD EVENING, MR.áMAYOR.
I'D LIKE TO GIVE THIS TO THE CLERK.
GOOD EVENING. HONORABLE MAYOR, VICE MAYOR,
MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, CITY MANAGER, MY NAME IS ROBERT GLEN
JONES AND I COME TO YOU TONIGHT WITH A PASSION OF MINE I'VE HAD
FOR SOME TIME. FIRST TO NOMINATE MY NAME AS A
PARTICIPANT FOR NORFOLK PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD.
WHY? I'VE BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE
EDUCATIONAL PROCESS FOR SOME TIME IN OUR CITY.
I BELIEVE WE HAVE A GOOD EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM.
SOME THINGS NEED TO BE WORKED OUT.
I'LL PUT OUR KIDS AGAINST ANY KIDS IN ANY STATE OR ANY STATE.
THAT'S HOW I FEEL ABOUT OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM AND OUR KIDS.
THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT NEED TO BE WORKED OUT.
THERE'S SOME RESEARCH THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.
THERE'S SOME THINGS AND PROGRAMS THAT NEED TO BE ADDED ON TO HELP
OUR KIDS, ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT ARE DEFINITELY, DEFINITELY IN
NEED. OUR AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE
FALLING SHORT, GREATLY. THERE'S A NEED.
WE HAVE KIDS WHO GET UP IN THE MORNING AND DON'T WANT TO COME
TO SCHOOL. PARENTS NEED MORE INVOLVEMENT,
DEFINITELY. THERE'S A NEED.
I'VE RESEARCHED THESE PROGRAMS, I'VE IMPLEMENTED PROGRAMS FOR
THE SCHOOL BOARD, AND QUITE A FEW TIMES.
AND I FEEL AS THOUGH I HAVE SOMETHING TO GIVE.
NOT ONLY THAT, I HAVE KIDS INVOLVED IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM,
SO I HAVE SOMETHING ELSE THAT MY KIDS CAN VALUE FROM.
I BELIEVE THAT ONCE AGAIN, I BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE A GREAT
SCHOOL SYSTEM, BUT SOME THINGS NEED TO BE WORKED OUT.
AND IF I'M NOMINATED, I WILL DO MY BEST TO WORK ALONG WITH
OTHERS TO RESEARCH AND BRING RESEARCH THAT WILL HELP, OUT OF
THE BOX THINKING, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WE NEED, OUT OF THE BOX
THINKING TO HELP OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >> THANK YOU.

HEARING ONE. THERE ARE THREE MEMBERS OF THE

>> YOU KNOW, I HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT THE TRANSFORMATION OF
GRANDY VILLAGE AND IN TERMS OF, I GUESS A FEW YEARS AGO, THEY
STARTED THE MARKET RENT AND I GUESS MY CONCERN IS THAT, I'VE
ALREADY SEEN THE DEMOGRAPHICS CHANGE, BUT WITH THIS PROXIMITY
TO THE LIGHT RAIL STATION AT BALLENTINE BOULEVARD AND WITH
FEATURES LIKE THIS CHANGING, I WOULD IMAGINES THAT THEY ARE
TRYING TO ATTRACT A CERTAIN INCOME LEVEL AS FAR AS RENTERS
ARE CONCERNED, PEOPLE WHO ARE PROBABLY TIRED OF RIDING BACK
AND FORTH TO VIRGINIA BEACH, BUT I'M JUSTá-- YOU KNOW, I'M JUST
SUSPECT OF HOW THEY'RE GRADUALLY CHANGING GRANDY VILLAGE.
IF YOU RIDE THROUGH THERE, THERE'S ONE PORTION OF IT, YOU
DON'T SEE ANY CHILDREN RIGHT THERE AT BALLENTINE BOULEVARD
ALL THE WAY OVER TO THAT MULTIá-- THAT GREAT FACILITY
THEY BUILT THAT I HOPE DOESN'T TURN INTO A COUNTRY CLUB.
YOU KNOW, I'M GOING TO VOTE NO AGAINST THIS BECAUSE I'M JUST
VERY SKEPTICAL OF THE MOTIVES OF THE HOUSING AUTHORITY AS IT
RELATES TO GRANDY VILLAGE AND HOW IT'S RELATED TO THE
PROXIMITY TO THE LIGHT RAIL STATION.
I VOTE NO. >> MR. SMIGIEL.

COMMISSION, TO AMEND CHAPTER 25 OF THE ZONING ORDINANCE OF THE
CITY OF NORFOLK, 1992, TO MODIFY PROVISIONS GOVERNING ADULT USE
ESTABLISHMENTS ABUTTING A RESIDENTIAL ZONING DISTRICT.

AND IS HERE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS. ANYBODY HAVE ANY?
>> I'M JUST WONDERING IF FRANK CAN EXPLAIN TO US WHAT'S GOING
ON. >> SURE.
MR.áDUKE, WILL YOU GIVE US SOME EXPLANATION?
>> OKAY. MR.áMAYOR, MEMBERS OF THE
COUNCIL, THIS PARTICULAR ITEM IS TECHNICALLY CORRECTING A GLITCH
THAT WE MADE AS STAFF WHEN WE DEVELOPED THE ORDINANCE
PROVISIONS FOR ADULT USE ESTABLISHMENTS IN PROXIMITY TO
SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL. WE HAD INTENDED AT THE TIME WE
ADOPTED THESE TO ENSURE THAT WE WERE NOT CREATING NUISANCE
PROBLEMS FOR SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL, AND WE INADD VERY
TENTLY USED A "OR" WHEN WE MEANT TO USE A "AND" SO WHAT IT MEANT
WAS PROPERTIES THAT MAY NOT BE DEVELOPED WITH SINGLE-FAMILY
RESIDENTIAL, BUT DID HAVE SINGLE-FAMILY ZONING, COULD NOT
APPLY FOR LATER HOURS AND WE REALIZED ONCE WE DID THIS, WE
MET WITH CITY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE AND WE REALIZED THEY WERE
PLACING ADDITIONAL OBSTACLES WE NEVER INTENDED TO PLACE ON SOME
PROPERTIES WITH REGARD TO WHEN THEY WILL BE ABLE TO SEEK LATER
HOURS. EVERY PROPERTY, WHEN IT COMES IN
FOR THE ABC ESTABLISHMENT, WILL STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE
SPECIAL EXCEPTION PROCESS SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO EVALUATE THEM ON
A CASE BY CASE BASIS. >> RIGHT.
CALL THE ROLL. DISPENSE WITH THE CHARTER
REQUIREMENT FOR READING THE ORDINANCE AND ADOPT.
MR. BURFOOT. >> AYE.
>> MR. PROTOGYROU. >> AYE.
>> MR. RIDDICK. >> AYE.
>> MR. SMIGIEL. >> AYE.
>> DR. WHIBLEY. >> AYE.
>> MS. WILLIAMS. >> AYE.
>> MR. WINN. >> AYE.
>> MR. FRAIM. >> AYE.
>> THE CONSENT AGENDA, WOULD ANY MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL LIKE TO
HAVE EITHER ONE OF THESE MATTERS CONSIDERED SEPARATELY?
>> C 2. >> THEN CALL C-1.
>> TO APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA, MR.áBURFOOT.
>> AYE. >> MR. PROTOGYROU.

>> AYE. C-2.
>> A LETTER FROM THE CITY MANAGER PRESENTING THE CITY
PLANNING COMMISSIONS RECOMMENDATION TO THE
APPLICATION OF NICK'S DINER FOR GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT AND A
REZONING, AMENDMENT OF THE ZONING ORDINANCE AND THE
RECOMMENDED ACTION IS TO AUTHORIZE THE CLERK TO ADVERTISE
FOR PUBLIC HEARING FOR JULY 10. >> ALL RIGHT.
I JUSTá-- THE REASON WHY I WANTED IT SEPARATED, YOU GUYS
WERE CARBON-COPIED ON SOME EMAILS FROM THE CIVIC LEAGUE IN
THAT AREA WITH OPPOSITION. IT WAS EXPLAINED TO THE CIVIC
LEAGUE THAT THIS REALLY WASN'T A VOTE TODAY.
IT WAS TO ALLOW THEM TO BE ABLE TO DEFEND OR SPEAK ON THEIR CASE
WITH US. WE ARE ASKING, IN THIS ONE,
ACTUALLY, IT FALLS IN LINE WITH WHEN IT WILL COME ON JULY 10th,
WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO SCHEDULE AN OCEAN VIEW TASK FORCE MEETING
TO DISCUSS THIS ONE AND TWO OTHERá-- I GUESS YOU WANT TO
CALL THEM CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES DOWN IN OCEANVIEW DEALING WITH
SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS. AND I JUST WANTED TO MAKE YOU
ARE AWARE OF THAT, THAT WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO TALK IT OUT IN
THE COMMUNITY. I THINK THERE'S SOME
MISINFORMATION THAT'S GOING AROUND ABOUT ALL THREE OF THE
ISSUES AND WE JUGS WANT TO MAKEá-- JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE
THAT EVERYBODY IS CLEAR ON THIS. >> SHOULD WE KEEP IT THE WAY IT
IS? >> I THINK IT'S FINE.
I THINK THE ISSUE HERE IS NOT NECESSARILY THE SPECIAL
EXCEPTION OF 11-60 BECAUSE IT'S NOT REALLY A BAR.
IT WAS MAINLY THE REZONING BECAUSE IT'S A RESIDENTIAL
ZONING AND PUTTING IT BACK IN COMMERCIAL, WHICH IS WHERE MOST
OF THE ISSUE IS COMING FROM. WE NEED TO LOOK AT THE GENERAL
PLAN AND THE OCEAN VIEW CORRIDOR STUDY A LITTLE BIT BETTER BEFORE
WEá-- >> OKAY.
SO WE'LL GO AHEAD AND ADVERTISE FOR IT JULY 10th FAN WE HAVE TO
CHANGE IT, WE CAN MOVE IT. >> OKAY.
>> OKAY. >> APPROVE C-2?
MR. BURFOOT. >> AYE.
>> MR.áPROTOGYROU. >> AYE.
>> MR. RIDDICK. >> AYE.
>> MR. SMIGIEL. >> AYE.
>> DR. WHIBLEY. >> AYE.
>> MS.áWILLIAMS. >> AYE.
>> MR. WINN. >> AYE.
>> MR. FRAIM. >> AYE.
MR. SMIGIEL USED THE TERM CARBON-COPY.
WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD ANYONE USE THAT?
HE'S TOO YOUNGá-- HE READ ABOUT THOSE SOMEWHERE.
>> YOU DATED YOURSELF THERE. >> R-1, PLEASE.
>> AN ORDINANCE GRANTING A SPECIAL EXCEPTION TO PERMIT THE
OPERATION OF AN AUTOMOBILE REPAIR FACILITY ON PROPERTY
LOCATED AT 931 AND 933 PECAN POINT ROAD.
AND THIS WAS PASSED BY MAY 22. >> AND MR.áMANUAL ANGELO IS
HERE. >> NO COMMENT.
>> NO COMMENT, OKAY. CALL THE ROLL.
>> DISPENSE WITH THE CHARTER REQUIREMENT FOR READING THE
ORDINANCE AND ADOPT. MR. BURFOOT.
>> AYE. >> MR. PROTOGYROU.
>> AYE. >> MR. RIDDICK.
>> I WAS ORIGINALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THIS BECAUSE OF WHATá--
YOU KNOW, ONCE THESE ARE PERMITTED, BUT I LOOKED AT IT ON
A MAP AND SUPPOSEDLY ALL THE WORK IS DONE INSIDE, SO I WILL
VOTE AYE. THE CIVIC LEAGUE VOTED FOR IT,
BUT IT'S QUITE A DISTANCE FROM POPLAR HALL PROPER AS SUCH, BUT
I VOTE AYE. >> MR. SMIGIEL.
>> AYE. >> DR. WHIBLEY.
>> AYE. >> MS. WILLIAMS.
>> I WANT TO THANK ANGELO FOR MEETING WITH THE CIVIC LEAGUE
PRESIDENT AND PREPARING THE INFORMATION.
WE WERE THERE WITH THEM THE FIRST MONDAY NIGHT OF THIS
MONTH, AND SO I HAD SOME CONCERNS ABOUT IT INITIALLY AS
WELL, BUT AFTER FINDING OUT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT THEY'RE
GOING TO DO, I VOTE AYE. >> MR. WINN.
>> AYE. >> MR. FRAIM.
>> AYE. R-2.
>> AN ORDINANCE TO REPEAL FOUR SUBSECTIONS OF SECTION 25-653,
AND TO AMEND AND REORDAIN SECTIONS 25-649 AND 654, OF THE
NORFOLK CITY CODE, 1979, SO AS TO ADD ONE NEW RIGHT TURN ON RED
PROHIBITION AND TEN NEW STOP INTERSECTIONS.
>> THIS WAS PASSED BY AT THE MAY 22 MEETING, I THINK, TO GET SOME
INFORMATION THAT MR.áJAMES HAD. ELLIS, WOULD YOU LIKE TOá--
ELLIS JAMES, PLEASE. ARE WE PREPARED TO ADDRESS THAT
TONIGHT? >> THANK YOU, MR.áMAYOR.
MY NAME IS ELLIS W. JAMES. I RESIDE AT 2021 KENLAKE PLACE
IN THE CITY OF NORFOLK. MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL,
MR.áCITY MANAGER, I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE, SINCE I
HAD EXPRESSED A CONCERN EARLIER ABOUT THE STOP SIGN AT THE
CORNER OF GRIMES, WHICH IS UNDER NUMBER 3 OF R-2.
I WOULD LIKE TO COMMEND THE CITY MANAGER AND THE ADMINISTRATION
FOR PROMPTLY RESPONDING TO MY CONCERN AND IT'S INDICATIVE OF
THE KIND OF RESPONSES THAT WE'RE GETTING FROM THIS ADMINISTRATION
TO THE CITIZENS. AND I THINK THAT'S VERY
IMPORTANT. I KNOW YOU DON'T HEAR THAT FROM
PEOPLE TOO OFTEN UP HERE, BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT
THEY HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB AND IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, THE
FACT THAT ALICE KELLY WENT OUT TO THE SITE AND TOOK A LOOK AND
DISCOVERED THAT THERE WAS FOLIAGE THAT WAS BLOCKING THE
LOCATION, WHICH COULD BE A REAL PROBLEM, JUST SHOWS YOU WHAT A
LITTLE BIT OF PERSEVERE RANS WILL DO AND IN THIS CASE,
MR.áCITY MANAGER, THANKS AGAIN. THANK YOU, MR.áMAYOR.
