Pittsburg City Council Meeting

Monday,  September 4, 2018, 7pm

City Hall Council Chambers, 3rd Floor

Agenda can be found here.

Agenda items of note:

PUBLIC HEARING

#4. Introduction and Waive First Reading of an Ordinance Amending Title 18 of the Pittsburg Municipal Code Related to Permitting Small Recycling Facilities and Mail Order or Direct Selling Establishments in the M District

As we predicted last time: in another display of Your City Leaders Hate You (YCLHY), the Council is expected to approve this plan, despite the ridiculously close proximity to residences. Watch… you’ll see. Is there a documented and agreed to process for revoking the Use Permit for this project if the owner (Garaventa, of course) fails to meet the requirements of the project and negatively impacts the quality of life of nearby residents? The City Council proves once again that they think of Pittsburg as a dumping ground for the county. 

#5. Introduction and Waive First Reading of an Ordinance and Consideration of a Resolution Approving the Alves Ranch Project

Sadly, this development project – like virtually all the projects approved by the current City Leaders – contains NO provisions for traffic improvements in the surrounding areas, further adding to the terrible congestion in the west Leland area.

CONSIDERATION

#6. Adoption of a City Council Resolution Approving an Option Agreement between the City of Pittsburg and MWF Holdings, LLC for Four City Owned Properties Located at 385 E. 3rd Street, 389 E. 3rd Street, E. 3rd Street, and 495 E. 3rd Street

What, exactly is our City Manager up to? Why is he considering putting over 1000 more cars on the street at the end of Harbor Street in a HUGE Charter School? How, exactly, would school traffic be able to get there considering the “Traffic Nightmare on Harbor Street” that already occurs twice a day? Have the City Planners lost their mind? Or are they just following the misguided instructions of Joe Sbranti?

#7. Adoption of a City Council Resolution Approving the Use of Business Improvement District Funds by the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce for Police and Staff Services for the 2018 Seafood and Music Festival

It’s reassuring to know that the City of Pittsburg doesn’t have any budget problems…
