Motor Carrier Part 382 Alcohol and Drug Testing Program. Recommendation: Council adopt the Motor Carrier Part 382 Alcohol and Drug Testing Program. Pulled from the Consent Calendar. Jill Fox, Finance Director, stated Council had previously adopted an Alcohol and Drug Policy and the item being considered was the Federally mandated implementation phase of that program. DOT required that a program be in place for drivers in "safety sensitive" functions. Informal bids were held and St. Mary's Hospital would be conducting the random selection for testing and the training of employees and supervisors. They would also assist with the DOT compliance requirements. The program included consequences for positive testing. Motion by Councilmember Eagan, Seconded by Counciimember Drake, passed 4-0-1 with Councilmember Cross absent, to adopt the Motor Carrier Part 382 Alcohol and Drug Testing Program. 6.6 Award of Bid for Motorgrader Purchase. Recommendation: Council approve "piggy back" purchase of Moturgrader with Cashman Equipment utilizing thc Plumas County bid results. Pulled from the Consent Calendar. Mayor McCormack requested that justification be included in staff reports for equipment purchases. Tom Covey, Director of Public Works, stated the motorgrader would replace two older motorgraders that were in poor mechanical condition. Due to the present condition of the existing motorgmders they could not be used for snow removal. Councilmember Carpenter questioned the savings by "piggy backing" on the Plamas County bid. Mr. Covey responded that the savings to the Town would be approximately $35,000. Councilmember Eagan questioned the status of the Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) program. Mx. Wright replied that it was an eight month process and would be completed by the end of the fiscal year. He noted that the proposed action would replace two pieces of used equipment and delete one piece of equipment from inventory. Phillip Shott questioned if the Town had looked at used equipment in order to save money. Mx. Covey responded that Caterpillar had a five year buy-back program in which the Town leased the equipment for $174,000 and at the end of the five years, Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 2 they would buy it back for $140,000. He also felt due to the usage of the motorgrader it was more cost effective to purchase it new. Motion by Mayor McCormack, Seconded by Councilmember Drake, approved 4-0-1 with Councilmember Cross absent, to approve "piggy back" purchase of a motorgrader with Cashman Equipment utilizing the Plumas County bid results. 6.7 Snow Removal Contract - Prosser Lake Heights. Recommendation: Council reject all bids and authorize staff to re-advertise for snow removal services in the Prosscr Lakeview Heights area. Pulled from the Agenda. PUBLIC HEARINGS 7.1 Public Hearing to consider the appeal of a Planning Commission action to deny the industrial warehouse building portion of land use application 94-104/HSP, Edgar Stratton, applicant/owner. Recommendation: Council uphold the Planning Commission action to deny the warehouse building portion of the application and the added bonding requirement for the Stratton Hearing Site Plan application. (Continued from the meeting of 10/17/96) Tony Lashbrook, Director of Community Development, gave a brief background and description of the project. The proposed usage would be for a furniture storage/moving business. He then gave a slide presentation of the site and adjacent parcels. Mayor McCormack questioned if the proposal met the Town design guidelines. Mr. Lashbrook stated that staffreviewed the proposal and that it complied with the Town design guidelines. The Planning Commission disagreed and gave staff policy direction that buildings that faced the fiver should have higher standards, be oriented to the river, and utilize higher quality materials. He then reviewed the applicable design guidelines. The Planning Commission had denied the building design without prejudice which would allow them to reconsider a modified design. Councilmember Eagan questioned if there would be a change in the flood plain. Mr. Lashbrook stated that mass grading had been done as part of the subdivision which had been closely supervised by Lahonton. Staffwas comfortable that there was not a problem with flooding on the property. This being the time and place as advertised, the public hearing was declared open. Bob Maddox, attorney representing Edgar Stratton, informed the Council that they had dropped the appeal regarding the bond and were dealing only with the design of the building. They believed that it should be a ministerial site plan as it met all the requirements. They had worked out the design of the building with staff and staff had determined that it was in compliance with the General Plan. The Planning Commission had denied the plan with a determination that it was not in Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 3 compliance with the design guidelines. He then presented an exhibit of the building design, color, and landscaping. He felt a metal building was appropriate architecture for an industrial park and noted that it was consistent with 90% of the existing buildings in the area. The existing veterinary building had a CUP as it was a non- conforming use. They felt that everything that could be done to provide visual relief was being done. The roof was similar to surrounding buildings and the coated metal roof was consistent with the guidelines. They were willing to do anything reasonable, i.e. adding several windows or planting more trees to alleviate the blank walls. They did not feel a wood stmctum was appropriate or economically feasible for their use. The building would not be particularly visible from the other side of the river and they asked for fair and reasonable treatment. They were willing to work with the Town, but the building had to be economically feasible or they would not be able to compete. Councilmember Eagan questioned what would be done with the balance of the property when the temporary uses were done. Mr. Lashbrook responded that staff felt them would be another proposal in the future. Stephanie Olivieri, Mountain Area Preservation Foundation (MAPF), stated they were concerned because it was one of the last remaining parcels on the river in the industrial park. The guidelines for the Downtown Study Area were being developed and would hold developments on the river to a higher standard. She noted that all adjacent properties had voluntarily met higher standards because they were located on the river. She felt the project could be modified with a break in the roof line, more windows, and additional landscaping. A lot of mistakes had been made in the past regarding the river corridor and it needed to be cleaned up. She urged Council to uphold the Planning Commission decision. Mr. Maddox stated that Mr. Stratton was trying to do something that the Town would be proud of. He had a tenant ready if the building was approved. If not approved it could put him out of business. Phillip Shott stated Mr. Stratton was looking at the bottom line, i.e. whether the building was economically feasible. He felt the proposed building was consistent with other buildings in the area. There being no further public testimony, the public heating was declared closed. Mr. Lashbrook stated staff was working on the Code adopted from the County and that there was no provision in industrial/commemial zoning for outside storage. Originally there was no use proposed, it was then changed to an outdoor tow yard and storage, and had then been put on hold by the applicant. Mr. Stratton had returned in May with the proposal for furniture storage. He clarified that the veterinary building required a CUP and was not a non-conforming use. Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 4 Mayor McCormack questioned if Council could take action other than denying or accepting the Planning Commission decision. Mr. Lashbrook responded the Planning Commission decision was without prejudice which would allow the applicant to return to the Planning Commission with a different design. He felt with architectural improvements the building could be approvable. Mr. Crabb informed Council that they could refer the project back to the Planning Commission without denial and the applicant could again appeal to the Council. The Planning Commission would hear it without new fees being incurred. Councilmember Drake questioned if the applicant wanted to go back to the Planning Commission with a redesign. Mr. Maddox responded that they did not. Mayor McCormack stated he had walked the property and felt the building would be very visible. It was a significant issue and he commended the Planning Commission for their decision. Councilmember Carpenter stated he had also walked the site and supported the Planning Commission policy direction for different standards along the river. Motion by Councilmember Carpenter, Seconded by Councilmember Eagan, passed 4-0-1 with Councilmember Cross absent, to uphold the Planning Commission action to deny the request without prejudice. Councilmember Carpenter was hopeful that the applicant would go back and work out a way to do the project that would be aesthetically acceptable and also economical. Councilmember Eagan stated a lot of time had been spent on developing a "vision" for the river area and it was difficult to start moving in that direction, but she felt the community expected that of the Council. 8. COUNCIL IMMEDIATE (9-12 MONTH) PRIORITIES - None STAFF REPORTS 9.1 Road Acceptance Policy. Recommendation: Council amend the Private Road Acceptance Standards; authorize the Town Engineer to record acceptance of River Park Place and Bear Meadows Court into the Town maintained road system; and provide stalTwith direction related to cut-rem TSSA revenue in the Road Acceptance Formula. Mr. Wright gave a brief history of the Private Road Acceptance Policy and Road Committee actions. Citizens owning property along private roads felt there was a fairness issue which should be considered. Staff took another look at the Private Road Acceptance Formula to see if there were exceptions for Council to consider. The exception took into consideration what the properties along the private roads would have had to pay if the road measures had passed. Bear Meadows Court and River Park Place were two very short roads and densely occupied. After review Town'Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 5 staff determined that they both met the criteria. If the I/4 mile of streets were accepted into the Town system it would not add any new tax revenue as they were already generating taxes. The two roads had been recently built to the standards required by the adopted policy. River Park Place had been maintained on an on- going basis and Bear Meadows Court was a newer street that had not had on-going maintenance. There were a few longitudinal cracks on Bear Meadows Court and there would be a requirement that maintenance be done before the Town accepted the mad. The issues were whether the Council wanted to open the door and amend the standards or wait and refer it to the future Road Committee. Mr. Wrigjt stated that Councilmember Cross had expressed concern that the door would be opened without a broader view of all of the mad problems. He did not feel that it should be approved at the present time, but be referred to the Road Committee. Mr. Wright stated another issue was the TSSA's; staff did not calculate or give credit for existing TSSA revenues in the formula. They were not considered because Proposition 218 would create additional burdens on the Town and TSSA's could change based upon future Council action. There was also the issue of "through" streets, i.e. streets in subdivisions that connected one portion of Town with another portion of Town. Property owners felt the requirement by the Town to have a through street, which would be used by the rest of the community, would deteriorate it at a faster rate. Councilmember Drake stated it would open the door and noted that Council had already received another request from Donner Lake Woods. He had a tendency to agree with Councilmember Cross, but it was an issue that had to be addressed. Mr. Wright stated that staff had reviewed the figures for Donner Lake Woods and they would not qualify for consideration. Councilmember Carpenter stated there had been discussion in the past regarding Bear Meadows Court meeting the Town road standards. Jon Lander, Town Engineer, responded that the policy stated that roads would be accepted that were built to the standards at the time they were built. Bear Meadows Court was built to the standards at the time it was built, but there were longitudinal cracks which could be repaired. Councilmember Eagan stated she had talked to Councilmember Cross and he noted that the Road Committee had discussed the issue at length. She requested that Councilmember Carpenter give his views. Councilmember Carpenter stated he was a member of the Road Committee and the subject had been discussed over the period of a year. They did not want to bring in roads that would cost the rest of the taxpayers unfairly, but felt the approach staffused made a lot of sense. There could be a question as to how real the numbers were because it was based upon old data, but he felt if it was in error it was that the numbers were conservative. It would take until Spring or longer for a new Council and/or Road Committee to make any Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 6 decision or recommendation. Opening the door to other subdivisions was not a great risk if the same standards were applied. Councilmember Eagan felt Councilmember Cross' concerns were not with snow removal but the maintenance of the road infrastructure. She questioned if the costs for on-going maintenance in the future would be covered. Councilmember Carpenter felt the entire package of costs to maintain roads covered the maintenance conservatively. Jim Porter, Law Offices of Porter Simon, representing Dave Baker, felt there were two issues: 1) what to do with the deplorable condition of the roads, and 2) the two roads being considered. Bear Meadows Court and River Park Place were the only two roads that met the criteria and, therefore, Council would not be setting a precedent. The numbers utilized would only get better as the areas built out. It also did not include the TSSA. Mayor McCormack stated when the parcel charge was added to the road assessment it would replace the parcel charge. He felt it was appropriate that the TSSA be excluded. Mike Horn, Co-Owner of Truckee Rents, stated the property owners were a non- profit organization and were presently generating $45,000 which was more than double the amount required by the formula. He requested Council's approval of their request. Mayor McCormack agreed with Councilmember Carpenter and, in fairness, there was nothing else Council could do but accept the roads into the Town system because both exceeded the formula requirements. He felt it appropriate to defer the general policy aspects until reviewed by the Road Committee. George Robertson stated he was not against the addition of the two roads into the Town's system. Everyone had to pay their share of government because property taxes only covered the budget for the Sheriff's Office contract. Councilmember Eagan stated Council wanted to create an incentive for creative development so in the future it would not add to the problem. When developments became fully self-sustaining they should be rewarded. The two roads before Council were very efficient subdivisions and she felt that should be rewarded because they were paying for their roadway. Motion by Councilmember Eagan, Seconded by Councilmember Carpenter, passed 4-0-1 with Councilmember Cross absent, to approve the Private Road Acceptance Standards to allow for the inclusion of Bear Meadows Court and River Park Place into the Town road system. Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 7 Councilmember Drake questioned if the revision of the formula was included in the motion. Councilmember Eagan replied it was not included in the motion. Councilmember Carpenter stated the last paragraph of the policy stated "... can be effective only after passage ...." and questioned if the policy should be amended to delete the paragraph. Mr. Wright recommended that the policy be amended to add an exception to the paragraph, i.e. "Allow calculation of the road ballot measures, Measure D and ½ cent sales tax, impacts. Amendment to Motion by Counciimember Eagan, Seconded by Councilmember Carpenter, to add the following sentence to the last paragraph of the Private Road Acceptance Standards - "Allow calculation of the road ballot measures, Measure D and ~ cent sales tax, impacts. Mr. Wright recommended a condition that Bear Meadows Court provide the necessary road maintenance, to the satisfaction of the Town Engineer, prior to recordation. Amendment to Motion by Councilmember Eagan, Seconded by Councilmember Carpenter, to add the condition that Bear Meadows Court provide the necessary road maintenance, to the satisfaction of the Town Engineer, prior to recordation. Motion, as amended, approved 4-0-1 with Councilmember Cross absent. 9.2 Creation of a Joint Powers Authority to Establish an Airport Land Use Commission for the Areas Surrounding the Truckee Tahoe Airport. Recommendation: Council approve Resolution 96-39. Tony Lashbrook, Director of Community Development, gave a brief overview on how an Airport Land Use Commission would affect the land use and development in Truckee. The Foothills Area Airport Land Use Commission had functioned as the Airport Land Use Commission for Placer County and Nevada County. Placer County requested that the Placer County Board of Supervisors appoint the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency as the Airport Land Use Committee for Placer County. The Town would then have to deal with two separate commissions regarding development around the Truckee Airport. Therefore, stuff of all agencies felt the Airport and the land use around it would be best served by one commission. The proposal would create a joint powers agreement among the four affected parties. Mayor McCormack stated Eldorado County, Sierra County, Placer County, and Nevada County were a part of the Foothills Area Land Use Commission. He felt there was general agreement among the Commission that there should not be two separate commissions. Councilmember Drake noted that the manager of the Airport was also in support of the JPA. Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 8 9.3 9.4 Mayor McCormack stated SPO had directed staff to draft a resolution regarding the delegation of the airport land use activities to the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency with a concurrent formation of a JPA to deal with the Truckee Airport. The most efficient way to do that would be to designate SPO as the airport land use commission. He noted that the first paragraph of the Resolution should be amended from "with Placer County" to "within Placer County" in the first sentence and to include the three parties, i.e. Nevada County, Placer County, and the Town of Truckee. Councilmember Eagan questioned the pitfalls of entering into the JPA. Mr. Lashbrook stated it could get bogged down in the creation of the JPA. He felt the upside was the continued cooperation between the Town and the Airport District. Motion by Councilmember Drake, Seconded by Councilmember Carpenter, passed 4-0-1 with Councilmember Cross absent, to approve Resolution 96-39 as amended. Update on County Wide Re-Zoning Process. Recommendation: Council provide direction to staff regarding the upcoming Nevada County Board of Supervisors public hearing on the County wide re-zoning. Mr. Lashbrook stated the Town's input to the County had been consistent throughout the process. The Board would be holding a public heating on November 13th and he recommended that staff attend with a representative from Council. He felt they should be there to show interest and respond only if asked for input. Mayor McCormack questioned by what mechanism timing was implied in the development of the Interim Development Reserve Zone (IDR). Mr. Lashbrook replied that there was no criteria for approval of development. He felt the County had taken a major step in identifying the four areas for the IDR. Motion by Councilmember Drake, Seconded by Councilmember Carpenter, and passed 4-0-1 with Councilmember Cross absent, to follow staff recommendation to attend the hearing and not comment initially. Mayor McCormack stated he would attend the public hearing with staff, Ordinance Prohibiting Loitering, Obstructing Sidewalks, Highways, etc. Recommendation: Council introduce Ordinance 96-06 - adding Chapter 9.17 to the Truckee Municipal Code. (The minutes reflect the published agenda order.) Jack Bayer, Chief of Police, stated that the item was brought to Council at the request of the business owners at the Gateway Shopping Center and Truckee River Associates due to the problem of skateboarders and harassment of customers. Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 9 Mayor McCormack questioned if the ordinance dealt with loitering throughout Town. Chief Bayer stated it could be enforced within the Town limits if loitering became a problem. Mayor McCormack stated the Council had adopted a ~xespassing ordinance and questioned if that would apply. Chief Bayer responded that the District Attorney refused to prosecute under the Penal Code and stated that it was a community problem. Councilmember Eagan questioned if other cities in the area had similar ordinances, Mr. Crabb replied that other cities had ordinances that varied in degree and approach, Mayor McCormack noted that the ordinance would give the Sheriff's Office the ability to deal with the problem when it arose. Chief Bayer stated they would not enforce the ordinance unless they were called out to a specific problem. Councilmember Drake felt the ordinance was drafted fairly. Suzie Cordero, representing Truckee River Associates, stated the Gateway Center had hired offduty sheriffs and security personnel as they were having a problem with spitting, talking back to customers, etc. The ordinance would allow control. Doug Jones stated that Gateway Center was the only place in Truckee to do anything and that a lot of people loitered - it was not just teenagers. He felt the Town should supply the youth with a recreation center, skate park, etc. Taylor Stephens stated if the Town wanted them to stop "hanging out" it should give them a place to go. He had not seen a problem at Gateway Center and felt the Sheriff's Office was harassing people, Damon Montagano stated he worked at Safeway and many of the teens went to the Gateway Center to meet someone. They spent money at the stores and contributed to the community. Arron Stephens questioned if the ordinance would be applied to everyone, Chief Bayer stated it would only be enforced when their Office was called. Councilmember Drake stated the ordinance was for everyone and addressed the business owners concerns. It was not a license for the Sheriffs Department to hassle teens. Councilmember Carpenter stated that the South Lake Tahoe skateboard park had been built with volunteer efforts and donations. Recreation was not a Town function but a Recreation & Parks District function. Councilmember Eagan stated the youth of the community had raised money and designed the skatepark and no taxpayer Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 10 9.5 money was involved. They also policed the facility in order to avoid any negative appearance. Chief Bayer informed the Council that the Recreation & Parks District would allow the use of their property for a skatepark if the insurance issue premium could be lowered. Councilmember Eagan stated the issue was not "hanging out" but behavior. She was concerned, if adopted, the ordinance would put in place a lot of rules when common sense should take place. Councilmember Drake stated the Center tried to deal with the problems on their own, but because the problem had escalated they could no longer afford to pay for the extra security. He felt it was a sign of the times and that government had to protect the tax paying citizens. Mayor McCormack stated private businesses had a right to adequate use of their facilities. The ordinance was a mechanism of relief and was not aimed at young people. Councilmember Carpenter stated if the ordinance went too far and became a harassment issue he expected the youth to return to the Council. Council was trying to be fair and the ordinance would only apply to those causing problems. Doug Jones stated that most business owners called the Sheriff's Office on the skateboarders and not on bicyclists or rollerbladers. They had jobs and were taxpayers. He recommended that a legal waiver be required for skatepark users. Mayor McCormack stated that was a tough legal issue as the owner of such a facility was ultimately responsible. Damon Montagano stated teens had been told of different places to skateboard by the SherifFs Office and were then harassed when they skated there. Josh Susman, Councilmember-Elect, felt there were two separate issues. If the youth wanted to have a place to skate they had the ability to make that change. The loitering issue was completely different. Motion by Councilmember Drake, Seconded by Councilmember Carpenter, passed 4-0-1 with Councilmember Cross absent, to introduce Ordinance 96-06. Council recessed at 7:54 p.m. and reconvened at 8:02 p.m. Truckee River Pedestrian/Bicycle Bridge Project. Recommendation: Council approve Resolution 96-41 requesting that Nevada County Transportation Commission allocate Surface Transportation Program funds as budgeted in fiscal year 1996/97. Jon Lander, Town Engineer, stated the Town was seeking funding Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 11 10, with the Truckee Sanitary District for a new structure across the Truckee River. It was one of only twenty-three projects that had been funded in Northem California. He noted that the money being used for the match could be used for roads but the total project was over $700,000 and he felt it was good leveraging of the Town's $25,850. Motion by Councilmember Drake, Seconded by Councilmember Eagan, passed 4-0-1 with Councilmember Cross absent, to approve Resolution 96-41. 9.6 Abandonment of the Public Interest in the Slope and Drainage Maintenance Element of a Recreational Easement on Lots 32, 45, 46, 50, 51, and 52 Within the Gienshire Subdivision, Unit 2. Recommendation: Council approve Resolution 96~35. Councilmember Carpenter stated he would abstain from participation due to a conflict of interest, he left the meeting at 9:06 p.m. Jon Lander, Town Engineer, stated the item had been referred to staff at the October 3rd meeting for clarification regarding the ownership and description of the easement and appropriate abandonment process. The proposed action was the abandonment of the slope and drainage maintenance element of the easement as it was apparent that it had not been used and there was no future need. The resolution met the needs of the Streets & Highway Code regarding abandonment. The abandonment of the recreational element of the easement had been removed from the resolution and would be handled by the homeowner's association. Geoff Stephens, General Manager, Glenshire Property Owners Association, stated it was his understanding that the Association would provide a conduit for public notice, but that the Town would do the abandonment of the recreational element of the easements. Mr. Crabb stated the Town did not have authority over the recreational element of the easement, that authority belonged to the property owners. The recommended action created a process in which to address the interests held by the Town. Mayor McCormack stated the recreational element would have to be dealt with at some time. Mr. Crabb replied that it was a property owner issue and not a Town issue. Motion by Councilmember Drake, Seconded by Mayor McCormack, passed 3- 0-1-1 with Councilmember Cross absent and Councilmember Carpenter abstaining, to approve Resolution 96-35. MATTERS OF INTEREST TO COUNCIL MEMBERS 10.1 Source Reduction and Recycling Element and Household Hazardous Waste Element Mayor McCormack stated the public hearing would be held on December 19th. Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 12 11.

Closed Session was not held. 12. ADJOURNMENT - Mayor McCormack adjourned the meeting at 9:15 p.m. by: Respectfully submitted, STEPHEN L. WRIGHT, Town Manager Vicki C. Soder~uist, CMC~uty Town Clerk Town Council Minutes November 7, 1996 Regular Page 13
