A couple other updates:
- Things are moving rapidly toward the groundbreaking for the Fairfield Inn/Marriot Hotel next to I505. The developer is finalizing certain details and their engineering and building teams are lining things up.
- Phase III of the Putah Creek realignment project is scheduled to begin the week of September 3.
- The City Staff and Council will be working diligently on Animal Services including service levels and the development of a new Animal Shelter.
- Look for the issuance of building permits for 13 homes in the Heartland (Callahan)subdivision in the next week.
- Staff is working on a process to expedite one day issuance of building permits for standard construction projects. This will be on the September 4 City Council Meeting.
- Staff participated in the “after action” re-cap for the County Fire and the Road 88 Fire. Key issued discussed were evacuation protocols and road closures. Overall, a good meeting!
- Staff held a business owners meeting regarding the Food Truck Ordinance. A really good turnout and lots of input from businesses. Look for this to be before the Planning Commission in September.
- Homelessness is an enormous issue in Yolo County. A coordination meeting was held in Woodland to begin coordinating efforts on a County-wide basis. In Winters, we have been dealing with folks camping in the creek. We will be coordinating with social services were applicable and doing code enforcement in some areas.
Have a nice weekend.
