S.R. Council Agenda, March 8th, 2016


Many thanks to our friend, Anne Seeley of Concerned Citizens for Santa Rosa:

There are no study sessions before this meeting.

4PM Meeting
Among Consent items is this:  11.3 An Ordinance to Allow Cannibis Cultivation in several industrial zone categories, with a conditional Use Permit. Find the ordinance below:

13.1 Sonoma County Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Financing Marketplace.  In 2009 the City Council approved the city's participation in the Sonoma County Energy Independence Program (SCEIP), which is a type of PACE program.  In 2014 the county created the Sonoma County PACE Financing Marketplace, expanding the financing options available to property owners.  The Council is offerer several choices, which are explained in the link below:

13.2 Amend the Art In Public Places.  Currently the Art in Public Placed Committee (APPC) is comprised of a combination of 4 members of City Boards and Commissions, 2 Council members and 4 public at-large members and there is a Public Art Master Plan in place.  There is interest in revamping much of the Public Art Policy and in changing the method of selection of the at-large public members to the way in which other Board and Commission members are selected - by individual Council members.  
The Council has several selections in the way they can go ahead:

5PM Public hearings
14.2 Appeal of the Planning Commission's approval on 12/10/15 of the proposed addition in Oakmont of a complex of 4 multi-use sport courts, along with a reduction in parking.
As you might expect, the stress is on parking, with the appellants' contention that one notice of the planning Commission's planned proceedings didn't include the words "with a reduction in parking".   The courts would likely be used for pickleball.

Upcoming meetings:

See you there!   Anne
