REGULAR AGENDA ITEMS REQUIRING A PUBLIC HEARING:

 

●          Consideration and action to approve selecting one (1) of the following Ordinances for the City of Surprise, an Ordinance adjusting the Election Districts of the city and declaring an emergency – Ordinance No. 02-29 (Map “A-2” Revised), Ordinance No. 02-32 (Map “B”) or Ordinance No. 02-33 (Plan “B” Revised – APPROVED ORDINANCE NO. 02-33 with recommended changes by Vice-Mayor Smith.

 

Attorney, Marguerite Leoni commented to the Council that Plan “B” Revised does meet all legal criteria.

 

Public Comments:

 

Joe Williams – 17200 West Bell Road (Happy Trails) commented that he would like Council to consider keeping Happy Trails united in one district, not two as previous.

 

Linda Wilbourne – 17842 W. Arizona Drive (Arizona Traditions)  commented that Arizona Traditions is a fairly small guarded/gated community and we all know our neighbors in the community as well as we all work together, play together and fight together.  We do not want our community split in any way.

 

Speaking as a past resident of Happy Trails and watching the confusion that occurs when a community is split, I do not want to see that happen to our development.  We try to get all of the new residents that live here year-round registered to vote and introduce them to our Councilman.  That is one reason for the high voter turnout on election days from Arizona Traditions.  Happy Trails gets totally confused as some don’t know which district they are in or where to vote.  Decisions on how to vote takes enough time without getting confused on the location where you cast your ballot.

 

At Happy Trails, which is also a gated community, one segment knows their Councilman and the other segment has never seen their Councilman.  We feel confident that the other Councilman doesn’t even know where Happy Trails is located, or if he does know the location, he doesn’t care about them.  On “Meet the Mayor” day at both Arizona Traditions and Happy Trails, oor Councilman is always present.  At Happy Trails only the one Councilman shows up.  The other is a no show which confuses the residents even more. 

 

Plan “B Revised” leaves Arizona Traditions as one community in the district and puts Happy Trails back as one community with one Councilman.  We didn’t retire and move to Arizona into guarded/gated communities to be split up and confused.

 

Frank Havelock – 17001 Erin Lane (Arizona Traditions) asked that Council consider Plan “B Revised”  when they cast their vote tonight.  He further commented that this plan represents my community by keeping us as a whole, rather than dividing us into two districts.  The homeowners in Arizona Traditions, along with other similar communities such as Happy Trails and Sun Village have different wants, needs and desires than residents of the family subdivisions.  Living in Arizona Traditions brings back fond memories of living back in Iowa where you know everyone and you were treated like family.  At Arizona Traditions we are one big family, we may disagree among ourselves, but we come together as a unit whenever a problem presents itself.  We feel that being separated into two Council Districts could be very detrimental to our well being.

 

Thomas Shannon – 18044 W. Udall Drive, Surprise, Arizona recommended that Council choose Plan “B Revised” to eliminate splitting Arizona Traditions and Happy Trails.   He further commented that the process for Redistricting has been lengthy and need to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

 

Helen Slatton – 17200 W. Bell Road (Happy Trails) commented that she is a resident of Happy Trails and reported that 9 out of 10 residents don’t vote because of the confusion of having two districts.  She recommends Plan “B Revised” to the Council.

 

James D”Andrea – 17401 N. White Tanks Vista (Arizona Traditions) commented that he would like to personally thank the Mayor and Council for the hard work that they do.  An uneven separation of Arizona Traditions seems to be unnecessary since it is not a particularly large community.  In the last election, we had a tremendous number of people, percentage-wise, who voted.  We have been paid for that by a great deal of hard work  by our Councilman and by regular visits by the Mayor.  Being represented by one person simplifies matters and gives us the feeling of definite representation, which we have now.  I believe I speak for the majority of voters in Arizona Traditions on this subject, so please keep us in the same district, and keep us whole.  Select the new Plan “B Revised”. 

 

Donald May – 17461 N. Fairway Drive (Arizona Traditions) asked Council to consider Plan “B Revised”.  “Please do not split Arizona Traditions”.

 

Bill Lipscomb – 15976 W. Bottletree (Kingswood Parke) commended Councilman Cox and the Redistricting Committee for putting in many tireless hours working on this project.  The Committee was impassioned by this project.  He further commented that he wishes that Council will make the right choice in choosing a map this evening.

 

David Sobelman – 13700 W. Cottonwood (West Point) and Redistricting Committee Spokesperson  reminded Council that the Committee presented 30 maps total to be reviewed, and if Plan B Revised  is selected, there will be 4 Council representing the Original Townsite.  She encouraged Council to do what is best for the citizens and recommended Plan A2 Revised.  This plan is not political.

 

Mayor Shafer thanked the Committee and Councilman Cox for their hard work and dedication to this project.  She was impressed with the community participation. 

 

Vice-Mayor Smith asked that Council consider selecting Plan “B Revised” and to readjust the lines to keep Kingswood Parke in one district and he further commented that he understood that this would place him in District 5.

 

Attorney Leoni commented that these issues could be met, but wanted Vice-Mayor Smith to understand that he could not run in the next election in District 2.    Smith verified that he understood.

 

Councilman Allen verified that Smith could run in District 5 when this district is up again for election?   Ms. Leoni confirmed that this was correct.

 

Councilman Montoya commented that he was not able to attend the June 27th Council Meeting and was pleased that Councilman Villanueva questioned District 3 in regards to the low percentage of minority voters, and was concerned that this could promote a challenge.   He further commented that the gated communities have become a challenge for him due to not being able to gain access. 

 

Doug Johnson (National Demographics) commented that Plan “B Revised” was within the 10% population deviation and could justify the change.

 

City Attorney, Dave Ward advised Council that the Ordinance chosen would not become effective until the swearing-in of new Council. 

 

No other public comments were made.

 

Allen made the motion to approve Ordinance No. 02-33 (Plan “B” Revised) with recommended changes by Vice-Mayor Smith to readjust the lines to not split Kingswood Parke which would place Vice-Mayor Smith in District 5, and for the ordinance to not become operative until the swearing-in of new Council.    Vukanovich seconded the motion.  7 yes vote.  Motion carried.

Public Comments:

·         Consideration and action to approve Resolution No. 02-174 – Amending the time of assessment for water, sewer and trash set-up fees and deposits – APPROVED.

 

Vukanovich commented that he was confused about what he is suppose to vote on.  Does this include the Ramp up?  Deputy Attorney, Jeff Blilie commented that this has nothing to do with the Ramp-Up, just to change the time that the City will be able to collect the 1st bill from the residents.  No other comments were made.

Vice-Mayor Smith thanked the Arts Commission for their hard work, but felt that the Mayor was rushing the commission into going along with what she wanted.  The City needs an Arts Master Plan, and further commented that others should have been involved.
