Highlights from the City Council meeting on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 are as follows:
Niblick Road Hot Spot Repairs and Bridge Deck Restriping–authorized the City Manager to enter into a contract with R. Burke Corporation for “hot spot” repairs and bridge deck restriping for a not-to-exceed amount of $100,424 ($91,295 plus a 10% contingency).
Repair of Selected West Side Streets in 2019–authorized the City Manager to engage the services of Pavement Engineering, Inc. to prepare Plans, Specifications and Estimates for: 10th Street from Vine Street to Spring Street, 6th Street from Spring Street to Pine Street, Park Street from 6th Street to 9th Street, and 9th Street from Pine Street to Park Street, in an amount not-to-exceed $93,869 ($85,335 plus 10% contingency).
Sale of a Portion of Pioneer Park Property and Leaseback to the City–approved an agreement with the Paso Robles Museum Foundation and authorized the City Manager to execute a Purchase and Sale Agreement for the sale of a portion of Pioneer Park, and to execute a Lease Back agreement for the property, and authorized the City Manager and City Attorney to make any minor, technical, or non-substantive changes to the agreements, as appropriate.
Repeal of Urgency Ordinance 1069 N.S. Regarding Short-Term Rental Ordinance–repealed Urgency Ordinance 1069 N.S., which added the Short-Term Rental Ordinance to the City Zoning Code. An urgency ordinance goes into effect without a second reading and requires 4/5 of the Council to support it. It is time-limited and expires after a defined period. Urgency ordinances address a timely need and are not permanent.
Short-Term Rental Ordinance Second Reading–directed staff to not bring back for a second reading, a regular ordinance that added the regular Short-Term Rental Ordinance to the City Zoning Ordinance. A regular ordinance does not go into effect until 30 days after a second reading. By not holding the second reading of this ordinance, the Council kept it from going into effect.
Amendment of Municipal Code to Add Provisions Regulating Short Term Rentals (Vacation Rental Homes) in All Residential and Mixed-Use Zoning Districts Throughout the City–approved a motion to refer the proposed ordinance along with public comment to the Short-Term Rental Task Force with the goal of recommending a draft ordinance to the Planning Commission within 60 days. The task force will begin meeting on February 27, 2019 at 10:00 am in the City Council Chamber. These meetings are open to the public. Residents interested in receiving notifications regarding this topic can sign up through “Notify Me” on the City’s website.
Sherwood Park Area Masterplan–approved the 2019 Sherwood Park Area Master Plan and authorized the preparation of a project phasing plan, financing plan, engineered construction drawings, and a maintenance/staffing needs analysis.
Options for Increasing Pickleball Court Capacity–directed staff to prioritize the construction of new pickleball courts at Sherwood Park with lighting utilizing reserves and to replenish reserves as funding becomes available. Staff will return to Council with a resolution to establish funding.
This represents just a subset of the total actions by the Council. The full agenda can be found at https://www.prcity.com/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_02192019-171
