Other highlights on council’s agenda for Tuesday night:

-The council will interview candidates for the new steering committee that will help to oversee the funding of a promenade on Yampa Street. Proponents of the promenade have indicated they want to use the tax money to purchase a lot on Yampa Street and convert it into a park. Following the interviews, the council will appoint the members of the seven-member committee.

-The council will hear a presentation on the master plan for Emerald Mountain Park. The city purchased the 586-acre park from Lyman Orton in 2011. Last year, the city used grant money and hired consultants to develop the master plan for the area.
