RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the City Manager’s Office that the Council, by resolution, approve the Council Policy for Grant Application and Administration.   

12.3 REPORT -- FOUNTAINGROVE LODGE DETENTION BASIN - EASEMENT

Drainage from the Fountaingrove Lodge buildings and site would be directed into an existing underground drainage system, to the existing drainage basin and ultimately into Piner Creek. The drainage basin and surrounding open space was installed as a subdivision improvement in 1992 and dedicated to and accepted by the City of Santa Rosa. The scope of this 1992 easement, does not however cover the intensification of use from the development of the Lodge or the right to access and use of the City property for modifications to the current basin to comply with applicable SUSMP standards.

City staff proposes to grant to OSL Santa Rosa Fountaingrove LLC, the necessary easement of 0.372 acres (16,204 sq. ft) for the drainage basin and access to the basin for maintenance purposes. In consideration for granting this easement, Oakmont Senior Living has agreed to pay $27,385.00.

RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the Department of Recreation, Parks and Community Services and the Department of Community Development that the City Council, by resolution, grant OSL Santa Rosa Fountaingrove LLC a permanent drainage easement for the Fountaingrove Lodge detention basin. 

12.4 REPORT -- ACCEPTANCE OF FUNDING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MEASURE O CHOICE GRANT PROGRAM FUNDED AGENCIES AND THE APPROVAL OF BREAKOUT PRISON OUTREACH DOING BUSINESS AS CALIFORNIA YOUTH OUTREACH FUNDING AGREEMENT FOR CYCLE VI FISCAL YEAR 2012-2013 

BACKGROUND: In November 2004, Santa Rosa voters passed a Transaction and Use tax measure to fund critical public safety improvements in Police, Fire and Recreation & Parks.   Expected to generate a total of about $7 million per year for the next 20 years, the sales tax will provide the Recreation & Parks Department with roughly $1.4 million per year to fund crucial youth development programs and other activities designed to address the community’s gang prevention and intervention needs.  This includes coordination of the Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force Policy Team and Operational Team and start-up and operation of 17 new after-school recreation programs that will provide safe places for children to learn and grow in schools and neighborhood centers throughout Santa Rosa.  35% of the Recreation and Parks share of the revenue each year will fund in-school violence prevention and conflict resolution education, as well as grants to local non-profits providing related services that will enhance youth asset development and reduce risk factors. 

RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the Department of Recreation, Parks & Community Services that the Council, by resolution, accepts the funding recommendations of the Grant Review Team as shown in Attachment C for Cycle VI of the CHOICE gang prevention/intervention grant program for Fiscal Year 2012-13 and directs staff to finalize funding agreements with service providers.  It is further recommended that the Council, by resolution, approves the funding agreement with Breakout Prison Outreach doing business as California Youth Outreach (CYO) in the amount of $127,000; and authorizes the Director of Recreation, Parks & Community Services to act as the signing authority for contracts and payments related to the CHOICE Cycle VI funded agencies. 

12.5 CONTINUED REPORT -- CHARTER REVIEW COMMITTEE REPORT

  NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETING OF THE SANTA ROSA CITY COUNCIL

100 SANTA ROSA AVENUE, SANTA ROSA

 

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the City of Santa Rosa will hold a Special Meeting on Tuesday, June 26, 2012, in the Council Chamber, City Hall, 100 Santa Rosa Avenue, Santa Rosa, California, at 6:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the regular meeting adjourns, to consider the following matter:

2.     PUBLIC COMMENTS (PUBLIC COMMENTS WILL BE LIMITED TO TOPIC OF THE SPECIAL MEETING) 

3.     STATEMENTS OF ABSTENTION 

4.     REPORT ITEM     

4.1   REPORT -- RE-ENTER INTO LOANS AND AGREEMENTS WITH THE FORMER REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY

BACKGROUND:  After approval of the Redevelopment Agency’s Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule by the Successor Agency and Oversight Board, the California Department of Finance (DOF) exercised its right to conduct a review of the list of Enforceable Obligations.  Upon completion of that review, the DOF informed the City that it did not consider some items to be enforceable because, with very limited exceptions, Assembly Bill x1 26 does not recognize agreements between a redevelopment agency and the city that created it.  The recommended course of action for the Successor Agency at this time is to take advantage of a clause in AB x1 26 that allows a Successor Agency to re-enter into an agreement with the City.  Health and Safety Code Section 34178 (a) provides, in part, “that a successor entity wishing to enter or reenter into agreements with the city…..that formed the redevelopment agency that it is succeeding may do so upon obtaining the approval of its oversight board.” 

The goal of this action is to protect funds owed to the City, while also reducing the debt burden of the Successor Agency.  Accordingly, the Finance Department is proposing reduction of the interest rate on the City loans from 6% to 3%, a rate more consistent with current yields, and acceleration of the repayment of the Gateway and TORPA loans to satisfy debt of the former Redevelopment Agency expeditiously.

RECOMMENDATION:  is recommended by the Finance Department and the Economic Development and Housing Department that the Council of the City of Santa Rosa approve, by resolutions, the following:  Promissory Notes (1) to re-enter into a modified loan agreement for the Gateway Redevelopment Project Area, (2) to re-enter into a modified loan agreement for the Transit Oriented Redevelopment Project Area, (3) to re-enter into a modified loan agreement for the Merged Santa Rosa Center/Grace Brothers Redevelopment Project Area, thereby reaffirming loans between the City and the former Redevelopment Agency; and authorize, by resolution, the following:  (4) to re-enter into a funding agreement for Gateway Economic Development Program, thereby reaffirming agreements between the City and the former Redevelopment Agency.

 5.       ADJOURN SPECIAL MEETING

No other business will be considered by the City Council at this Special Meeting.

Dated:      June 22, 2012                                                     Terri A. Griffin, City Clerk
