CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 19

Meeting Date: August 26, 2003

Subject/Title: Appointment of City Council Alternate Representative to East Contra Costa County Habitat Conservation Plan Association Executive Governing Committee

Submitted by: Community Development Department (M. Oshinsky/ W. Rhodes)

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION
Select Ana Gutierrez to serve as the City Council alternate representative on the Executive Governing Committee (EGC) of the East Contra County Habitat Conservation Plan Association (HCPA).

PREVIOUS ACTION
On January 9, 2001 the City Council appointed Council Member Hill to represent the City and Council Member Petrovich to serve as the alternate on the HCPA EGC.

BACKGROUND
Council Member Gutierrez has expressed a desire to serve as alternate and Council Member Petrovich is comfortable with this change. The City agreed to participate in the preparation of a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) for east Contra Costa County with the understanding that the City’s participation in the HCP formulation does not obligate the City to adopt the HCP after its preparation or provide any funding without further Council authorization. The following other agencies are currently participating in the preparation of an East Contra Costa County HCP: the City of Clayton, City of Pittsburg, Contra Costa County, Contra Costa Water District, and East Bay Regional Park District.

The EGC meets quarterly or as needed and leads the preparation of a HCP for consideration by each agency’s governing body. Meetings normally take place in Pittsburg at 5:30pm on the third Thursday of the month when the EGC meets. The major duties of the EGC include the following:

 Govern and operate the HCPA;

 Provide policy direction in the preparation of the East Contra County HCP and related documents;

 Approve a budget for developing the HCP submitted by member agency staff, and ratification of all checks, warrants, and related documents used in the expenditure of HCPA funds since the previous meeting;

 Approve the retention of agents and consultants, and execution of any agreements and contracts with regulatory agencies and other outside parties necessary to develop the HCP;
 Oversee compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and other laws applicable to the development of an HCP; and

 Consider approval of the HCP, the Implementation Agreement for the completed HCP, and related documents before such documents are submitted to the individual member agencies with land use planning authority for final approval.

FISCAL IMPACT
No additional costs are anticipated by changing the City’s alternate representative to the HCPA EGC.
