QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION

Mayor McPoland opened a question and answer session with members of the audience.

Ike Martinez, Lynn Drive, Brentwood, made the recommendation that Mayor McPoland give a State of the City Address once a year to inform the citizenry of City goals, accomplishments and to increase awareness of city government. 

Mayor McPoland commented that he had already been considering doing a State of the City Address in February.

Anna Kelley, 1770 Kent Drive, congratulated the Council on their proactive work to increase fire services in Brentwood. 

Charlie Persiner, Summerset resident, asked for an update on the status of the Safeway Project on Balfour and Fairview. 

Mitch Oshinsky, Director of Community Development, replied that the project is currently going through an environmental review process and should be going to the Planning Commission in March.

Mr. Persiner also asked regarding a 10-acre park near Summerset. 

Craig Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation, responded that the funding for that park is not in the 2002/2006 Capital Improvement Plan.

Anna Kelley asked when the Highway 4 Bypass would be opening.

Councilmember Gomes responded that the Highway 4 Bypass is scheduled to open in the month of March.

Ms. Kelley also commented that traffic on Vasco Road is becoming increasingly dangerous and asked if there are any plans to construct additional passing lanes coming towards Brentwood. 

Councilmember Gomes commented that approximately $13 million dollars have been allocated for the Vasco Road Safety Project. Several different scenarios are being explored to help improve safety on Vasco Road. Councilmember Gomes further commented that the most important component to any project is the availability of funding. Since the funds are available, the project should be moving forward.

Harriett Heiss, Bismark Lane, Brentwood, asked if the City is setting aside land for open space? 

Mayor McPoland commented that the City does have plans to set aside land for open space both within the City limits and agricultural land. The City is actively pursuing Ag Core preservation. While amenities will come to the City, we will be mindful of land preservation.

Ken Young, Alden Lane, Summerset III, commented that he would like to see careful consideration used in alternative fuel vehicles.

Mitch Oshinsky, Director of Community Development, responded that the City has looked at alternative fuel vehicles and that as the City replaces vehicles in it’s fleet, they are being replaced with alternative fuel vehicles. Mr. Oshinsky further stated that the City is hoping to set a positive example as people see the vehicles driving around the City.

Russ Mueller, Summerset, expressed concerns about impact of traffic on Fairview Avenue and Balfour Road when theHighway 4 Bypass opens.

Councilmember Gomes explained that the segment between Lone Tree Way and Balfour Road is segment two of the project. The original plan was to complete segment two first, then segment one and several years after that, segment three totaling a 15 – 20 year time span. The City Council objected to that and decided to do anything possible to get segments one and three done simultaneously in order to minimize the impact on Balfour Road. Senator Torlakson is working hard to get the segments done. Funding sources have been identified, but an eight-year timeline for a project of that magnitude would be very good.

Dick Riderblies, Summerset III, asked if there was anything that Council is doing for the small businesses downtown so they will survive the influx of big boxes moving into town.

Mayor McPoland commented that the City is conducting a Downtown Specific Study. Adequate parking is a problem and the Council will shortly be addressing some of the parking problems.

John Felston asked if there could be some ATM’s scattered around the downtown rather than in Bank Branches? 

Mayor McPoland commented that there are currently a few ATMs at other locations around town. 

PRESENTATIONS

A. Donna Gerber, District III Supervisor, stated that she was very glad to have a new office in Brentwood at 1200 Central Boulevard. Supervisor Gerber went on to highlight some of the transportation projects she has been working on to help alleviate congestion and increase safety including a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors to cosponsor legislation, with Senator Torlakson, which would establish a double-fine zone between Brentwood and the San Joaquin County line; establishing a daylight driving zone between Brentwood and Discovery Bay, insuring that fog lines are adequate and working to make improvements on Vasco Road. Supervisor Gerber is also on the East County Regional Library committee and announced that the committee has to almost a complete decision on how to spend the grant money that the library has received. Increase the hours of operation, purchase more books, computers. She also thanked Councilmember Beckstrand for her work on the committee. Supervisor Gerber announced that the Enterprise Agricultural task force will be holding a town hall meeting in the Spring, details will follow.

Councilmember Hill thanked Supervisor Gerber for her commitment to be in Brentwood, citing some of the obstacles she had to overcome to open her office here.

Supervisor Gerber commented that she recognized the fact that it is an unreasonable expectation to expect far-east bay constituents to travel to Danville or Walnut Creek to access their County Supervisor and she believes there needs to be a County Supervisor in the fastest growing part of the county. 

B. Tom Michelson, Assistant General Manager, East Bay Regional Park District, spoke in support Measure “K”. Currently, no property tax revenue goes to the Regional Park District. Measure “K” proposes a parcel tax of $1.00 per month for single-family homes and $.69 cents per month for multifamily residences to fund four major needs: environmental maintenance, public safety, resource protection/restoration, and public access. Some of the projects planned by the Park District are the refurbishing of Big Break Shoreline, Marsh Creek and Delta Deanza Trials, and the opening and operation of the Vasco Caves Regional Preserves.

C. Dr. Raul Rodriguez, President of Los Medanos College, spoke in support of Measure “A”, stating that Proposition 13 has had some long-term negative effects on Community Colleges. Measure “A” would provide Los Medanos with funds needed to build a new math science building, improve the quality of the parking lots and roads, remodel bathrooms and provide other needed improvements to the college. The cost to the average home would be approximately $14.00 per year.

D. Mike Davies, Chief of Police, gave an update on his recent graduation from the FBI National Academy. 

Mayor McPoland presented Police Chief Davies with an honorary plaque commemorating his accomplishments and distinguished him as the first police officer from the City of Brentwood to graduate from the FBI National Academy.

PUBLIC HEARINGS

15. Consideration of an appeal for Conditional Use Permit No. 01-08, to construct a church located at the northeast corner of Fairview Avenue and Central Boulevard. Continued from January 8, 2002.

Jeff Zilm, Associate Planner, gave a brief overview of the Conditional Use Permit No. 01-08, to construct a Catholic Church located at the northeast corner of Fairview Avenue and Central Boulevard. Mr. Zilm further explained that Mr. Glenn Sobolik filed an appeal citing inadequate parking for the build-out and a lack of continuing notification during the approval process. Mr. Zilm pointed out that the number of parking spaces actually exceeds the required number of parking spaces. Mr. Zilm then detailed the dates of notification prior to each Planning Commission meeting and explained that the City met all legal requirements of notification.

Mayor McPoland explained that the only issues to be discussed and the only issues Council could deliberate on are the issues stated in the appeal: 

1. Lack of parking in phase one of the build-out.
2. Lack of notification during the approval process.

Glen Sobolik, appellant, 369 Wintergreen Drive, Brentwood, stated that the purpose of his appeal is not to impede the building of the church but rather to address the issue of attendance numbers. He commented that while the plans were approved at a seating capacity of 550 seats, the actual attendance numbers will be closer to 900. Mr. Sobolik also expressed concern over the ingress and egress from the parking lot onto both Fairview and Central Avenues stating that the original traffic studies were done prior to the relocation of the church to the west side of the property.

The following individuals spoke in favor of the appeal:

Don Ferguson, 820 Rutherford Circle, Brentwood
Gary Milano, 2855 Honeysuckle Circle, Brentwood
Alan Cravaluo, 990 Darby Drive, Brentwood
Robert Burke, 4726 Appaloosa Ct., Antioch
Anna Kelley, 1770 Kent Drive, Brentwood

The following individuals spoke in opposition to the appeal:

Eric Bustos, 1331 Panwood Ct., Brentwood
Jim Hopwood, 5508 Sandmound Blvd., Oakley
Delma Webb, 2370 Sunset Road
Veronica Roche, 1725 Duchess Terrace, Brentwood
Larry Borello, 1761 Kent Drive, Brentwood
Terrill Wade, 1345 8th St., Berkley, architect for the project

There being no one else wishing to speak the public hearing was closed. 

Mayor McPoland asked John Stevenson, City Manager, to address the parking issue and the ingress and egress onto the property.

Mr. Stevenson commented that traffic flow in and out of the parking lot was studied in detail during the decision to relocate the church to the west side of the lot. Mr. Stevenson further stated that staff is confident that the ingress and egress out of this church is adequate and properly located.

Councilmember Hill stated that the relocation of the church was a result of the Housing Subcommittee. He explained the process involved in the design in the relocation of the Church and felt very confident that it is in the best location. Councilmember Hill also pointed out that the traffic volumes quoted are weekday and not Sunday volumes, which are significantly, lower than throughout the week.

Mayor McPoland further commented that one reason for the relocation of the church was to lesson the impact on the surrounding residential neighborhoods. He also stated that Braddock and Logan did not have enough points under the current guidelines to qualify for any type of development and by moving the church to the west, it enabled Braddock & Logan to do sewer & water extensions, road improvements and various other projects that qualify as community service thereby increasing their points and enabling them to develop their project.

Councilmember Beckstrand, stated that she felt the Planning Commission made the correct decision and she is in full support of the Planning Commissions decision.

Mr. Zilm also commented that staff has provided the definition of “A” Weighting in the amended staff report as requested by Council at the January 8, 2002 meeting.

Councilmember Petrovich read from a recent study the definition of an “A” Weighted network and concluding that the “A” weighted network is not the most accurate way to measure noise. He also stated that he would not oppose the Ordinance but felt that the City would not be able to enforce it.

Karen Rogge, 2321 Windy Springs, commented that she had dirt bikes and quads and hoped they were not over the decibel limit.

There being no one else wishing to speak the public hearing was closed. 

Mitch Oshinsky, Director of Community Development, concurred with Mr. Zilm’s comments outlining the extensive research staff has done into “A” weighting and further stated that 32 other cities in the state are using “A” Weighting as the standard. Mr. Oshinsky then commented that he feels comfortable using that as the standard. 

Mayor McPoland asked how the City would be able to enforce the ordinance.

Dennis Beougher, City Attorney, explained that while it might be difficult to enforce, it is better to have an ordinance that is similar to other cities. It makes it easier for courts to understand.

Mr. Beougher explained that this public hearing is a requirement under the internal revenue code and does not provide any guarantee that the Shady Willows project will be approved by the City. This action simply puts us on a priority list with the state.

The public hearing was opened. 

Karen Rogge, 2321 Windy Springs, Brentwood, asked why this was a public hearing.

Mr. Beougher further explained that this public hearing, which is required by the IRS, will make it possible for the City to receive funding in the future should the project ever come to fruition.

OLD BUSINESS

19. Reconsideration of conceptual park design for Balfour Road Park, CIP 522-5221 to include a community building.

Craig Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation, asked direction from Council as to how to proceed with the conceptual park design for Balfour Road Park, CIP 522-5221 with regards to the inclusion of a community building.

After some discussion, Mayor McPoland commented that he would like to keep the original design for the Balfour Road Park and another location for the P.A.L. facility.

Councilmember Gomes stated that the funds are not available and that his recommendation to City staff should be to move ahead with the original plan.

Jeff Schultz, 1595 Dawnview Drive, Brentwood, spoke out in favor of a community center. Mr. Schultz stated that the advantage he saw to having the center at the Pool Complex would reduce support costs.

Craig Bronzan remarked that the School District has space at their High School Number Three for a community building.

Mayor McPoland concurred that he too has spoken with the School District and was pleased to see they had left space for the building but the funding was not there.


Councilmember Hill suggested that perhaps if the building were not located on the school property, it could also be used to hold fundraising events that cannot be held at school locations because alcohol is served.

Council directed staff to move forward with their original plan for the Balfour Road Park.

NEW BUSINESS

20. Approve a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to approve a contract with the East Diablo Fire Protection District in the amount of $784,000 for costs associated with the increase of 24-hour firefighter crews in Brentwood Fire Station Nos. 52 and 54 from two firefighters to three firefighters. Pulled per staff request.

21. Conflict of interest issues regarding City Council Members in relationship to proposed Redevelopment Plan Amendment process. 

Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Analyst, reviewed a decision made by Council on October 23, 2001, to seek an opinion letter from the FPPC to determine if Councilmembers Hill, Petrovich and Mayor McPoland could participate in decisions regarding amendment of the merged Redevelopment plans in the City of Brentwood. 

The response from the FPPC was that the councilmembers each have an economic interest that will be affected materially by decisions regarding the amended plans and therefore should not vote. Ms. Rozenski then asked Council to invoke the “Rule of Necessity” to bring back one City Council/Redevelopment Agency Member by randomly selecting pieces of paper from a box. This action is necessary because a quorum cannot be achieved due to disqualifications of three members based upon conflicts of interest. She further stated that recent inquiries by the FPPC indicate that Mayor McPoland’s disqualification may be revoked and if this happens, he will replace the voting member randomly selected in the drawing.

Mayor McPoland drew the marked paper and will be the qualifying voting member. 

22. Approve a Resolution determining that formation of a Project Area Committee is necessary for the Proposed Amendment to the Brentwood and North Brentwood Redevelopment Plans, and approving and adopting procedures for the formation and election of a Project Area Committee.

Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Analyst, presented a resolution determining the formation of a Project Area Committee to review the amendment and prepare a written recommendation to the Council. Ms. Rozenski explained that as a prerequisite to the adoption of a redevelopment plan amendment that may permit the power of eminent domain to acquire residential properties, the California Community Redevelopment Law mandates that residential owner occupants and tenants, business owners, and community organizations be given the opportunity to form a Project Area Committee (“PAC”) to formally consider the proposed redevelopment plan amendment and to report its recommendations to the Redevelopment Agency and the City Council for their consideration prior to adoption of the amendment. Ms. Rozenski recommended the formation of a seven-member committee consisting of two owner-occupants residential, two tenant-occupied residential, two business owners and one community organization. 

RESOLUTION NO. 2453

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BRENTWOOD APPROVING AND ADOPTING PROCEDURES FOR THE FORMATION OF AND ELECTION OF MEMBERS TO A PROJECT AREA COMMITTEE FOR THE MERGED BRENTWOOD AND NORTH BRENTWOOD REDEVELOPMENT PLANS

It was moved/seconded by Gomes/Beckstrand that the full reading of Resolution 2453 be waived and that the same be adopted as recommended by staff. Motion passed by the following vote:
