At a previous City Council meeting, Councilman Scott Nelson said the expiration of commuter ! I boo~s was n~lCUlOUS and daat the city should bring the matter up with the California Public Utility Commission, Park development projects planned In other business, on Tuesday, Nov. 3, the council authorized staff to apply for California Park Program Grant Funds for a new community center at 410 Avalon Canyon Rd. The Avalon Canyon Road project was one oftw0 pro- posed park developmen& that the council discussed. According to McDonald's report, staff is proposing~the con- structi0n of a new community cen. ter, a childcare center and addition- al park space at the CKV site or the adjacent area. "No financial outlay will be required for the~ applica- tion," McDonald wrote. Between $100,000 and $5 million in grant money is available. However, the grants are competitive. There is no guarantee the grant applications would be approved. "The grant allows for 25 percent of the gram to-be used for pre-construction costs. There is no match require- ment," McDonald wrote. That same night, the coun- cil authorized staff to apply for grant money for a new sports ]-tNC;5 .q(}l I )! complex at Quail/Citru Canyon. Unfortunately, the project does not qualify for the money accord- ing to information provided by the database that applicants are required to use. This database is called the Community Fact Finder. "The information that is compiled for eligibility requirements is a combination of census tract data and unrestricted open space," McDonald wrote. "Staff believes that there are two possible options to correct the information." The first option would be to challense the medium income cal- Jculation for the area. To qualify for the grant for the sports com- plex, the state requires a median income level of less than $47,331 a year. The California State Parks Community Fact Finder Report the 0uail/( itms Canyon proj- ect put the median income level for people living in that area at $50,841. "The second way to challenge the data would be to have certain parcels of land currently counted as open space removed, there- date Aladdin Cleaning's contract with Avalon expires. In the end, the council decided that the new contract would expire in 2013. Wanted: Coastal Program consultant Avalon will be requesting proposals from consulting firms to assist with updating the city" s Local Coastal lZ*rogl-am_ According to the Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning, "After an LCP has been certified by the Coastal Commission, coastal per- mitting authority over most new development is transferred to the local government." According to a staff report fore lowering the park' acreage," by Avalon Planning Director McDonald wrote. Amanda Cook, "The city has She said city staff was work- long been aware that our Local ing with state officials t~ address Coastal Program did not include .the two issues, the annexed areas of Avalon Contracts The council approved hir- ing Parsons Brinckerhoff to per- form a feasibility study for the Airport in tha Sky under a Federal Aviation Administration Planning Grant. While the city is hiring the firm, 95 percent of the cost will be reimbursed by the FAA and the remaining 5 percent will be reimbursed by the Catalina Island Conservancy. Councilmember Sue Rikalo recused herself from the vote to avoid a conflict of interest. The vote was 4-0. The council also approved a new contract with Aladdin Cleaning to pick up trash and recycling containers throughout Avalon. A complicating factor came up when staff was unable to find any paperwork concerning the extension of the original contract with the Edmundo Vega, owner of Aladdin Cleaning. There was no paperwork con- cerning authorized fee increases Vega received over the years. Vega said he never received any paperwork. According to the staff report by Charlie Wagner, Vega and city staff disagreed about the Canyon and Pebbly Beach. The update requires approval by the Coastal Commission. An update was started in 1998 and was never completed." Cook wrote that updating the LCP is now critical as Avalon begins planning the development of Quail/Citrus Canyon. If Avalon doesn't update the LCP, there will be a consequence. "All development outside the original city limits would require Coastal Commission approval," Cook wrote. Avalon to offer early retire- . ment The council approved on sec- ond and final reading an ordinance that adds two years of service credit for some local employees. According to the staff report by Interim City Manager Steve Hoefs, this is an early retirement incen- tive tO members of the California Public Employees Retirement System. Hoefs wrote that offering early retirement was a cos.t sav- ing measure that would reduce the size of Avalon's public workforce "through means other than lay- offs."
