  • Establish an in-lieu parking fee for properties located within the downtown area. Parking in-lieu fee allows development projects or conversion of uses to pay a designated fee (in-lieu fee) if providing off-street parking is not met as they are required by the zoning code. The purpose of the in-lieu parking fee is not to impose an additional fee or burden on development, but to provide an alternative for projects having difficulty meeting minimum requirements on-site due to space constraints, financial feasibility, or both. As such, the in-lieu parking fee can be seen as an economic development tool, facilitating otherwise unfeasible projects.
  • Agreement between the City of Hollister and San Benito County Arts Council for the Dunne Park Bench Project.
  • Gavilan College is seeking approval of Measure X in November 2018. The measure is a facilities bond that will improve and repair existing facilities and create new academic opportunities. Gavilan President Dr. Kathleen Rose will present a report and be available for questions.
  • Staff recommends that the City Council receive the report, direct staff to withdraw the City of Hollister ATP Cycle 3 application for Complete Streets and Safe Connections for West Hollister and direct staff to return with reports regarding recommendations for traffic calming on Central Avenue and use of matching Local Transportation and Regional Surface Program Transportation Funds committed with the West Gateway Streetscape Beautification Project.
