APPROVAL OF MINUTES

SNAPP / BUCHANAN moved approval of the November 22, 2010 minutes of the regular Council Meeting as submitted. MOTION CARRIED 7-0.


15 - MINUTE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD

Bruce Deile shared his opinions with regard to the traffic (red-light) cameras.

Yoshé Revelle shared his thoughts with regard to humanity as well as the treatment of prisoners.

Randy Elmore feels the traffic (red-light) cameras are a mistake and will be crossing a threshold that changes the relationship between government and the governed.

Johnny Grames took issue with traffic (red-light) cameras and communication with the members of the council and the city administration.

Cal Leenstra feels the density of Area 9 in the York Neighborhood should remain at 1,000 per unit.

A person, who wished to remain anonymous, has concerns about the jail proposal.

Cat Sieh, a member of B’DAMN, (Bellingham Downtown Alliance for Music & Nightlife) [AB 18967, Establish Entertainment District] commended the council for working with the community to develop and improve the noise ordinance that will better serve the downtown and Fairhaven areas. B’DAMN would love to see signs denoting the Entertainment Districts to encourage awareness and appreciation of the arts. She warned the council that without further measures music related noise will continue to cause controversy among downtown residents and business owners. She encouraged the city to create a committee to explore the creation of noise reducing codes for new construction within the entertainment districts; to look into the possibility of requiring landlords in these districts to disclose to potential residents that they will be living in a multi-use downtown area that experiences higher levels and longer hours of entertainment related noise; and suggested using free dispute resolution to encourage businesses and residents to take care of these issues in a positive and communicative way.


PRESENTATION(S)

AB19040 1. PRESENTATION OF RUSSIAN DELEGATION WITH THE OPEN WORLD LEADERSHIP PROGRAM THROUGH WHATCOM COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Mayor Pike presented Honorary Citizenship Certificates to five members of the visiting delegation. Information only.


PUBLIC HEARING(S)

AB19041 CB 13658
1. AN ORDINANCE TO ADOPT AMENDMENTS TO BMC CHAPTER 19.06 “TRANSPORTATION IMPACT FEES” [TIF] TO ALLOW VEHICLE TRIP TIF REDUCTION CREDITS OF UP TO 50% IN URBAN VILLAGES

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF BELLINGHAM AMENDING BELLINGHAM MUNICIPAL CODE (BELLINGHAM MUNICIPAL CODE) SECTIONS 19.06.030 C. AND 19.06.040 E. TO ALLOW VEHICLE TRIP REDUCTION CREDITS DESIGNED TO LOWER TRANSPORTATION IMPACT FEES IN MASTER PLANNED URBAN VILLAGES.”

Chris Comeau, Transportation Planner, reviewed the proposed amendments, which will include up to 50% in Vehicle Trip/Transportation Impact Fee Reduction Credits for select Urban Villages; adding minor language to subsections and formalizing some procedures.

Urban Villages being targeted are: Downtown, Samish Way, Fountain, Old Town, Barkley, Fairhaven and Waterfront (which will not be eligible until planning is complete).

Staff recommends adoption of the amendments.

Council President Knutson opened the public hearing.

Rick Nicholson Director of Service Development, Whatcom Transit Authority (WTA) expressed appreciation for the focus on moving toward incentivizing non-automobile trips. In response to a inquiry with regard to ridership, from Council Member Weiss, regarding a bus stop near Heath Tecna, Mr. Nicholson explained that they do random surveys on ridership and a 100% count every two years (next 100% count scheduled for April, 2011).

Todd Donovan, Chapter President, Futurewise Whatcom, spoke in support of the proposal.

Alex Ramal Sustainable Connections, spoke in support of the proposal.

There being no further comments, the public hearing was closed.

Council Member Lilliquist said this is the sort of program he was hoping the city would enact that would make it financially profitable to do what is best for the community, however, he does have some concerns. He noted:
    · he would like to see greater reductions on or near GO Lines and reduced reductions near the regular routes;
    · this proposal applies to those Urban Villages that have an approved Master Plan and yet includes three regions that don’t have approved Master Plans;
    · he would like to see modified language that if there was a proposed use generating over and above a certain amount of trips (citing proposed theatre complex in Barkley Village) then that project could be removed; and
    · the possibility of making this revenue neutral.

Council Member Weiss feels this is a good approach to helping infill but feels that this particular proposal needs more discussion, in particular:
    · the ordinance specifying that the [urban village] must have an adopted Master Plan;
    · boundaries;
    · levels of credits and other minor issues.

Council Member Lilliquist suggested having a sunset date to the TIF reduction in the event that development does not occur.

BORNEMANN / FLEETWOOD moved approval for first and second reading.
WEISS / LILLIQUIST moved to postpone consideration for one month. MOTION FAILED 2-5,
BUCHANAN, BORNEMANN, KNUTSON, SNAPP, FLEETWOOD OPPOSED.

Council Member Weiss will not support as, in his opinion, four of the five criteria needed to qualify for a neighborhood plan amendment have not been met. Additionally, he has concerns with regard to the Bakerview area: the airport is under a tremendous growth surge; three hotels are proposed on the opposite side of the freeway [from the airport]; the I-5 interchange is not compatible with easy airport access right now; Fred Meyer is car-centric and there is already gridlock on Bakerview in that area. Additionally, he feels if there were more residential, mixed use or density it would be an asset to Fred Meyer and the satellite stores along Bakerview and there should be a comprehensive and coordinated plan that looks at the entire area.
