The City Council will hold a last-minute special meeting today to decide whether to place the so-called Greenlight initiative on the same special election ballot as the Newport-Mesa school district's bond measure in June.

Mayor John Noyes on Saturday received a letter from Greenlight, the group that drafted the slow-growth measure, proposing that its initiative appear on the June ballot instead of the November presidential election ballot. City officials must make a decision today to meet the 88-day requirement for placing measures on the ballot.

The initiative proposes to let residents vote on major developments that require a significant general plan amendment. The special meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. at City Hall, 3300 Newport Blvd.
