CALL TO ORDER ADJOURNED CITY COUNCIL MEETING (4:02 PM)
Present: Beckstrand; Gutierrez, Hill; Petrovich; Swisher
1. Approve a Resolution selecting one of the three 50% schematic designs for
the New City Hall Project and direct staff to move forward with the full
design of the project based on the design criteria as presented during the
City Council Workshop for the New City Hall, CIP Project No. 337-3139
Director of Economic Development, Howard Sword, said that staff
recommendation was for Schematic Design B. He added that staff was committed
to working with Council, community and the public to build a library and
elements in the community center.
Mayor Swisher asked about the general plan and the architects. Director
Sword said that all of the elements in the New City Hall Project would need
to work together with the general plan. Architects KMD and Friedman, Young
and Bottomley would work together.
Council Member Gutierrez requested that a community informational event be
held on the project for the public. She did not want to move forward without
having that event and asked that the project be done in the context of the
downtown specific plan.
Director Sword said that the information could be placed in the Brentwood
Press and even though there had been a lot of publication, there needed to
be direct outreach to the community.
Council Member Petrovich said he believed that the scheme removed the
existing Community Center and he was not in favor of the project.
Council Member Gutierrez asked if there was an agreement made regarding
removal of the Community Center.
City Attorney, Dennis Beougher, explained that staff research indicated
there was no prohibition about the building. A title report had been done
and nothing showed up in the record indicating that it would be prohibited.
Council Member Gutierrez would like to reassess the plans and feasibility
sites and would move forward if staff did not find anything.
Council Member Petrovich said he would support the New City Hall at the site
across from the new Police Department.
Mayor Swisher added that he believed the best site was here.
Motion: Approve waiving full reading and adopting Resolution No. 2004-52,
approving the Scheme B Alternative, as recommended by staff.
