Approved the draft 7-year Capital Improvement Plan for 2015-2021, including roads, drainage, flood control, buildings, parks, and medians. Public hearing and first reading of an ordinance amending Title 5 Chapter 8 (Urban Runoff Pollution Prevention) of the San Anselmo Municipal Code. This ordinance is intended to increase protections against water pollution originating in San Anselmo, flowing through the Town’s storm drain system, and entering creeks and the San Francisco Bay. Voted 4 to 1 (with Councilmember Greene dissenting) to take a position opposing the Memorial Park Initiative. Council discussion centered around the concern that the initiative is premature because it would prevent the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) process from moving forward for a potential dual use facility at Memorial Park. The Council stated that the CEQA process would allow the Town to gather public input, identify environmental issues, examine appropriate alternatives and mitigation measures and to determine if the project is feasible. The Town Council also directed staff to return at the next Town Council meeting (June 23) with a draft Council measure for the November ballot, which would require a future public vote on a dual use facility plan after the CEQA process is complete, project feasibility determined and a preliminary project design completed.
