Gainesville City Manager Kip Padgett will unveil his proposed 2016 fiscal year budget Thursday morning during a work session.

City Council has heard budget goals and requests from several departments over the past few weeks, and Padgett’s proposal is likely to reflect these priorities.

The new fiscal year begins July 1.

The council work session begins at 9 a.m. Thursday in room 301 of the administration building, 300 Henry Ward Way.

Planning board to consider office development Tuesday night

Plans to develop a 7,700-square-foot building with parking on a 0.67 acre property will go before the city’s planning and appeals board today.

The proposed development includes one access drive from Thompson Bridge Road, with parking in the front and rear.

The city’s planning staff has recommended a few conditions be met before the development can proceed, including substantial buffers to protect nearby residential homes.

The property in question, located at 1510 Thompson Bridge Rd., is currently vacant, with a small driveway and some vegetation.

The Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the municipal courtroom of the Public Safety Complex, 701 Queen City Parkway.
