The ordinance was on the agenda for Tuesday afternoon's regular council meeting. But the delay was approved by council members in the council's executive session.
The delay is hardly a surprise as council chairman Kemp Conrad noted that he would ask for the delay on Friday as a part of Mayor Jim Strickland's proposal to permanently end parking on the Greensward.
"This issue requires ample time for the public to review it and offer input, so I will strongly recommend to my colleagues to delay the final vote on the ordinance that considers the plan until July 19," Conrad said in a statement Friday. "I support this plan.”
The Memphis City Council agreed to delay the final vote on an ordinance concerning Greensward parking for two weeks.
