CITY HALLStaff proposed amendments to the Kingman landscaping ordinance drew a lukewarm reception at the April 7 City Council meeting. The Council voted to send the matter back to staff for further work with direction that revisions be more friendly to commercial enterprise. The Council decision came after input from business community members Toby Orr, Richard Hamilton and Dwayne Patterson.Each of them said they appreciated staff desires to beautify the community through landscaping regulations, but they also argued that a number of the requirements of the amended ordinance are too stringent and expensive, and will have a negative impact on investment and development.
