Council moves tonight's meeting back to City Hall

Tonight’s Gloucester’s City Council meeting, initially planned for the Lanesville Community Center as part of an effort to get the council out to other parts of the city, will instead be held back on its familiar ground — in City Hall’s Kyrouz Auditorium.

Council President Jackie Hardy said Monday night that the meeting, set for 7 p.m., was being switched back to City Hall due to a number of reasons, including the anticipation of a large crowd.

Tonight’s meeting is set to address at least two high-profile issues:

For one, the council is slated to finalize wording of a nonbinding referendum on the future of the former Fuller School building on the city’s November ballots.

The council is also expected to decide both on whether to formally back the request from Cape Pond Ice to be granted relief from the Designated Port Area development mandates, and whether to explore seeking the same relief for the city-owned I-4, C-2 property off Rogers Street.
