PUBLIC COMMENTS (07:27 PM)

Assemblyman Guy Houston presented an update on the State budget, which had been passed without new taxes, and he spoke about special legislative sessions scheduled on water policy and health care. He said he supported the proposal for new reservoirs in California, and there were plans for conservation and restoration efforts, and environmental enhancements.

The following Summerset residents spoke regarding landscaping for the soundwall and weeds and debris by the Highway 4 Bypass:

Jim McNary
Linda Rezac
Susan Zinzer
Debra O’Brien
Center Case
Ursula Modeleski
Shirley Quinlan
Tom Davidson

Beth Pforr spoke about conservation of land for birds and wildlife. She invited citizens to join her in forming a group for the interest of the birds and wildlife.

Wes Tilton, Marine Corp. League 1155, spoke about the Palo Alto Polytrauma Clinic and thanked community for support. He asked the City to forgive the $350 paid for the booth at Cornfest to pay for the Christmas benefit at the Polytrauma Clinic, and he thanked the community for the Toys for Tots program.

Larry Stratton spoke regarding conditions of approval for Mission Peak Subdivision (TSM 8470). He felt noise levels were unacceptable and beyond the 60 decibels and spoke about master drainage relating to mitigation impacts on existing agricultural uses for irrigation. He felt no provisions had been made for drainage of his property after the soundwall was installed. His water had to cross his next door neighbor’s property to disperse and there was no means for water drainage. He felt the work had not been completed by Mission Peak, and he urged the City to think twice about accepting the improvements for Subdivision 8470.

Dana Dean spoke regarding the acceptance of Amber Park improvements and said she represented Dave and Phillis Biddle and Friends of Ag in Brentwood. She asked Council not to accept the improvements as completed as she felt several of the conditions of approval had not been met. She spoke about the soundwall, drainage, the west side agricultural land, the bus stop and shelter, glare of lights and pocket parks. She asked for Council to direct staff to meet with the developer to resolve issues.

Dave Biddle spoke about TSM 8470 regarding glare, noise, and bus service. He presented a history of the item and said he felt the Initial Study, Mitigated Negative Declaration for Tract 8470, did not include the additional road improvements on the west side of Empire Avenue and Amber Lane. He had asked the Planning Commission to deny the passage of Resolution 01-91 on the grounds that the Negative Declaration was incomplete since it did not address the design and construction of Empire Avenue and the significant impact it would have on the environment and the residents on the west side. He referred to the Planning Commission meeting of January 15, 2002, and spoke about the Negative Declaration and Environmental Impact Report. He referred to correspondence dated October 13, 2003, from Paul Eldredge, regarding improvements to Empire Avenue and environmental review. TSM 8470 had been approved over five years ago and he felt there were six to eight conditions of approval had not been satisfied by the City or Mission Peak homes.

Steve Tingdahl spoke about issues with drainage on his property, glare of street lights, the soundwall and noise from roadway with regard to TSM 8470. He said the water had to run out his driveway and asked that the items be investigated before the granting of conditions.

Dan Boatwright, representative of Roddy Ranch, had submitted correspondence from David Gold, Morrison & Forrester, asking Council to remove Item 22 from the agenda and continue the item to such a time that detailed information was obtained regarding raw water and whether the charges proposed should be imposed and whether they met the Nexus and Proposition 218 requirements. He did not believe there was enough information and had submitted a records request to the City. He asked the item be delayed until such time as the requested information was made available.

24. Consideration of an appeal filed by Sal Rahmany of the Planning Commission’s denial of a conditional use permit (CUP 07-18) to operate a check cashing business known as the Quick Check Cashing Store, located at 6660 Lone Tree Way (Suite 6), within Lone Tree Center. (H. Sword/E. Nolthenius)

Principal Planner, Erick Nolthenius, presented a staff report regarding the appeal of a Planning Commission decision of September 4, 2007, regarding a conditional use permit for a proposed check cashing business. A motion for approval had failed due to a 2 - 2 vote and one abstention, which meant the application was denied. The applicant had not submitted a detailed security plan for review with either the Police Department or Planning Commission and there were security concerns. The applicant then met with the Police Department and agreed to certain security measures and staff believed concerns relative to security had been addressed. One letter of opposition had been received and staff recommended Council adopt a Resolution approving the appeal, reversing the Planning Commission decision and approving Conditional Use Permit 07-18 for the Quick Check Cashing store. After hearing the appeal, should Council determine the recommended findings could not be made and the use permit should not be approved, the Council should state its reason or reasons and allow staff to prepare appropriate findings, reflecting any issues addressed by Council, and prepare a denial Resolution for Council for adoption at the next meeting.

Council Member Richey asked about security measures to mitigate a drain on resources.

Police Chief, Mark Evenson, stated these types of businesses were targets for a variety of crimes and he suggested the following items, which had been discussed with the applicant: installing surveillance cameras, bullet proof glass, enhanced security doors, anti shatter/anti penetration glass for windows and alarm systems.

Council Member Richey asked who would be responsible to maintain inspections over meeting the security conditions.

Police Chief, Mark Evenson, said that it would be the Police Department’s responsibility.

Council Member Richey asked if the business would have a higher propensity for the requirement of Police services.

Police Chief, Mark Evenson said it would.

Sal Rahmany, applicant for Quick Check Cashing Stores, said the issue of security had been discussed with the Police Department and he had done what had been recommended. He spoke about his businesses in Antioch and Concord and said he had not called their Police Departments even once. He felt the business was safe and secure because of the bulletproof windows and cage, an alarm system, and a hold up button. His family worked at the business and the business was his life.

Vice Mayor Brockman opened the public hearing.

Sandy Kleinman said the business was needed in the area and it offered a bill and money order service which was helpful. She felt the business owner had conducted the business in a very professional manner.


Ralph Martin, Managing Partner of the Winco Shopping Center, spoke on behalf of the applicant, Sal Rahmany. He said he would not want to bring in a problem tenant and he would be happy to work with the Police Department. If there were any issues, he would not want to renew the lease for Mr. Rahmany and would not allow him to be in the shopping center. Mr. Rahmany’s business would fill a need in that shopping center and was more than just check cashing services. He had spoken to Mr. Rahmany’s other businesses and landlords and there had never been an issue with him. He felt comfortable with the use.

Motion: Close the public hearing.

Moved by Richey, seconded by Stonebarger.

Vote: Motion carried 4-0.
Yes: Becnel; Brockman; Richey; Stonebarger
Absent: Taylor

Council Member Richey expressed his opposition and concerns regarding the proposed establishment.

Council Member Becnel asked the Police Department if there had been significant utilization of Police services at a check cashing business in the City.

Police Captain, James Martinez, said the Police Department had responded to the other check cashing business in the City for a variety of things including forgeries, stolen credit card issues, burglary, disabled alarm, and acts of violence.


Council Member Becnel said the business was handling a lot of cash and there was a need for that business in the City. If operation of the use resulted in conflicts pertaining to parking, noise, loitering, traffic, public safety, or other impacts, at the discretion of Community Development Director, the Conditional Use Permit may be referred to the Planning Commission for subsequent review at a public hearing. If necessary, the Planning Commission could modify or amend the conditions of approval to mitigate such impacts or may revoke said conditional use permit bound upon applicable findings. He said he would rather see the business come in since there was a need for it, and review Condition of Approval #14 after one year, and if there was a problem, the conditional use permit could be revoked.

Council Member Stonebarger asked about the security plan.

Police Chief, Mark Evenson, said the business owner had met with the Police Department and agreed to do a variety of things to enhance security of the facility. If all conditions were met, it would be adequate to the Police Department.

Council Member Stonebarger asked what would make a check cashing business go from a business license process into a conditional use permit process.

Director of Community Development, Howard Sword, said that the developer felt the check cashing business fell under the use of financial institution. As the Community Developer Director, he was unable to agree with that. When a business had the potential to have adverse affects that need additional conditions placed on them, it was an item to be moved from a permitted use to a conditional use.

Council Member Stonebarger said he did not want to approve a conditional use permit without having the ability to take it back if something went wrong. He was hesitant but in support of the check cashing business as long as there was a specific date and time for Council to review the business again. He asked to discuss the need for security guards and said if the business would be a drain on Police resources, it would need to be dealt with quickly.

Vice Mayor Brockman said he would entertain a motion with a one year time frame to review.

Council Member Becnel proposed approving the appeal filed by Sal Rahmany, with modifications to Condition of Approval Item #14 and that within 12 months, the Planning Commission shall review the Conditional Use Permit for compliance.

Vice Mayor Brockman asked the City Attorney if this was acceptable.

Assistant City Attorney, Karen Murphy, said that this was acceptable and the Planning Commission could review the Conditional Use Permit and any revocation would need to take place at a noticed public hearing at a different time.

Motion: Adopt Resolution 2007-233 of the City Council of the City of Brentwood approving an appeal filed by Sal Rahmany, reversing the decision of the Planning Commission denying Conditional Use Permit (CUP 07-18) and approving CUP 07-18 to allow the operation of a check cashing business known as the quick check cashing store, located at 6660 Lone Tree Way, Suite 6, within Lone Tree Center (APN 019-010-039), with modifications to Item 14 on the Conditions of Approval, that within 12 months, the Planning Commission shall review the Conditional Use Permit for compliance with these conditions of approval.
Moved by Becnel, seconded by Stonebarger.

No: Richey
