Town Of Moraga

Recent Town Council Actions on July 12, 2017

CONTRA COSTA TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY APPOINTMENT
Town Council interviewed and appointed Larry Rosenberg to represent the Town of Moraga on the Contra Costa Transportation Authority’s (CCTA) Citizens’ Advisory Committee. The CCTA maintains a standing Citizens’ Advisory Committee to provide citizen perspective, participation and involvement in the CCTA’s $3 billion voter-approved Transportation Expenditure Plan and Growth Management Program. Each of the cities and towns within Contra Costa County appoints one member.

MASTER FEE SCHEDULE UPDATED
Town Council adopted a new Master Fee Schedule for FY 2017/18. The new fees will be effective September 10, 2017, 60 days after adoption. The Master Fee Schedule is typically reviewed as part of the annual budget development process with proposed changes based on the estimated cost of providing specific Town services. The Town Council requested staff further study rental fees at the Hacienda de las Flores and return with more information and recommendations at a future date. It is anticipated that the adopted fees will continue to generate approximately $1.1 million annually to offset General Purpose Fund expenses.

BANNER SIGNS POLICY
Town Council reviewed a draft policy for approval of temporary banner signs on Town-owned property, with such signs generally allowed for the purpose of announcing community and Town-sponsored events. The proposed policy also sets guidance on the size, duration and location of placement, and allows for staff level approval of signs that meet the policy requirements. After discussion of the policy and changes proposed by one Councilmember, staff was directed to work with the Town Attorney on a revised draft for consideration at a future meeting.

ZONING AMENDMENTS FOR COMMERCIAL DISTRICT PERMIT STREAMLINING
Town Council gave direction to staff to proceed with developing a new “Planned Development-Commercial” (PD-C) Zoning District, as a new tool to help streamline approvals of commercial uses in the Town’s existing shopping centers. Once the PD-C District is incorporated into the Municipal Code, an owner of an eligible property may apply for re-zoning and Town Council approval of a “PD-C Plan” that includes a tailored, site-specific program of allowable land uses and development standards, including uses that are allowed with minimal discretionary review. Council also appointed Councilmembers Korpus and Trotter to an ad hoc subcommittee to work with staff on the PD-C ordinance. Members of the business community spoke in support of the effort, emphasizing the importance of reducing the barriers to attracting and retaining businesses to improve Moraga’s economic vitality.
