HOUSING AUTHORITY REQUEST Council considered a request by the Housing Authority to waive permit fees for project located at Toro and Islay Streets. Toby Ross, Community Development Director, briefly reviewed the Agenda Report (file no. 1032) and stated it was staff's recommendation as the City was a publicly supported agency with its own budget constraints it should not waive fees designed to cover the service cost for these application and inspection fees amounting to $7,700.00. . Rich Chubon, Director of the Housing Authority, explained that the Housing Authority was funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development to develop an additional 20 rental housing units at Islay and Toro Streets. HUD had instituted a new cost containment policy requiring the Housing Authority to reduce the amount of federal costs of that project by 12 %. The Authority, staff and architects had identified project cost reductions totaling $118,114.00 which could be made. One of the areas in which project costs could have been reduced would be the waiving of the development fees charged by both HUD and the City of San Luis Obispo. He was requesting that the city's $7,700 application and inspection fees be waived. . Terry Simons, representing local developers, urged the Council not to waive the fees but requested that if they were to elect to waive those fees that the funding be taken from the General Fund so as not to deplete the Community Development's fee portion of it as this would result in a reduction of gross revenue of which would be borne by the development community. On motion of Councilman Settle, seconded by Councilman Griffin, to deny the Housing Authority request for waiving of application and inspection fees. Councilman Griffin suggested the Administrative Officer be directed to write a letter to the Housing Authority explaining the Council's position. Councilwoman Dovey felt that staff should try to make every effort possible to help the Housing Authority by combining field services to help keep costs down. City Council Minutes Tuesday, June 15, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 8 Councilman Dunin agreed with the motion and felt that it would be precedent setting to waive fees for them and not other local agencies. Mayor Billig agreed and felt that it was not up to the City to help bail out State and Federal government, which is what we are constantly being asked to do daily. The City was also being hit with heavy budget restraints and although she supported the Housing Authority efforts with the 20 rental housing units and their attempt to.cut back on costs, she did not feel these cuts should be borne by the City. Motion carried on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmembers Settle, Griffin, Dovey, Dunin and Mayor Billig NOES: None ABSENT: None 5. DRAINAGE AND GRADING PLAN FOR MINOR SUBDIVISION 81 -291 Council considered a request to approve drainage and grading plan prior to final map approval for Minor Subdivision 81 -291 located at 274 Foothill Boulevard; R -1 zone; H. Eisemann, subdivider. Dave Romero, Public Services Director, briefly reviewed the staff report (file no. 430 -81 -291) and stated it was staff's recommendation that the grading and drainage plan be approved as submitted with the maintenance of drainage improvements by City upon recordation.of an easement to the City. Councilman Settle questioned if a full size flood were to occur what would be the,potential, for a water backup. 1 Dave Romero responded that - improvement of the.drainage channel was part of priority No.1 this year, which would eliminate the possibility of a backup. If the channel is not improved this summer, the chances were slim that a large storm would occur this next winter. Councilman Dunin questioned whether the maintenance of the drainage improvements should be the responsibility of the property owner instead of the City and what its effect would be. Dave Romero responded that he would have no problem if the property owner were to be responsible for the maintenance; however, should the property owner fail to carry out this responsibility, the City would do the work and bill for it. Mrs. Eisemann thanked the Council for their help and she explained that the property owners next door would.still have problems with their garage whether the grading and drainage plan were approved or not. She would have no problem being the responsible party for the maintenance of the drainage improvements. On motion of-Councilwoman Dovey,•seconded by Councilman Settle, to approve the grading and drainage plan as submitted with the maintenance of the drainage improvements being the responsibility of the property owner. Motion carried, all ayes. 6. CREEK FLOOD CONTROL - !TRACT.592 A. Council considered a resolution approving an agreement with Nolte and Associates for review of alternative methods of flood protection. B. Council considered a resolution approving an agreement with MDW for services in conjunction with review of environmental impacts caused by widening San Luis Creek in Tract 592. Wayne Peterson, City Engineer, reviewed the Council Agenda Report (file no. 591) as well as a Creek Committee Report submitted by Council City Council Minutes Tuesday, June 15, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 9 Subcommittee members Allen Settle and Robert Griffin, which included staff members Paul Lanspery, Terry Sanville, Wayne Peterson and John Ashbaugh of MDW. The recommendation was to approve both the resolutions approving the contracts, the one with Nolte to be approximately $4,500.00 plus $700.00 each for four study sessions and MDW for $5,000.00. Councilman Settle stated that he was interested in looking at alterna- tives, especially in the areas of engineering feasibility, range of cost, clearances as opposed to widening and developing a better working relationship with the Fish & Game Department. Councilman Griffin stated that although an expansive scope to widen the creek did not receive his support, and he did not wish to spend more money for study on the creek, he would like to see this particular Council come to a decision after a thorough look at all options. He was interested in seeing that the innerface between the EIR and subsequent plan be made and if an additional action was required to give the information required for the decision making, then he would be support- ive of it. Terry Simons stated that he was encouraged that the Council was willing to pursue flood protection. He stated that the creek plan proposed does not address the flood issue but more on how to build a pipeline. He felt that water management needed to be further addressed, and he would hope the Council would look to reduce ways of additional water being - allowed to flow into the creek with the City looking to reverse the trend of allowing new developments to continue.putting additional constraints upon the creek. Councilwoman Dovey stated she was interested in receiving the background and history of past Councils' actions and information available for creek alternatives. She did not feel that four Council study sessions would be necessary, and she especially did not want to get into the engineering details of it. She was really interested in past background. Councilman Griffin felt that the Council needed a prompt realistic plan He would like fewer study sessions. He felt the Council had an obliga- tion to the public to get this information available. The recommended process, he felt, would do this and he could support the staff's recom- mendation. Councilman Dunin stated that the project is the result of the City's flooding in 1969 (15 years ago). He stated that Zone 9 was established for this very reason, and they came up with a master plan after reviewing many alternatives. One of the first changes of the City is to protect the City and its citizens, and he felt that taking -15 years to debate the plan and the EIR was too lengthy; and he would like to see faster action on this project. Concerns regarding Tract 592 and the impacts on the fish, he felt, was more the responsibility of the Fish & Game Department. He would be opposed to having an additional report made. He felt all the information was already available. He did not feel that the consultant needed to come in for a presentation more than once. This could be accomplished more easily if the consultant were to prepare a written report that the Council could read and make comments on. He also did not feel that $200,000.00, presently budgeted, was sufficient for flood control. Councilman Settle felt that if the city was going to preserve the creeks, the EIR was necessary, and he would.support it. Mayor Billig agreed that one evening session from 7:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. with Wayne or Nolte making the presentation and an additional noon study session would be sufficient to finalize an option that the Council could take. 1 1 1 City Council Minutes Tuesday, June 15, 1982 - 7:00 p.m. Page 10 Council discussed whether the city staff had the time to make the presentation for Nolte or if it would be necessary to bring the consul- tant in. Wayne Peterson stated that staff would be in a position to make the presentation; however, any updating and responding comments received by Council from the public should be given to the consultant. He felt the consultant would have a better handle on dollar estimates for the Project. Dave Romero suggested hiring the consultant to prepare a management report with the basic background and figures. Paul Lanspery, Administrative Officer, agreed that the consultant could be hired as a technical help to the staff. Council also discussed the proposed scope of services and amendments they would like made to it. On motion of Councilman Settle, seconded by Councilwoman Dovey, to approve the resolution of agreement with Nolte and Associates with an amendment to the agreement that only two meetings would be required and. staff would do the basic presentation with Nolte to do the background paperwork and meet with the Fish & Game Department as to their concerns as well as deleting Exhibit B, "scope of services ". After brief discussion, motion was withdrawn. On motion of Councilwoman Dovey, seconded by Councilman Settle, the following resolution was introduced: Resolution No. 4867 (1982 series), a resolution of the Council of the City of San Luis Obispo approving an agreement with MDW to conduct studies of the Tract 592 Creek widening. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmembers Dovey, Settle, Griffin and Mayor Billig NOES: Councilman Dunin ABSENT: None 7. VIDEO GAME ARCADE Council then considered a report from the City Attorney concerning suggested regulations on electronic game amusement centers. George Thacher, City Attorney, briefly reviewed the report previously submitted (file no. 705) concerning regulations for video game amusement centers. Mayor Billig suggested that the Council review the 19 suggestions listed by the Attorney as these may be added as a part of a permanent ordinance to be brought back to Council. Mr. Thacher also explained that if Council were to direct him to prepare a permanent ordinance, they should also direct him to prepare an extension to the present Moratorium Ordinance (No. 922) which expires July 9, 1982. Mayor Billig suggested Councilmembers submit suggestions and revisions to the scope of services to her. She would then get together with staff and a new scope of services and agreement with suggested amendments would come back to the Council at one of the study sessions later in the month. After brief discussion and upon general consensus, Council agreed to go with the Mayor's recommendation. On motion of Councilwoman Dovey, seconded by Councilman Settle, the following resolution was introduced: Resolution No. 4867 (1982 series), a resolution of the Council of the City of San Luis Obispo approving an agreement with MDW to conduct studies of the Tract 592 Creek widening.
