SUMMARY

Approval of this item will change the regular meeting days for the Municipal Financing Authority and the Public Financing Authority from the same days and times as regular meetings of the City Council to the first Tuesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. It will also change the time of regular meetings of the Successor Agency to the Redevelopment Agency, which are held on the first Tuesday of each month, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. These changes will result in the regular meetings of these agencies being held once per month, on the first Tuesday of each month, at 5:00 p.m., which will be concurrent with a regular City Council meeting.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW

 

Environmental Notice

Environmental Notice

The activity is not a “Project” as defined under Section 15378 of the California Environmental Quality Act State Guidelines; therefore, pursuant to State Guidelines Section 15060(c)(3) no environmental review is required.

 

Body

Environmental Determination

The Director of Development Services has reviewed the proposed activity for compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and has determined that the activity is not a “Project” as defined under Section 15378 of the State CEQA Guidelines because it will not result in a physical change in the environment; therefore, pursuant to Section 15060(c)(3) of the State CEQA Guidelines, the activity is not subject to CEQA.  Thus, no environmental review is required

 

BOARD/COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION

Not applicable.

 

DISCUSSION

On March 15, 2016, the Municipal Financing Authority (MFA) and Public Financing Authority (PFA) (jointly the “Authorities”) adopted Resolution Nos. MFA 2016-001 and PFA 2016-001, respectively, establishing their regular meetings on the same day and time of each regular City Council meeting. The Authorities no longer have need to meet weekly on a regular basis. The proposed resolutions change the regular meeting day to the first Tuesday of each month. Regular meetings will continue to be held concurrently with the City Council meeting, beginning at 5:00 p.m.

 

On February 26, 2013, the Successor Agency to the Redevelopment Agency (“SA”) adopted Resolution No. SA 2013-014, setting the day and time of regular meetings as the first Tuesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. (or, immediately following the City Council regular meeting). At that time, regular meetings of the City Council were held at 2:00 p.m. and were subsequently changed to 5:00 p.m. Adoption of the proposed resolution aligns the time of regular SA meetings with regular City Council meetings.

 

DECISION-MAKER CONFLICT

Staff has reviewed the decision contemplated by this action and has determined that it is not site-specific and consequently, the 500-foot rule found in California Code of Regulations Title 2, section 18702.2(a)(11), is not applicable to this decision for purposes of determining a disqualifying real property-related financial conflict of interest under the Political Reform Act (Cal. Gov't Code § 87100, et seq.).

 

Staff is not independently aware, and has not been informed by any City Councilmember, of any other fact that may constitute a basis for a decision maker conflict of interest in this matter.  

 

LINK TO STRATEGIC GOALS

The City’s Strategic Plan has five major goals: Operational Excellence, Economic Vitality, Healthy Community, Strong and Secure Neighborhoods and a Connected Community. Aligning the start times of these agencies’ regular meetings and reducing the frequency of regular meetings will help streamline operations and reduce administrative processing required to cancel regular meetings.
