Body
SUMMARY:
This is a request for approval of an ordinance to exclude approximately 1.7 acres of property located in the Briargate area from the boundaries of the USAFA Visitor's Center Business Improvement District (the "BID").

At the October 7th and 8th meetings updated drafts of this ordinance were distributed with revised language addressing the sequencing and timing of execution of the inclusions and exclusion, as well as a change in the newspaper used for publication of legal notice. The ordinance attached with this agenda includes these updated documents as presented.
