APPROVAL OF MINUTES:
It was moved by Director Torres, seconded by Director Christensen and carried to approve the minutes of January 22, 2007.
It was moved by Director Christensen, seconded by Director Guingona and carried to approve the Agenda for the February 12, 2007 meeting.
Terry Sedik, Economic & Community Development Director, noted that this proposal was summarized earlier under the Committee Reports portion of the City Council Agenda. Mr. Sedik presented the staff report recommending the Agency approve the purchase of a 5-unit residential property located at 260 Abbot Avenue utilizing $900,000 Cal HFA funds and authorize the Agency Executive Director or her designee to execute all documents pertaining to this transaction.
On January 31 the Affordable Housing Committee comprised of Council Members Michael Guingona and Judith Christensen met with staff to discuss the subject property. Overall, the Committee believes that acquisition of the Abbot Street property could be a valuable addition to the City’s affordable housing stock and recommends the Agency Board approve the purchase, subject to evaluation of the property condition and tenancy profile. Staff is currently conducting an investigation of the property and will be able to confirm the project’s overall financial feasibility and consistency with affordable housing guidelines.
Director Christensen asked if the property had been inspected. Mr. Sedik said staff had done a thorough inspection and a termite report had been prepared by an outside company. An inspection of the roof was also to be done prior to the purchase of the building and the roof was not anticipated to be a problem.
It was moved by Vice-Chair Klatt, seconded by Director Christensen, and carried by unanimous roll call vote to adopt the following resolution:
Terry Sedik, Economic & Community Development Director, presented the staff report requesting the Agency grant conceptual approval to allow the continued operation of a wireless facility at 7367 Mission Street. As previously built, the existing faux flagpole is inappropriate, impractical, and should be repositioned where the visual impact is minimized.
The applicant indicates the proposed facility will in fact fit within a new 6.5” diameter pole and meet City requirements and standards. The existing second antenna cluster, mounted within a faux vent stack and associated ground equipment located to the east, in the subject parking lot will remain.
It was moved by Director Klatt, seconded by Director Guingona, and approved by 4 affirmative votes and one opposing vote by Director Torres to adopt the following resolution:
It was moved by Vice-Chair Klatt, seconded by Director Guingona, and carried to adjourn the meeting at 8:16 PM.
