Monday Night: Downtown Historic Buildings , Victoria Avenue, and Midtown Street Paving

On Monday night, we will consider a number of important issues and projects. These include the following:

• We’re scheduled to pass the Capital Improvement Program for 2007-2012. This program includes the long-awaited repaving of the “Island Streets” in Midtown, which is currently in design. Since I live on an Island Street (Anacapa), I will be conflicted from voting on that portion of the CIP.

• We will be considering tract map approvals for two downtown projects involving historic buildings – the Palm & Poli project, which we sent back last fall for the historic analysis to be redone, and the Elks Club property at Main and Ash, which will include renovation of the old Elks building and construction of condos adjacent.

• We will consider the Victoria Avenue urgency ordinances, which calls for a use permit for all retail projects of 50,000 square feet or more. This requires a 6-1 vote.

We’ll be dark on Monday, April 2, but in the coming weeks we will consider a number of other important items.

On April 9, we are scheduled to hear an update on the Surfers Point project and the Downtown retail plan.

On April 23, we’ll get our first look at the staff’s proposed 2007-08 budget.

On April 30, we’ll have another joint workshop with the Planning Commission on the Saticoy & Wells community Plan.
