Friday Update: Planning Workshop Edition- August 30, 2019

City Manager Update Planning Workshop Edition August 30 2019
All,

On August 21, 2019, the City held a joint community workshop of the City Council and Planning Commission to discuss a number of key planning subjects including the status of any application regarding the North Area, an overview of the application and plan review process, the status of the General Plan and an overview of key planning issues in California. The Workshop was well attended and the public provided a number of important themes in their comments.

One of the most important takeaways was the importance that the City needs to ensure a very robust process of engagement, information and planning to bring the community into a process of planning all facets of the how, where and the pace of development within the City.

From the City Staff perspective and in my discussions with both City Council and Planning Commission, the message was heard loud and clear!

Key themes in the comments included:

  • The need for a robust community outreach and engagement of residents in planning the City’s future.  Multiple people noted that many of the City’s residents today did not have input on the current General Plan, and they should have input on how the City develops moving forward. Its time to get lots of folks involved!
  • Concerns regarding the pace, location and the phasing of growth within the City.
  • Questions and concerns regarding the current and potential growth boundaries of the City’s planning area.
  • Need for a review on the payoff of the debt owed on the 1992 General Plan.
  • The need for a review of General Plan policies and sections to reflect community values and aspirations.
  • The relevancy and applicability of the City’s current General Plan.
  • The importance of citizen input and collaboration in the planning process, review of the General Plan.
  • The need for a Climate Action Plan to establish baseline expectations for addressing this critical area.

Staff has taken these themes and is incorporating them into an overall land use planning work program which will be presented to the City Council on October 1, 2019.

At the end of the workshop, the Council provided staff with some specific direction on some key items including the following:

  1. Status of Northeast Area
  • Direct staff to maintain the informational website with current information regarding the project and application status.
  1. Land Development Application Process
  • Affirm the described land development application process for continued use with new applications
  • Direct staff to post the steps for a typical land development application process online as an informational tool
  • Direct staff to provide monthly updates to Council on activity related to land development projects.
  1. Status of General Plan
  • Direct staff to undertake an adequacy review of General Plan to identify required and other strongly recommended changes, as well as preliminary budget and funding information for making such changes
  • Direct staff to develop workplan for update of the Housing Element with preliminary budget and funding information
  • Direct staff to investigate mechanisms and a timeline to pay off the 1992 General Plan interfund loan

Status of Annexation

  • Direct staff to undertake an adequacy review of the location and extent of the General Plan planning area
  1. General Plan Implementation
  • Direct staff to identify funding and prepare a workplan plan for adoption of a Climate Action Plan/Sustainability Strategy.
  • Direct staff to report on the status and adequacy of the City’s infrastructure master plans, including the status of the Flood Overlay Zone (FOZ), and the major projects financing fee program

Additionally, Staff is proposing projects to specifically address many of the themes which were presented at the workshop.  There are many details in development and some things will take time to prepare, (and may be modified) but will be presented at the October 1 meeting.

These include:

Public Outreach:

Without question, people at the workshop are interested in participation in planning the future of the City, and making sure that the City’s residents have input into land use and planning decisions moving forward. Making sure that our citizens have this opportunity will be the number one priority.

Staff is now working on the development of a public outreach strategy to maximize community participation in the review and prioritization of general plan policy development.

General Plan:

The work program will include the following to address concerns related to the General Plan:

  1. A General Plan adequacy review.
  2. The development of an overall strategy for the update of needed aspects of the General Plan, including funding and an overall framework.
  3. A General Plan Refresh Strategy which will include the overall scope and parameters for policy review, presentation and update of key General Plan Documents.

 

Fiscal Sustainability:

The important of establishing a clear picture of a sound financial future for the City to provide services, maintain infrastructure and sustain critical services such as school, public safety and the wide variety of quality of life services such as parks and projected senior services is critical. The work program will include a variety of fiscal models to help in the decision making process.

 

Public Information:

The importance of accessibility of information on planning is a critical part of the overall process. The work program includes:

  1. Maintenance and regular updates to the City’s North Area Planning Website to include project status reports, monthly updates, planning application information.
  2. Regular updates before the City Council on planning applications.

 

Climate Action Strategy and Plan:

The work program will include a program toward the update and adoption of a Climate Action Plan. This may include:

  1. Establishment of an Advisory Climate Committee/Commission to work with Staff and consultants in the update and review of a Climate Action Plan.
  2. Development of a Climate Action Plan Document which may include the update of the current draft document and a merge with the draft climate action strategy.
  3. The application of applicable Yolo Climate Resiliency Tool Box policies within City policies and programs.
  4. Environmental Review and adoption of a Climate Action Plan.

The proposal will be one of the most comprehensive planning and community participation efforts in many years for the City.

Stay tuned for more information!

Have a nice labor day!

Friday Update on August 16 2019

 

All,

Happy Yolo County Faire Weekend! Getting this out so I can go support the Winters FFA students and pour beer for Rotary. Here is the update:

Also included will be the Groundwater Monitoring agreement for our Wastewater Facility, a Proclamation in support of the Yolo Food Bank, Funding for the Salmon Festival and the Street Closure for the Earthquake Festival. For the Agenda or the full Packet click HERE.
  • The Planning Workshop on August 21 at the Public Safety Facility will be from 5:00-8:30. The Workshop will be mostly educational in nature but will cover some of the hot topics of the past few months. Think the ABC’s of planning, Topics to be covered at the workshop will include an update on any status of the North Area/Annexation Project, Overview of the land development application process, Status of the General Plan, Overview of the LAFCO and Annexation Process, the difference between General Plan and General Plan Implementation and Planning Trends in California.

  • The First Street Parking Lot adjacent to the Hotel Winters was paved this week and we expect the marking of the stalls and finishing touches to occur next week. In total, 38 spaces which will include handicapped stalls and a high capacity electric vehicle charging station. Overall, it looks pretty good!

Finally, a big thanks to the “Guerilla Gardeners” who have become an important partner for the City of Winters in maintaining and manicuring the Downtown Area. All through the area from Railroad Ave to Main and First Street, these volunteers are doing an amazing job and showing a lot of pride and “Winters Spirit” in making our community look really good! A shout out and many thanks for a job well done.

Go to the County Faire, support our FFA and enjoy one of the last “free” experiences of its type in California!

Friday Update on Thursday August 8 2019

 

All,

A couple of items this week:

  • From the City Council Meeting, the Air B&B Ordinance was continued to the August 20 Meeting with a request for more information on how Accessory Dwelling Units are treated within the scope of affordable housing and as vacation rentals.
  • Approved at the meeting was an upgrade to the City’s Building Permit System with direction to include a “citizen portal” to allow permit applications, payment and tracking online.
  • Mayor Pro Tem Wade Cowan was selected as the Alternate Board Member to represent the City on the Yolo Housing Authority.

Some miscellaneous items:

  • Due to unavoidable issues, the paving work schedule for Downtown streets and the First Street Parking Lot has changed: On Saturday, August 10, Vintage Paving will be doing road work on Railroad Ave and on Abbey St. The south bound lane on Railroad from Abbey to Main will be closed. The north bound lane will be open but moved over to the east side a few feet. Their will be no parking on the east side of Railroad from Main to Abbey during this construction period which is scheduled to be from 6am to 4pm. Abbey St will be closed on the West side from the west edge of the hotel to the First/Abbey intersection. There will be access to Napa Auto Parts and the Barber Shop from Railroad. Vintage will be paving the entrance into Newts Expressway, the entrance into the parking lot and will be paving Newts Expressway. On Monday, August 12, they will be paving the parking lot but no road closure.
  • Congratulations to the Winters Joint Unified School District for their open house and the launch of the new buildings on the Winters High School Campus. A really important sign of the upgrades to the school and the investment the community has in our education system.  10 new classrooms for our students. Well done!
  • Kudo’s to the Downtown Merchants for the Albarino Wine Stroll. A first class event which really took things to a new level! Estimates have the participants at about 400+.
  • For those interested in Planning and Development, mark you calendar for Wednesday, August 21 from 5:00 to 8:30 at the Public Safety Facility (700 Main Street). The Workshop for August 21 2019 will be mostly educational in nature but will cover some of the hot topics of the past few months. Think the ABC’s of planning, Topics to be covered at the workshop will include an update on any status of the North Area/Annexation Project, Overview of the land development application process, Status of the General Plan, Overview of the LAFCO and Annexation Process, the difference between General Plan and General Plan Implementation and Planning Trends in California. Good news on this is that the session will be facilitated and presented by both our Contract Planner Heidi Tschudin and City Attorney Ethan Walsh!

City Hall is extremely busy! A key project I am working on involves the development of a key project list to inform the City Council and the public about the myriad of issues and projects we are working on. Lots of projects which are interconnected means the need to plan the appropriate sequencing to maximize the overall efficiency and effectiveness of how we proceed. For some folks it may seem frustrating but it is just the reality for how we need to proceed.

Finally, I would like to highlight the Police Department’s Cadet Program which provides personal development and leadership opportunities for young people in our community. The young men and women in the program have the chance to not only learn about law enforcement and public safety, but to make a genuine impact on their community and become role models amongst their peers and especially with children.

In 2019, the Cadets have represented the community in a number of events, most notably at the services for fallen Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona. I will share that I saw the cadets the morning of the services, looking amazingly professional and ready to go represent. They shined at the event and those in the Department and I could never have been prouder to have such fine young people wearing the name “Winters” on their uniforms. It was special!

Cadet positions are non- sworn volunteer positions and complement the Winters Police Volunteer Program. The goals of the Police Cadet program are to expose men and women to the various aspects of police work in order to prepare them for a career in law enforcement. The Police Cadet program also helps to provide quality candidates for all law enforcement. Cadets increase services the Police Department can provide to our community and can provide support in the following areas:

  • School, Park, and Bike trail Patrols
  • Community Events and Festivals
  • Safety Presentations
  • Traffic control and scene management during emergencies
  • Senior wellness checks
  • Vacation checks
  • Clerical/ Office Support

The program is administered by Cadet Program Director Officer Alan Pinette and Coordinator CSO Gail Jimenez. For more information regarding the Cadet Program please contact: Cadet Program Winters Police Department 702 Main St Winters, CA 95694 (530) 795-2261 ext 146 tips.winters@winterspolice.org Or download our information brochure by clicking this link: Cadet Brochure

Have a good weekend!

Friday Update on August 2 2019

All,

Back from a couple of days in a very hot and monsoon driven trip to Arizona. A couple items:

City Council Agenda:

Discussion items includes:

  • Air B&B Ordinance
  • Designation of Alternate City Council Liaison to Yolo Housing Authority Board
  • Building Permit System Software Upgrade
  • Natural Resources Element Review

Consent Calendar Items Includes:

  • Purchase of a Float Sensor for East Street Sewer Pump Station
  • Amplified Sound Permit for Thanksgiving Dinner Fundraiser
  • Delinquent Utility Bills
  • Claims Filed Against the City from Foxglove Flooding

The meeting will also include a presentation on Climate Change and Resiliency.

A couple more items:

  • The Planning Workshop for August 21 2019 will be mostly educational in nature but will cover some of the hot topics of the past few months. Think the ABC’s of planning, Topics to be covered at the workshop will include an update on any status of the North Area/Annexation Project, Overview of the land development application process, Status of the General Plan, Overview of the LAFCO and Annexation Process, the difference between General Plan and General Plan Implementation and Planning Trends in California. Good news on this is that the session will be facilitated and presented by both our Contract Planner Heidi Tschudin and City Attorney Ethan Walsh!
  • Transient Issues in the Creek have created work for our public works and public safety folks. A busy week with some law enforcement and emergency medical response.
  • First Street Parking lot and Newt’s Alley will probably be paved around the weekend of August 10. Overall both of these projects are looking really good.
  • Saturday is the Albarino Wine Stroll. Check in is at the Green River Tap Room. For full information, go to www.albarinowinestroll.com . It is going to be an amazing event.

Finally, the article in the newspaper on the Planning Commission was a little hard on my comments related to “millennials”. Mostly, my observation is that the overall processes need the participation of a broad cross section of the community, when it comes to issues, especially when looking at our future on issues like planning, economic development and shaping the future course for the community. Yes, I give a hard time to millennials, because they are a really tough group to outreach to in relation to community meetings. Millennials are good in their own forum (online, social media, etc) but when it comes to the melding of interests and groups in a community forum like a City Council or Planning Commission Meeting, they simply do not show up.

Some of this is clearly the fault of the City in trying to find those avenues which get into a more technical approach to engagement. We are looking into alternatives and if we have community members who know of effective community outreach tools in this area, I would appreciate hearing them. Social media seems to be a pretty difficult environment but there must be other avenues out there. Let me know.

Have a nice weekend.

John

08/06/2019 City Council Meeting

Friday Update on Sunday July 28 2019

All,

The heat of summer is upon us and this time of year marks the start of our fiscal year budget and a lot start for many things, meaning smaller agendas with the City Council.

The tentative August 6 City Council Agenda has the following:

  • Public Hearing on the Air BnB Ordinance
  • Presentation on Climate Resiliency (effects of heat)
  • Designation of an alternate City Council liaison for Yolo County Housing Authority
  • Installation of a float level transmitter for the East Street Pump Station
  • Amplified Sound Permit for Thanksgiving Committee Fundraiser

A couple updates on things:

  • First, if you are feeling ignored by not getting response to emails to City Hall, you are probably not alone. We upgraded all of our computer programs last weekend and most of us feel like we have landed on another planet. Be patient and understand that the positive effects of an “upgrade” take months to be realized. We will get there!
  • Mark Wednesday, August 21 for a joint City Council/Planning Commission Land Use Planning Workshop as an education forum on many of the topics brought up regarding the north area including Specific Planning, Annexation, General Plan and LAFCO Process. This will be an opportunity for the City, community and stakeholders to get on the same page on the status of many key issues. Look for details to come out in the coming weeks.
  • Staff met with about 20 community members with concerns about the North Area Planning issue. It was a facilitated meeting with many questions and some amazing input. I will share that I was grateful for the honesty and directness of folks along with some pretty direct questions to try and clear the air on things. Winters is blessed with many people who love the community. From the meeting, there is more common ground than disagreement on things and I am confident that we will get to understanding and agreement and move forward in a united direction. I will be scheduling a follow up meeting in the coming weeks to check in on some things we are working on at the staff level and get input. The meeting gets 5 out of 5 stars in my view.
  • The Planning Commission had a really good workshop on the Economic Development Advisory Committee Report.  Some really good input. We have an exceptional group on the Commission and the other night shows!
  • On July 9, I was on a panel for the “Sacramento Groundbreakers” which featured Visit Sacramento, Visit Lodi, Rob on the Road from PBS and me representing Winters. Click HERE for a link to the podcast, it came out pretty good for us.
  • The Hotel Winters is scheduled to have its grand opening on September 6, 2019.
  • The OLS Hotels Team who will operate the Hotel Winters have been training at City Hall and it is really pretty cool. Most of the hires are from here in Winters and the orientation process is absolutely amazing. This is going to be a first class hotel and the emphasis on excellence in the training of their staff shows. This is very exciting!
  • I personally walked through the Hotel this week with most of the rooms furnished and the ambiance beginning to emerge. The views from the rooms are amazing and really show off the town and vistas in a way unlike any other place in the City. We cannot wait for the community to see the project, the wait is absolutely worth it.
  • Look for the First Street Parking Lot and Newts Expressway to get rocked this week, concrete gutters installed and paving to happen over the next two weeks. The project is blessed with Vintage Paving as our contractor and their quality subs. The project is on schedule and will be really nice when we are done.
  • Rumor Control on the First Street Parking Lot- THIS WILL BE A PUBLIC PARKING LOT AND NOT EXCLUSIVELY FOR THE HOTEL.
  • Two HUGE projects on the City Manager’s desk are project lists for General City Projects from each Department and a Planning Project List. Both will be presented at the August 20 City Council Meeting. Lot’s going on and the project lists will show that.
  • The City hosted a quarterly meeting for the Sacramento Division of the League of California Cities with about 40 elected officials from the greater Northern California in attendance. An update on our Putah Creek Projects, a Tour of the PG&E Academy, a tour of our agricultural assets and finally a tour of Berreyessa Gap Winery and rootstock. It was a first class event organized by City Councilmember Jesse Loren with Buckhorn Truck Food, a presentation and welcome from Mayor Bill Biasi and a quality representation by our businesses. Our little town is the talk of the Sacramento Region and it did not disappoint! Kudos to all who participated!
  • The Albarino Wine Stroll is on August 3. Get your tickets at www.albarinowinestroll.com . $45 dollars per person which is a bargain!

Finally, controversy over the past few months has put a real critical eye on these Friday Updates. Social media has not been kind, often taking a different spin and taking something which is relatively non-controversial and making it the coming of the apocalypse. I have some folks telling me to end them.

I have been sending the Friday Updates out to a general distribution for the better part of eight years. In total, I hit about 8,000 people weekly through email, twitter, facebook and Instagram. The goal is pretty simple, to give folks a glimpse into things happening in the City in a concise format and some insight into things happening at Winters City Hall and my desk. I include some perspectives and stories in my own goofy way and sometimes bring a self-effacing approach to some situations. Yup, I am very patriotic, pro public safety, have a really dry sense of humor and put an unfiltered view on things (I get interesting feedback on lots of my views). Not trying to generate controversy, propagandize or proselytize, just my view which can be totally ignored and deleted.

The Friday Update is going to continue. For those on my  email distribution who don’t want to be on the list anymore, just respond and Ill take you off. On social media, just ignore it!

Try and avoid the heat and see everyone at the Albarino Stroll.

John

Friday Update on June 28 2019

Friday Update on June 28 2019

Friday Update on June 28, 2019 City Manager Update
All,

A crazy busy week with lots going on!

First, a review of the City Council Agenda for Tuesday, July 2. Pretty short being a holiday week. The entire agenda and packet (with all the details and reports) can be located HERE.

  • TEFRA Public Hearing for the Blue Mountain Terrace Senior Affordable Apartments. This will be a mandatory hearing for the conduit financing for the project.
  • Memorandums of Understandings and Salary Schedules for most of the City’s employee organizations.
  • General Plan Element Review. The fifth of the nine (9) part series. This month we will focus on the Public Facilities and Services Element.
  • Contract with Switzer Enterprises for the City’s Information Technology Services.

Some of the items hot and going this week.

  • Good news, Burger King is ready to be opened. Final inspections and testing was completed today and they can open at any time!
  • The street and frontage improvements for the Downtown Winters Hotel were paved and concrete installed which is a major milestone for the project. Mattresses and furniture are starting to be loaded into the hotel which is very exciting!
  • OLS Hotels, the parent company of the Hotel Winters held employee orientations and training at City Hall. A very exciting day as we watched first hand the local jobs and opportunity being realized from the project. It looks like a first class organization and the new employees seemed to be just beaming!
  • The First Street Parking Lot and Alley Improvements are well under way. Grading for the project is almost completed, so additional geotechnical work is under way in the alley and they are setting up for the concrete work. Vintage Paving of Winters is the general contractor and we could never wish for better. Former City lifeguard, lifelong resident and recent Chico State Grad Kevin Hyde is the foreman on the job and doing an amazing job of managing the operations. Look for the project to come to completion over the next couple weeks!
  • The Planning Commission reviewed and is advancing a recommendation for the adoption of an ordinance to cover short term rentals such as Air B&B, Vacation Rentals by Owners, Etc. The review and work took almost a year and was very thorough, with multiple hearings, workshops and outreach. Look for it to be on the City Council Agenda in August.
  • Housing is becoming the State’s #1 priority with the Governor and Legislature announcing sweeping legislation, funding and penalties for achieving their goals on the expansion of housing. Look for much of this to come to the forefront by September with the release of the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) from the Sacramento Area Council of Governments. For more information on RHNA, go HERE.
  • For an overview of key housing issues in Winters go HERE for a report delivered to the City Council and Planning Commission in May.
  • Staff attended multiple County meetings on the growing issue of The problem is growing significantly throughout the State and Region with Sacramento seeing an almost 25% rise. The most significant takeaway is that there are many people literally one lost job or rent increase away from being on the streets. The number of people living in their cars is increasing. The cycle seems to be from housing to eviction to couch surfing to living in a car to living on the street. Each of the Yolo cities (with the exception of Winters) have dedicated “homeless coordinators” extending services and providing a social aspect to city operations. The issue is serious and growing!
  • The City held its “2X2” with the WJUSD on Wednesday. The District is moving forward on their facility plans and many other projects. Lots of really good stuff for students in the coming years.
  • Saturday will be one year since the “County Fire” which burned almost 120,000 acres along the Blue/Berryessa Ridge. Let’s root for NO FIRES in 2019!
  • We had technical issues on this month’s edition of “Ask the City Manager”. We have a few folks in attendance in the Council Chamber and it was a good afternoon. We will fix the camera issue and be back next month.

Finally, the murders of Sacramento Officer Tara O’Sullivan and Davis Officer Natalie Corona were brought to reality for me over the past week with the amazing funeral for Officer O’Sullivan on Thursday and a chance for me to meet the parents of Officer Corona last week in Davis. The shattering of such bright futures and potential which would have undoubtedly have made incredible contributions to the law enforcement community is just heart breaking and hits to the core on the violence which exists in our society and is faced by law enforcement daily.

On Friday of last week (the day following the murder of Officer Tara O’Sullivan), I participated in the Special Olympics Torch Run from the Davis Police Station to the ARC Arena at UC Davis. Leading the procession and the first torch bearers were Merced and Lupe Corona, the parents of slain Davis Officer Natalie Corona. They were the nicest, most affable people, joking with the officers and laughing about Natalie’s affinity for running. They brought strength and resolve to all the officers present. They were absolutely wonderful!

One thing I noticed were the many females participating in the run and how young they all looked. I asked who they were (thinking they were relatives of some of the officers) and I learned that they were either new officers or cadets! First, I felt really old (everyone seems to look really young these days), but mostly I was encouraged to see the motivation of these young female officers coming into law enforcement. As we did the run, they had a number of chants and you could hear these young officers yelling loud and exuding pride and enthusiasm for their chosen profession. It was inspiring!

The tragedies of both Tara and Natalie are simply unconscionable,  but there is no question that they will be the heroic symbols to motivate the growing next generation of female officers who will choose to lead from the front in our public safety future. Law enforcement has yearned to recruit women into the ranks for many years and we are now seeing it grow even in the shadows of the recent tragedies.

From tragedy springs eternal hope and without question, the legacies of Tara and Natalie will be our law enforcement future.

No Friday update next week!

John
