The landowners appealed the commission's decision, but the City Council — in a unanimous decision — backed the commission and city staffers' ruling that the owners had to pay for a review before they could develop the land.
After the ruling from the council, some of the landowners sued the city and the councilmen themselves in an attempt to overturn the ruling.
At a late August council meeting the council decided to revisit the project.
At Tuesday's hearing, the council will again hear from the landowners' representatives, who have argued the landowners don't need to delay their project any further because all potential impacts of the development have been addressed.
The council might hear a rebuttal from city Planning Director Ricardo Hinojosa, who has argued that the project needs a review because of traffic and environmental concerns.
The City Council meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in City Hall, 608 Heber Ave.
Also on Tuesday's agenda:
· City Manager Richard Inman will seek direction concerning a possible increase in the transient occupancy tax being placed on the March ballot.
· Linda Nuñez, the city's human resources director, will discuss reclassification policy and procedure and the Ewing classification study. - Mayor Victor Carrillo will appoint two more commissioners to the Calexico Housing Authority board of commissioners, two to the recreation commission, one police commissioner, a beautification commissioner and an economic development commissioner.
