Hollister council to consider shopping center, park plan, 400 block appeal

Hollister city council members Monday will have a lot on their plates.

Council members will consider a development agreement for the new shopping center along the Highway 25 bypass, a nearly $4 million contract for a new taxiway at the airport, the park facility master plan, the mayor’s 400 block appeal, and elimination of the extra council meeting added just two months ago.

The following are some items on the agenda for the 6:30 p.m. meeting at Hollister City Hall, 375 Fifth St.        

Street sweeping RFP to address concerns                   

Staff is seeking approval to issue a RFP for Street Sweeping to address concerns that have been made about the current level of service and compensation.

Hollister Farms Development Agreement

The council will consider whether to approve the Subdivision Improvement Agreement and parcel map for the Hollister Farms Development, a conditionally approved commercial development with 15 lots for the construction of retail buildings. It would authorize the execution of the agreement for the improvement of associated infrastructure requirements, according to the agenda.

Taxiway contract for $3.85 million

The council will consider whether to accept bids and award a contract to Granite Rock Construction at $3,854,812.50 for the completion of the Hollister Airport’s taxiway project and authorize Kimley-Horn and Associates to provide construction support.

National Night Out plans

Temporary Closure of San Benito Street from 6th Street to 7th Street for the National Night Out Event on Aug. 6.

Repeater on water district property

This resolution would authorize an agreement with the Sunnyslope County Water District for the city to install a public safety radio repeater on property currently housing water tanks operated by the Sunnyslope County Water District, according to the agenda.

Park Facility Master Plan

The council will hold a public hearing to consider approval of a resolution adopting the Park Facility Master Plan update and approval of a supplemental appropriation.

Updated impact fees

The city will consider whether to update “Public Facilities Impact Fees” for Detention (Jail/Juvenile Hall), Library, Park Construction, Storm Drainage and Water and a new fee for City Hall/City Yard.

400 block appeal

Appellants Ignacio Velazquez; Save the 400 block have filed an appeal opposing the Planning Commission approval of the 400 block project. The mayor, who recuses himself from decisions on the 400 block because he owns The Vault property that neighbors the property, is arguing the condominium project’s density exceeds what’s allowed in the city code.

Repayment of grant award

This action appropriates $542,387 for repayment of a FEMA grant award of a “fire vehicle, Water Tanker/Tender.”

Eliminate extra council meeting   

On March 4, the council added a special meeting on the fourth Monday of each month for six months. On May 6, by a majority consensus, staff was directed to present a resolution to rescind that decision.
