[6.III. GENERAL PLAN TEXT AMENDMENT NO. GPTA16-004, ZONE CHANGE NO. ZC16- 003, AND COMMUNITY PLAN NO. CP16-003]

GENERAL PLAN TEXT AMENDMENT NUMBER GPTA 16-004.

>> MR. CHAIRMAN, IF I CAN JUST GIVE MAYBE DIANA'S SECOND TO GET INTO THE SEA.

JUST WANTED TO REALLY USE THIS AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO ACKNOWLEDGE A LOT OF HARD WORK OVER MANY YEARS TO ACTUALLY GET THE WINTON COMMUNITY PLAN UPDATE IN FRONT OF THIS BODY AND THEN ULTIMATELY HOPEFULLY IN FRONT OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE STAFF, CONSULTANTS, AND THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE, ALL OF WHOM WERE INCREDIBLY PARTICIPATORY IN THIS PROCESS, WHICH I THINK MS. LAWRENCE IS GOING TO PROBABLY SPEAK TO.

BUT CERTAINLY AS WE HEAD INTO THIS PRESENTATION WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT JUST TO ACKNOWLEDGE ALL OF THOSE WHO PUT IN A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT AND HARD WORK TO PUT THIS IN FRONT OF YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION AND POTENTIAL RECOMMENDATION TODAY.

>> THANK YOU. DIANA.

>> GOOD MORNING, CHAIR, COMMISSIONERS, THIS LAST ITEM, AS THE DIRECTOR SAID, IS THE WINTON COMMUNITY PLAN UPDATE COMMUNITY PLAN NUMBER CP 16-002 GENERAL PLAN TEXT AMENDMENT GPTA 16-004, AND ZONE CHANGE NUMBER ZC 16-003.

AS THE DIRECTOR SAID, THIS IS QUITE A MOMENTOUS OCCASION FOR BOTH WINTON AND MERCED COUNTY.

WHAT IS A COMMUNITY PLAN? A COMMUNITY PLAN IS A LONG RANGE VISION AND A LAND-USE STRATEGY FOR THE PURPOSE OF GUIDING GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT IN A DEFINED GEOGRAPHIC AREA OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME.

COMMUNITY PLAN SERVES AS A PORTION OF THE LAND-USE ELEMENT OF THE MERCED COUNTY GENERAL PLAN, AND THE CURRENT SPECIFIC PLAN FOR WINTON WAS ADOPTED IN DECEMBER 1981.

JUST TO GET A SENSE OF HOW LONG AGO THAT WAS RONALD REAGAN WAS PRESIDENT.

[00:15:03]

TO TALK ABOUT WHERE LOW WINTON IS, AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, WINTON IS LOCATED JUST NORTH OF THE CITY OF ATWATER, WEST OF CASTLE AIRPORT, AND IS APPROXIMATELY EIGHT MILES NORTHWEST OF THE CITY OF MERCED.

WINTON WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1911/1912.

ITS EARLY HISTORY IS CLOSELY TIED TO BOTH THE RAILROAD AND WHAT WAS ONCE CASTLE AIR FORCE BASE.

WINTON IS STILL BISECTED BY THE BNSF RAILROAD, WHICH RUNS PARALLEL TO SANTA FE AVENUE, NORTHWEST-SOUTHEAST DIRECTION, AND WINTON IS LARGELY CHARACTERIZED BY SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES SURROUNDING A SMALL CORE OF COMMERCIAL USES, AND THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY IS SURROUNDED BY AGRICULTURAL USES.

AS A DIRECTOR SAID, WORK ON THIS COMMUNITY PLAN UPDATE BEGAN IN 2011 AND IS THE RESULT OF A COLLABORATIVE PROCESS INVOLVING MANY PEOPLE, INCLUDING COMMUNITY MEMBERS, BUSINESS OWNERS, THE WINTON MUNICIPAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE, CONSULTANTS AND LOCAL AGENCY AND COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STUFF, BOTH PAST AND CURRENT.

I BELIEVE I SAID THERE WERE THREE COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS AND ACTUALITY, THERE WERE FOUR COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS.

TWO WERE HELD IN 2011 ONE IN 2016, AND ONE IN 2018.

PRIOR TO THE FIRST WORKSHOPS, BILINGUAL COMMUNITY SURVEY WAS SENT OUT TO ALL WINTON COMMUNITY SERVICE DISTRICT CUSTOMERS TO GAIN COMMUNITY INSIGHT.

OVERALL, THE WORKSHOPS HELPED TO IDENTIFY COMMUNITY ISSUES, DISCUSS ALTERNATIVE GROWTH SCENARIOS AND TO PREPARE A VISION FOR THE COMMUNITY.

COMMUNITY PRIORITIES THAT WERE ESTABLISHED AT THE VARIOUS WORKSHOPS ARE ILLUSTRATED IN THE PLAN IN CHAPTER 1.

I'VE LISTED THEM HERE, BUT I'M GOING TO ONLY HIGHLIGHT THREE KEY ONES.

THE FIRST WAS TO ADD SIDEWALKS TO STREETS, TO ADD MORE PARKS, AND TO PROVIDE THE COMMUNITY WITH MORE JOB OPPORTUNITIES.

CHAPTER 3 OF THE PLAN CONTAINS THE VISION STATEMENT, WHICH WAS PREPARED ON BEHALF OF THE WINTON COMMUNITY, AND GUIDED BY PUBLIC INPUT AT THE WORKSHOPS.

THE CHAPTER ALSO INCLUDES SEVEN GUIDING PRINCIPLES WHICH EXPRESS THE VISION INTO MEASURABLE STANDARDS FOR EACH COMPONENT OF THE PLAN AND THE VISION STATEMENT IS THAT WINTON ENVISIONS A BALANCE OF LAND USES, THAT ANTICIPATE RESIDENT'S ECONOMIC, SOCIAL, AND ENVIRONMENTAL NEEDS.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS EMPHASIZE AND STRENGTHEN WINTON SMALL TOWN AGRICULTURAL, RESIDENTIAL IDENTITY, CAPITALIZING ON THE EXISTING COMMUNITY ASSETS IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING NEW GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES.

THE WINTON COMMUNITY PLAN, WHICH YOU CAN SEE THE COVER HERE, IS COMPRISED OF 10 CHAPTERS AND AN APPENDIX.

AS THE STAFF REPORT OUTLINES THE PURPOSE OF EACH CHAPTER.

IN THIS PRESENTATION, I WILL ONLY HIGHLIGHT KEY CHAPTERS.

FIRST, LET'S TALK ABOUT THE PROPOSED PLAN BOUNDARIES.

AS YOU COULD SEE, THE BOUNDARY OF THE COMMUNITY PLAN IS OUTLINED IN BLACK AND ANOTHER CORRECTION IN THE STAFF REPORT, I SAID THAT THE BOUNDARIES OF THE PROPOSED PLAN WOULD BE COTERMINOUS WITH THE EXISTING PLAN BOUNDARIES, EXCEPT IN THREE AREAS AND ACTUALITY, THE PROPOSED PLAN AREAS DIFFER IN FIVE AREAS AS SHOWN.

THE GREEN CIRCLED AREAS ARE AREAS THAT WERE ACTUALLY HIGHLIGHTED TO THE COMMUNITY PLAN AND THE RED AREAS SHOWN HERE WERE REMOVED FROM THE COMMUNITY PLAN.

THIS SLIDE SHOWS THE ESTIMATED PROPERTY POPULATION GROWTH IN WINTON TO 2040.

EARLY ON IN THE PROCESS, THE COMMUNITY AGREED THAT A MODEST GROWTH SCENARIO, WHICH WAS BASED ON THE AVERAGE ANNUAL GROWTH RATE IN THE COUNTY FROM 2000-2017 WAS A SOUND BASELINE FOR PLANNING FOR WINTON.

BASED ON THAT GROWTH SCENARIO IN 2040 WINTON WOULD HAVE OR COULD HAVE A POPULATION OF 14,618 PERSONS.

HOWEVER, BECAUSE THE LAND USE MAP CAN ACCOMMODATE A POPULATION OF 15,553 PERSONS.

JUST TO BE CONSERVATIVE, THE EIR ANALYSIS IS BASED ON THAT LARGER NUMBER.

THIS NEXT SLIDE SHOWS THE PROPOSED RESIDENTIAL LAND USES IN THE COMMUNITY.

AS YOU CAN SEE, RESIDENTIAL LAND USES MAKE UP

[00:20:03]

THE LARGEST LAND USE CATEGORY IN THE PLAN AREA, WITH SOME 932 ACRES.

CURRENTLY, THERE ARE 2,995 DWELLING UNITS, AND BUILD OUT THE AREA HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR AN ADDITIONAL 1,633 DWELLING UNITS.

THIS NEXT SLIDE SHOWS THE PROPOSED COMMERCIAL LAND USES IN THE COMMUNITY.

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE COMMERCIAL LAND USES ARE CLUSTERED ALONG THE MAJOR ROADS.

SANTA FE AND WINTON WAY.

COMMERCIAL LAND USES INCLUDE GENERAL COMMERCIAL, NEIGHBORHOOD, COMMERCIAL, COMMERCIAL TRANSITION, AND MIXED USE, AND ACCOUNT FOR SOME 50 ACRES OF LAND USES IN THE COMMUNITY.

THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY 285,000 SQUARE FEET OF EXISTING COMMERCIAL USES AND WITH THE PLAN, THERE'S THE POTENTIAL FOR AN ADDITIONAL SET 473,000 SQUARE FEET OF ADDITIONAL COMMERCIAL.

THE NEXT SLIDE SHOWS THE INSTITUTIONAL RECREATIONAL LAND USES.

AS I MENTIONED IN THE STAFF REPORT, WINTON IS SHORT ON PARKLAND CURRENTLY, AND AT BUILD OUT WE'LL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL PARKLAND.

WELL, NO PARKS ARE CURRENTLY PROPOSED.

THE COMMUNITY PLAN DOES INDICATE POTENTIAL AREAS WITH GREEN CIRCLES, AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE MAP FOR PARKS, AS RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OCCURS.

AT BUILD OUT, THE PLAN AREA WILL NEED AN ESTIMATED 23 ACRES OF ADDITIONAL PARKLAND.

THE BUSINESS PARKLAND USE ALLOWS FOR CLEAN, LOW-INTENSITY LAND USES SUCH AS OFFICE CENTERS, RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT FACILITIES, WAREHOUSE AND DISTRIBUTION CENTERS, AND 78 ACRES IS PROVIDED IN THE PLAN REFLECTING THE DESIRE OF THE COMMUNITY TO ATTRACT MORE JOBS.

INDUSTRIAL LAND USES, WHICH I'VE CIRCLED IN WHITE ON THE MAP BECAUSE IT'S A LITTLE BIT HARD TO SEE, COMPRISE NINE ACRES AND IS CURRENTLY ENTIRELY OWNED BY THE BNSFS RAILROAD.

CHAPTER 9 IN THE PLAN ADDRESSES THE COMMUNITY'S DESIRE TO CREATE A LIVELY AND ATTRACTIVE DOWNTOWN AND TO IMPROVE THE LOOK OF THE COMMUNITY.

CHAPTER 9 IS THE DESIGN CHAPTER, AND IT ESTABLISHES DESIGN GUIDELINES THAT WOULD APPLY TO ANY NEW DEVELOPMENT OR REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT IN THE WINTON PLAN AREA.

THESE GUIDELINES REFLECT THE CURRENT BEST PRACTICES IN THE FIELDS OF ARCHITECTURE, URBAN DESIGN, AND LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE, BRINGING WINTON INTO THE 21ST CENTURY.

DESIGN LINES ARE PROVIDED FOR RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL, AND BUSINESS PARK USES AND INCLUDE SITE DESIGN, MASSING, AND BUILDING FORM, ARTICULATION, SIGNAGE, MATERIALS AND COLORS, GARAGE AND UTILITY LOCATION, LANDSCAPING, OPEN SPACE, SCREENING, AND PARKING.

CONTINUING THE CIRCULATION CHAPTER INDICATES LOCATIONS FOR PRIORITY SIDEWALKS.

ON THE DIAGRAM AS YOU CAN SEE, THE EXISTING SIDEWALKS ARE INDICATED IN GREEN AND POTENTIAL SIDEWALKS ARE INDICATED IN RED.

THIS WAS ONE OF THE MAJOR THEMES STAFF HEARD FROM COMMUNITY MEMBERS DURING WORKSHOPS, AND AS A RESULT, WE HAVE IDENTIFIED THESE LOCATIONS FOR POTENTIAL SIDEWALKS.

THIS NEXT SLIDE SHOWS EXISTING AND PROPOSED BICYCLE FACILITIES.

EXISTING CLASS II BIKE LANES, WHICH ARE DESIGNATED BY STRIPING, WHICH IS USUALLY ADJACENT TO THE VEHICLE TRAFFIC, ARE SHOWN ON WINTON WAY WITH THE SOLID BLUE LINE AND A SHORT SEGMENT, AND ALSO IN A DASHED ORANGE LINE.

PROPOSED CLASS II BIKE LANES ARE SHOWN WITH A DASHED GREEN LINE, AND PROPOSED CLASS I PATHS, WHICH ARE ENTIRELY SEPARATED FROM TRAFFIC ARE SHOWED WITH THE DASHED YELLOW LINE.

PUBLIC FACILITIES.

WINTON WATER AND WASTEWATER SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY THE WINTON WATER AND SEWER DISTRICT.

THE WATER SUPPLY IS FROM THE MERCED GROUNDWATER BASIN AND THE CITY OF ATWATER PROVIDES WASTEWATER SERVICES.

THESE ARE ADDRESSED IN THIS CHAPTER, AND THE WINTON AND WATER SUPPLY ASSESSMENT PREPARED FOR

[00:25:03]

THE EIR FOUND THAT IT BUILT OUT OF THE PLAN, WINTON WOULD NEED ONE ADDITIONAL WELL, IN ADDITION TO THE TRANSMISSION LINES TO SUPPORT THE BUILD-OUT OF THE COMMUNITY PLAN.

ADDITIONALLY, THE WASTEWATER COLLECTION AND DISTRIBUTION STUDY FOUND THAT FUTURE GROUNDWATER SUPPLIES MAY THE MERCED GROUNDWATER BASIN WAS CLASSIFIED AS BEING IN CRITICAL OVERDRAFT BY THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF WATER RESOURCES IN 2015.

ADDITIONALLY, THE EIR FOUND THAT ATWATER SEWER TREATMENT PLANT HAS THE CAPACITY TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY AT BUILDUP, HOWEVER, CURRENT AGREEMENTS WOULD HAVE TO BE MODIFIED.

CONTINUING PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN WINTON, THERE ARE THREE K-8 SCHOOLS WHICH ARE OPERATED BY THE WINTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT.

THERE'S ONE MIDDLE-SCHOOL.

GENERALLY, HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN WINTON ATTEND ATWATER HIGH.

THE EIR FOUND THAT AT BUILD-OUT SCHOOLS WOULD HAVE TO BE EXPANDED AND THERE WOULD HAVE TO BE ONE ADDITIONAL SCHOOL.

THESE NEXT SLIDES, I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW PROCESS FOR THE COMMUNITY PLAN UPDATE.

PER CEQA, THE PURPOSE OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT IS TO PROVIDE PUBLIC AGENCIES AND THE PUBLIC DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT THE EFFECT A PROPOSED PROJECT IS LIKELY TO HAVE ON THE ENVIRONMENT.

TO LIST WAYS IN WHICH THE SIGNIFICANT EFFECTS OF A PROJECT MIGHT BE MITIGATED AND TO INDICATE ALTERNATIVES TO A PROJECT.

FOR THE COMMUNITY PLAN UPDATE A PROGRAM EIR WAS PREPARED.

GENERALLY, A PROGRAM EIR EVALUATES THE IMPACTS OF A SERIES OF ACTIONS THAT CAN BE CHARACTERIZED AS ONE LARGE PROJECT.

TO TALK ABOUT THE PROCESS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FOR WINTON, I'VE LISTED SOME KEY POINTS HERE.

THERE WAS AN INITIAL STUDY PREPARED THAT FOCUSED THE EIRS ANALYSIS.

SUBSEQUENT TO THAT THE CONSULTANTS PREPARED A NOTICE OF PREPARATION, FOLLOWING THAT, THERE WAS A SCOPING MEETING AND FOLLOWING THAT, A DRAFT EIR WAS PREPARED AND RELEASED FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS.

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE PUBLIC COMMENT DATES ARE LISTED THERE.

THEN FINALLY, IN MARCH THIS MONTH, THE FINAL EIR WAS RELEASED, WHICH INCLUDES CHANGES TO THE DRAFT EIR, THE LIST OF COMMENTERS, COMMENTS, THE RESPONSES TO COMMENTS, AND THE MITIGATION MONITORING PROGRAM.

STAFF RECEIVED FOUR COMMENTS ON THE DRAFT EIR DURING THE PUBLIC REVIEW PERIOD AND THE COMMENT LETTERS AND THE RESPONSES TO THOSE COMMENTS CAN BE FOUND IN CHAPTER 4 OF THE FINAL EIR.

CONTINUING ONE OF THE PURPOSES OF THE EIR IS TO PROVIDE DETAILED INFORMATION ON THE ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS A PROJECT IS LIKELY TO HAVE ON THE ENVIRONMENT.

BECAUSE SOME OF THE IMPACTS FROM IMPLEMENTING IT WENT TO COMMUNITY PLAN COULD NOT BE AVOIDED OR MITIGATED TO LESS THAN SIGNIFICANT LEVELS THE COUNTY IS REQUIRED TO ADOPT WHAT'S CALLED A STATEMENT OF OVERRIDING CONSIDERATIONS.

THAT IS BASICALLY A STATEMENT OF THE LEAD AGENCY'S VIEW ON THE MERITS OF APPROVING A PROJECT DESPITE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS.

THE STATEMENT FOR THE WINTON COMMUNITY PLAN UPDATE IS LOCATED IN THE CEQA FINDINGS OF FACTS AND STATEMENT OF OVERRIDING CONSIDERATIONS, WHICH IS EXHIBIT G. JUST TO TALK ABOUT WHAT THE BENEFITS OF ADOPTING THE COMMUNITY PLAN, I'VE LISTED SEVERAL HERE.

OBVIOUSLY PROVIDE HOUSING TO MEET THE GROWING DEMAND, PROVIDE A MIX OF HOUSING TYPES.

FURTHER, OUR GENERAL PLAN AMENDMENT POLICIES REGARDING THE PRESERVATION OF AGRICULTURAL, OF AG IN THE COUNTY.

PROVIDE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, PROVIDE MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR RESIDENTS TO SHOP IN WORK AND WINTON, AND PLAN FOR EXPANDED PUBLIC SERVICES AND UTILITIES TO IMPROVE PEDESTRIAN AND BICYCLE SAFETY IN WINTON AND TO ALSO REVITALIZE DOWNTOWN WINTON.

I KNOW THAT'S A LOT OF INFORMATION, SO AT THIS POINT, I WILL PAUSE FOR QUESTIONS BEFORE GETTING INTO STAFF'S RECOMMENDATIONS.

>> WELL, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU GUYS PUT A TON OF WORK IN THIS AND I REALLY APPRECIATE THAT, AND KNOWING THAT AREA WELL, WHAT A BUNCH OF IMPROVEMENTS THAT WOULD BRING, A FEW QUESTIONS AND I DON'T KNOW THAT THIS WAS A PART OF YOUR SCOPE OF WORK, BUT LIKE WHEN WE TALK ABOUT PARKS, A FUNDING MECHANISM FOR THAT, WOULD THAT BE IMPACT ALLOTMENT, AND IS THAT PART OF WHAT YOU GUYS ARE LOOKING AT WHEN YOU PUT THIS TOGETHER?

[00:30:04]

THEN MY OTHER ONE WOULD BE LIKE IF YOU LOOK AT SIDEWALK ISSUES, I WOULD THINK ARE IN EXISTING DEVELOPMENTS MORE THAN NEW DEVELOPMENTS, SO HOW WOULD YOU FUND THOSE TO ADDRESS THOSE ISSUES?

>> WELL, FOR NEW PARKS, THEY WOULD BE FUNDED BY NEW RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT.

I BELIEVE IT WOULD BE AN IMPACT FEE.

>> MR. CHAIR JUST TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION.

STEVE MAXEY, DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF PLANNING FOR THE COUNTY.

WITH REGARD TO PARKS, WE'D ADDRESS THIS SIMILARLY TO OTHER COMMUNITY PLANS THAT WE'VE ADOPTED.

FOR EXAMPLE, THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS AND EVEN GOING BACK TO HOME AREN'T DELHI, WHICH WERE ADOPTED IN THE MID 2000S THERE.

THERE ARE TWO WAYS THAT PASSING YOUR BUILT.

ONE WOULD BE DEVELOPED ALONGSIDE NEW DEVELOPMENTS.

PRIVATE DEVELOPERS COME IN, THEY INCLUDE A PARK AT A RATIO THAT'S IDENTIFIED IN THAT COMMUNITY PLAN AND IT'S USUALLY ABOUT THREE ACRES PER 1000 PEOPLE IS WHAT WE SHOOT FOR AS A TARGET FOR THE COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE.

THE OTHER OPTION WOULD BE THE DEVELOPER SAYS, MY DEVELOPMENT IS MAYBE TOO SMALL, IT CAN'T ACCOMMODATE A PARK, IT DOESN'T WORK FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS AND THEY WOULD PAY WHAT WE CALL AN NLU FEES.

IN THEY'D PAY A FEE THAT WOULD GO INTO THE COUNTY'S COFFERS THAT WE COULD THEN USE TO DEVELOP A PARK OR IMPROVE A PARK FOR THE COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE.

SIDEWALKS WOULD BE BUILT IN A SIMILAR NATURE ALONGSIDE NEW PRIVATE DEVELOPMENTS.

IF THE COMMUNITY PLAN WHERE WE'VE OUTLINED A NEED FOR EXPANDED SIDEWALK ACCESS OR MODIFICATIONS TO EXISTING STREETS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY PLAN.

THEY WOULD BUILD THOSE SIDEWALKS ALONGSIDE THAT DEVELOPMENT, ALONG THEIR FRONTAGE.

SOMETIMES THERE'S A NEED FOR OFFSET IMPROVEMENTS, THAT SORT OF THING.

THE OTHER EFFORT THAT WE DIDN'T REALLY TALK ABOUT HERE, BUT WE'VE WORKED ON ALONGSIDE THIS WAS THE WALK-ABLE WINTON PLAN THAT WILL BRING BACK THIS LATER DOCUMENT HERE, BUT WE WORKED WITH THE COMMUNITY AND THEN A DIFFERENT CONSULTANT THAN WHAT WE WORKED WITH ON THE COMMUNITY PLAN HERE TO IDENTIFY WHERE ARE THOSE GAPS AND IMPROVEMENTS CAN BE MADE TO THE PEDESTRIAN BICYCLE SYSTEMS THERE IN WINTON.

COMMUNITY CAME UP WITH A WHOLE BUNCH OF GREAT IDEAS, THINGS THAT WE'LL BE TARGETING ALONGSIDE PUBLIC WORKS TO TRY TO BRING TO THE COMMUNITY AND REALLY EXPAND THE PEDESTRIAN ACCESS BY PURSUING STATE OR FEDERAL MONEY OR AS MEASURE V, FUNDING BECOMES AVAILABLE.

THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT WE COULD LOOK AT TO IMPROVE THE SIDEWALK ACCESS THROUGH WITH THEM. YES

>> YOU HAVE MY MIC, WELL THANK YOU AND LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THAT.

DOES ANY MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR STAFF? SEEING NONE AT THIS POINT, WE WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING ON THIS.

ANY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC WANT TO COME SPEAK? SEEING NONE, WE'LL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND THEN MAYBE IT CAN HELP ME NAVIGATE THROUGH HERE.

WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING ON THE SCREEN FOR ARE WE GOING TO ASK TO ACCEPT THE FINDINGS OF THE REPORT OR

>> MS. LAWRENCE IF YOU COULD GO AHEAD

>> OKAY. I WANTED TO CORRECT SOMETHING.

THE NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR THIS ITEM WAS PUBLISHED ON FEBRUARY 26 AND MOVING ON TO THE RECOMMENDATION, STAFF HAS TWO RECOMMENDATIONS AND I DO HAVE A CORRECTION TO POINT OUT IN THE CEQA RECOMMENDATION.

THE STAFF RECOMMENDS THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMEND THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS APPROVE THAT JULY 2020 WATER SUPPLY ASSESSMENT, WHICH I'VE HIGHLIGHTED IN RED.

I BELIEVE THAT SAID SOMETHING DIFFERENT BUT THAT IS WHAT YOU WOULD BE RECOMMENDING APPROVAL FOR.

CERTIFY, THE FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT, ADOPT THE CEQA FINDINGS OF FACT, THE STATEMENT OF OVERRIDING CONSIDERATIONS AND THE MITIGATION MONITORING PROGRAM FOR THE WENT TO COMMUNITY PLAN AND STAFF ALSO RECOMMENDS THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMEND THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS ADOPT THE RESOLUTION, ADOPTING THE WINTON COMMUNITY PLAN, THE GENERAL PLAN TEXT AMENDMENT, AND ADOPT THE ORDINANCE, APPROVING THE ZONE CHANGES BASED ON THE PROJECT FINDING STATED IN THE STAFF REPORT AND I'LL LEAVE THAT UP.

>> THANK YOU. AT THIS TIME, WE'LL BRING IT BACK TO THE COMMISSION AND WHAT IS THE WILL THE COMMISSION, WOULD ANYBODY ENTERTAIN THE MOTION?

>> I'LL MAKE A MOTION THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDS THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS APPROVES THE JULY 2020 WATER SUPPLY ASSESSMENT, CERTIFY THE FILE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT, AND ADOPT THE SECRET FINDINGS OF FACT, THE STATEMENT OF OVERRIDING CONSIDERATION, AND THE MITIGATION MONITORING PROGRAM FOR THE WINTON COMMUNITY PLAN.

>> THANK YOU. WE HAVE A MOTION. DO WE HAVE A SECOND?

[00:35:01]

WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND.

>> WE'LL CALL FOR THE VOTE.

ALL IN FAVOR?

>> AYE.

>> CHAIR VOTES AYE. ALL OPPOSED.

NAY. IT'S UNANIMOUS AYE MOVING FORWARD WITH THE PROJECT,.

>> I'LL MAKE THE MOTION THAT THE PLANNING COMMISSION RECOMMENDS THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS ADOPT THE RESOLUTION ADOPTING THE WINTON COMMUNITY PLAN.

COMMUNITY PLAN NUMBER CP ONE SIX DASH ZERO, ZERO, THREE AND GENERAL PLAN TEXT AMENDMENT NUMBER GPT A ONE SIX DASH ZERO, ZERO, FOUR AND ADOPT THE ORDINANCE APPROVING ZONE CHANGE NUMBER ZC ONE SIX ZERO, ZERO, THREE, BASED ON THE PROJECT FINDING STATED AND STAFF REPORT.

>> SECOND.

>> THANK YOU. WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND NOW WE'LL MOVE FORWARD WITH THE VOTE.

ALL IN FAVOR?

>> AYE.

>> CHAIR VOTES AYE. ALL OPPOSED.

NAY. THAT WOULD PASS UNANIMOUSLY ALSO.

AND THEN NOW, MOVING ON TO COMMISSIONER ACTION ITEMS.

[7.I. 2020 GENERAL PLAN PROGRESS REPORT]

>> MR. CHAIRMAN, YOU DO HAVE AN ITEM.

THIS IS ONE THAT WE TYPICALLY BRING Q ON AN ANNUAL BASIS, WHICH IS, AS REQUIRED BY GOVERNMENT CODE, SECTION SIX, FIVE, FOUR, ZERO, ZERO B.

WE ARE OBLIGATED TO, ON AN ANNUAL BASIS, DO A GENERAL PLAN, ANNUAL PROGRESS REPORT.

WHILE THERE'S NO STAFF PRESENTATION TODAY, EACH OF YOU DO HAVE AS A PART OF YOUR PACKETS, WE ARE SEEKING YOUR RECOMMENDATION FOR YOUR STAFF TO THEN FORWARD IT TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS FOR THEIR CONSIDERATION, AT WHICH TIME WE WOULD THEN.

SEND AND FORWARD THE REPORT TO THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE OF PLANNING RESEARCH, AGAIN, CONSISTENT WITH STATE EXPECTATIONS.

MR. CHAIRMAN, YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES DO HAVE THIS AS A PART OF YOUR COMMISSION PACKETS.

STAFF WOULD BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU MAY HAVE, BUT WE ARE SIMPLY SEEKING YOUR RECOMMENDATION TO TAKE TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS.

>> AND HOW WOULD YOU RECOMMEND WE DO THAT WITH A ROLL CALL VOTE OR

>> I WOULD CERTAINLY ENCOURAGE NO DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHER ITEM, A MOTION IF I COULD HELP GUIDE A LITTLE BIT A MOTION RECOMMENDING THAT THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS ULTIMATELY ACCEPT THE GENERAL PLANNING A PROGRESS REPORT AND TO FURTHER DIRECT STAFF AS A PART OF THEIR RECOMMENDATION TO FORWARD A COPY OF THAT REPORT TO THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE OF PLANNING AND RESEARCH AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

>> WOULD ANYONE LIKE TO AGREE TO THAT MOTION?

>> I'LL MAKE THE MOTION THAT WE RECOMMEND THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS ACCEPT THE GENERAL PLAN, ANNUAL PROGRESS REPORT, AND DIRECT STAFF TO FORWARD A COPY OF THE REPORT TO THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE OF PLANNING AND RESEARCH, AND THE STATEMENT, DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.

>> SECOND.

>> THANK YOU. WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND.

ALL IN FAVOR OF THIS?

>> AYE.

>> AYE.

>> CHAIR VOTES AYE ALL OPPOSED.

NAY. THAT WOULD BE A UNANIMOUS.

I'M GOING FORWARD WITH THAT.

AT THIS POINT DIRECTOR'S REPORT,

[8. DIRECTOR'S REPORT]

REALLY NOTHING ADDITIONAL AT THIS TIME OTHER THAN JUST TO SAY, WE REALLY APPRECIATE THE WORK THAT STAFF HAS UNDERTAKEN.

OBVIOUSLY, I THINK THE CHAIRMAN DID A VERY NICE JOB OF ACKNOWLEDGING THE WORK THAT HAS GONE INTO THE WINTON COMMUNITY PLAN, I THINK IS MS. LAWRENCE WHO WELL HIGHLIGHTED, THIS GOES BACK A LONG WAY.

WHAT YOU HAVE JUST DONE AS A PART OF MAKING A RECOMMENDATION TO THE BOARD, I THINK IS GOING TO SET THE STAGE FOR SOLID DEVELOPMENT IN THAT COMMUNITY FOR DECADES TO COME.

IT'S NOT TOO OFTEN THAT WE'VE GOT TO THE OPPORTUNITY TO POSITIVELY IMPACT COMMUNITIES ON A WIDESPREAD BASIS.

BUT IF YOU LOOK AT MS. LAWRENCE'S PRESENTATION, YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT MR. MAXEY TALKED ABOUT WITH REGARD TO IMPROVING WALK-ABILITY AND JUST PEDESTRIAN ACCESS.

WHAT YOU JUST DID IS A PART OF YOUR RECOMMENDATION IS REALLY SETTING THE STAGE FOR A MORE VIBRANT, HEALTHIER COMMUNITY AND THE COMMUNITY OF WINTON IN THE YEARS TO COME.

CERTAINLY I WANT TO APPLAUD EACH OF YOU.

CERTAINLY WANT TO APPLAUD THE STAFF WHO JUST PUT AN EXTRAORDINARY TIME AND EFFORT.

THEN CERTAINLY, THE ONE THING I DO WANT TO UNDERSCORE, AND I MENTIONED THIS IN MY EARLIER COMMENTS, THIS IS ALL REFLECTIVE OF THE COMMUNITY.

MS. LAWRENCE CERTAINLY TALKED ABOUT HAVING MULTIPLE COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS AND A LOT OF DIALOGUE WITH THE COMMUNITY.

WHAT YOU JUST DID WAS REFLECTIVE OF WHAT THE COMMUNITY IS SEEKING IN THE COMMUNITY OF WINTON ITSELF.

I APPLAUD EACH OF YOU, VERY WELL DONE AND STAFF WILL BE IN THE WEEKS AND MONTHS AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO TAKE THAT TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS FOR AN ADOPTION.

WE HOPE AND HOPEFULLY PUT THE COMMUNITY OF WINTON INTO THE LIMELIGHT FOR A DAY OR TWO. THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN.

>> THANK YOU. COMMISSIONERS' COMMENTS? YES, FERNANDO?

[9. COMMISSIONER'S COMMENT]

>> YES I GOT ONE COMMENT.

BASICALLY, RECOMMENDATION WHEN WE SEND THE NOTE IS FOR EACH ITEM.

CAN WE ADD ON THE REPORT LIKE HOW MANY COMMUNITY MEMBERS RECEIVE THIS NOTICE.

>> I THINK GENERALLY SPEAKING,

[00:40:02]

A QUICK ANSWER IS PROBABLY YES.

WE CAN CERTAINLY DO THAT IF YOU'RE SPEAKING, I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'VE GOT SOME CLARITY.

IF YOU ARE SPEAKING WITH REGARD TO THE 300 FOOT NOTICE, WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH OUR NOTICING PRACTICES.

I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE COULD PROBABLY DO TO GIVE YOU IF NOTHING ELSE, AT LEAST, A ROUGH IDEA AS TO HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD HAVE RECEIVED THAT NOTICE.

AGAIN, WE'D BE HAPPY TO MAKE THAT ADJUSTMENT.

>> ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU.

>> YOU'RE WELCOME

>> ANY OTHER COMMISSIONER'S COMMENTS? SEEING NONE, WE WILL ADJOURN. THANK YOU, EVERYONE.
