Work Session
Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report for South Hayward BART/Mission Blvd Form-based Code.

Approved plans and specifications; call for bids for new sidewalk on both sides of Bellina St. between Second and Third Streets. Total cost estimated at $350,000 which has been budgeted in the FY 2011 Capital Improvement Plan with Measure B (half-cent transportation sales tax administered by the Alameda County Transportation Commission) funding for pedestrian and bicycle projects. Completion of works scheduled for August 26, 2011.

Public Hearing
Master Fee Schedule update to be continued May 3, 2011.

Legislative Business
Adoption of interim Moratorium Ordinance re supermarkets of 20,000 sq. ft., or more, or large retail stores exceeding 75,000 sq. ft. with at least 10,000 sq. ft. or 10 percent of area, whichever is less, devoted to sale of grocery or non-taxable items to be continued May 3, 2011. The ordinance would establish a 45-day moratorium on approval of land use entitlements and building permits for such establishments.

Opposed AB 438 (Williams) County free libraries.

Public Comment
Betty DeForest expressed concern that not only was the South Hayward Parish (a coalition of faith-based organizations) unaware of the city's planned Gang Injunction Program, the local ACLU, NAACP, Bishop Macklin and COR also missed the outreach for opportunities to comment. The board of South Hayward Parish has requested further discussion and collaboration.

Benjamin Goulart queried how the planned power plant was approved given that he was last informed the proposal to build such a facility was rejected by Council. Staff will make clear the chronology of events, decisions, the make-up of Council and input from third-party agencies.

Anthony Varni represented the owner of 300-400 apartment units in the vicinity of the South Hayward BART Station. He requested the proposed form-based code be sensitive to the set-back requirements along Mission Blvd. to compensate for traffic and that planners consider the type of projects and buildings that might be identified by the form-based code to avoid detriment to the local community and property values.

Jim Drake is concerned about safety specifications associated with the mini-loop which is part of the Route 238 Corridor Improvement Project.
