T.F. City Council to Further Discuss ‘Welcoming City’ Resolution
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – The public will again have the chance to comment about a “welcoming city” resolution at this evening’s Twin Falls City Council meeting.
The proposal to designate Twin Falls as a welcoming city was pitched by a local Boy Scout troop in early April, a proposal that was met by both residents who favor the resolution and individuals who are opposed to it.
Boise adopted a welcoming city resolution, but the council said if the city were to adopt one of its own it’d have to be unique to Twin Falls and not a copy of Boise’s resolution. The council voted to have city draft a resolution, but it has since “received significant additional input from the public,” according to information from the city.
Staff has also reviewed several existing policies, plans, and other documents to look for ways in which the City has already adopted welcoming and safe practices that could be included in the creation of a resolution.
As such, city staff has requested that the council further discuss the topic and welcome more public input.
Also on this evening’s agenda is a request to approve the use of Shoshone Falls reserve funds to repair the Centennial Trail; and a request to adopt a resolution declaring the city’s intent to dispose or real property and setting a date for a public hearing.
The meeting starts at 5 p.m. at Twin Falls City Council Chambers, 305 Third Ave. East.
