Other Business:
Consider alternatives for a change to provisions for the Affordable Housing Ordinance which requires 15% of units to be available at affordable rents or purchase cost (or an in-lieu fee). Changes will allow developers to acquire affordable units - low and very low income - including "short-sale" off-site after issuance of a building permit if a security deposit is in place.

Approve FY 2010/11 signal priority list and allocate funds for traffic improvement projects including intersection improvements at Blacow Road/Fremont Boulevard; Blacow Road/Omar Street-Robin Street; Blacow Road/Boone Drive; Fremont Boulevard/Enea Court. Signalized intersections are controlled by the City (161) and Caltrans (47). Staff was asked to study of new ranking system of signals and traffic calming. Light replacement alternatives were discussed as well as the issue of Scott Creek Road traffic. No new traffic signals are proposed.

Appropriate $840,000 from FY 2009/10 and FY 2010/11 and $365,000 from FY 2011/12.
