(Each year, city staff prepares an annual report to the State on the City’s progress in implementing the 1999-2006 Housing Element using the format drafted by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).  Beginning this year, State law requires that the City hold a public hearing on the report prior to submitting it to the HCD)

 

 

 

 

VII.      OLD BUSINESS

 

 

 

            A.  Consider January 2009 Revised Geotechnical and Geological Investigation 3710-3760 Bayshore Boulevard and determine whether any changes in the conditions of approval are appropriate, and provide direction to staff as necessary to implement these changes  THIS ITEM HAS BEEN CONTINUED TO MARCH 2, 2009)

 

 

 

            B.   Consider adoption of Ordinance No. 534, waiving second reading, amending Chapter 17.02 of the Zoning Regulations and the SP-CRO Sierra Point Commercial District Regulations to permit Child Care Centers and approve Mitigated Negative Declaration; Walmart.com applicant; APN 007-164-010 & -020, 007-165-110 & -120

 

                  (Walmart.com proposes to open a child care center for its employees and other people.  There are four potential locations developed within office buildings at Sierra Point.  The child care center would either be inside the building or built as an addition.  Because the SP-CRO Sierra Point Commercial District regulations do not provide for such a use, the Zoning Ordinance must first be amended for any proposal to proceed.)

 

 

 

            C.  Consider adoption of Ordinance No. 537, waiving second reading, adding Chapter 17.31 to the Municipal Code pertaining to affordable housing

 

                  (State law requires the City adopt density bonus provisions.  The City’s Housing Element also calls for adopting inclusionary housing requirements.  The recommended ordinance combines the two.  It is the result of many study sessions by the City Council and Planning Commission, with input from the City’s consulting attorney’s Polly Marshall and Barbara Kautz.)

 

            D.  Consider adoption of Resolution No. 2009-06 establishing a policy for development projects to include a renewable energy component

E.      Consider approval of the Parks, Beaches and Recreation Commission’s recommendation on the Volunteer of the Year Plaque

 

                  (On October 6, 2008 the City Council heard a recommendation from the Parks, Beaches, and Recreation Commission to place a Volunteer of the Year Plaque in the Community Park.  The Council supported the idea but requested that the P.B.&R. consider a different location for the plaque.  They are now recommending that the plaque be placed at City Hall.)

 

 

 

VIII.     NEW BUSINESS

 

 

 

A.     Consider adoption of Resolution No. 2009-05 regarding the Peninsula Partnership on Children Bill of Rights

 

                  (At a recent City Council meeting representatives of the Peninsula Partnership Leadership Council asked that the Council consider adopting the Children and Youth Bill of Rights.  Staff met with PPLC’s Director and the County Youth Commissioner to discuss the document and process.  Brisbane’s Youth Advisory Committee also reviewed the document and unanimously endorsed recommending adoption by the City Council.)

 

 

 

B.     Consider report on the current security issues with the City’s Website and give direction to staff

 

(The Council will hear a report on the ongoing security issues with the City’s current website as well as a grant that has been received that might be utilized to build an improved website that will be the community’s go-to spot for the latest information about the City.)

 

 

 

            C.     Provide direction to staff regarding priorities of projects which the City is requesting funds from the Federal Government
