"I think if we don't get a vision plan in place before this commission changes, we've lost an opportunity," Burbridge said. "So this is something I'll be aggressively pursuing."
In other business, the Commission was presented with a 2012 projects summary, with City Manager Joshua Ray highlighting the numerous projects which were completed during the year, including resurfacing and construction projects, Tiger Park completion, and Minimum Park improvements.
"It's nice to see what we've accomplished throughout the year," Ray said. "I'm excited to look back and see that we had some successes."
The Commission approved a resolution adopting the city's 2012-2013 annual performance plan, but asked city staff to provide additional descriptions and breakdowns on specifically what steps will be taken on each project during particular times of the year.
Additional business included approval to submit fiscal year 2013 Youth Conservation Corps Grant Application, which Ray said would go toward having the YCC work on Riverside Park, the next area of need; adoption of fiscal year 2013 annual budget; approval of a request by BP America for a permit to upgrade an existing gas well; and approval of an access easement for Conoco Phillips to service existing and new gas wells.
