BUSINESS ITEMS 2. 2007 GENERAL PLAN ANNUAL REPORT. Community Development Director Mandeville introduced this item, following ' which Associate Planner Codron made the staff presentation. They responded to Council's questions. Public Comments Jeannie Helphenstine, representing the Righetti property, asked Council to consider modifying the City's growth ordinance to create greater flexibilty. She explained that property owners in the Margarita Area are not moving forward with permits at this time although they have approval to do so. As a result, the City's building permit phasing plan is not proceeding as intended. She indicated that this could create a problem in the future if Orcutt Road property owners proceed with building permits. Andrew Merriam, Wallace Group, Coordinating Planner for the Orcutt Area Specific Plan, concurred with Ms. Helphenstine and the staff presentation. He suggested that a study session or other type of review, including landowners from all specific plan areas, should be held to address concerns before the completion of the Orcutt Area Specific Plan. Phil Grav, property owner in the Orcutt Area Speck Plan, concurred with the prior speakers and asked Council to modify the Growth Management Ordinance to enable enough units to be developed to pay for infrastructure. He suggested the ordinance should allow for an eight -year moving average of building permits. City Council Meeting Page 6 Tuesday, April 15, 2008 David Grav also concurred with the prior speakers. He referenced the large capital costs that will be needed to build the homes and suggested that a committee be formed to address these issues. Ermina Karim, Chamber of Commerce, noted that workforce housing availability consistently tops the list of critical issues. In addition, developers are facing significant up -front costs before building. For these reasons, the Chamber urged Council to consider implementing something similar to an eight -year growth management cycle. -= -end of public comments— Community Development Director addressed some of the public comments and referenced the concerns raised in the Agenda Report related to growth management phasing. He concurred that it would be beneficial for staff to receive public input on this matter prior to returning to Council with recommendations for amendments to the City's Growth Management Ordinance. Council Member Settle, Vice Mayor Brown, Council Member Carter and Mayor Romero spoke in support of possible amendments to the current Growth Management Ordinance Phasing Schedule, with staff developing and investigating options and reporting back to Council. Council Member Mulholland disagreed. She suggested that infrastructure costs are down at this time, making it feasible to start development.

However, she expressed concern that household numbers are decreasing while the sizes of houses are increasing. She said she would rather see higher densities and an increase in smaller houses. Council Member Mulholland referred to Charter section 909, and asked Council to take the water above and beyond the safe annual yield for build -out of 1556 acre feet and put that into the reliability reserve. A brief discussion followed, after which it was agreed that staff will include a report on this matter in its Annual Water Progress Report to Council. Council Member Carter explained why he thinks the City should begin to consider restricting commercial growth by instituting a commercial growth cap. He was particularly concerned with commercial development on Tank Farm and at the Airport and how it will impact the downtown. Council Member Mulholland concurred. .,... City Council Meeting Tuesday, April 15, 2008 Page 7 Vice Mayor Brown and Mayor Romero were not in support of pursuing a cap on ' commercial development.
