Tenn Sanviile. Senior Planner, reviewed the agenda report (File No. 462) with the recommendation that after review of the final administrative draft Council to make any additional amendments as deemed appropriate and accept the draft Circulation Element for the purpose of initiating environmental review. He reminded the Council that on March 9, 1992 the Council had concluded is discussion of the 16 issues related to the Planning Commission's draft of the Circulation Element. Those additional amendments have been incorporated and were highlighted in the document. He suggested that Council start on Page 6 of the document under 'Transportation Goals and Objectives` and reach consensus on each section. A. TRANSPORTATION GOALS AND OBJECTIVES Councilwoman Raooa suggested clarifying language regarding the two intersections near Prado and Industrial Way. She also suggested that rather than referring to two lanes, four lanes or six lanes, that staff incorporate the actual right-of -way widths as most of these lanes allow for other traffic besides the automobile such as bikes and pedestrians. Councilwoman Pinard stated that she still did not feel that the goals were consistent with the task of carrying out the document. She fell that the City was already exceeding is goals in many areas and there was not strong enough language within the document to accomplish those goals. She also felt that the goals were too traffic dominated and not alternative driven. Councilman Reiss was concerned about subjecting the community to gridlock and until other alternatives were viable, he could continue to support widening streets if needed. After brief discussion, moved by Raaaa /Roalman to approve the Transportation Goals and Objectives section of the Circulation Element. Motion carried (4-1, Councilwoman Pinard voting no). B.
