City Manager Update ~ 10/30/15

All,

Lots……………..

  • The PG&E Groundbreaking is this coming Monday, November 2, 2015 at 11:00. Below is the invite and all are encouraged to come!
  • The  Putah Creek Bridge Project crews are working on their last big push to complete the bridge and get the bridge open to traffic. In order to facilitate this process the bridge will be closed beginning Monday 11/2 at 9 am and will remain closed until approximately Sat. 11/21. Please use Putah Creek Road to Hwy 505 as a detour during this time. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation during these last few weeks as we work to complete the project before therains begin!
  • City Council Agenda has a couple items including the Tree Lighting Ceremony and Tractor Parade for Christmas, the second reading of ordinances for second units and home occupations and the inspection contract for the PG&E facility.
  • Construction on the Downtown Hotel has begun!!! Grading started this week and will proceed for the next few weeks. (It amazes me how much guys are intrigued to stand and stare at machinery in action!) Look for the project to get the site work done, then let the El Nino hit it and then the project will start coming out of the ground. This is getting exciting!
  • Congratulation to Yolo Housing who is celebrating their 65th Anniversary of providing quality public housing in Yolo and Solano Counties. Our Mayor Cecilia Aguiar Curry is the current Chair and Winters resident Lisa Baker is the Executive Director. El Rio Villa was the first housing project for Yolo Housing, so our community is an important part of their celebration and success.
  • Lisa Baker is an absolute star in Yolo County! Her efforts to re-establish Yolo Housing after a very controversial period has been an important success story. Yolo Housing through their staff and Board has become a nationally recognized Housing Agency and saying it has been a tough road is an absolute understatement.
  • The Winters Veterans of Foreign Wars will be holding a scholarship fundraising dinner on November 12 starting at 6:00 at Tomats Restaurant as a kickoff for the Holden Philbrook Memorial Scholarship. Holden was a Winters High Grad stationed in North Carolina with the Army when he died in a motorcycle accident. Funds from the dinner will go toward a scholarship which will be awarded at the 2016 graduation.
  • The Fire Departments Annual Shrimp Feed in support of Toys for Tots is on November 14 at 6:00 at the Fire Station. Go by the station for tickets!

Have a nice weekend. ~ John

Dry Creek Citizens Group ~ petition for grants

With El Nino and fierce winters storms coming, residents along Dry Creek may experience erosion that needs to be addressed. Please watch for the Dry Creek Citizens Group, who will be circulating a petition through neighborhoods bordering Dry Creek in order to gain support to apply for grants funding to help people address the erosion issues they may face. Households who sign will receive booklets that help educate about the creek system and what restoration efforts might provide.

The group will be partnering with the City of Winters to devise a plan for the entire creek system and to provide planting and structures that will prevent erosion behind houses. By signing the petitions, citizens will show their support for grant applications that will be able to be reviewed by the public before being submitted to funders. Previous grants have already addressed severe erosion issues shared by some creek owners.

If any one would like to see actual restoration sites or if you would be interested in helping with the petition effort, please contact Valerie Whitworth (530-795-2009).

City Manager Update ~ 10/24/15

All,
First, a couple reminders of things happening:
· The City and Waste Management will be holding a bulky item/e-waste/Household Hazardous Waste drop off this Saturday October 24 from 9-1 at the City Corp Yard on East Baker Street. Bring a utility bill or a picture ID with your address along with all your junk. Click HERE for the details.
· Tonight is the last Fourth Friday Feast in Downtown! It should be a beautiful evening to celebrate what is really cool about Winters and support our local merchants.
· The WJUSD is hosting a Vision/Mission Workshop on Monday, October 26, 2015 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at the Margaret Parsons Community Room at the Winters Community Library. The Board and Interim Superintendent Todd Cutler have been working really hard to put together a positive direction for the District. This is a great opportunity to provide input into the future of our District.
· PG&E will be hosting the groundbreaking of the Gas Operations Technical Training Center on November 2 beginning at 11:00. Shuttle services will be available from the Community Center Parking Lot or you can drive out to the location at Grant Ave/505. It should be really good.

A couple more items:
· Construction (mostly earthwork) on the Downtown Hotel Winters will begin next week. The parking area across from City Hall will be Closed for most of the week. Look for this area to be mostly closed during the duration of the construction which will take the good part of 12-16 months. This is an infill project which needs a construction staging area and this is the most logical location.
· City Hall will be building an employee parking area in a lot adjacent to City Hall to take about 10 cars off of the street. Business employees are encouraged to park in either the Community Center, Railroad or along West Main Street near second street. In total, the walk from any of this parking adds up to about 1 city block to the furthest business. Try doing that in Sacramento, San Francisco or any larger city!
· The Putah Creek Car Bridge will see a two week closure from November 2-16 for the construction of the roadway. This will require detour via 505 as they install bricks and the roadway section.
· The Blue Mountain Terrace Senior Apartment Project cleared another financing hurdle this week and we are now looking for construction to begin in 2016.
· The Walnut Lane Roundabout actually got a response from Caltrans and we are now looking at a spring 2016 construction date. Because we are trying to work with Caltrans, who really knows!

Have a nice weekend. ~ John
