S.R. City Council Mtg Agenda, Nov 29th, 2016


Our thanks to our friend, Anne Seeley, of Concerned Citizens For Santa Rosa, for her analysis of this week's City Council meeting:

Friends:   There is no Study Session before the 4PM meeting.

6 Proclamations
    6.1 National Native American Heritage Month
    6.2 California Law Enforcement Challenge Award for Santa Rosa's Police Department.  The Police Chief will accept the award from the CHP.

  14.1 Fiscal Year 2015/16 Measure O Annual Report.  This measure was amended by the voters on November 8 to good effect. In the link below, there's information on how the money from the tax was spent.  It's interesting that the Violence Prevention Program was moved in Fiscal year 2016/17 from the City Manager's Office to the Office of Community Engagement. 

  14.3 Roseland Pre-Annexation Agreement and Annexation Application.
Starting in 2014 the City of Santa Rosa and the County have been negotiating a Pre-Annexation Agreement to address cost-sharing and other commitments necessary for annexation.  
In October of 2016 the Council approved the EIR, adopted the Roseland Area/Sebastopol Road Specific Plan and various pre-zonings and re-zonings. The recommendation by the City Manager's Office is that the Council approve the agreement with the County of Sonoma, adopt a resolution directing the Planning and Economic Development Department to file an application with LAFCO, the local agency formation commission, for annexation of 5 unincorporated County islands.  In the link, there 's lots of information about how much improvements are going to cost, along with a map of the areas to be annexed.

5PM Public Hearings

  15.2 Proposed Zoning Code Amendment to Allow Lodging - hotel or motel- land use upon approval of a Minor Conditional Use Permit for all properties in the city with the CO (Office Commercial) zoning.   This proposal is new to me.  It is perhaps meant to help with the glut of vacant office space we currently have.  The main areas on the map look like Bennett Valley and the Airway Drive area.

See you there!
