The Corvallis City Council meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the downtown fire station, 400 NW Harrison Blvd. and will review a possible land development code text amendment that would require developers to hold preapplication neighborhood meetings on their projects.

Councilors are meeting away from their usual Monday slot because of the New Year's Day holiday. The council also will meet Jan. 16 because of the Jan. 15 Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

The Planning Commission and the Community Involvement and Diversity Advisory Board earlier reviewed the meetings proposal, with the two bodies reaching different conclusions. The Planning Commission rejected the idea Nov. 29 on a 6-1 vote, while the community board unanimously approved the concept Dec. 6. Commissioners liked the concept but felt such meetings should be voluntary.

Councilors also are scheduled to review a plan to have Majestic Theatre operations be permanently placed under Parks and Recreation Department supervision and receive an update on security issues at the library’s main branch in downtown Corvallis.
