5c. Update on Capital Improvement Program Projects - Informational Item. The City Council accepted the report.
5d. Consideration of Recommendation from the Tunnel Commission to Fill a Vacancy on the Tunnel Commission. Former Commissioner Al Ovrom resigned from the Tunnel Commission upon his election to the City Council in November 2006. The Tunnel Commission, which was given the task to act as a nominating committee on an as-needed basis when it was formed, discussed the issue of a replacement Commissioner at their January, February, March and April meetings. The City Council endorsed the Tunnel Commission's recommendation and appointed Darrell Sarich to fill the Tunnel Commission vacancy.
5e. Approval and Acceptance of the Coronado Cays Storm Drain Rehabilitation Project. Downstream Services, Inc. was issued a Notice to Proceed on April 3, 2006. The project was completed in accordance with the project plans and specifications on March 30, 2007. The City Council accepted the Coronado Cays Storm Drain Rehabilitation project and directed the City Clerk to file a Notice of Completion.
5f. Appointment to Fill One Vacancy on the Coronado Street Tree Committee. Since recent outreach efforts only generated one applicant and since there is a second anticipated vacancy on this committee later this year, staff recommends that the current applicant be appointed to fill the current vacancy and simultaneously be appointed to the follow-on three-year term. The City Council appointed Jean D. Somers to the Coronado Street Tree Committee to complete the remainder of a term ending on October 31, 2007 and to a subsequent three-year term due to expire October 31, 2010.

a. Steve Bruce, 564 I Avenue, spoke regarding the health implications due to the use of leaf blowers.
7. CITY MANAGER:
7a. Update on Council Directed Actions and Citizen Inquiries. No report.
8. PUBLIC HEARINGS:
8a. Public Hearing: Approval of a Resolution for a One-Lot Tentative Parcel Map to Allow for Condominium Ownership of Four Residential Units at 935 F Avenue in the R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) Zone (PC 4-07, Rauber, Steve). Tony Pena, Director of Community Development Department, introduced the agenda item.
Steve Rauber, applicant, requested that Condition 28B be removed and explained the changes in the proposed project that are meant to give separate private areas for each unit.
In response to Mayor Smisek's question about fire access, Kim Raddatz, Director of Fire Services, indicated that, with the 5' setback, it is workable.
Councilmember Monroe asked about landscaping in the side yards, parking for the units, and pedestrian access.
Mr. Pena pointed out a concern. If there is not an easement for the front to the rear there could be walls that would be blockable and would prevent access to the street or the alley. That is the crux of the issue for the flow of pedestrian traffic.
Councilmember Downey pointed out that this is billed as a tentative one lot parcel map to allow for condominium ownership. She understands that condominium ownership usually means that everyone has access to all of the land that is part of the condominiums. This seems that there will be separate ownership for the land.
Mr. Rauber responded by saying that there are different names for this type of situation. In theory, the concept is that there is a property line that goes down the middle and across between the buildings. Each piece of land goes with each unit and then they share common space from 50 to 51 feet, which is why they call them air lot subdivisions.
Ms. Downey asked if there is going to be any issue for EDCO to pick up trash for this particular parcel in both places. Mr. Pena explained that staff spoke with EDCO. They don't have a problem with street and alley pick ups for this particular block.
Mr. Monroe looked to Mr. Pena for a strong recommendation on this. Mr. Pena recommends staying with the easements. He explained that there is not enough time to evaluate all the permutations that could occur with a somewhat constrained lot. Mr. Monroe pointed out that Mr. Rauber could ask for a continuance.
Councilmember Ovrom referred back to the air lot split discussion and asked how you end up with individual ownership of one lot, legally.
Mr. Rauber explained that, in the condo plan, the lot gets divided and those people hold titles in that particular manner.
Peter Fait, Associate Planner, added that virtually every single parcel map the City has done for condominiums in the past five or six years have been this identical scheme. The State Department of Real Estate does permit this. There is no common area on the ground. It permits the common area to float over the property. It is not divided with property lines, per se, but there are exclusive use lines that are shown on the condominium plan that gets recorded after the map. The areas that the City wants to be used in common are put into easements to allow the reciprocal use.
Mr. Pena added that staff tried to distinguish between a subdivision of property versus the design of the buildings on the property. As a general rule, staff likes to have free flow on a lot of the people who own either the dwelling or a portion of the air space above it. It is desirable to have some freedom of movement on a lot. He really doesn't want to get into the design of the building. The reason for the easement is to do exactly what he just outlined - to allow freedom of access on the person's property. It may not even be an issue with the owners. The specifics can be worked out among the owners. The City, as an agency, should require easements.
Mayor Smisek asked if the City Council would like to go along with the tentative parcel map and see if the developer can work out some kind of agreement with staff that is satisfactory prior to bringing back the final map, and if Mr. Pena was comfortable with that suggestion. Mr. Pena responded in the affirmative.
Mayor Smisek opened the public hearing. Seeing no one wishing to speak on the item, the public hearing was closed.
Councilmember Tanaka commented that the point Mr. Pena made about the free flow on the lot is valid. There is a reason that particular requirement is there. The Coronado he grew up in is one where people do go from the front to the alley. He doesn't agree with removing that restriction. He thinks it is a common sense application. He won't feel any differently about removing 28B after a continuance.
Councilmember Monroe stated that he could go along with the Mayor's suggestion to be able to approve the map.
MSUC (Monroe/Ovrom) moved that the City Council adopt A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF CORONADO APPROVING A ONE LOT TENTATIVE PARCEL MAP FOR DEVELOPMENT OF FOUR CONDOMINIUM UNITS FOR LOTS 28, 29, AND 30, BLOCK 35, MAP 376 CBSI, ADDRESSED AS 935 F AVENUE, CORONADO, CA. The Resolution was read by Title, the reading in its entirety unanimously waived and adopted by Council as RESOLUTION NO. 8212. Staff and the applicant will continue to work on 28B to resolve the issue before coming back to the City Council for approval of the Final Map.
Councilmember Downey said she will support the Map but she addressed the idea of people going back and forth between the lettered streets and alleys. She doesn't have an issue with the general public not being able to traverse from front to back. She asked what the harm would be in having an easement so that future people could change the way things are going to be done now.
Mr. Tanaka summarized that he is not going to support any policy that doesn't at least create access amongst the people within that property to move back and forth. The owners can determine how things will actually be, but he thinks it is at least the smart thing to do to try to create some access and some open space there. He thinks that particular provision is there for a reason.
Mayor Smisek pointed out that, as in Country Club, keeping the easement and then working out among the owners how to use the easement, is another way of doing things.
Mr. Pena explained that the easement just allows someone to have access to the street or the alley. In most cases, that won't be a problem because the neighbors will work it out themselves. If they need the City's assistance, as would be the condition in an approved Map, the City could tell the homeowners' association to open up those gates.
Mayor Smisek thinks that the general direction the City Council is going in is towards approving the tentative Map. More discussion needs to take place on 28B. The City Council likes the idea of an easement remaining if at all possible. If not, the applicant will really have to convince Mr. Pena that what they are coming up with is a much better idea.
AYES: Downey, Monroe, Ovrom, Tanaka and Smisek
9. ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS: None.
10. COMMISSION AND COMMITTEE REPORTS:
10a. Report from the Port Commissioner Concerning Port Activities. Mayor Smisek explained that the Port Commissioner was note able to attend because he was at another meeting. He wanted to make sure that Coronado is aware of the discussion that is going to take place on the Red Bull Races which has to do with small airplanes racing over the Bay. There is a practice day and a race day. Initially they were going to stage out of North Island but that may not work out with the Navy. A concern is whether there will be a desire for people to come to Coronado to view the races. This is run by an international organization that does this around the country. The City is sending representatives to the meetings. The Port will work the meetings and will try to get all the input from the various jurisdictions involved and then will make a determination as to whether or not to allow this.
11. CITY COUNCIL BUSINESS:
11a. Council Reports on Inter-Agency Committee and Board Assignments.
Councilmember Monroe attended three SANDAG meetings, the SANDAG Board meeting, a Borders meeting, and a Transportation Committee meeting where $80 million in funds were approved for Highway 905 and SR 11, the new proposed freeway going to a third port of entry at the border. He met with Jeff Tyler of the Lambs' Players Theater regarding funding for the next fiscal year, attended a Special City Council meeting to approve a new, successfully negotiated contract with the CPOA, attended four MTS hearings regarding the award of additional taxi medallions to three cab companies in San Diego, a CCHOA meeting, and a SANDAG Prosperity Strategy Group meeting regarding continued prosperity for San Diego County. He also attended the Annual Flower Show and accompanying Saturday evening reception.
Councilmember Tanaka attended the Special City Council meeting to approve the labor contract with CPOA, met with Jeff Tyler of the Lambs' Theater, and chaired a Heartland Communications meeting.
Councilmember Ovrom attended the SDMAAC breakfast with Mayor Smisek and the City Manager to hear Admiral Zortman speak, a CIP Subcommittee meeting to discuss affordable housing, a meeting of the South County Economic Development Council, and met with Jeff Tyler of the Lambs' Theater. He advised that he would be attending a Metro Wastewater Strategic Planning meeting this coming Thursday.
Councilmember Downey attended the retirement ceremony for Jack Schwartz who has served the City for over 30 years as well as having had a successful military career. She attended an event in Sacramento co-sponsored by the California Coastal Coalition and the Southern California Wetlands Recovery Project, which is an annual meeting to bring water issues to the lawmakers in Sacramento. She reported on their efforts regarding Proposition 84 which provided $540 million that will go to beach restoration and water activities. Right now in the legislature there are five new bills on the subject of marine debris and cleanup issues. She described the growing issue of nyrtles - the plastic from manufacturing processes that blow out of trucks and accumulate on the beaches. She said she would bring a discussion back to the City Council regarding this, to include the problem of disposable fast food containers. Ms. Downey attended the League of California Cities quarterly business meeting and dinner with the City Manager and Fire Chief Raddatz. She represented the City at the League Coastal Issues and League Legislative committees, attended the Annual Flower Show Gala, worked in the Junior Women's Club section at the Flower Show, and met with Jeff Tyler of the Lambs' Theater. Ms. Downey thanked Lifeguard Captain Sean Carey who gave her a tour of the beach and showed her how the sand berms are moved annually. She announced that today is Mother Goose Day, a day to celebrate children's authors and to promote reading.
Mayor Smisek attended the Special City Council meeting approving the contract with the CPOA and the SDMAAC Breakfast with the City Manager and Councilmember Ovrom. He had the opportunity to sit with Admiral Zortman and have a discussion regarding the third carrier. He attended, as the City's representative, a CUSD strategic planning meeting regarding long term changes and discussions regarding education, the South Bay Mayors meeting, the Flower Show and annual Book Fair, Motorcars on MainStreet, and the Rotary Pancake Breakfast. He attended a meeting of the Coronado Shores Homeowners' group, which is similar in purpose to the CCHOA meetings. He indicated that he would look to the rest of the City Council to rotate the representation. The meetings are intended to occur twice a year. Mayor Smisek also met with MainStreet and Chamber of Commerce representatives.
11b. Direction to Staff Regarding the Terrazzo Sidewalk in the Vicinity of the Downtown Enhancement Project Phase III (800 Block of Orange Avenue). Ed Walton, Engineering and Project Development provided some background on the elements of the Downtown Enhancement Project. With respect to the terrazzo, it is a nice piece of work that adds a lot of character to downtown and is now showing its age. The staff recommendation is to remove the terrazzo and replace it with the same concrete used in the downtown enhancement program due to the problem that when the terrazzo gets wet, it is slick, and does not meet the ADA recommended coefficient of friction for walking. A variation, option 2, is to take out most of the existing terrazzo, replace it with the downtown colored concrete, while retaining specific elements of the terrazzo such as the compass and the panel in front of the ticket booth at the theater. This would limit the liability. A third option is to remove all of the terrazzo and replace it in kind. That would eliminate some of the problems with the age and cracking and save the character and design. It doesn't solve the problem of the coefficient of friction. A fourth option would be to leave the existing terrazzo and clean it up. A very fine wet sanding would clean the surface stains and bring out a little of the luster it had before. He doesn't think all the stains could be removed. Again, that option does not help with the coefficient of friction. The last option, which was unanimously recommended by the Design Review Commission, would be to protect, in place, the existing terrazzo. The Design Review Commission feels there is a lot of history there, and a lot of character, and for very good reasons they want to retain that.
There are about 150 lineal feet of terrazzo. It goes from the curb all the way to the property line and beyond. Staff's proposal would be to take out the terrazzo in the public right-of-way and replace it to match with the existing terrazzo on the private property side.
Mayor Smisek thinks that finding something that will work out for most people is the best option. The risk has to be addressed. The City is now aware of the danger and the liability to the City now increases dramatically if something should happen.
Councilmember Downey asked about claims coming in and if any of them are from the terrazzo.
Mr. Walton said he is not aware of any claims to the City.
Councilmember Ovrom is troubled by this and thinks that the issue of the theater and the terrazzo are linked. He asked if this is something the City Council has to decide right now or if this decision can be delayed while the City Council decides where it is going with the theater.
Mr. Walton pointed out that as part of the CIP, the City Council will be looking at approving construction funding for the 07-08 period. The City Council may want to consider deferring this because of the unknowns. Staff is before the City Council now because it would like to finish up the design. The City has a contract with the consultant to produce final plans.
Councilmember Monroe indicated that he has the same question as Mr. Ovrom. Would it be a problem to wait two weeks on this? Mr. Walton responded that it would not.
Joe Ditler, 1034 Encino Row, Coronado Historical Association Director, said it sounds like everyone wants to save the terrazzo. He shared some history on the theater. He said it had a well attended opening on March 14, 1947 with spot lights sweeping the sky. The movies playing at the time were "When Irish Eyes are Smiling" and "The Well Groomed Bride", "San Antonio" with Errol Flynn, "Rainbow Island" with Dorothy Lamoure, and "The Big Sleep" with Bogie and Bacall. When theater goers knew when they reached the terrazzo and smelled the popcorn they were really close to getting their tickets. It was a very exciting experience and part of the adventure of going to the Village Theater in those days. He reminded everyone of Pop Millar who used to lead dozens of Coronado youths to the theater every Saturday afternoon for a traditional matinee. He was known as the Pied Piper of Coronado as was documented in Life Magazine. Mr. Ditler would like to see the movie theater revived for the current generation to enjoy, but that the terrazzo, which is akin to a piece of public art, should be preserved to live forever as a tribute to what once was.
Jeff Tyler, 1427 Fifth Street, Lambs' Players Theater staff, pointed out that there is another beautiful piece of the terrazzo in front of the Lambs Theater. No one on the theater staff recalls anyone slipping or falling or it ever being roped off with yellow tape. He is aware, though, that fourteen years ago they put a non-slip finish on top of it. They do notice that people slow down when they come across the terrazzo to view it. The terrazzo in front of the movie theater is a beautiful piece of public art and he asked that the City preserve it.
Doug St. Denis, 710 Adella Avenue, spoke as a member of CHA, Design Review Chair, and the Public Art Subcommittee Vice Chair. She explained that both Design Review and the Public Art Subcommittee voted unanimously to preserve the terrazzo in its entirety if at all possible. She knows that members of the City Council feel the same way. She has fond memories of the Village Theater; she had her first date at there and remembers having her dime clutched in her hand in case her date didn't pay, which he did. She also knows that the City Council is responsible and is concerned with safety. In her research did some research she ran across Clifton's cafeteria, built in 1935 in downtown Los Angeles on Broadway. It is owned by the fourth generation of the Clinton family, where 20,000 pairs of feet cross the terrazzo there every day. Owner Robert Clinton remembers his father throwing out rock salt when it rained to keep people from slipping, but he said no one ever slipped and no one has every sued. He noticed that people would just slow down and take smaller steps. No non-slip surface has ever been put on top of the terrazzo. Ms. St. Denis said the city bears the liability. In 1985 the City repaired the sidewalk and put in concrete to match the background of the terrazzo and it still looks fine. She volunteered her time and energy to find a solution and stated that if the City is successful in bringing the theater back to life it would be such a shame if the terrazzo was gone.
Gerry MacCartee, 836 D Avenue, on the block right behind the Village Theater, has never heard of anyone slipping in the forty years she has been there. She reminded the City Council that this is so much a part of Coronado's history. Coronado's past is as a movie town. There were movie stars in Coronado; movies were made in Coronado; there was even a movie studio in Coronado. She stated that History is very rarely convenient. We have to learn sometimes to live around it. It gives a town a soul. It defines who we are, where we came from, and how we value the temporary trusteeship we have been given. Sometimes finding a solution is much more difficult than what seems the reasonable and immediate answer, but once gone, it is gone forever. How fun would it be to create a sign that says, "You are looking at the original terrazzo sidewalk that was laid when the Coronado Village Theater opened its doors in March 1947. Please be mindful of it when it rains."
Susan Keith, 801 Tolita Avenue, said she hopes the City Council will consider trying to save this area of the sidewalk in front of the theater. It is the sentimental value to many who live here in town. She commented that the new sidewalks downtown are great, but appealed to the City Council to please try to save the terrazzo that is very important to many people. Sometimes new isn't the way to go.
Rita Sarich, Coronado MainStreet, reminded the City Council that May is National Preservation Month. The terrazzo is a beautiful art piece and MainStreet hopes that the City Council will try to save that in the best way possible.
Mayor Smisek suggested that an interim step, if the Council chooses, would be to press on with the rest of the project as far as design is concerned and leave that section empty for the design phase. If it is going to be a preservation of what exists there, or something can be found to come close to satisfying the risks that are there, then it can be looked at separately.
Councilmember Monroe said he would support keeping the terrazzo. He really likes the repair that was done. He wonders if there is a way to preserve the compass and the entrance to the theater and then redoing the other parts of the terrazzo that seem to be in pretty bad shape in the same design as what is there today. He hopes the City will work to preserve or repair it.
Councilmember Tanaka appreciates the presentation and the public comment. Coming into the meeting his feeling was to replace the old terrazzo with a new terrazzo. The repaired portions look nice to him. Whether or not the City would be better off replacing the whole terrazzo with another terrazzo designed exactly like the one that was installed in the 1940s is debatable. After hearing today's discussion, he would be willing to move in the direction of preserving what exists now, to fix the areas where the terrazzo looks awful and preserve the sections that are in better shape. He agrees with the preservation of this piece of history.
Councilmember Downey thinks the City would be very hypocritical if the first time it has the opportunity to preserve history it didn't do so. She is in favor of finding a way to preserve the existing terrazzo. Replacing it might look better, but she thinks that the history would be lost doing that. Her concern for safety is to try to make sure the terrazzo is even to lessen the risk of people falling. If something can be done to put a non-slip finish on top, that would be great.
Councilmember Ovrom commented that the recommendation is to provide direction. It seems to him that there is general concurrence to not remove all of the terrazzo or replace it with concrete. Research can be done on what can happen with the theater, how much preservation and how much repair is needed on the terrazzo. Staff can proceed with the design for the area but leave this open for some more discussion.
Mayor Smisek summarized that the recommendation would be to block out where the terrazzo is currently and remove it from the design phase at this point. The remainder of the design can move forward, knowing that the City will either preserve what is there or replace it with terrazzo or a combination of both. The dimensions will be the same.
MSUC (Ovrom/Monroe) moved that the City Council direct staff to move forward with the design while leaving this element out temporarily while staff ascertains more information as discussed to help the City Council come to a final decision.
AYES: Downey, Monroe, Ovrom, Tanaka and Smisek

3. ORAL COMMUNICATIONS: Agency Member Downey reported on a meeting she attended with Senator Denise Ducheny, County Supervisor Greg Cox, Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox and other South Bay mayors, and several members of the UCSD Hospital leadership staff regarding health care in the South Bay. The attendees were briefed by the Chief Executive Officer of Scripps Hospital on their plans for earthquake retrofitting. They are finding that between the current 2010 and 2030 retrofitting requirements, it will be more cost effective to tear down and rebuild than to retrofit hospitals. There was also discussion regarding uninsured persons not being able to receive new program that could be beneficial for Sharp Coronado to know about. When uninsured patients are provided service in the emergency room they are automatically scheduled for follow up care at an outside clinic that provides free care. The ER staffs are making the appointments for the patients. It's a great way to keep people from clogging up emergency rooms. Another meeting is being considered to further ideas on how all the South Bay hospitals, including Sharp Coronado Hospital, can work together on health care issues in our common area and serving the uninsured.
