Three brief reports that should be of interest to CLRC members may be found in the minutes of the March 14, 2011 City Council meeting. Here are the City’s minutes extract:
VII. CITY COUNCIL REPORTS
. . .
E. Councilmember Zenzinger reported that the APEX bonds expire in 2016 and that would be a good time to go to the voters to extend the debt authority without increasing taxes to fund new community facilities, such as an East side recreation center and/or maybe putting elements back into Garrison St. She said a committee will be formed to look at this and city council should be thinking of people who could serve on the committee.
F. Councilmember Cook asked if it is okay to ask staff to look at forming a Ralston Corridor Advisory Group. Councilmember Zenzinger said it would be nice to pull in some of the other committees, or a representative from some of the other committees, like theTransportation Committee. Mr. Kocian said the Ralston Road Committee would be more about land use and economics than transportation matters. Staff will put together information.
G. Council members expressed concern about the possibility that the $9,000 grant to the community gardens could be revoked unless it can be shown that we are committed to the gardens. Staff will prepare a letter stating that we value the garden without committing us to any kind of decision about the location.
