Coronado City Council will meet Tuesday at 4 p.m. to discuss several issues important to the city's future including reconstruction of a public dock in Glorietta Bay, approval of a contract to install the Scenic Loop bike path, the city's financial future and much more.
City council will be asked to review and consider changes to the city's standards for the development of residential homes.
Zoning laws dictate a variety of rules ranging from height limits to population density to setbacks. The review was suggested by former City Councilwoman Carrie Downey.
To read more about the city's history of residential zoning see page 237 of the agenda packet.
City council will vote whether to award a $90,000 contract to a company to install the Scenic Loop. The proposed Scenic Loop bike path would create a bike path to travel along the periphery of the Crown City.
City council may also vote to change where the currently proposed bike path may travel.
Local residents voiced some concerns and had mixed feelings about the project at a public forum held last month.
About 12 emails, calls or letters were sent to the city in opposition to the bike path. Roughly 60 signatures were gathered from Country Club residents who said they oppose any part of the bike path being on Coronado Avenue, Balboa Avenue, Acacia Way, Country Club Lane, Cabrillo Avenue and Carob Way.
Two letters were also sent in favor of the bike path and two with strong suggestions for ways to improve safety on the proposed Scenic Loop.
Offshoot bike paths for Bayshore Bikeway users have been installed in San Diego, Imperial Beach and Chula Vista.
To read more about the proposed bike path or read letters for or against the Scenic Loop, item I on the consent calendar, see pg. 177 of the agenda packet.
A notice of completion of renovations to the 15th tee at Coronado Municipal Golf Course will be considered Tuesday.
This is item J on the consent calendar.
City staff will ask city council to consider approval of the reconstruction of a public dock in Glorietta Bay which is part of the city's Glorietta Bay Master Plan to support 34 slips.
Read more about the changes on pg. 207.
Coronado City Council will be asked if the city should accept a one-year loan agreement for a statue.
The statue is named Imagine or Imagine Dragon and is being donated by Lemon Grove artist Kent Kraber. In June the Public Art Working Group of the Coronado Cultural Arts Commission made a recommendation that city council approve the agreement and place the statue on the front lawn of the library.
With a concrete base, the copper brown dragon statue stands 14-feet-high and weighs 350 pounds.
The statue could also be placed behind the Coronado Community Center, city staff said.
Read more about the proposed statue on page 301 of the agenda.
City policy states that a City Councilmember may add an item to a future agenda if a majority of the Coronado City Council is in favor of the addition. Among issues that may be discussed at future meetings:
- Mayor Casey Tanaka has requested Coronado City Council vote in favor of overturning Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission. In its 2010 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court gave more power to corporations to take part in American elections and allows them to spend unlimited amounts of money. Tanaka supports City Council passing a resolution that supports an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to overturn the 2010 decision.
- City Councilman Al Ovrom has requested the city place portable toilets at Avenida del Sol to provide public restrooms to beachgoers. Several members of Coronado Shores community voiced opposition to the idea of public restrooms in the area when the topic came up last month.
- City Councilman Richard Bailey has requested city staff report on the pros and cons of Coronado being a charter or general law city.
Letters about each of these issues raised by members of the Coronado City Council can be found in the agenda packet.
See how the city's investment portfolio fared in the market over the course of the prior fiscal year with a presentation detailed on pg. 137 of the agenda packet.
Before the start of the meeting Tuesday city council will meet in closed session to discuss lawsuits and staff will meet with labor negotiators.
