Several items will be discussed at the San Luis Obispo City Council meeting Tuesday night. 

One of the items council members will vote on is the final settlement between local firefighters and the city regarding overtime pay, stemming from a 2016 federal lawsuit against San Luis Obispo city. 

Union leaders are looking to settle the dispute, which could leave taxpayers in charge of paying about $54,000 in fees. 

The final environmental impact report (EIR) for a parking garage in downtown San Luis Obispo will also be reviewed at the meeting. 

The proposed Palm Nipomo parking structure is expected to be five-stories high, with about 445 parking spaces, a 5,000 square-feet commercial space and a 24,00 square-feet non-profit theatre with up to 290 theatre seats. 

The city will also be updating the EIR for the proposed San Luis Ranch project, that will also allow for them to consider a new city ordinance that will allow the type of development the project entails, such as 580 residential units,150,000 square-feet of commercial space, 100,000 square-feet of office, a 200-room hotel, 2.8 acres of parks, with 60 acres of the site for agriculture. 

The meeting is Tuesday at 6 p.m., at the city council chamber, located at 990 Palm St., San Luis Obispo, and is open to the public. Check out the agenda here
