Recommendation to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) that eligible and interested tenants of properties within the Bunkerhill neighborhood have the right to buy the homes they have been renting subject to establishment of an assessment district to pay for roadway and utility improvements and a new roadway off Carlos Bee Blvd. into the neighborhood as part of the settlement agreement for the Route 238 Land Disposition Process.

Public Comment
Jim Drake continues to remark on safety of the Route 238 Corridor Improvement Project and looks forward to absence of potholes on Mission Blvd. He spoke on behalf of an acquaintance who would like Century Theaters, B St., to offer a senior discount more than once a week. There is leakage to Century 25, Union City, where such discounts are more frequently available.

Doug Ligibel remarked on the use of fireworks across the city before and after July 4; it compromises child safety. He and his neighborhood watch group placed approximately 100 calls to Hayward PD; most were dropped; the desired response to those that were received was unavailable. The sound of fireworks is often used to drown out gunfire which places residents and police officers in grave danger. Many residents are unhappy with July 4 "celebrations." Seven sworn police officers will be lost; can the city's 2012 budget be amended to retain them? According to Ligibel, the Measure A Utility Users' Tax was supposed to protect sworn officers' positions. Mayor Sweeney awaits a report about July 4 activities from the City Manager.

Charlie Peters, Clean Air Performance Professionals, thanked Council for its support over the issues of corn ethanol in gasoline and PZEVs.

Mayor Michael Sweeney - Yes
Barbara Halliday - Yes
Olden Henson - Yes
Marvin Peixoto - Yes
Bill Quirk - Yes
Mark Salinas - Yes
Francisco Zermeľo - Yes
