CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 12

Meeting Date: January 11, 2005

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution Accepting the First Annual RGMP Allocation Recommendation

Prepared by: Gail Leech, Management Analyst

Submitted by: Pamela Ehler, Director of Finance and Information Systems, Howard Sword, Director of Community Development, Bailey Grewal, City Engineer

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a resolution accepting the first annual RGMP Allocation Recommendation as submitted by the RGMP Allocation Recommendation Committee

PREVIOUS ACTION
On February 13, 2001, the City Council directed the City Council Housing Subcommittee and staff to move forward with preparation of the RGMP.

On June 27, 2001, the City Council Housing Subcommittee and staff recommended and the Council adopted the RGMP through Resolution No. 2326.

On September 14, 2004, the City Council asked staff to amend the proposed 2004 RGMP to address Council concerns.

On October 12, 2004, City Council approved Resolution No. 2004-242 adopting the 2004 revision to the Residential Growth Management Program (Alternate B) and dissolving the RGMP Council Subcommittee.

BACKGROUND
Pursuant to the Residential Growth Management Program, the proposed annual allocation and annual updates to this program will be presented to the City Council by the Finance Director, Community Development Director and the City Engineer (the RGMP Allocation Recommendation Committee) at the first regularly scheduled Council meeting of each calendar year to assure that this program remains flexible and adjusts to the needs of the community as the community evolves. In no case shall the Directors recommend an annual allocation in excess of 600 units.

The first annual RGMP Allocation report and recommendation dated October 12, 2004, is intended to meet the minimum number of units necessary to promote the health, safety and welfare, maintain the small-town character and quality of life Brentwood is known for. In particular, this first annual recommendation is intended to slow the current rapid growth rate and firmly establish a competition for the available allocations. The Committee recommended an initial allocation for 2005 of 433 lots (See attached Alternate “B”). Previous entitlements will assure far more than the 450 building permits in 2005 necessary for bond repayment schedules.

After review and discussion, the RGMP Allocation Recommendation Committee does not have any recommended revisions or updates to the signed recommendation brought to City Council and approved on October 12, 2004.

FISCAL IMPACT
