2.   EXTENDING RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING ON HEARST AVENUE

The City is considering extending the residential permit parking on both sides of Hearst Avenue between Acton Street and Franklin Street.

 The Residential Permit Parking Program allows for residents to petition the City to "opt-in" or "opt-out" of the Program. Complying with the requirements, residents of the block now being considered for opting into the Residential Permit Parking Program have submitted the qualifying signatures on petitions and also have at least 75% of the curb spaces occupied during the morning and mid-afternoon observation periods.  Adding blocks within the existing residential study area boundaries through evaluations by an EIR study certified on September 27, 1988, and in accordance with California Environment Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines, are categorically exempt as defined by Section 15.162(c).

For further information, call Diana N. Cardona, Assistant Public Works Engineer, (510) 665-3400

4.   PROPOSAL TO VACATE A PORTION OF CARLETON STREET

In September 1999, the Bayer Corporation applied to the City for a use permit allowing development of the old Colgate property, which is referred to as the "South Properties".  The application included a site plan, which indicated that Bayer would seek approval from the City for closure of a portion of Carleton Street.  In June 2000, the Zoning Adjustments Board subsequently approved a use permit and Bayer Corporation filed an application with the Public Works Department for vacation of a portion of Carleton Street.  On January 23, 2001, the City of Berkeley adopted Resolution No. 60,914-N.S. declaring its intention to vacate a portion of Carleton Street from its westerly terminus at the Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way extending 592.41 feet easterly. 

For further information, contact Jeffrey Egeberg, Public Works Engineering, (510) 665-3400.

5.   PROPOSAL TO INCREASE CAMP FEES

Camp fee increases are being proposed for calendar years 2001 and 2001 for Berkeley Day Camp and Echo Youth Camp to cover the higher cost of operating the programs.  Berkeley Day Camp will increase by $3.00 per five-day session for the regular program and $1.00 per five-day session for the extended programs in 2001 and 2002.  Echo Youth Camp will increase by $24.00 per five-day session in 2001 and by $10 per five-day session in 2002.  For further information, contact David Poock, Community Services, (510) 644-6520 x7.

The data for calculating the fees is based upon the cost of providing these services, and a detailed report is available for review in the City Clerk Department, 2180 Milvia Street, Berkeley.
