GOVERNMENTAL REPORTS.

Community Police Officer- Suzy de la Pena: There has been a rash of iPods and iPads being stolen on the trolley. Shields asked if DUI tickets being issued was a good thing. De la Pena said they are useful for driver safety issues and also help reduce speeding. Caffey asked about the shooting near Millers Market where 2 were killed. De la Pena said the shooter is still at large. Captains meeting is 1/25/11 at 5:30 at 25th & Imperial.

City Council District 3 - Anthony Bernal: Distributed January issue of District 3 Dialogue and highlighted: reporting potholes, please let office know if they are not addressed within 3 days. Pedestrian ramps are being installed at A Street and Fern. Caffey called the council office because she noted that scoring was not matching the existing concrete. The situation will be corrected. Vasconcellos said the same thing happened on her block. Bernal asked to be notified if this happens again. State of the District address will be Tuesday, 1/25/11 at 6:30 pm at the Birch North Park Theater. Community Coffee with Councilman Gloria will be Saturday, 2/12/11 from 10-11:30 AM at Alchemy. Jerry Ray suggested that when your pothole gets fixed, call and thank the city crew.

City Council District 8 – Melina Meza: Arrived later after attending the Hwy 94 Scoping Meeting. Councilman Alvarez has sent a letter to the project manager stating his concerns about the project including EIR, eminent domain issues, and sound walls being moved

Mayor’s Office – no representative present.

53rd Congressional District – Kathryn Fortner. Distributed January issue of Davis Dispatch. It recaps legislation from old Congress and hopes for the new one. Noted that despite several conversations with officials, the Post Office at 27th & C Street will be closing 2/18/11. Davis is saddened by events in Tuscon. Had a telephone town hall about senior health care. Kroll suggested that calls inviting us to these town halls state the topic to be discussed.

PUBLIC COMMENT.

Matt Thomas, South Park Community Group. A meeting relating to the Community Plan Update will be held on Saturday, 1/15/11 from 9:30 – 11:30 at the Polish American Hall. The SPCG will present the work they have done on Update, followed by a workshop asking community input.

Tershia D’Elgin, Friends of 32nd Street Canyon. A tree-planting event will be held on Saturday, 1/15/11 at 8 AM in 32nd Street Canyon, everyone is welcome to come and help.

Christian Chaffee, San Diego Historical Street Cars. One of the historical street cards will be on display at the Calendar Antique Show at Del Mar Fair Grounds 1/22-24/11. His group wants to bring these back to our neighborhood.

Maureen Burke. Is advocating a cap over Hwy 94 between 22nd & 25th Street for use as a public park. She has attended the 25th Street project meeting and the Hwy 94 Scoping meeting. She learned that the way to assure this happening is to make it part of the Freeway Agreement, and suggests letting our City Council representatives know how we feel about this. She feels it would be helpful to have GGHPC write a letter of support.

Shields said she would like a joint letter with planning group from Southeast San Diego. Bernal said he would get Shields the contact information for the group that worked on the cap over Hwy 15. Caffey said Kathryn Willets had some mockups of this idea which has been proposed before. David Swarrens said that the cap is part of the Sherman Heights Revitalization Plan.

Pat Shields. Asked community members in attendance to be sure to put their email address on the sign-in sheet, so they will be “in the loop” on Committee activity and events.

Carole Caffey. Pedro Anaya is working with the YET Center on some expansion plans. Contact Caffey for further details.

CONSENT AGENDA. NONE. Land-Use Subcommittee did not meet in December

INFORMATION ITEMS.

25th Street Renaissance Project. No representative was present.

Project # 227526 “You Are Here” Mixed Use Project at 811 25th Street. Mike Burnett and Greg Avenilla of Foundation for Form architects introduced themselves. They designed the MDX830 project and have offices there. They showed a PowerPoint show about their proposed project.

"You Are Here “ project is for the parcel where an auto repair shop currently exists, at 811 25th Street (NE corner of 25th Street and Hwy. 94). Burnett described this as a Gateway Location, noting the Hwy 94 off-ramp, with an gas station and the MDX80 project on NW side. The location was originally a gas station but the tanks have been removed and required remediation already completed.

The goals of this project are to (1) remove some of the curb cuts and have parking off the alley (2) keep the existing building and work around it with a pedestrian plaza under the canopies (3) surround the existing building with U-shaped series of buildings, creating a “Main Street” feeling with courtyard areas (4) make the existing dead end of F Street into a pocket park.

Comments:

Santini questioned the appropriateness of the design. D Skillman noted that the design shown is awfully angular and might not fit with the existing church to the North. Kroll asked if they owned the property – Burnett said it is in escrow. Ben Nichols asked what kind of tenants they anticipate – Burnett expects newer active businesses, they want to provide a neighborhood-serving affordable business location.

Lisa Vela thinks the idea is great, likes the affordable aspect and Hwy 94 access. She stated that MDX830 is a welcoming space and a creative environment with a fresh look. Shields asked if a height variance would be needed – Burnett said they are waiting for initial City Planning Department comments. Caffey does not like the modern design and does not think that it fits the neighborhood, but loves the concept.

M Skillman asked how much housing would be included. Burnett said there will be 5,000 sq ft of commercial space with 22 residential units. 2 units will be affordable housing. Using the density bonus they could have up to 27 units but only 22 are planned.

Strickland likes the concept, likes preserving the existing building. He wants to see a Gateway not a building fa├žade when coming up 25th Street. He said the design reminds him of East Village; probably not right for our neighborhood without some softening. Shields noted that the context of the 1960’s is not good for those who remember how the community was affected in those years with the freeway construction.

Swarrens thinks the relationship with neighbors (wall vs. gateway) needs to be addressed. Vela said the neighborhood has many commercial buildings in the 50-60’s style and we don’t need to get stuck with using residential styles everywhere. D Skillman suggested putting the Golden Hill round logo into the circular opening in the existing building. Burke does not want to compromise on the design.

Cheryl Bryerton does not think the conceptual design ties in with the community. An audience member wondered if the “Gateway” is being addressed by the 25th Street Renaissance project - Burnett said changes to the entrance to the property would be provided. Lauren asked about a timeline - Burnett said escrow closes in a month: with neighborhood permits they could begin construction in the fall of 2011.

Nichols likes the Counterpoint (MDX830) building and its enthusiasm. He thinks a modern design can work in this location. An audience member said MDX830 feels integrated and thinks this project shares that quality. Alvarez thinks the project is thoughtful and effective use. She said the architecture is new; maybe everything can’t stay old. Burnett noted that all decades are represented in the architecture on 25th Street, and his tenants want a new, fresh space.

Shields asked what the next step is. Glazebrook said the project must go through the Land Use Subcommittee. Shields wondered if could hold all discussions on the project in the Committee of the Whole. Burnett said he would prefer to go before the Land Use Subcommittee at its meeting on 1/26/11. He hopes to have initial input back from City Planning by then.

Burnett will come to the February GGHPC meeting with an update. Caffey thanked Burnett and Avenilla for soliciting Committee input.

Annual Elections. Glazebrook has moved out of Greater Golden Hill and is no longer eligible to be a GGHPC member. He said he will still be available for advise.

Vasconcellous said there are currently 3 vacancies on the Committee. She will send out an updated roster, indicating which members are up for re-election in March. Those intending to run again must notify her at the February meeting, as should community members seeking election.

Shields said she wanted to do the Subcommittee assignments at the March meeting, immediately after elections are held. It was suggested that the Transportation Subcommittee be tasked with handling issues on the Hwy 94 upgrade.

ACTION ITEMS. none

SUBCOMMITTEE REPORTS.

Community Plan Update Advisory Committee. City Planner Bernie Turgeon. CPUAC had a meeting on 1/5/11 regarding economic context. There were some questions about the data used, and some parts of the presentation are being revised, using GGH data only, not all of 92102. He will notify us when they are put online.

The next meeting will be Wednesday, 2/2/11, 6:30 pm at Golf Course Clubhouse. Monthly meetings are anticipated through June.

A matrix of comments from the first 5 CPUAC meetings has been created, with a section for prioritizing them. CPUAC members are asked to complete this before the 2/2/11 meeting. A second matrix of charette comments will be forthcoming, as well as the current Community Plan in an easy to used word document for CPUAC use in the revision process.

Pedro Anaya is no longer with Greater Golden Hill CDC so his place on CPUAC is vacant. That vacancy and any others identified will be addressed at the March meeting. Turgeon has contacted CPUAC members who have not been attending meetings regularly to find out if they still want to be on the committee. At the 1/5/11 meeting, a quorum was not present.

The Draft version of the Updated Community Plan is due by June 30, which is when funding currently in place ends. At the 1/5/11 meeting, Bill Anderson, head of Development Services, said he was hopeful that funding would be available to complete the Updates already in process; no new Updates are being started due to the City’s financial issues.

M Skillman noted that, under the Brown Act, a quorum of CPUAC members should not be in attendance at the SPGC meeting that Matt Thomas announced. Those planning to attend said they would be aware of that rule.

Clean Green and Safe MAD –Carole Caffey. Anaya’s position at GGHCDC is not being replaced. Ben Verdugo is the new Program Manager for the MAD, he started 1/1/11. Statistical reports about the MAD are posted on the GGHCDC website. Outstanding items are planters @ $25,000. Harvest Landscaping is doing well with the maintenance.

Airport Noise. Advisory committee meets 1/19/11, 4-5:40 pm at Commuter Terminal.

Parks. A new community garden has opened in Mt. Hope neighborhood. City Council approved use of city property for community gardens in redevelopment areas.

The next meeting will be WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2011

Meeting adjourned by Shields at 8:35 pm

GREATER GOLDEN HILL PLANNING COMMITTEE MINUTES

December 8, 2010

Meeting Agenda is found in Attachment 1 at the end of these minutes.

Meeting was held at Balboa Park Golf Course Clubhouse – Golf Course Drive. Called to order at 6:33 pm by Chair Pat Shields. Agenda had been posted in accordance with Brown Act. A quorum of members was present.

Members present: Ruchell Alvarez, Maureen Burke, Carole Caffey, Scott Glazebrook, John Kroll, Anita Margolis, Barbara McGill, Jessica Richter, Richard Santini, Pat Shields, David Skillman, Marie Skillman, David Strickland, Angela Vasconcellos Members absent: Richard Baldwin

Addition/deletions to Agenda none

Chair’s Report. Shields explained the purpose of the meeting was to bring out more information about the 25th Street Renaissance Project – and what we could consider within the time constraints the project has with funding deadlines. She said that Brian Hannegan of RRM Design Group, the consultants hired for public input portion of the project, would be presenting the footprint of the project for approval. He would also present the most maintenance cost estimates, in reference to questions about the project being revenue neutral.

Shields said she expected the committee to vote on the general project footprint, in sufficient detail for planning to go forward, including some estimate of maintenance costs.

Strickland asked if there would be discussion during the presentation. Shields asked that questions be held until the presentation was completed. McGill said that in regards to the maintenance cost estimates, she wanted to know the funding source.

Approval of Minutes, Treasurer’s Report: not given due to time constraints.

PUBLIC COMMENT.

Matt Thomas, South Park Community Group. Thomas had attended the City Land Use and Housing Committee meeting earlier in the day, presenting them with petitions requesting more comprehensive community input in the Community Plan Update process, including additional charettes. SPCG is planning a community meeting on January 15, 2011 from 9:30-12:30, probably at Christ United Presbyterian Church.

GOVERNMENTAL REPORTS.

CONSENT AGENDA - none

INFORMATION ITEMS - none

ACTION ITEMS.

25th Street Renaissance Project. Brian Hannegan of RRM Design Group had posted a more detailed map of the project than the one presented at earlier meetings. He reviewed the project timeline to date: Project was introduced on 9/8/10. The concept for the plan dates back to 2005. Community input (two workshops) has identified preferences for wide sidewalks, “complete streets”, reverse angle parking, no planted medians, bringing Balboa Park to 25th Street, and “green streets” concepts. Concerns identified are right-of-way issues, irrigation and routine maintenance, how to handle multiple driveways, and project phasing.

Referring to the map, work in Segment 1 (Balboa Park to B Street) will include extending the medians and making wider parkways, cul-de-sac entrance to Balboa Park at Russ, wider sidewalks, bike lanes and parallel parking on both sides of the street.

Segment 2 (B Street to Broadway) will include diagonal back-in parking on the east side of the street and parallel parking on the west side, sidewalks as wide as possible (17.5 ft maximum), street trees in larger planters, softening of streetscape, hopefully saving existing trees. Patterns for sidewalk scoring have not been decided.

Segment 3 (Broadway to F Street) will include landscaped parkways and widened sidewalks. D. Skillman asked if diagonal parking could be added later – Hannegan said no change to current curb and gutter arrangement is planned now. In this segment, bulbs out intersections create a challenge with drainage. Percolation tests are underway. In some areas, there is concrete beneath the asphalt.

Hannegan stressed that what he has presented is a concept. There is still another level of design before construction documents are drawn up. This is only 30% completed. More details will be added during the next phase. Additional workshops and community advisory group meetings will be held. Between now and this next round of meetings, lots of questions will be answered.

Hannegan then presented the conceptual cost estimate, totaling $3,200,000. Segment 1, $900,000; Segment 2, $1,300,000; Segment 3, $1,000,000. The total when doing three segments separately is more than if everything could be done at once. Hannegan noted that these costs are lower than originally projected due to the current low construction costs and the fact that not much of the infrastructure is underground.

Maintenance costs for this conceptual project are hard to pin down. Much of what is being proposed could be concrete. Narrower sidewalks would require less power washing, but more landscaping requires more irrigation. In the northern part of the project, many changes are proposed to streetscape, but the southern portion remains much the same as it is now. All this being said, the estimated annual maintenance cost for the entire project is $15,000 - $25,000. The current Maintenance Assessment District allocates $12,000 - $15,000 to this area.

Hannegan addressed questions about the Phasing. Currently Segment 2 is proposed to be done first. Whether Segment 1 or 3 would be done next is not decided. It might be possible to combine work in all segments, such as having all of the road striping done at once.

Following the current project schedule, the construction documents will be completed during the first half of 2011. Construction would begin in fall 2011 and be completed by summer 2012.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Lisa Vela (resident) – what are the components of the phasing? They hope the sidewalks, bulb outs, planting in Phase I can move along block to block from the core area implementation.

D. Skillman - is the entire $3,200,000 in the current grant? $2,300,000 is now available

Strickland – who would handle contingencies? City would be doing consultant management.

Burke – are the phase costs the same if all is done at once, or not? These costs are if all was being done at once. They need to find out what can be accomplished if not all the funding becomes available.

Burke – where is the money coming from? $2,388,000 is available: Federal Pilot Smart funds, ($1,400,000), San Diego Trans Net funds ($288,000) and Federal Transportation Enhancement funds ($700,000)

Margolis – the project funding is $900,000 short, more when Phasing is taken into account. Are there priorities or additional funding sources? They are looking for additional sources, and the priority is to do the core area (Segment 2), and move forward as far as possible.

Vela - how much is actually approved? The $700,000 in Federal Transportation Enhancement funds is only allocated, not promised. Final decision on this will come in Spring 2011.

Strickland – could we lose any of this money if the construction documents are not done by summer? Yes. The amount of work completed on the project in just 90 days has been incredible. The community is really focused.

Kathy Vandenheuvel, (President of Greater Golden Hill CDC) – said she is really excited for the project to move forward. What is the timeline for approval process? The design stage work needs to be done and fees worked out. They are hoping to do more than Broadway to B. Design work should be completed in January, a preliminary Design Workshop will be held in February, and then the construction documents will be drawn up in March – June. 3 additional cost documents are required.

MOTION

D. Skillman asked what we are being asked to vote on. Footprint and concepts, dotted lines? Shields said she thought we were voting on the shape of the project. After some discussion about having our motion refer to the slides we had just seen, Shields made a motion, seconded by Strickland:

“The motion is to approve the 25th Street Renaissance Project based upon the descriptions and concepts presented in the slide show. The slide show will be included in Greater Golden Hill Planning Committee Documents. “

Discussion:

Kroll – changing 25th Street from 2 lanes each way to 1 lane each way is not included in the key points. If traffic flow is reduced, what will the impact on adjoining streets? Hannegan said that traffic studies showed no major impacts to adjoining streets.

McGill - had questions about maintenance. She wanted to know the source of the figures for current MAD of $12,000-$15,000. Kathy Vandenheuvel said that GGHCDC had looked at the current MAD budget with the Zone 1 (commercial) ratio of linear square feet. She noted that some of the maintenance items are not covered by the MAD, including lighting. McGill said she could not decide without further details. Vandenheuvel said they would look at various sources for maintenance funding, not just the MAD. She noted that water drainage is another unanswered question that is not part of MAD.

Shields – noted that available funding for maintenance should drive project design. Hannegan said that grass in parkways would be replaced with water efficient plants, and the new lighting would also be energy efficient. Pedro Anaya (Executive Director of Greater Golden Hill CDC) said that the CDC has encouraged project to have low maintenance costs.

Vela – voiced her concern about voting on a plan without removing details. What about plants shown that cannot ever be funded?

Margolis – are additional needed funds to come from the GGHCDC or the MAD? Hannegan said that $12,000 - $15,000 in MAD funding is allocated to the project area. He clarified that no extra money from MAD is available.

Burke – is $15,000 - $25,000 needed for all 3 segments? Yes, need increases as segments are completed.

Shields said she would like to amend her motion to be sure the documentation includes the cross sections. Glazebrook cautioned against parsing this too much. Santini said he thought the palm trees should be taken off. He urged us to vote on this to assure keeping the funding.

Shields called the question. The motion as originally stated was approved, 12 in favor, 1 (McGill) opposed, 1 (Alvarez) abstained.

The committee was then asked to express opinions on IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROJECT.

Glazebrook – we would get more bang for the bucks if Segment 2 were done first, then #3.

D. Skillman – does our vote allow the project to move forward? Do we need to vote again later on more ideas? Hannegan said they would like us to give direction now rather than question everything later.

Vandenheuvel said there would be further community workshops. She again noted that maintenance funding is still very questionable. Must we vote on phasing?

Glazebrook - what is Hannegan’s contract? If we decide the segmenting now, will it help to get the contract rolling? Yes.

Shields - GGHPC could state an opinion now and wait on re-commenting.

Vela - how will our concept ideas matter?

Hannegan - needs to have our sense of the construction process: that will guide what documents need to be presented. He said that the next phase of the project would include more detail overall and cost and maintenance estimates. They should have a contract with the city to do so many feet. It would help his firm focus to get our opinion.

Margolis – what is the Core? Could the project proceed in both directions from the Core rather than just South or North? The idea is to extend as far as possible, including intersections and ends of streets.

Member of the public – what is Hannegan’s opinion of the way to go? Hannegan thinks the north end of the street looks pretty good already; south does not look so good. Improving the south could make the entrance to the community grander. The southern end of the project is also less expensive.

Shields – concept as Hannegan described it is good.

Vela – likes the gateway option.

Shields made a motion, seconded by Strickland:

“At this time, the Greater Golden Hill Planning Committee supports in concept having the project work on the Core (Segment 2) first, then the southern (Segment 3) as recommended by the consultant”

Discussion.

Santini – what about getting additional funding? It is easier to get more funding if part of work is already done.

Vasconcellos – suggested Hannegan consult CalTrans to try to work with them on the I-94 widening project at the southern end. Strickland mentioned cut & cover on the overpass.

Shields called the question. The motion was approved, 13 in favor, 1 (McGill) opposed.

Margolis suggested another motion requesting that the project be moved from center in both directions. Idea died for lack of a second.

Strickland asked Hannegan if we would get monthly status reports. We probably will after the next round of community meetings. Strickland stressed his desire for regular reporting, especially since we are all open to giving additional input.

OTHER BUSINESS.

Margolis offered her resignation from the GGHPC at this time. She was thanked by all for her service.

Shields thanked Santini for purchasing a screen, so that GGHPC has one available for presenters. $84 was collected to reimburse Santini. Storage of the screen will be discussed at another meeting.

ADJOURNMENT:

Meeting adjourned by Shields at 8:00 pm.
