The City Council has scheduled a special meeting Monday to discuss the Plan Commission.

No details about the meeting were announced, but its known that some aldermen are concerned about dissension on the commission over the draft downtown plan.

The split between commissioners who are generally satisfied with building height limits proposed in the plan and those who want sharply lower height limits led to a walkout by some commissioners at Wednesday’s meeting.

Other recent commission sessions have been the scene of angry personal exchanges among the commissioners.

The aldermen also have scheduled an executive session to discuss personnel matters following the public discussion of the Plan Commission at 6 p.m. in the Aldermanic Library.
