The City Council approved a resolution Monday night calling for a citizens' committee to advise the Redevelopment Agency on a 367-acre housing redevelopment project.
The resolution was passed in a 3-0 vote. Councilmen Marvin Graves and Allen Shelby abstained because they own property in the project area.
The committee will be composed of property owners, tenants, businessmen and members of organizations in the largely residential area, according to redevelopment Director Robert Dickey, who said the committee will be formed by Jan. 26.
The preliminary project area, which encompasses about one-fourth of the city in its most populated area, was adopted by the Planning Commission on Oct. 21.
