S.R. City Council Meeting Agenda, March 7th


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

7. Proclamations and Presentations
7.1 Women's History Month.  In this proclamation, credit is given to the National Women's History Project, and their birth 37 years ago of the National Women's History Month.  

8.  Staff Briefings
8.1 Artspace Market Study of Artists', Creative Individuals' and Arts Organizations' Space Needs and Preferences.  In their report to the Council, the consultants indicate that the survey was completed by 394 individuals and 47 organizations and businesses. The results of the survey reflect a need for art-focused spaces of all types in Santa Rosa including:

  • Affordable live/work space for artists/creative individuals and their families; 
  • Studio and creative work spaces for artists; 
  • Permanent spaces for arts and cultural organizations; and 
  • Event, gallery, administrative, educational, shared/co-working, and other types of spaces for organizations and businesses to rent or utilize on a short-term or occasional basis. 
Consent Items
13.1 RESOLUTION - EXTENSION OF PROCLAMATION OF LOCAL HOMELESS EMERGENCY RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the Housing and Community Services Department that the Council, by resolution, approve an extension of Resolution No. 28839 which formally proclaimed a local homeless emergency within Santa Rosa.Community

The staff report includes twelve important community conditions effecting the health and safety of our homeless, and concludes: "These conditions continue to pose extreme peril to the safety of persons and property within the territorial limits of the city, thus necessitating the continuation of the proclamation of local homeless emergency at this time."

Report Items
15.1 & 15.2 are two separate, but similar items which place before the Council the decisions to call for an election on June 6th to allow City voters to enact a rent control & stabilization ordinance delayed since last fall, and a new tax on cannabis operations in Santa Rosa.

There is also a special meeting of the City Council, called for this Friday from 9am to 4pm, at the Hilton, 3555 Round Barn Rd.  Here is the agenda.  It would appear that residents wanting to influence the goals of the Council in the next year should be prepared to speak at the "Public Comments" period at the beginning of the meeting.
