June 19, 2017 Meeting at City Hall

On June 19, 2017 City Staff held a meeting at City Hall to facilitate continued discussions between Cal Water Staff and neighbors of the Cal Water Crest Road site. Cal Water Staff provided the neighbors with a status update on the landscaping and fencing plans. At that meeting, Chow Engineering, Inc., was introduced to the neighbors as the consultant hired by Cal Water to assist in preparing the landscape and fencing plan, as well as crafting mitigation measures to address potential noise and dust impacts related to the overall operation of the site. Cal Water informed the City at this meeting that they were continuing to work with a landscape designer to further develop the landscaping and fencing plans. During the discussions at the June 19th meeting, Cal Water Staff and the neighbors realized that there was not enough time to coordinate schedules for necessary site visits and to finalize the landscape and fencing plans for review at another neighborhood meeting in order to provide the Planning Commission with a meaningful status report at the July 11th meeting. Thus, both parties agreed that the status report to the Planning Commission should be continued to the July 25th meeting. As such, Staff will be recommending that the Planning Commission continue, without discussion, the public hearing to its July 25th meeting.
