Supporting the Socially Responsible Contractor’s Code of Conduct
Assistant to the City Manager Joseph Curran stated that the following resolution calls for the Council to support the Contractor’s Code of Conduct. The resolution would require the wealthy corporations within the biotech and high-tech industries of the Silicon Valley to make sure that the companies they contract for food service workers provide these workers with a livable wage and access to health care benefits for themselves and their dependents.
Annette Hipona, President of Original Daly City Protective Association, stated that Original Daly City wholeheartedly endorses this resolution that supports food service workers.
The following individuals expressed support for the resolution:
Adriana Gonzales, 389 Winchester, Genentech cafeteria worker
Catherine Cusick, Organizing Coordinator of United Here of International Local Nos. 2 and 19, on behalf of many workers contracted in the cafeterias of Genentech
Ms. Cusick introduced various members who work in food service.
It was moved by Mayor Gomez, seconded by Councilmember Klatt and carried by unanimous roll call vote to adopt the following resolution:
Resolution No. 07-56, Supporting the Socially Responsible Contractor’s Code of Conduct
Planning Commission – re: Approving Tentative Parcel Map to Merge Three Contiguous Lots into One Lot at 6031 and 6041 Mission Street
Senior Planner Tatum Mothershead gave a PowerPoint presentation of the proposed project site and reviewed the agenda report. Ms. Mothershead reported that this is a tentative parcel map to merge three parcels at 6031 and 6041 Mission Street. This is related to a use permit that was approved by Council in July 2004, which would allow construction of a 12-unit mixed use senior affordable housing project. The merger of the lots would create a lot that would be 5,850 square ft., which would accommodate the approved senior housing. Planning Commission recommends that the tentative map be approved subject to the findings and conditions contained in the staff report.
Discussion ensued with Ms. Mothershead answering Mayor Gomez’ question regarding parking allowance. Given that this is a senior affordable project, the use permit was given a significant parking reduction, which is allowed through the zoning ordinance.
Ms. Mothershead also answered Councilmember Christensen’s questions regarding the CEQA exemption whether environmental protections will be guaranteed throughout the demolition. In terms of CEQA, Ms. Mothershead stated that a project is exempt if it is not listed with the County as a known toxic site. However, the property owner has a phase I environmental assessment on the site. Staff has also been in contact with County for a removal plan for the auto repair business.
It was moved by Councilmember Torres, seconded by Councilmember Christensen and carried by unanimous roll call vote to adopt the following resolution:
Resolution No. 07-57, Adopting Findings of Fact Following Public Hearing and Approving Tentative Parcel Map Re; Minor Subdivision (MS06-5) and Environmental Assessment on 6031 and 6041 Mission Street Lot Merger of Three Contiguous Lots into One Lot
