2nd Reading Ordinance 2019-29 to enact Chapter 12, Motor Vehicles and Traffic, a new Article 6, shared mobility dockless electric scooters and bicycles, and unfranchised rental scooters.

Many communities are trying to manage the proliferation of dockless motorized scooter and bicycles. These conveyances are unregulated and often end up abandoned in parking spaces, bike lanes, parks, sidewalks, boardwalks, and other public places, and are often used by minors who lack proper training or safety equipment. This ordinance does not apply to pedal operated bicycles rented to consumers by a properly licensed business.

Tagged Passions:ordinance, business, equipment, streets, electric, training, rental, license, Bicycles, Pedestrian, traffic, parking, and bicycles

If passed this ordinance would make it:

Unlawful to leave mobility device or unfranchised rented motor scooter in the rights-of-way, or a rented scooter on public property anywhere in the City.

As proposed, law enforcement officers, parking enforcement officers, any party contracted by the City are authorized to impound the device. Any such device left unattended on public property may be removed and held by the City for 48 hours. A confiscated scooter shall be released upon proof of ownership and payment of a 100 fee for removal and storage. Motorized scooters held for over 48 hours may be disposed of by discarding, donation, auction, or any other manner deemed appropriate by the City.

Motion M2019-84 to authorize the City Manager to negotiate a contract for Architectural Services relating to the proposed Arts Innovation District.

The City is currently engaged in an effort to identify a firm to assist in the design of the public structures and spaces in the proposed Arts and Innovation District as described in the City s newly adopted Downtown Master Plan. State law precludes the usual Request for Proposal process for procuring architectural services. Instead the City has conducted a Request for Qualifications process, the final step of which should be concluded on Monday. If, at that time a leading firm has emerged, Council will be asked to consider this motion for a specific firm. If a leading firm has not emerged on Monday, this item will be continued to the June 25 meeting. Since price is not a consideration in the RFQ process, approval of this motion only authorizes the Manager to negotiate an agreement with the firm identified in this action. Once the agreement has been negotiated, that contract will come back before City council for approval.
