Santa Rosa City Council Mtg, June 2nd


Anne Seeley, of Concerned Citizens for Santa Rosa, has summarized tomorrow's Santa Rosa City Council agenda for us:

There is a study session today starting at 1:30.
3.1 The Santa Rosa Violence Prevention Partnership (Partnership) Community Safety Scorecard.    The Partnership used to be the Mayor's Gang Task force.  The scorecard was created as a tool to plan, strategize and measure the longterm impacts of Partnership efforts at a neighborhood level. It uses a Public Health approach of assessing the root causes of violence, with a focus on 4 domains:  Economic Conditions, School Conditions, Crime and Safety and Family and Community Connections.   Staff will present the draft scorecard.

4PM meeting
Proclamations and Presentations:
6.1 Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra
6.2 Neighborhood Revitalization Program Literacy Project
6.3 The Department of Housing and Urban Development High Performing Agency Award.

7 Staff briefings
7.1 The Russian River Watershed Association.  Santa Rosa Participates with 10 other Sonoma County agencies in this .  See below:

There are 3 Consent Items

13.1 ADA Paratransit Services Contract Award.   The service, which is apart from the City's fixed-route Bus System is required by the Americans with Disabilities Act.  After a Request for Proposals (RFP) process was carried out, the City has chosen to stay with the current provider.   The services are funded through federal and State grants.

13.3 A Place To Play Master Plan Amendment.  This park on West 3rd Street was approved in 1996.  It has multiple soccer fiends, and baseball diamonds for all ages.  It was created on a piece of City land where there used to be treated wastewater holding ponds.   In recent years an off-leash dog park and a remote control car track were added, but not codified in the plan.  This proposal does that and also changes the siting of the new additions in response to neighborhood complaints about dogs barking.

13.5 Stony Point Road Widening from Sebastopol Road to Hearn Avenue contract award.  The cost is $1,864,726.16, not to come from the City's General Fund.

On the last item, I'll add that the contract includes a community outreach component, following a communications work plan, and utilizing Jacqueline Majors and Associates.  The Contract bid states "The Harris team will combine our outreach efforts with any other standing or proposed public outreach program initiated by the City."  SRT will be working with the subcontractor to fully engage the community in understanding and impacting the project.
