WHEREAS:

The City of Cambridge has enjoyed recent success enlivening its streetscape and encouraging the increase of local retail desirable by nearby neighborhoods; and
    

WHEREAS:

It is anticipated that one issue that the city's Community Development Department, License Commission, Planning Board and Board of Zoning Appeals will increasingly face involves the impact of the logistics of delivery and trash removal to and from these businesses of adjacent residents; and
    
WHEREAS: Residents feel that creating a thoughtful process that encompasses planning and enforcement on the site location and use of loading zones would be beneficial in solving logistical challenges before they become neighborhood disturbances; now therefore be it
 
ORDERED: That the City Manager be and hereby is requested confer with the License Commission, Community Development Department, Planning Board and Board of Zoning Appeals on the abovementioned issue and report back with relevant information and ideas for improvement to the City Council.
