1. Purchase of Chamber of Commerce Building - (6550 El Camino Real)
Recommendations:
The City Council recommends the Agency Board:

1. Authorize the purchase of the building at 6550 El Camino Real for $10,000.00; and,

2. Appropriate $11,225.00 in Redevelopment Agency Funds for the purchase and maintenance of the building; and

3. Authorize the Executive Director to execute an agreement with Atascadero Main Street for the lease of the building at 6550 El Camino Real for $1.00 annually.

Fiscal Impact:
The total cost to the Agency is expected to be $11,225; $10,000 for the purchase of the building, $500 in repairs to the building, and $725 in sales tax for the purchase. The City will also experience a loss of the $1,000 lease payment annually. The Redevelopment Agency will receive a lease income of $1.00 annually from Atascadero Main Street.
Consistent with Board policy to “Not approve any new appropriations without the elimination or reduction of a currently budgeted project or program,” the Board eliminated the Downtown Pedestrian Bridge Project for a net reduction of $280,000. This proposed purchase falls within that net reduction and thus complies with the policy. [Executive Director]

 UPDATES FROM THE CITY MANAGER:


 COMMUNITY FORUM:
(This portion of the meeting is reserved for persons wanting to address the Council on any matter not on this agenda and over which the Council has jurisdiction. Speakers are limited to three minutes. Please state your name for the record before making your presentation. The Council may take action to direct the staff to place a matter of business on a future agenda. A maximum of 30 minutes will be allowed for Community Forum, unless changed by the Council.)

B. PUBLIC HEARINGS:


1.  PLN 2008-1314 - Dove Creek Commercial Center Amendment - Santa Barbara Road & El Camino Real (PMB Development Company)
Description: Approval would remove the restriction for indoor sales only for “farm equipment and supply uses” in the PD-12 overlay zone and would allow for the construction of a Tractor Supply Company store at the Dove Creek Commercial Center.

Ex Parte Communications

Fiscal Impact: The proposed amendments would permit the construction of a retail TSC store as an anchor for the Dove Creek Shopping Center. The City Council has identified economic development as the City’s highest priority. Retail commercial stores are typically one of the City’s best sources of revenue which is generated through sales tax. Due to economic conditions, the City’s overall sales tax revenues have been in decline. The proposed project would have a positive fiscal impact on the City by increasing sales tax revenues. The store would also serve as an anchor for the Dove Creek Shopping Center and is expected to attract additional retail stores in the future.

Recommendations: Planning Commission recommends Council:


1. Introduce for first reading, by title only, Draft Ordinance A amending the zoning code text for Planned Development #12 (Zone Change 2008-0151) to allow outdoor sales for farm equipment and supply establishments based on findings; and,
2. Adopt Draft Resolution A approving amendments to CUP 2003-0099 related to the Commercial Center Master Plan of Development, based on findings and subject to Conditions of Approval. [Community Development]

 Amended Motion

2.  PLN 2099-0997 Amendment to West Front Village - 9002 West Front Road & 9000-9092 Coromar Ct. (Shannon / West Front Village, LLC)
Description: Amendment to Master Plan of Development for West Front Village: commercial lot 1, residential lots, and conditions of approval; PD-23 Zone Text Change;Tentative Tract Map to amend the lot lines on residential lots 1-18
Ex Parte Communications


Fiscal Impact: Based on findings from the Taussig Study, revenue from new residential development including property tax revenues; vehicle licensing fees, sales taxes, and other revenues are insufficient to cover the maintenance and emergency services costs of new development. Based on the revenue projections from the Taussig Study, the City has developed standard conditions of approval for new development projects that require the cost of maintenance and emergency services to be funded by the project through a combination of road assessment districts, landscape and lighting districts, and community facilities districts (Conditions CUP 19 and 20/ TTM 12 and 13). Inclusion of these conditions of approval will mitigate any negative fiscal impact on the City.
Recommendations: Planning Commission Recommends Council:


1. Introduce for first reading, by title only, Draft Ordinance A approving Zone Code Text Change 2009-0152 (PLN 2099-0997) amending the PD-23 Overlay District Text consistent with the revised project design based on findings; and,


2. Adopt Draft Resolution A approving Master Plan of Development Amendment (CUP 2003-0108 Amendment / PLN 2099-0997) based on findings and subject to Conditions of Approval and Mitigation Monitoring; and,


3. Adopt Draft Resolution B approving Tentative Tract Map for Tract 2970 (PLN 2099-0997) based on findings and subject to Conditions of Approval and Mitigation Monitoring; and,


4. Give consideration to the three items that were presented to the Planning Commission by the applicant (Richard Shannon), including (1) the highway frontage landscape maintenance requirement, (2) clustering of affordable units and the option of paying in-lieu fees, and (3) a deferral agreement for the formation of a Community Facilities District. [Community Development]

 Motion and  Vote

C.  MANAGEMENT REPORTS:


1. CEQA and Climate Change - Overview of New State Legislature and Requirements - Greenhouse Gas Inventory and ICLEI
Fiscal Impact: The costs included in producing a GHG inventory would include the ICLEI membership ($600 annual fee) and staff time to compile and analyze the data for the inventory. Grant funding through the SLO APCD will provide a major contribution to completion of the inventory. PMC will act as the consultant in preparing and compiling the data. The SLO APCD also offered funds for Cal Poly interns to aid in the data collection. Some staff time will be required to validate the approach, and develop and manage the inventory It is staff’s expectation that GHG requirements from the State and Federal Government will continue to increase over the next few years. There will be an increased demand on resources to respond to these new requirements. At this time, the amount of staff time and cost of these future requirements is unknown.

Recommendations Council adopt Resolution A, authorizing the City to join ICLEI (Local Governments for Sustainability) and directing staff to work with PMC consulting firm and the San Luis Obispo Air Pollution Control District (SLO APCD) to conduct a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory for the City of Atascadero, consistent with Assembly Bill 32. [Community Development]

 Motion and  Vote


2.  Budget Plan 2009-2011
Fiscal Impact: The draft Budget will include reduced expenditures, increased revenues and use of reserves to bridge the $3.5 million gap.
Recommendation: Council receive and file the Budget Plan 2009-2011. [City Manager]
