10/8/2013 Council Preview – Butcher’s Corner

Sorry for the lateness.  There’s a lot going on.  And there will be a lot going on at this meeting.

We start the evening with Board and Commission interviews, followed by a closed session regarding a lawsuit that has been filed against the City by San Francisco Baykeeper.

The general meeting starts with a couple of fun special orders.  First up is recognizing National Arts and Humanities Month.  This is followed by an annual event that’s always a good time – the annual Fire Safety Poster contest.

There’s a fair sized consent calendar, including a crime prevention grant and a Homeland Security grant, a pavement contract, and second reading of the Payday Lending Establishments ordinance.  Staff is also recommending rejection of a bid for electric golf carts and putting it out for rebid.

Item 2 involves the frontage road issue along Mathilda in the Downtown, but staff is requesting it be continued so that the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission can weigh in.

Item 3 is an update on the progress in our City Manager recruitment.

Item 4 is the big one – consideration of annexing Butcher’s Corner and another chunk of land near Central Expressway.  Staff is recommending annexing the Central Expressway parcel but leaving Butcher’s Corner un-annexed for the time being.

Item 5 involves the ordinance that Council requested for increasing project review in the Peery Park area until such time as the Peery Park Specific Plan is finished.

And item 6 is another big one – possibly reconfiguring Mary from Remington to Maude to support bike lanes.  There are a lot of options, and this may involve removing lanes or parking, so it’s a big issue.

That’s about it.
