  • Homes By Towne continues to work on Three Oaks Park to address landscape, tree, and irrigation issues. The 90-day maintenance period cannot begin until the park meets installation standards.

  • In other development related news, work continues on Walnut 10 and in Winters Highland. Construction is still strong on the residential side; Fairfield Inn is making progress although there is no firm opening date; the owner hopes this fall. The proposed Grocery Outlet at the southeast corner of E. Main and Grant is still in the concept development process to address traffic circulation impacts with SR-128, which is Caltrans controlled. The Farmstead project is likewise going through site plan concept review. Staff continues to work on obtaining the rights to the Senior Center plans. We are reviewing a development proposal from NeighborWorks regarding the self-help housing project on Taylor in Winters Highland that is back in the hopper with a new non-profit team. We anticipate bringing an item to Council in August to discuss terms. Related to major planning efforts, we have kicked off the update to the Water Master Plan, which includes drought contingency planning, as well as the Downtown Visioning project. Consultants are getting up to speed. When we’re ready to engage in public input, we will share when and how.

Upcoming Council Meeting – July 19

The agenda packet for next Tuesday’s Council meeting is available here. Items include three new job classifications and salaries, a new transitional kindergarten after school program along with a recommended budget adjustment, the Final Map for Stone’s Throw in Winters Highland, introduction of a new grading ordinance, an update from the Downtown Business Association regarding the seasonal Main Street closure schedule, an update on the Grand Prince Odeum, and two public hearings for liens associated with delinquent utility and Waste Management account.

Woot Woot!

Kudos to the students and artists involved with the Winters Participation Gallery for their work on the mural at the post office. I must not turn into downtown from Railroad very often because I just noticed how much they had painted today.  These murals enliven the town, promote its history, and encourage youth to engage in art. A village that paints together, stays together. 😊
