If the City Council concurs with the Planning Commission, Staff recommends the City Council continue the item and direct staff to prepare approval resolutions to be presented at the December 10, 2019 Council meeting. Staff s Recommendation: Staff recommends the City Council deny Vesting Tentative Tract Map 15-02 (VTTM 72368), General Plan Amendment 15-02, Zone Change 15-02, DPRB Case No. 15-33, Precise Plan Case No. 15-01, and Tree Removal Permit 15-38. If the City Council concurs with Staff, Staff recommends the City Council continue the item and direct staff to prepare denial resolution(s) to be presented at the December 10, 2019 Council meeting. Senior Planner Marco Espinosa presented staff s report on this item and highlighted the following staff concerns: 1. House design and architectural feature 2. Loss of potential vehicle access to Horsethief Canyon Park 3. Debris basin ownership and maintenance Responding to Councilmember Ebiner, City Attorney Malawy stated that the construction of a basin in Horsethief Canyon Park was not on the table for tonight's meeting, because it is not part of the application filed by the applicant. If the Council were interested in having that discussion, the majority of Council would have to agree and direct staff to bring the item back in a closed session for real property negotiations. Mayor Pro Tem Vienna expressed interest in that action. Mr. Malawy confirmed that an amendment to the application and a new CEQA process to evaluate the Environmental Impact would be required. Responding to Councilmember Ebiner, Mr. Espinoza clarified that there would be a 4 Y2 foot parkway and 5 foot sidewalk. Responding to Councilmember Badar, City Attorney Malawy replied that the applicant filed an application to build a housing development project and what they filed is within the boundaries of what was presented on the map tonight; and it does not include the debris basin. If he wanted to have a debris basin in the park area he would have to amend his application and bring it back to the Council. If the applicant requests the Council to consider putting the debris basin in the City Council Minutes November 12, 2019 Page 5 park, and a majority of the Council wanted to consider it, they could direct staff to schedule a closed session for real property negotiations. Mr. Malawy explained that if the project were approved tonight, a condition of approval could be that the city and the applicant must agree to do the land exchange; and if it happens in the future then the project can go forward. If the city decides not to do the land exchange in the future the project cannot go forward. Responding to Councilmember Badar, Mr. Espinoza replied the proposed design by the applicant does not meet the County standard for basins. He added that staff feels it should be a County basin for a different reason, the County would maintain it and the City would not have to deal with the maintenance. Responding to Mayor Pro Tem Vienna, Mr. Malawy replied if the application is denied tonight, the applicant could file a different application at any time if he choose to. City Engineer Dave Gilbertson clarified the County's standard for basins. Responding to Councilmember Ebiner, Mr. Espinoza replied staff did consider the relationship to another development and spoke with the applicant about this, but they wished to submit at 7,500 sq. ft. design. Mr. Gilbertson clarified for Council the visibility aspects, size and landscaping design surrounding the basin. Mayor Morris opened the public hearing for the applicant to make their presentation. Steve Hunter with Land Design Consultants for the applicant, made his presentation highlighting they had always recommended that a debris basin be built in the park and outlined their case for their proposed design of the basin. He stated that staff was misinterpreting the report done by the geologist. He also stated they could work with staff to come up with a debris basin solution in the park, even though it is not part of their application tonight. He further stated they would build a temporary basin maintained on their site until the City resolves the flood hazard within the park and builds a debris basin in the park. He added that building a basin in this location does not solve the overall regional problem. He suggested a continuance and they would modify the tentative tract map to put a County maintained debris basin within their subdivision, if directed by Council. He stated the reason they want to do the property exchange is to grade on the hillside to solve the cross lot drainage problem between public water and private water. In addition, on the finger piece they will raise the grade to the level of the soccer fields, irrigate and landscape. He concluded that the improvement will increase the usable area on the park by 4500 sq. ft. for total usable area closer to 8,000 sq. ft. 1) Patrick Jones resident, asked if nothing is built who will deal with the flooding that has been discussed. 2) Maverick resident supports the development, but is concerned with flooding issue on her property if nothing is done. City Council Minutes November 12, 2019 Page 6 1) Isabel resident, suggested more discussion is needed on the retention basin. Her concerns are potential for loss of park land, loss of vehicular access to the park and zoning change Mr. Hunter stated that they design debris basins 3 0% over what the county requires, and added that surrounding lots are larger than their lots, and what they are proposing seems to be a good transition to the surrounding properties. He concluded with, he hoped that Council would consider a continuance to allow them to work with staff to decide where the basin should be. Mayor Morris closed the public hearing and brought the item back to the Council for discussion and decision. Councilmember Badar thanked staff and the Planning Commission for their work on this project and added that he would be interested in a continuation for a closed session discussion. Councilmember Bertone stated he would be willing to have a continuance and liked the idea where the applicant would build the basin to County standards on their own property. Mayor Pro Tem Vienna is supportive of a continuation and closed session discussion on real property negotiations; but feels that the basin should not be built in park land. Mayor Morris is supportive of a continuation, but thinks that a public hearing is necessary if considering selling public park land. Councilmember Ebiner stated he liked the parkway trees and urged the developer to keep the trees. He also stated it is a good idea for a trail or path connection. He mentioned that staff has recommended a County approved basin numerous times and it should not be a surprise to anyone now. He added that he is in favor of a continuation, but would like to see the chart show house plans and square footage for each lot. Additionally he is not in favor of using park land for a debris basin that will benefit a private developer. MOTION: Motion/seconded by Councilmembers Badar/Bertone to continue the item at the request of the applicant. Mr. Malawy clarified that the Council should provide some direction to the applicant so that he knows how to amend his application, and to inform staff if the Council would like to schedule a closed session to discuss park land with the applicant. Mayor Morris reiterated that a public hearing is needed for input before the discussions of the sale of public land. The Council continued discussing when the public hearing should be had. City Manager Ken Duran clarified that because this would affect the whole community a larger notification outreach would be needed. City Council Minutes November 12, 2019 Page 7 Mr. Malawy clarified the motion to be: Continue this item, the applicant can amend their application if they wish and bring it back to Council at any time. Have staff bring back an item to Council as a public hearing, allowing the public to comment on whether or not this area of park land should be used for this project, and receive input for the Council to consider. MOTION: Motion/seconded by Councilmembers Badar/Berton to continue this item. The applicant can amend their application if they wish and bring it back to Council at any time.

The amendment creates Exhibit C depicting the affected properties and revises Exhibits A and B (diagrams) to convey the information more legibly. Planning Manager Fabiola Wong presented staff report on this item. Responding to Councilmember Bertone, Mrs. Wong responded that this amendment could affect all three corners, but there is only one property interested in doing upgrades and this will help facilitate that. Responding to Councilmember Ebiner, Mrs. Wong responded that any new revisions or new construction requires a precise plan amendment; and that would be the time to look at how to address the design of the intersection. City Council Minutes November 12, 2019 Page 8 Responding to Councilmember Badar, Mrs. Wong responded that staff would be reviewing if there are any opportunities to eliminate some of the driveways for safety reasons, they will identify them during the precise plan amendment process.

Councilmember Ebiner suggested one grammatical change and some wording changes. The City Clerk will verify the suggested grammatical change of the plurality of Dimas, while the Council consensus was to leave the other wording unchanged. Mayor Pro Tem Vienna stated he has a hard time with the proposed measure because there was no independent analysis regarding the projected fiscal health of the City. He added that he does not see the necessity for it, but does believe that it is fiscally prudent to proceed. He further added he is still unsure of specifically where any projected deficits may be, although he has asked for the information on several occasions. He stated that he supports letting the voters decide, because it is fiscally prudent for the City to seek this to be able to provide services to the community. He concluded with the source of where the money is to be spent should be presented to the community in a simplistic manner. Mayor Morris stated that it is necessary for the city to project ahead because of a trend in decreasing revenue. He agreed that it may not be necessary now, but prudent if we want to continue to provide services to the community, and be able to address aging roads and infrastructure in the future. He also agreed that the City needs to explain to the community where the money is going. He is supportive of the taking the measure to the voters. City Manager Ken Duran stressed that one of the biggest areas staff looked at is the general fund, where three of those funds (parks, infrastructure and Fund 70 equipment) have been depleted. He stated that without an infusion of new revenue the City would not be able to do any capital improvement projects in upcoming years. He added, the staff is working on providing the Council with the educational material that will help them let the community know what the needs are. Councilmember Badar stated that the community has charged this Council to be fiscally prudent. He discussed how the reserves have gradually gone down over time and it is time to look to the future. He is supportive of the taking the measure to the voters. Councilmember Ebiner agreed with the statements of being prudent. He added that if there are no additional sources of money we can't continue to provide the type of services we want to the community. He is supportive of the taking the measure to the voters.
