Report of Citywide Council Discussion Street Improvement Motion/Second Impact Fee Study Discussion of Motion Call the Question (roll call vote) BACKGROUND: At the January 22, 2008 City Council meeting the Council received a staff report on the current Street Improvement Impact Fee. At that meeting staff was directed to prepare ordinances to (1) permit the payment of a Street Improvement Impact Fee for the construction of Street Improvements resulting from newly constructed non-residential and multi- family residential development, (2) impose an in lieu fee for new development if existing conditions include street improvements on site, due to the impact of development on a citywide basis, and (3) correct several inconsistencies in the City’s present delay/deferral system for Street Improvements. At the February 26, 2008 City Council meeting the Council discussed briefly draft Ordinances 212 and 213 and then asked staff to schedule a study session to more thoroughly review the issue as a whole. At the March 19, 2008 study session the City Council received a history of the Street Improvement Impact Fee and provided comment on draft Ordinance 212 and 213. The City Attorney made revisions to the Ordinances per the direction of the Council and the Ordinances were subsequently introduced at the April 22, 2008 City Council meeting with direction to staff to bring them back for adoption at the May 13, 2008 meeting.

It is prepared in compliance with the requirements of Section 66001 et seq. of the Government Code. SECTION 2 GOVERNMENT CODE REQUIREMENTS In any action establishing, increasing, or imposing a fee as a condition of approval of a development project by a local agency on or after January 1, 1989, the local agency shall do all of the following: (1) Identify the purpose of the fee. (2) Identify the use to which the fee is to be put. (3) Determine how there is a reasonable relationship between the fee's use and the type of development project on which the fee is imposed. (4) Determine how there is a reasonable relationship between the need for the public facility and the type of development project on which the fee is imposed. SECTION 3- FEE STUDY The City’s Development Code Sections 19.10.090 (commercial), 19.09.060 (multi-family), 19.12.090 (service commercial and industrial), 19.14.060 (open space) and 19.15.050 (public) presently require the construction of Street Improvements when there is an increase or change in vehicular traffic resulting from these types of development (described in further detail below). These Street Improvements may include curbs, gutters and sidewalks, concrete driveway approaches, drainage structures, asphalt paving, connecting pavement and other street related improvements (“Street Improvements”). Further, presently, unless otherwise required to pay an in lieu fee pursuant to amendments that are being processed concurrently with this fee study, Street Improvements for these uses must to be constructed adjacent to the property line along the street frontage, prior to approval of a Certificate of Occupancy of the structure. 1 Presently, new single-family residential development or new development of second units in the City (see Development Code sections 19.07.060, 19.08.060 and 19.14.060) must either construct Street Improvements or pay an in lieu fee (as previously established by Ordinance No. 200 and its related Street Improvement Fee Study). In connection with these developments, currently the City does not require the payment of an in lieu fee if new residential construction occurs on property that has existing Street Improvements, despite the fact that this new development utilizes Street Improvements citywide and impact pedestrian and drainage improvements outside of the immediate area of the development. To address concerns as detailed in the January 22nd report presented by the City Engineer, expansion of the existing Local Street Improvement Impact Fee from single family residential uses to all uses (i.e., multifamily, commercial, industrial, open space and public) was recommended as an alternative that the City may impose on these use in lieu of having the applicant or owner construct Street Improvements. The standard policy is to have these improvements constructed by the developer unless it is deemed appropriate by the City Engineer to pay this fee. Further, the City Council requested that the City Engineer review the possibility of amending the Development Code to require the payment of in lieu Street Improvement fees in circumstances where new development is proposed on a site that has existing street improvements constructed with the fees collected under this ordinance or other public funds as reimbursed. (1) PURPOSE OF THE FEE The sole purpose of the Citywide Street Improvement Impact Fee (sometimes referred to herein as the “Fee”) is for the construction of curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and connecting pavement in the City of Twentynine Palms. The Fee may be imposed by the City, in lieu of requiring the owner or applicant to construct such improvements, on certain development that requires the construction of street improvements under the Development Code (i.e. certain development that results in an increase or change in vehicular traffic). The developments on which this Fee may be imposed include the following: • All new development with the exclusion of single-family residential development (the fee for single family residential is already established in Section 19.85.040 of the Development Code.) Further, as directed by the City Council, provisions in Development Code shall be amended to impose a fee on the following: 2 • All new development (including single family residential development) shall pay either the Local Street Improvement Fee or Citywide Street Improvement Fee (as appropriate) in circumstances where new development is proposed on a site that has existing Street Improvements constructed with funds from the Local Street Improvement Fee, Citywide Street Improvement Fee or other public funds. The Citywide Street Improvement Impact Fee will be charged at $75 per linear foot of street frontage of the development, subject to adjustment for inflation as proposed in the draft ordinance. See Appendix for a detail improvement cost estimate. As further described below, the amount of the fee is a reasonable estimate of current construction cost for curb, gutter, sidewalk and connecting payment costs in 2007 dollars. The amount of the fee is based upon the length of the street frontage of the property to be developed, normally property line to property line. In the case where only a portion of the property is proposed for development, where the City Engineer approves a phasing plan, the street frontage associated with the phase will be the limitation to the street frontage fee and the remaining frontage shall be charged a fee at the time development is sought or the entire frontage will be constructed with fees credited. These improvements which are typically required to be conditions of development, is roughly proportional to the type of development on which the Citywide Street Improvement Fee is imposed and for the use to which the fee is put because non-residential development creates a need for drainage control and pedestrian improvements and increases both non-residential and residential pedestrian traffic in the City by virtue of increasing the employment base of the City as well increasing as the residential base of the City who work at these new developments; further, nonresidential development increases traffic and circulation in areas that are outside of the immediate vicinity of the proposed development. The street improvement impact fee also applies to all developments fronting streets funded and constructed by the City with Street Improvement Impact fee funds or other public funds secured by the City. In the event that the street improvements are constructed prior to the development of the adjacent property, upon development of the property the developer is required to pay the fee. (2) USE TO WHICH THE FEE IS TO BE PUT The use of the Fee will be restricted exclusively for the construction of curbs, gutters, sidewalks and connecting pavement on streets fronting non-residentially zoned property in the City of Twentynine Palms or in residential areas because the nonresidential development impacts the residential areas of the City (for instance, Citywide Street Improvement Fees may be used on residential streets because commercial uses increase residential traffic for use of these developments, increase the employment base of the City, the 3 need for drainage control and increase pedestrian traffic in areas outside the immediate vicinity of the development and lead to employees living in the City). In order to use the collected funds efficiently and effectively, the Fee would not necessarily or immediately, be used to construct improvements on the same street from where the funds are received. Rather, the Fees deposited into the Citywide Street Improvement Fund may be used for non-single family residential street improvements or on residential streets because the nonresidential development impacts the residential areas of the City in accordance with the City of Twentynine Palms General Plan Circulation Element and Council determinations on where community needs require use of such funds. Therefore, Fees would be used on streets fronting properties that are deemed high priority based upon current maintenance costs related to drainage, vehicular and pedestrian traffic, and other cost effectiveness and safety criteria. Under this Fee program, the funds would be used efficiently by accruing sufficient funds to construct an entire street segments. Constructing streets in this manner will result in cost savings through the design, inspection, and construction phases. Therefore, there will be the realization of certain economies of scale for constructing sidewalk, gutter, curb and connecting pavement improvements to entire segments, rather than having such improvements be constructed in a piecemeal and disorganized approach. Likewise, imposing Street Improvements Fees on new development that has existing Street Improvements (either under the existing Local Street Improvement Fee or the proposed Citywide Street Improvement Fee) would be used in the same manner. (3) REASONABLE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE FEE’S USE AND THE TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT PROJECT ON WHICH THE FEE IS IMPOSED There is a reasonable relationship between the use of fee for the construction of curbs, gutters, sidewalks and connecting pavement on local streets fronting non- single family residentially zoned properties, residential properties and already subdivided properties and the type of developments it is imposed on because these non-single family residential uses create the need for storm water drainage control, will cause increased or changed vehicular and pedestrian traffic that utilizes these street and sidewalk improvements (curb, gutter and sidewalks) in both non-single family residential areas and residential areas citywide. For instance, non-residential development, particularly commercial development, increases pedestrian traffic due to residents utilizing Street Improvements to reach these new non-residential uses and additionally, create the need for storm drainage control that curbs and gutters provide. Further, non-residential development increases the demand for housing and increases the City’s employment base. Finally, such development utilizes other circulation routes in the city aside from those in the immediate vicinity of the development. Standards for street improvements have been adopted by the City Council as indicated by the adopted the Circulation Element of the General Plan. Pursuant to existing Development Code requirements these standard street improvements are 4 constructed with all new subdivisions of residential tract housing and provide benefits to each use and provide for the health, safety, and general welfare of its residents. The Fees required are based upon the current, actual cost of these improvements along the frontage of the individual property as depicted in Appendix. With respect to new development at locations where Street Improvements already exist, and constructed with the City Street Improvement Impact Fee or with other public funds, there is a reasonable relationship between the fee’s use and the type of development project on which the fee is imposed because new development increases the use of City streets on a citywide basis, even if the immediate Street Improvements are already in place. Thus, new development benefits from Street Improvement construction throughout the City. (4) REASONABLE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE NEED FOR THE PUBLIC FACILITY AND THE TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT PROJECT ON WHICH THE FEE IS IMPOSED There is a reasonable relationship between the need for curbs, gutters, sidewalks and connecting pavement on streets fronting non-single family residentially zoned and residential properties and the type of development it is imposed on because those uses generate pedestrian traffic that will utilize sidewalks and a need for storm drainage control provided by curbs and gutters which is needed – all throughout the City. Street Improvements may be constructed with fees collected from these developments. In order to efficiently and effectively manage this program, the funds collected will not necessarily be used to construct street improvements on the same street from where the funds are received. Rather, Fees deposited into the Citywide Street Improvement Fund to be used for non- single family residential Street Improvements and certain residential Street Improvements in accordance with the City of Twentynine Palms General Plan Circulation Element. City residents utilize the entire City-wide street improvement system. It is therefore reasonable for Fees to be used on a citywide basis in conformity with the City General Plan. There is also a reasonable relationship between the need for Street Improvements citywide and new development where Street Improvements already exist on-site. New development increases the use of sidewalks and a need for storm drainage control provided by curbs and gutters citywide at a rate that may exceed the initial development that constructed the adjacent street improvements and this fee would be used for the improvement of these public facilities. 5 APPENDIX 6 CITYWIDE STREET IMPROVEMENT IMPACT FEE IMPROVEMENT COST ESTIMATE (PER LINEAR FOOT OF FRONTAGE) Item Description Quantity Unit Unit Cost* Total 8” curb and gutter 1.0 LF 30.00 $30.00 Sidewalk 6.0 SF 4.00 $24.00 Asphalt pavement 6.5 SF 2.00 $13.00 Design, survey, permit etc. 1.0 LS 8.00 $8.00 Total per linear foot: $75.00 * Source: Current City’s Engineer’s Estimate Data Sheet Note: The Citywide Street Improvement Impact Fee will be charged at $75 per linear foot of street frontage of the development. Examples: (1) The fee would be calculated at $75 per linear foot of street frontage, the current average cost of improvements: (2) If a property has a 70’ frontage, the property owner would pay $5,250 (70’ x $75). (3) If a property has a 660’ frontage but the owner is proposing to develop 250’ of the frontage per an approved phasing plan the owner would pay $18,750 (250’ x $75 = $18,750). The remaining frontage would be improved along with the frontage of the first phase, a credit would be given for the fees paid for the first phase equal to the fees collected or charged at the time development occurs. The Fee applies to the following developments: • All uses with an increase or change in traffic with the exception of single-family residential property (which are already subject to the Local Street Improvement Fee). 7 STAFF REPORT TO: City Council via City Manager FROM: Community Services Director DATE: May 13, 2008 SUBJECT: Renewal of Delegate Agency Agreement RECOMMENDATION: Attachments The City Council approve the Delegate Agency Agreement between the City of Twentynine palms and City-County Cooperation the County of San Bernardino.

Planned Development Districts Planned development districts (PD), also known as Planned Unit Developments, are a land use tool which provide flexibility in design and building placement, promote attractive and efficient environments that may incorporate a variety of uses and dwelling types, provide for economy of services and facilities and preserve natural resources. For consistency purposes, the following discussion as well as the Ordinance refers to these as Planned Development Districts or PDs. The Planning Commissioners learned about PDs at the Planners Institute. The Commissioners were interested in the PD as a toll to achieve higher quality development and to promote community goals such as the open space preservation and cluster development. The Planning Commission formed a PD subcommittee comprised of Commissioners Rinkes and Mintz to study the concept of planned development districts, and to determine their suitability as a planning tool for the City of Twentynine Palms. This subcommittee reviewed a number of Review of Staff Report: ________ ________ ________ _______ City Manager City Attorney City Engineer Department Head sample ordinances and directed staff to prepare a draft PD Ordinance, based upon elements of the Ordinances they reviewed. The Planning Commission then conducted a study session on PDs, and directed staff to schedule a public hearing on the draft ordinance. The purpose of the Draft PD Ordinance is to establish guidelines and procedures for the establishment of Planed Development Districts. It is the intent of this district to foster the highest quality of development and insure compliance with the general plan and development code, while allowing certain desirable departures from the strict provisions of the zoning classifications. In certain instances, the objectives of the general plan and development code may be best achieved by the development of parcels of land in a coordinated and comprehensive fashion so as to take advantage of the superior environment which can result from large scale community planning and development. The purposes of the PD district are to: o Provide for design flexibility in single-family, multi-family, commercial, professional, industrial and mixed-use developments. o Foster sustainable development and conserve natural features and open space, while facilitating aesthetic and compatible land use patterns. o Stimulate a more desirable living and working environment than would be permitted by the strict application of zoning regulations on a conventional individual-use or lot-by-lot method. o Encourage innovative and creative approaches to land use and development. o Provide the means to reduce development costs through the promotion of improved and integrated design and land planning techniques. o Cluster development to reduce infrastructure costs and environmental impacts. As currently proposed in the draft ordinance, the review and approval process for the PD entitlement would require a higher level of public review than that typically required for approval of tentative tract maps. Tentative Tract Maps require one public hearing at the Planning Commission and one non-hearing review of a Final Map by the City Council. In contrast, the PD review and approval process would require two noticed public hearings, with review authority by the Planning Commission and Approval Authority by the City Council. A third review of Final Development Plans by the Planning Commission would be required prior to City Council review of the Final Map. As proposed in the draft ordinance, the PD procedure requires a higher level of public review as well as review by both the Planning Commission and City Council. Adoption of the PD Ordinance would not permit increases to the overall density of a project. As drafted, the PD ordinance would facilitate the following types of sample projects: • Master planned communities providing a mix of housing types without increased density; • Cluster residential development with open space, recreation and trails amenities; • Commercial centers and business parks with higher levels of amenities; • Mixed use developments. California Environmental Quality Act The proposed zoning code amendments are not defined as a project under CEQA, and are therefore exempt from further environmental review under state law. Approval Authority The City Council is the Approval Authority for this Zoning Ordinance Amendment. ALTERNATIVES: Amend or modify the Development Code to meet the City Council’s objectives. FISCAL IMPACT: None.

The purpose of this Chapter is to establish guidelines and procedures for the establishment of Planed Development Districts (PD). It is the intent of this district to foster the highest quality of development and insure compliance with the general plan and development code, while allowing certain desirable departures from the strict provisions of the zoning classifications. In certain instances, the objectives of the general plan and development code are best achieved by the development of parcels of land in a coordinated and comprehensive fashion so as to take advantage of the superior environment which can result from large scale community planning and development. The purposes of the PD district are to: o Provide for design flexibility in single-family, multi-family, commercial, professional, industrial and mixed-use developments. o Foster sustainable development. o Stimulate a more desirable living and working environment than would be permitted by the strict application of zoning regulations on a conventional individual-use or lot-by-lot method. o Encourage innovative and creative approaches to land use and development. o Provide the means to reduce development costs through the promotion of improved and integrated design and land planning techniques. o Conserve natural features and open space, while facilitating aesthetic and compatible land use patterns. o Implement general and specific plans which require a planned development approach. o Cluster development to reduce infrastructure costs and environmental impacts. A planned development as used in this section means an integrated development project in which the land and structures are planned and developed as a whole in a single development operation or a series of operations in accordance with a detailed, comprehensive plan encompassing such elements as the location of structures, the circulation pattern, parking facilities, open space, recreation facilities and utilities, together with a program for provision, operation and maintenance of all areas, improvements, facilities and services provided for the common use of the persons occupying or utilizing the property. • There is no minimum district size. All projects 20 acres or larger shall be subject to this ordinance. 19.025.020Uses Permitted. Planned residential development districts may include a multiplicity of housing types; provided, the density does not exceed the general plan requirements. Housing density may be increased in conformance with state and local regulations if the district assists the city in meeting its housing goals as set forth in the housing element of the general plan. The form and type of development on the PD site boundary shall be compatible with the existing or potential development of the surrounding neighborhoods. o A specific commercial use for property adjacent to an existing commercial zone may be approved as a PD when such property is to be used for additional off- street parking or an extension of buildings proposed in the existing commercial zone or in combination with residential uses. Where this is permitted, the plan for the total property shall be submitted and the applicant shall clearly detail, by engineering and architectural specifications and drawings, the manner in which the subject area is to be developed and the means that will be employed to protect the abutting property and the health, safety, welfare and privacy enjoyed thereon. o In industrial zones, a property which combines industrial and service commercial uses may be approved as a PD subject to the performance standards of the underlying zone to protect the health, safety and welfare of the area. Such PD’s shall be permitted on a Expressway, Arterial or Collector roadways as indicated on the general plan street plan or when these uses are integrated into an overall development plan. In both instances the proposed use shall not adversely affect the uses of properties in adjoining areas. o Additional uses may be permitted in the PD including resorts, hotels, churches, nursery and day schools for pre-school children, when these uses are integrated into an overall development plan and when in both instances the proposed use would not adversely affect the uses of property in adjoining areas. 19.25.030 Property Development Standards. The Planning Commission and the City Council may establish a full range of development standards appropriate to the orderly development of the site which shall include the following: Building heights shall conform to the requirements of the underlying zoning district. Structures which exceed permitted heights shall be subject to the requirements of Chapter 19.34 (Variances). Building heights within one hundred feet of the property line should be compatible with adjacent off-site development. Parking and loading requirements shall be subject to the requirements of Chapter 19.82. The planning commission and the city council may modify such requirements based upon the submittal of a specific parking plan. Front yard setbacks compatible with the existing or potential development adjacent and/or opposite from existing development shall be required to provide for an orderly and uniform transition along the streetscape to preserve, protect and enhance the properties adjacent to the proposed PD. Nonperipheral areas of the PD shall not be subject to this requirement but shall be determined by approval of the preliminary development plan by the planning commission. Minimum lot frontage not less than that of existing lots adjacent and/or opposite from existing developments shall be required to provide for an orderly and uniform transition along the streetscape to preserve, protect and enhance the properties adjacent to a proposed PD. Nonperipheral areas of the PD shall not be subject to this requirement but shall be determined by approval of the preliminary development plan by the planning commission. Open space for planned districts shall be equal to or greater than the minimum open space requirement for the zone in which the planned district is located, unless otherwise approved by the planning commission and city council. Recreational areas, drainage facilities and other man- made structures may be considered to meet a part of the open space requirements. Protection of natural landscape features such as watercourses, hillsides, sensitive land area, existing vegetation, wildlife, unique topographical features, and views shall be encouraged. Open spaces shall be integrated into the overall design of the project. Open space for commercial, industrial and mixed uses shall be determined by the development plan approved by the planning commission and city council. 19.25.040 Concurrent processing The district shall be processed concurrently with all related entitlements. 19.25.050 Procedures Preliminary Development Plan. o The applicant shall submit a preliminary development plan package to the department of community development for a preliminary approval by the planning commission and city council. The minimum following documents shall be required for review: site plan including recreation facilities and amenities, landscape plan, architectural plans with building elevations, material sample board, sign plan, preliminary grading plan, and related environmental documents. A map and/or site plan of the subject property shall conform to the requirements of the preliminary application checklist provided by the department of community development. Planned development districts shall be consecutively numbered and recorded on the General Plan Land Use Map. Final Development Plan- Approval by Planning Commission. o The applicant shall submit a final development plan for approval by the planning commission. The final plan shall be substantially in conformance with the approved preliminary plan and shall incorporate all modifications and conditions to the preliminary development plan made by the commission and city council, and shall be submitted with the final development plan checklist provided by the department of community development. Should the final plan propose modifications which are not in substantial conformance with the approved preliminary plan, such Plan shall be processed as a new application. The final development plan may be processed concurrently with the preliminary development plan. o Required Findings Approval of the district will not have the effect of preventing the orderly subdivision of land in the vicinity. The proposed project cannot be accomplished through standard zoning districts and subdivision processes. The proposed project accomplishes a unique and superior design. The proposed project benefits the community. Final Development Plan- Appeal of Planning Commission Action. o Approval of the final development plan by the planning commission shall be final unless appealed to the city council. The appeal procedure shall be pursuant to Chapter 19.46 of the Development Code. Modification of Final Development Plan o The final development plan may be modified by submitting a request for such modification according to the same procedure as is required in the initial review and approval process, including public hearing by the planning commission and city council in accordance with Chapter 19.25.00. Minor architectural or site changes not affecting the intent of the PD may be approved by the planning commission. No council action is necessary for minor changes except appealed decisions. Termination of Proceedings. o If, within two (2) years after the date of approval by the city council of the preliminary development plan, the final development plan, as indicated in Chapter 19.25 has not been approved by the planning commission, the procedures and actions which have taken place up to that time shall be null and void and the planned development district shall expire. Extensions of time may be allowed for good cause. Termination of Planned Development District o If the owners of the property have not commenced substantial construction within six (6) months of the date of the final development plan as approved by the planning commission or within the time set by the planning commission, the planned development district shall become null and void. For good cause the planning commission may extend the period required for commencing construction. o For any phased planned development district, cessation of development of a period of two (2) years or more shall require planning commission review and approval prior to further development of the district unless part of an approved development agreement.

Sherwood, City Clerk STAFF REPORT TO: City Council via City Manager FROM: Finance Director DATE: May 13, 2008 SUBJECT: Article 8 Claim RECOMMENDATION: The City Council authorize the filing of a Local Attachments Transportation Fund (LTF) Article 8, Local Streets and Claim Form Roads Claim in the amount of $589,771 Financial Reporting Form ORDER OF PROCEDURE: Project Listing Request Staff Report (Ron Peck Presenting) Request Public Comment Council Questions of Staff Council Discussion Motion/Second Discussion of Motion Call the Question (roll call vote) BACKGROUND: The LTF is financed by a .25% sales tax. The funds go through the state, the county, SANBAG and the MBTA before they filter down to the City. The funds are referred to as “Article 8”. The City has received $1,300,000 over the last two years, which is being invested in street projects. Annually, the City is allocated Local Transportation Funds to accomplish various street projects within the City. These funds can be used for a variety of street and road purposes, including widening streets or installing curbs, gutters and sidewalks or bikeways. This makes them more versatile than gas tax funds. The San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) administers the funds, and sends out application forms to the Cities each year. City Council approval of the application is required. Staff has prepared the application for the Council to review. ALTERNATIVES: None FISCAL IMPACT: City will receive $589,771 for street projects.

AUTHORITIES AND REFERENCES Government Code Section (within the emergency Services Act, Chapter 7, Division 1, Title 2 unless otherwise stated): • “Section 8630(a): A local emergency may be proclaimed only by the governing body of a city, county, or city and county, or by an official designated by ordinance adopted by that governing body.” • “Section 8558(c): “Local emergency” means the duly proclaimed existence of conditions of disaster or of extreme peril to the safety of persons and property within the territorial limits of a county, city and county or city caused by such conditions as air pollution, fire, flood, storm, epidemic, riot, drought, sudden and severe energy shortage, plant or animal infestation or disease, the Governor’s warning of an earthquake or volcanic prediction, or earthquake, complications resulting from the Year 2000 Problem, or other conditions, other than conditions resulting from a labor controversy, which are or are likely to be beyond the control of the services, personnel, equipment, and facilities of that political subdivision and require the combined forces of other political subdivision to combat, or with respect to regulated energy utilities, a sudden and severe energy shortage requires extraordinary measures beyond the authority vested in the California Public Utilities Commission.” • Section 8625: Gives Governor the authority to proclaim “state of emergency” when requested by local jurisdiction or when he finds local authority is inadequate to cope with emergency. • Health and Safety Code Section 101040: authority to take preventive measures during emergency. “The County Health officer may take any preventive measure that may be necessary to protect and preserve the public health from any public health hazard during any “state of war emergency,” “state of emergency,” or “local emergency,” as defined by Section 8558 of the government Code within his or her jurisdiction. “Preventative measure” means abatement, correction, removal or any other protective step that may be taken against any public health hazard that is caused by a disaster and affects the public health. • Section 101475: Gives the city public health officer authority to take preventive measures to protect public health. • Penal Code Section 409.5: Local health officer has authority to order evacuation if there is an immediate menace to public health from a disaster. 3 BACKGROUND Heat waves do not elicit the same immediate response as floods, fires, earthquakes and typical disaster scenarios. They destroy less but have claimed more lives over the past fifteen years than all other declared disaster events combined. For example the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake resulted in 63 deaths, while the 1992 Northridge earthquake was responsible for the loss of 55 lives. The catastrophic 2003 firestorms resulted in 24 deaths. The worst single heat wave event in California occurred in Southern California in 1955, when an eight-day heat wave resulted in 946 deaths. Typical summer temperatures in California contribute to the untimely demise of 20 people on average per year. The July 2006 Heat Wave in California has been the attributable cause of the death of 138 people over a 13 day period. We did not see the billions of dollars in damage as we did in the two earthquakes cited, nor did we see over three thousand homes damaged, as we did in the year 2003 firestorm; but we see approximately twice the number of human deaths due to the heat wave as we saw in each earthquake, and almost six times the fatalities from the heat wave as was observed in the devastating firestorm of year 2003. Heat waves are obviously less dramatic and more deadly. Local governments are the first responders in emergencies and request aid through a hierarchical mutual aid process under the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) when necessary. HEAT INDEX READINGS AND ASSOCIATED HEALTH RISKS The heat index (see chart on next page), also known as the apparent temperature, is how hot the heat-humidity combination makes it feel. As relative humidity increases, the air seems warmer than it actually is because the body is less able to cool itself via evaporation of perspiration. As the heat index rises, so do health risks. In general, when the heat index is 90 degrees, heat exhaustion is possible with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity. When the heat index is between 90 degrees and 105 degrees the possibility of sunstroke, heat cramps or heat exhaustion increases, especially with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity. When the heat index is above 105 degrees, sunstroke, heat cramps or heat exhaustion is likely, and heatstroke is possible with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity. When the heat index is above 130 degrees heatstroke and sunstroke are highly likely with continued exposure. Physical activity and prolonged exposure to the heat increase the risks. HEALTH INFORMATION Heat exhaustion occurs when the body is dehydrated. Symptoms include: headache, nausea, dizziness, cool and clammy skin, pale face cramps, weakness, profuse perspiration. First Aid includes moving the person to a cooler spot, providing drinking water with a small amount of salt added (one teaspoon per quart). Without intervention heat exhaustion can lead to collapse and heatstroke. 4 Heatstroke occurs when perspiration cannot occur and the body overheats. Symptoms include: headache, nausea, face flushed, hot and dry skin, no perspiration, body temperature over 101 F, chills, rapid pulse. First aid includes cooling the person immediately, moving to shade or indoors, wrapping victim in cool, wet sheet, and getting medical assistance. Without intervention heatstroke can lead to confusion, coma, and death. Source: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Extreme Danger: Heatstroke risk extremely high with continued exposure. Danger: sunstroke, heat cramps and heat exhaustion likely, heatstroke possible with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity. Extreme Caution: Sunstroke, heat cramps, and heat exhaustion possible with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity. Caution: Fatigue possible with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity. 5 PHASES OF ACTION BY CITY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AND CHECKLISTS The City of Twentynine Palms will carry out heat emergency response by following the following three phases and accompanying checklists: • Readiness • Phase 1 – Heat Alert • Phase 2 – Heat Emergency Readiness The city will monitor weather forecasts. If the National Weather Service, or other credible weather forecast agency, predicts the local heat index will reach 105 degrees for two or more consecutive days in the upcoming week the following actions should be taken: Activity Responsible Completed ( ) Department/Agency Forecast monitoring Emergency Management City to collaborate with other community agencies in the Basin and with state Emergency Management to identify any anticipated needs or problems Consider coordinated or Joint Press statements increasing awareness of the risk from heat for Emergency Management vulnerable populations and the general public to be released.

ORDER OF PROCEDURE: Attachment Proposals are available Request Staff Report (Ron Peck Presenting) for review in the City Request Public Comment Manager’s Office. Council Questions of Staff Council Discussion Motion/Second Discussion of Motion Call the Question (roll call vote) BACKGROUND: The books of the City have been audited by the same firm of certified public accountants for the last five years. Staff requested proposals for audit services from nine firms, in order to determine if the fees we are paying are comparable to the current market. Four proposals were received, of which the City Manager and Finance Director interviewed the two lowest quotes. The firms interviewed were our current auditors, Rogers, Anderson, Malody & Scott of San Bernardino, and Teaman, Ramirez & Smith of Riverside. The interviews went well, and Teaman, Ramirez & Smith are recommended. The fees are as follows: 2008 $18,500 2009 $19,500 2010 $20,500 The above fees are for the audit of the City and the Redevelopment Agency. There will be an additional charge of $3,200 for the audit of Federal grants if the expenditures exceed $500,000.

Memorandum of Motion/Second Agreement Discussion of Motion Call the Question (roll call vote) BACKGROUND: The City of Twentynine Palms is home to the headquarters of Joshua Tree National Park (“National Park”), which receives nearly 1.2 million visitors annually. The City has been working as a partner with the National Park to construct a new, modern Joint Use Visitors/Cultural Center (“Center”). The Center is envisioned to contain expanded display areas for exhibits (to include the Native American artifacts and history), a lecture facility, and an enhanced gift shop. Other potential partners in the facility include the Marine Base, Copper Mountain College, MUSD, the Historical Society, and the Twentynine Palms Band of Mission Indians. It is anticipated that the Center will have approximately $675,000 in conceptual design, architectural, and design engineering costs (“soft costs”). Construction costs for the Center will vary, depending on the final design, but are expected to be approximately $5 million. To date the City of Twentynine Palms has worked with the federal government to obtain $715,000 towards the Center through the Department Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Of the HUD monies obtained $382,974 can be spent on conceptual design and Review of Staff Report: ________ ________ ________ _______ City Manager City Attorney City Engineer Department Head architectural/engineering costs. Also obtained for the soft costs of the project is a congressional earmark to the National Park Service in the amount of $295,000. The National Park and the City are anxious to begin the conceptual design phase of the Center, which will lead to the already funded design phase that will include the final construction documents. It is anticipated that these two phases will be completed in mid to late 2009. In order to begin the work it is necessary to approve a Memorandum of Agreement (“Agreement”). The attached Agreement outlines the responsibilities of both parties (page 2) and includes a 30 day modification or cancellation policy (page 4).
