During the Citrus Heights City Council’s Oct. 10 meeting, city leaders will consider awarding a $1.2 million contract relating to future development at Sunrise Mall, as well as hold several public hearings and declare October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at City Hall, located at 6360 Fountain Square Drive. Here’s a brief summary of what’s included in the 288-page agenda packet:
- Domestic Violence. The City Council meeting will begin with a proclamation declaring the month of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
- 2020 Census. A presentation about the 2020 Census will be made by representative(s) from the Sacramento County Complete Count Committee.
- $600k Block Grant. The City Council will hold a public hearing regarding the draft allocation of an anticipated $600,000 in federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Funds for 2020. The draft allocation provides $90,000 for public services, $120,000 for administration and $390,000 for capital/housing activities, according to a staff report. Public services money is proposed to be split between Campus Life Connection, Meals on Wheels, Sacramento Self-Help Housing, Sunrise Christian Food Ministry and W.E.A.V.E., which all requested funding. Two organizations, About Kidz (after-school tutoring) and Crossroads Diversified Services (youth employment readiness), requested funding but were not given any funds in the draft allocation. Following the public hearing, final action is scheduled to take place at the Oct. 24 meeting.
- Building Codes and Regulations. The City Council will hold a second reading and a public hearing regarding proposed changes to the city’s building codes. A staff report says the changes are needed to bring existing codes into alignment with revisions in the California Code of Regulations, which are published every three years.
Regular Agenda Items:
- Sunrise Mall. The City Council will consider awarding a $1.2 million contract to the San Francisco-based Gensler architecture firm for the creation of a Specific Plan to guide future development at Sunrise Mall and preparation of an Environmental Impact Report.
- City Council Handbook Amendments. The council will consider amending its City Council Handbook to reflect necessary changes in light of the city’s transition to district-based elections. Draft changes largely include wording emphasizing a desire for leaders to make decisions on a city-wide basis rather than district-focused decisions.
- General Services: An update will be provided to the council by the General Services Division regarding the city’s Capital Improvement Projects.
- Police Department: The council will hear a report from the police department regarding a proposed memorial bench in honor of Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Stasyuk, a San Juan High School graduate who was killed in the line of duty last year.
