PUBLIC COMMENT

As an added layer of protection, all public comment was conducted at the beginning of the meeting. Comments related to specific agenda items are incorporated into the item discussion.
  Police Department Practices - Sharalyn Hamilton and Samuel Edison raised questions concerning the Police Department's practices and policies, especially as they relate to a video of Stanley Clayborne, which they claim Mr. Clayborne is being treated with extreme measures during a traffic stop in front of his home, They urged the Council to work together as a community to ensure that all citizens are treated fairly and that our city is safe for all its citizens regardless of race and ethnicity.

Parks & Funding Sources - Dennis Bell expressed concerns with the recently approved Grove School lease in Heritage Park and was worried the Council is limiting the public access to parks. He mentioned the proceeds from the Palmetto Grove sale and was displeased that funds were directed for the use of open space, citrus groves and parks, with the parks funding going towards what he called the boondoggle skatepark. He added police and fire received little, and he complained about the City’s mismanagement: Luxuries instead of essentials.

Yes on County Measure K - Alvaro Valenzuela and Natalie Zuk both worked collecting signatures to help get Measure K placed on the November 2020 ballot. Measure K calls for County Supervisors to be paid $60,000, to match the median household income of San Bernardino County residents, whereas they stated that right now the supervisors make over a quarter of a million dollars every year. They strongly encouraged the residents of Redlands to vote 'Yes 'on Measure K and 'No' on Measure J, which they cited, the Supervisors have placed this initiative on the ballot to try to secure their current 12-year term limit and their $250,000 pay.

Deployment/Assessment Study and Standards of Coverage Technical Report
  Fire Chief Topoleski introduced Chief Samuel Mazza, of Citygate Associates, LLC, who presented a detailed deployment/assessment study of the Fire Department. The report provided critical information and was meant to analyze and evaluate current practices and to chart a course for the future deployment of facilities, staffing and operations. The department has faced change and growth within the community and a steady increase in call volume in recent years. Citygate performed data-based analysis, including internal stakeholder participation that will culminate in a five-year strategic plan to ensure the success and sustainability of the department for years to come. The scope of the study focused on three areas of review, Deployment Analysis - Standards of Cover Assessment, Organizational Review and Evaluation and 5-Year Strategic Plan.

As public comment, Dennis Bell asked why the consultant presented a report tonight when he thought the study was supposed to be delivered to Council in December. He thought it interesting this item showed up right before the election which he stated was a justification for passage of the sales tax increase and the huge sewer and water rate increase next spring to rebuild of the neglected sewage treatment plant. He stated the financial woes the City may be facing was due to mismanagement and misdirected spending priorities.

The City Council unanimously agreed to receive and file the report on the results of the Fire Department Deployment/Assessment Study and Standards of Coverage Technical Report from Citygate Associates, LLC.

Updates include: As of July 2020, the City has successfully implemented the State Street Promenade on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays where restaurants in the downtown area can serve the public via outdoor dining. This has allowed restaurants who do have an outdoor patio to open their doors and provide service to the community; Virtual meetings of City advisory boards, commissions and committees are scheduled to begin this month.

Ordinance No. 2915 Audible Burglary Alarms
  Police Chief Catren detailed the need for Ordinance No. 2915 explaining the Police Department receives a high number of false burglary/property intrusion alarms. Police officers will be dispatched whenever the alarm company, or some other source, can verify the alarm was activated as the result of criminal activity or another emergency.

  Vote: 5 - 0 Passed
             
TTM No. 16878 Development Agreement
  Development Services Director Desatnik presented the proposed development agreement with Lone Chang, LLC, for Tentative Tract Map (TTM) No. 16878. The matter was considered by Council on July 21, 2020, where the project was discussed, a motion to deny the Development Agreement was moved and seconded, but in the absence of one Council member, the vote for denial was split two-two. With no agreement on a motion, staff was directed to bring the item back to the Council for consideration tonight. The project is located at the southwest corner of North Wabash Avenue and East San Bernardino Avenue. Mr. Desatnik offered background and explained the applicant filed an application for a development agreement, recognizing that all the traditional extensions had been used. The terms of the proposed development agreement include: vesting of the TTM so that it is protected against having any future changes in State or City laws be applicable to the project; extension of the life of the subdivision map for another 2 years; and donation of $10,000 to the City’s Cultural Arts Program for approval of the proposed development agreement. The Planning Commission reviewed the matter and returned with a split vote of 3-3. 

As public comment, Doug Jorritsma, Senior Vice President, Land Advisors, Inc. reminded the Council he had previously submitted a letter of support on July 21, 2020, recommending approval of the Development Agreement. He informed everyone that since that time, the developer has received three Letters of Intent from very qualified, well capitalized, publicly traded home builders, with additional offers expected to arrive prior to September 1, 2020. Benefits to the City would include, the realization of significant fee revenue and improved infrastructure in the neighborhood.

Council Member discussion focused on the ongoing, continual extensions granted to the development and reviewed the general time frames required to process tentative tract maps versus final maps. Council Members concurred with one another that if approved, the extension should be no more than two years, and they could not support the TTM vesting so that it was protected against having any future changes in State or City laws be applicable to the project. Other concerns included the legal aspects. City Attorney McHugh stated that he and the Applicant's attorney agreed there was no definitive law on this issue. He pointed out that the better reading of the statute is that this is not a permissible extension with a development agreement, but he added there was no black and white prohibition or express approval regarding the issue. 

Pat Meyer, representing the Applicant, described several setbacks and obstacles the developer has faced over the last several years. He indicated the applicant was willing to make a commitment to completing this within two years. Council Member Momberger reiterated her disapproval of the extension, stating it's been too long, the design was stale and this goes against the City's Municipal Code. Even though she understood the hardships for the Applicant, she remained opposed to the agreement, citing she based her decision on what was best for Redlands and this was not a good land use policy. Mayor Pro Tempore Davis agreed with Council Member Momberger's comments and supported the extension be denied. Mayor Foster clarified the agreement before the Council was not to approve or deny a development project but only to approve or deny the Development Agreement for the extension of the tentative tract map.
  On motion of Council Member Toni Momberger, seconded by Mayor Pro Tempore Denise Davis, the City Council denied, by roll call vote, the application requesting that the City negotiate and process a development agreement for Tentative Tract Map No. 16878.

He clarified that the proposed ordinance included a revision to Section 12.56.100, and there no intent to exclude ultralight aircraft from operations at the airport.

As public comment, Bruce Barmakian, City Hangar Occupant #3, Redlands Airport Association President Ted Gablin and Michael Tome all expressed concern with the language proposed in Section 12.56.100, which could exclude multiple ultralight aircraft who are currently operating out of Redlands Airport. Mr. Gablin pointed out Section 12.56.100 of the proposed ordinance does not reflect the AAB Adhoc committee’s suggestions. They requested Council revise the language of Section 12.56.100 so that operators of ultralight aircraft will not be excluded from flying into or out of Redlands Airport.
  On motion of Council Member Eddie Tejeda, seconded by Council Member Paul Barich, the City Council unanimously introduced, by roll call vote, Ordinance No. 2906 amending Chapter 12.56 of the Redlands Municipal Code relating to the Redlands Municipal Airport; and determined that approval of the ordinance is exempt from environmental review pursuant to Section 15061 (b)(3) of the State's guidelines implementing the California Environmental Quality Act.
