Mayor Dunin requested the Council listen to public comment and proceed page by page through the document with suggestions for amendments. (Please see File No. 463 for specific changes.) Keith Gurnee. 108 Broad Street, stated that he was appearing as a private citizen and as a representative of RRM. He did not feel sufficient time had been made available to review the document and requested a 24 week review period prior to Council taking action. Eva J. Hill requested clarification to the language on Page 7 -7 regarding the Perfuma Creek area. Upon question, staff agreed that the change should be made consistent with previous Council direction. Vic Montgomery, 3026 S. Higuera St. and representing various property owners, questioned whether the comments made this evening would be forwarded to the consultant. He felt it was important that the comments being made tonight would be addressed and part of the EIR. If it was not going to be considered, then he did not believe that the document was going to be worth much. Specifically, he requested that agriculture clustering be included. He also had concerns on Page 10 - E.3 regarding the inclusion of voter.approval. City Council Meeting Page 2 Monday, January 13, 1992 - 7:00 P.M. Gil Hoffman. 987 Capistrano Court, stated that as an Open Space Committee member and Planning Commissioner responded to Mayor Dunin's earlier concern that the open space definition was fairly clear in the document and urged the Council to accept it as stated. Also, he expressed concern on page 26 regarding density calculations, that any portion of the property that cannot be built on, should not be counted in the density calcs. Dave Garth. Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce, did not believe that most of the concerns previously expressed regarding the economic issues had been adequately addressed in the draft document. Charles Senn. El Cerrito Court and speaking on behalf of the Property Owners Association, urged the Council provide sufficient review time for them to comment on the document. Rob Strong expressed concern that the draft document was only recommending a 1% growth rate when the County was growing at a 2.5% rate. He did not feel this would support the City as the regional shopping area for the County. He also reviewed concerns about residential clustering from 5 -10 acre to 10 -20 acres; that statements on pages 34 & 35 of the document concerning what was considered a flood plain would make it almost impossible to build anywhere within the City relative to required setback requirements. Regarding Page 42 Public Facilities Area, he thought this should have been rejected; Page 51 Maino /Madonna Area, the Marsh Street interchange, these policies should not be endorsed. Page 64, he felt there was a lack of alternatives. Lynn Block BIA Administrator - 1108 Garden Street, (page 39) urged the Council to allow two-stories in the downtown area and felt that the non - density growth mangement rate was too low. Carla Sanders felt that this plan would allow excessive build out. She was also concerned that the City protect clean air and open space; that this document could provide annexation of 1,000+ acres and supported voter approval of any annexations. 9:05 P.M. Mayor Dunin declared a recess. 9Z0 P.M. City Council reconvened; all City Councilmembers present. Don Smith urged change on Page 20 regarding Air Quality. Charles Senn, again representing the airport area, felt that the growth rate needs to be accumulative; that there needs to be more visionary statements relative to the economic base; and overall encouraged that staff be directed that when interpreting this document, let common sense prevail. Dottie Connor, representing Neighborhoods for Quality Preservation, thanked the Council and urged them to leave the wording as indicated on page 30. Dana Lilv, representing County Planning, stated the County was planning to hold a Joint Meeting with the County and City to review each other's drafts within the next couple of months. Mayor Dunin expressed concern that the minutes and the synopsis from previous meetings had not been made available for this meeting.
