22-0050 114.2CityBus Transit Service ModificationsCC- ReportREPORT - CITYBUS TEMPORARY TRANSIT SERVICE MODIFICATION TO ADDRESS STAFFING SHORTAGE BACKGROUND: As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued, the City has been unsuccessful in recruiting enough new bus drivers to replace retiring drivers, inhibiting CityBus’ ability to restore service to the desired pre-pandemic levels. CityBus has experienced a net reduction in bus operators which threatens to impact service reliability on a near daily basis. To ensure consistent, reliable service for the public, the Transit Division proposes a minor temporary service reduction to be in effect until enough new drivers are recruited and trained to sustain higher service levels. RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the Transportation and Public Works Department that the Council, by resolution, approve a temporary minor reduction of weekday frequency on Santa Rosa CityBus Route 1 to ensure service reliability during the current staffing shortage.   Not available Video Video

The property is bisected by Roseland Creek in its southern portion and will be an important natural and recreational resource for the surrounding community. Over the course of many years, Recreation and Park staff have worked with the Roseland community to develop a Master Plan for the Community Park. Well over 20 public meetings and listening sessions were held over more than twelve years. Developed with tremendous community input, the final Park Master Plan leaves more than 80% of the land in a natural open state. Traditional park amenities will primarily be centered in the southern parts of the Park and will include picnic tables, playground, sport court area, restrooms, lawn and community g   Not available Video Video
22-0042 115.1Dutch Flohr Master Plan AmendmentCC- Public HearingPUBLIC HEARING - ADOPTION OF MASTER PLAN AMENDMENT FOR DUTCH FLOHR NEIGHBORHOOD PARK BACKGROUND: Dutch Flohr Neighborhood Park is 2.38-acre property located at 1160 Exeter Drive in Northwest Santa Rosa, immediately adjacent to Albert F. Biella Elementary School. Amenities include adult fitness area, picnic areas, lawn with established ornamental trees, trash cans, drinking fountain, paths, and two play areas for ages 2-5 & 5-12. The current play areas for preschoolers (age 2-5 years) and school age children (age 5-12 years) have equipment from 1989 when the Park was dedicated to the City. The two play areas are located at a distance too great to allow for supervision of children in both areas at the same time and need replacement and relocation. Additionally, associated pathways, benches and fitness equipment need to be updated to current standards. On October 27, 2020 Council approved an Agreement Number F002247 with Plural, San Francisco, CA to provide landscape architectural and engineering services for Dutch Flohr Neighborhood Park Master Plan Amendment.

The process must include at least four public hearings, one of which may be conducted as a community workshop. This will be the second of those four public forums.
