RECOMMENDATION
Set a special public hearing date of Wednesday, November 16, 2005, at 6:00 p.m. for the City Council to hear testimony and to consider approval of the Downtown Specific Plan.

PREVIOUS ACTION
In 2002, the City Council directed staff to undertake a specific plan for the Downtown with the primary objective to coordinate public and private investment to fulfill the community’s intention for the Downtown to remain the heart of Brentwood, and to guide growth and change in the Downtown to preserve and enhance the Downtown as a district that offers types of services, conveniences, experiences and lifestyle choices that are not found elsewhere within the City.

In March 2003, a contract was awarded to Freedman, Tung and Bottomley to prepare the Specific Plan.

In October 2003, the City held the first of six community workshops, culminating with a Planning Commission and City Council joint session on August 18, 2004 to present all the information that was gathered from the workshops and to get consensus and direction.

A public review draft of the Downtown Specific Plan and its Environmental Impact Report was released for a 45-day comment period on July 14, 2005, ending August 26, 2005.

BACKGROUND
The Planning Commission heard public testimony and took action on the Downtown Specific Plan on October 4, 2005, related to the Environmental Impact Report, Mitigation Monitoring Plan, General Plan Text and Map Amendment, and Rezone Amendment to the Zoning Ordinance.

In light of the cancellation of Council meetings on November 22 and December 27, 2005, staff requests the Council set a special public hearing date on Wednesday, November 16, 2005, at 6:00 p.m., to consider the Planning Commission recommendations and to hear testimony from staff, consultants and the general public on the Downtown Specific Plan.

FISCAL IMPACT
None
