  1. MANAGER’S REPORT FOR AGENDA CHANGES
  2. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION ON NON-AGENDA ITEMS. (Not to exceed a total of 20 minutes nor more than 5 minutes for any individual).
  3. CONSENT AGENDA

The Consent Agenda includes routine items of business, which may not require separate discussion. When the Mayor calls for public comment on the Consent Agenda, you may raise your hand and the Mayor will recognize you asking which item(s) you wish to have removed from the Consent Agenda for separate discussion and action. Following the removal of any item from the Consent Agenda, the Assembly votes on the remaining items in one motion. (Ordinances for introduction generally may not be removed from the Consent Agenda.)

All items that are removed from the Consent Agenda will follow the format of: Administrative or Committee Report, Public Hearing/Participation and Assembly Action.

    1. Ordinances:
    1. Ordinance No. 98-38
    2. An Ordinance Amending the For-Hire Vehicle Code to Avoid Duplication of State Regulation, to Authorize Creation of Commercial Passenger Vehicle Control Areas and Loading Zones, and to Establish Penalties for the Violation of the Code. Presented by the Manager.

      This ordinance establishes policies for regulating commercial passenger vehicles (CPV's) over the next year. The most significant of these policies is the one which distinguishes between taxis and all other commercial vehicles. Taxis are allowed to pick up passengers anywhere they wish (subject to normal traffic laws) while other CPV's are restricted to identified loading zones while they are in the "CPV Control Area" which is essentially the downtown area. The loading zones will be identified by the manager or his designee in a regulation. These provisions are found at CBJ 20.40.052, at page 11 of the ordinance.

      The ordinance also provides several kinds of exemptions for buses and drivers operating under state regulation. These provisions are on page 8 of the ordinance.

      Page 11, line 23 establishes thath improper use of a CPV loading zone is an infraction, punishable by a limited fine. Infractions are a practical method of enforcing technical ordinances such as these.

      These changes did not require amending every section of the for-hire vehicle code, but they amended enough to warrant inclusion of the entire code in your packet, so as to show the context for the changes. The attorney took this opportunity to accomplish several housekeeping changes, such as gender-neutral language, use of the term "commercial passenger vehicle", elimination of unused language about indemnity bonds, and others. The attorney will provide a complete analysis of the ordinance when it is before the Assembly for adoption.

      This ordinance implements policies presented to the Committee of the Whole on Monday, November 23rd, and is necessary for Certificates of Public Convenience & Necessity applications for 1999.

      I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

    3. Ordinance No. 98-39
    4. An Ordinance Amending the Land Use Code Table of Permissible Uses to Allow Drive-in Restaurants in an Industrial Zone, Seafood Processing in Waterfront Zones, and Marine Commercial Facilities in Rural Reserve and Waterfront Zones. Presented by the Manager.

      This ordinance amends the Land Use Code Table of Permissible Uses to allow drive-in restaurants in the industrial zone and to add two new water-related uses to the table.

      Seafood processing will be allowed in the waterfront commercial and waterfront industrial zones. Marine commercial facilities will be allowed in waterfront commercial and rural reserve zones. Marine commercial facilities (mixed use developments, which may include such activities as fisheries support, freight, and passenger traffic) have recently been proposed by Goldbelt for possible establishment on West Douglas or Cascade Point.

      The ordinance also addresses the allowable location of drive-in restaurants. The code presently allows all restaurants, except those with drive-in service, in the industrial zone. Drive-in service seems appropriate in an industrial location. Modern land use codes tend to allow eating establishments in most zoning districts including industrial zones.

      The proposed amendments contained in this ordinance are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.

      The Planning Commission reviewed the proposed amendments at its meeting of November 8, 1998, and recommends that the Assembly approve this ordinance.

      I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

    5. Ordinance No. 98-40
    6. An Ordinance Amending the Land Use Code Table of Permissible Uses to Allow Scrap Material Salvage Yards, Junkyards, Automobile Graveyards and Other Such Uses in the WI, Waterfront Industrial Zone. Presented by the Manager.

      This ordinance amends the Land Use Code, Table of Permissible Uses to allow scrap material salvage yards, junkyards, and automobile graveyards and other such uses in the WI, waterfront industrial zone. The table currently allows these activities with an allowable use permit in the I, industrial zone. The waterfront industrial district is intended for industrial and port uses, which need or substantially benefit from a shoreline location. In Juneau, these operations may be dependent upon a deep-water port location to allow shipment of the product.

      The Community Development Department has scheduled this ordinance for review at its December 8th meeting.

      I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

    7. Ordinance No. 98-41

An Ordinance Establishing Sales Tax Exemptions for Certain Shopping Mall Membership Dues and Certain Transactions by Trusts Engaged in Related Party Commercial Rentals. Presented by the Manager.

This ordinance establishes two sales tax exemptions.

  1. an exemption for dues paid by merchants to a shopping mall association, provided that the dues are used only to promote the mall, and not for other purposes such as rent or mall maintenance.
  2. an exemption for "related party leasing" by property owners who rent to themselves when one party to the lease is a trust composed of the same natural persons who are the other party to the lease (a "natural person" is a human being, as opposed to a "legal person" such as a corporation).
  3. I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

5. Ordinance No. 98-17 (U)

An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $1,120,909 for the Following Capital Projects: Airport Revolving Capital Reserve Account, Airport Terminal Wall and Ceiling Rehabilitation, East End General Aviation Area Development, Snow Removal Equipment Building Design, Installation of Security Fencing, Environmental for Float Pond And RTR Area and East General Aviation and Air Carrier Ramp Improvements Design. Such Funds Provided by Passenger Facility Charges. Presented by the Manager.

This ordinance appropriates Passenger Facility Charges (PFC) imposed by the Juneau International Airport under the current PFC application which is effective from July 1, 1998 to June 30, 2000. These charges will be used to fund capital projects, which were approved in the current application.

A portion of this money is reimbursement for previous expenditures, including $251,000 of general sales tax funds, and $133,000 of general airport revenues. This appropriation reinvests those funds into other airport projects.

The Assembly Finance Committee will review the project list at its December 9th meeting; the Airport Board also meets on that date, and will be represented at the Finance Committee.

The following projects will be funded:

    1. Airport Revolving Capital Reserve Account
    2. Total account budget: $574,660

      Local (PFC): 574,660

      This account will be used to provide contingency funds for new and on going capital projects, local match to new Federal Aviation Administration funded projects, and local match to amended FAA funded projects. This is an on going, revolving account. For example, additional funds that are needed in active grant funded projects will be transferred from this reserve account into the active capital project by a Transfer Request pending receipt of grant amendments. Once the project is complete and the FAA/DOTPF grant amendments have been obtained, funds will be transferred back to the reserve. In other cases, if funds are needed on a permanent basis to fund a capital project, the funds will be transferred to the project permanently.

    3. Airport Terminal Wall and Ceiling Rehabilitation
    4. Total project cost: $106,666

      Local (PFC): 106,666

      The ceiling tiles and wall coverings in the east end of the Terminal Building have not been replaced or rehabilitated since originally installed in the early 1970's. They are badly deteriorated and beyond repair. Rehabilitation of these public areas through replacement of the ceiling tiles and wall coverings is the only and essential alternative. The project will be ongoing until complete and will be done by Airport staff.

    5. East End General Aviation Area Development
    6. Total project cost: $946,650

      FAA: 887,484

      DOTPF: 29,583

      Local (PFC): 29,583

      This project will include paving an existing taxiway to facilitate better traffic flow, ease and improve safety of aircraft taxiing, maximize aircraft parking, fill portion of airport property and generally install or improve infrastructure in this part of the airfield. It is anticipated the project will begin in 1999.

    7. Snow Removal Equipment (SRE) Building Design
    8. Total project cost: $888,086

      FAA: 656,196

      DOT/PF: 21,873

      Local (PFC): 186,667

      Local (Sales Tax): 23,350

      The Juneau Airport has approximately twenty pieces of snow removal equipment with the average unit cost in the range of $250,000 to $300,000, with the replacement cost in excess of $5.5 million. At present due to the inadequate size of the existing facility, the bulk of the equipment stays outside and is exposed to the elements all year round. The new SRE Building is essential to enable the Airport to protect its investment in this high dollar value equipment and properly maintain it year round.

    9. Installation of Security Fencing
    10. Total project cost: $480,000

      FAA: 450,000

      DOTPF: 15,000

      Local (PFC): 15,000

      The northeastern end, southern boundary and southwest end of the Airport are not fenced at this time. It is essential that these areas be secured to prevent/discourage the access of wildlife to the Airport, and to enhance the Airport’s compliance with FAA regulations. This project will begin in January, 1999 and will be complete in July, 1999.

    11. Environmental for Float Pond and RTR Area
    12. Total project cost: $266,666

      FAA: 250,000

      DOTPF: 8,333

      Local (PFC): 8,333

      To assess the feasibility of putting in a road and expanding the number of float plane slips in the two western sloughs of the Basin and relocating the RTR site from its present location on the eastern end of the Airport, to the top of Pederson Hill, located west of the Airport on the extended centerline of the main runway, an environmental assessment (EA) or environmental impact statement (EIS) will need to be done as required by FAA regulations.

    13. East General Aviation and Air Carrier Ramp Improvements Design

Total project cost: $200,000

Local (PFC): 200,000

A comprehensive design of the east general aviation area of the Airport was undertaken to enable the Airport to respond quickly to its operational and infrastructure needs in that area of the airfield. This project is ongoing.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

    1. Ordinance No. 98-17 (V)

An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $2,453,000 for the Following Capital Projects: Adair Kennedy Park Improvements, Archery Range Accessible Shooting Platform, Dimond Park Improvements, Hank Harmon Rifle Range Improvements, Melvin Park Field Dugouts, Pipeline Skate Park Restrooms, Savikko Park Play Field Improvement, Treadwell Ditch Trail Improvements, Eaglecrest Snow Play/Snow Tubing Area, Eaglecrest Snowboard Terrain Park, Eaglecrest Composting Toilets, Eaglecrest Parking Lot Chip Seal Completion, Douglas Harbor Uplands and Moorage Expansion, Harbors Area Wide Restrooms Construction, Mayflower Island Causeway Upgrade, and Statter Harbor Parking/Pedestrian Access Improvements. Such Funds Provided by the Temporary 1% Sales Tax Levy to be Used for Improvements to Existing Parks and Harbors, and to Eaglecrest. Presented by the Manager.

In October, 1998, Juneau votes approved a temporary 1% Sales Tax Levy for a period of 24 months to be used to pay for a variety of improvements to existing parks and harbors, and to Eaglecrest. The levy will be effective January 1, 1999 to December 31, 2001.

This ordinance appropriates the FY99 portion of the temporary 1% Sales Tax Levy in the amount of $2,313,000 for capital projects in the following areas:

Parks and Recreation Capital Projects: $1,221,000

Eaglecrest: 97,000

Harbors: 1,135,000

Total $2,453,000

It is estimated that there will be an additional $5,450,000 in FY00 and $2,900,000 in FY01. The appropriations for these years will be integrated into the annual budget process. The total projected amount of the temporary sales tax levy, over the 24-month period, is estimated to be $10,803,000.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

6. Ordinance No. 98-17 (W)

An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $60,000 to Fully Fund Construction of A Mooring Dolphin at the Ferry Dock Wharf. Such Funds Provided By Port Fund Unreserved Fund Balance. Presented by the Manager.

This ordinance appropriates $60,000 from the Port Fund Unreserved Fund Balance to complete funding for the design and installation of a new ship mooring dolphin.

The engineer’s estimate for the mooring dolphin is $200,000. There is approximately $140,000 remaining in CIP H354-61, Cruiseship Passenger Pedestrian Improvements, so the additional $60,000 would fully fund the mooring dolphin. This mooring dolphin project is in response to a request from the Port Advisory Committee to assist in being able to berth the larger ships making port calls in Juneau.

CIP H354-61 originally included the Seawalk Plaza (south of lower tram terminal), a contribution for the Alaska Fisherman’s Memorial, and the mooring dolphin. The first two components of the CIP have been completed and the appropriation of the requested $60,000 will allow the completion of the mooring dolphin and the closure of CIP H354-61. The proposed location of the mooring dolphin is between existing Ferry Dock Wharf catwalk and the Taku Smokeries loading dock. It should be noted that the Alaska Fisherman’s Memorial Committee opposes this location and will be working with the Docks & Harbors Board to mitigate impacts on the Memorial.

At their Regular Meeting of November 19, 1998, the Docks & Harbors Board moved to request the Assembly to appropriate $60,000 from the Port Fund Unreserved Fund Balance to complete funding for the design and installation of a new ship Mooring Dolphin prior to May1, 1999. A copy of the minutes from the Board Meeting can be found in your packet.

After the ordinance is adopted, the Port Fund Unreserved Fund Balance will be $735,214.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

    1. Resolution:
    1. Resolution No. 1967

A Resolution Authorizing Participation in the Community Development Block Grant Program and Endorsing the Application of Gastineau Human Services Corporation. Presented by the Manager.

This resolution would authorize the CBJ to join with Gastineau Human Services in applying for a Community Development Block Grant through the Alaska Department of Community and Regional Affairs. The application is due to DCRA by December 11, 1998.

The application seeks a grant of $198,000 to remodel an existing building in Lemon Creek owned by Gastineau Human Services (GHS) into a 15-bed crisis respite shelter for homeless inebriates and others in need of short term shelter.

Inebriated individuals are currently sent to Bartlett Regional Hospital’s Emergency Room, Lemon Creek Correctional Facility, and the Juneau Recovery Hospital (JRU) which are not geared toward helping these individuals. The proposed facility would be a more efficient and effective alternative. The October 21, 1998 letter from GHS, included in your packet, has been amended to clarify the benefit to the Community Service Patrol, operated by the Juneau Recovery Hospital.

The CBJ Community Development Department added $3,000 to Gastineau Human Services’ original $195,000 proposal for a CDBG application total of $198,000. The additional $3,000 would be retained by the City and Borough of Juneau to cover administrative costs to insure compliance with CDBG program requirements.

At its November 23rd meeting, the Human Resources Committee reviewed the GHS proposal for funding through the DCRA program, and highly recommended endorsement of the proposal by the full Assembly.

I recommend that this resolution be adopted.

    1. Bid Award:
    1. Bid No. 99-158: two (2) 4x4 Conventional Cab Trucks

Bid No. 99-158 for two (2) 4x4 conventional cab trucks, dual rear wheels and minimum 12,000 lb GVWR was opened on November 23, 1998 with the following results:

Encumbered: $73,000 vehicles & equipment (additional monies available in the same budget)

Bidder Total bid (2 vehicles)

Evergreen Motors $62,528.00 **

Lewis Chevrolet $77,580.00

** Note: Evergreen Motors withdrew their bid due to a bid calculation error.

I recommend award of this bid to Lewis Chevrolet, with a total bid award of $77,580.00.

  1. ORDINANCES FOR PUBLIC HEARING
    1. Ordinance No. 98-37
    2. An Ordinance Amending the Official Zoning Map of the City and Borough to Change the Zoning of Approximately 5 Acres in Tract A, Golden Heights Subdivision. Presented by the Manager.

      Administrative or Staff Report

      This ordinance would provide a rezone of approximately five acres from D-5 to D-15 in Tract A, Golden Heights Subdivision near the Fred Meyer store. The rezoned portion on the east side of Tract A would then match the D-15 zoning of the remainder of Tract A. The landowner, IHH Development, Inc., requested the rezone and indicates it will facilitate overall development of multifamily housing (along with other potential uses such as a church and recreational facility) on the entire 31.28-acre tract.

      The Planning Commission recommends the rezone, with two conditions intended to ensure compatibility with single family homes in the D-5 zoning district to the east along Glacier Highway. Both conditions – a natural buffer between multifamily housing and the east lot line of Tract A, and a cap on the number of dwelling units allowed on the rezoned portion – also reflect the steepest of the east side terrain above the proposed access and the amount of multifamily housing the developer considers feasible on this portion of the entire Tract A.

    The proposed rezone furthers policies and guidelines of the 1996 CBJ Comprehensive Plan by facilitating multifamily residential development in an appropriate, central location. The rezone also conforms to the CBJ Land Management Plan, which led to the disposal of the larger portion of Tract A with the objective of fostering multifamily residential development.

    Minutes from the October 27th Planning Commission meeting are included in your packet.

    I recommend that this ordinance be adopted.

    Assembly Action

    1. Ordinance No. 98-17 (R)

    An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $55,000 to Develop a Campground Near Thane Road. Such Funds Provided by Low Income Housing Fund Unreserved Fund Balance. Presented by the Manager.

    Administrative or Staff Report

    This ordinance appropriates $55,000 from the Low Income Housing Fund unreserved fund balance for development of the Thane Road Campground. The funds will be used to provide a grant to the Southeast Alaska Guidance Association (SAGA) for development of campsites as well as the campground. A target group for the campground is persons who have traditionally camped on public and private land near downtown. This funding will allow for the installation of 25 individual camp sites. The project will be subject to a conditional use permit.

    The campground will be located on property owned by AJT Mining Properties, Inc. near the Juneau Douglas Treatment Plant. The site would be made available to the City for a price of one dollar per year for five years, with an option of an additional five year lease.

    Once developed, the campground would be operated during the summer season by St. Vincent de Paul, at no cost to the City. St. Vincent de Paul would be responsible for fee collection, maintenance and campground operation.

    The lease and the operational agreement have been prepared in draft form and are ready for execution.

    The Housing and Lands Committees have each reviewed the proposed Thane Road campground project and recommended that it be considered for approval by the Assembly.

    After this ordinance is adopted, the unreserved balance in the Low Income Housing Fund will be $668,527.

    I recommend that this ordinance be adopted.

    2. Ordinance No. 98-17 (S)

    An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $104,048 to Purchase Two New Paratransit Vans for the Care-A-Van Service. Such Funds Provided by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. Presented by the Manager.

    Administrative or Staff Report

    This ordinance appropriates a grant from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities to purchase two new paratransit vans for the Care-A-Van service. These vans will replace two vehicles presently operated by Care-A-Van. The old vans will be surplused. A copy of the grant agreement is included in your packet.

    I recommend that this ordinance be adopted.

    3. Ordinance No. 98-17 (T)

An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $500,000 for Design of Improvements to the Steamship Wharf and Marine Park. Such Funds Provided by Port Fund Unreserved Fund Balance. Presented by the Manager.

Administrative or Staff Report

This ordinance appropriates $500,000 from the Port Fund Unreserved Fund Balance for the design of improvements to the Steamship Wharf and Marine Park. The scope of the project includes design for performing a condition survey of the wharf and a geotechnical survey of the sediments immediately beneath the wharf; a geotechnical study of the soils beneath the footprint of the existing Marine Park area; designing improvements to the wharf/park area; and, funding to prepare a Harbors Comprehensive Plan. These improvements would include lowering the deck level of the Steamship Wharf to a height consistent with the Cold Storage and Ferry Dock Wharves; rehabilitating or replacing piling, wharf decking and supports; deckover the void between the existing wharf and Marine Park, and enhancing pedestrian access to and from the wharf; stabilizing the soils beneath Marine Park; redesigning Marine Park at "no net loss" of park area and including expanded and enhanced traffic flow including additional motorcoach staging and year round parking for private autos (example: 12-14 autos during the summer season and 40-60 during the non-cruiseship season); and, construction of public restrooms and other amenities as practical.

Estimated total cost for the project is between $4.5M and 6M. Funding for the project would most likely come from the issuance of revenue bonds. The debt service on the revenue bonds would be paid from the port fee revenues. The port dues rate may have to be adjusted, depending on the bond debt service.

A memorandum from the Port Director is attached to the ordinance providing additional information. The project was approved by the Harbor Board on August 27, 1998, and by the Public Works and Facilities Committee on October 7, 1998.

After the ordinance is adopted, the Port Fund Unreserved Fund Balance will be $795,000.

I recommend that this ordinance adopted.

  1. Bridges Appeal of Planning Commission Approval of a Conditional Use Permit for Development of a Two-Story Retail Commercial Building on S. Franklin Street (USE 98-00015)

At its regular meeting on October 27, 1998, the Planning Commission granted approval of a conditional use permit for development of a two-story retail commercial building. On November 16, 1998, Page Bridges appealed the Commission’s decision to the Assembly.

The Notice of Appeal and the Notice of Decision on USE 98-00015 are in your packet.

The Assembly is the appeal agency for this appeal, and its actions throughout the appeal process are governed by CBJ 01.50, the Appellate Code. The Code requires that upon receiving an appeal, the Assembly, must first decide whether to accept or reject it. The standards applicable to this decision are set out at CBJ 01.50.030(e):

(e) Action by Appeal Agency Upon Receipt of a Notice of Appeal.

(1) Within thirty days of receipt of a notice of appeal by the appeal agency, the appeal agency shall notify the appellant of the acceptance or rejection of the appeal and, if rejected, the reasons for the rejection.

(2) The notice of appeal shall be liberally construed in order to preserve the rights of the appellant. The appeal agency may reject the appeal for failure to comply with these rules or if the notice of appeal does not state grounds upon which any of the relief requested may be granted.

Page Bridges, Manuel Hernandez, the Community Development Department, and the Planning Commission have been advised that this matter is before the Assembly. In general, the Department and the Commission, have no objection to acceptance of the appeal, although they reserve the right to object to argument by the Appellant on some of the issues included in the notice of appeal.

The following procedural issues should be decided:

    1. Will the Assembly accept the appeal?
    2. Will the Assembly hear the appeal itself or assign to a hearing officer?
    3. If the Assembly hears the appeal itself, will the Mayor preside, or will he designate a member as presiding officer?

This matter is before the Assembly sitting in its quasi-judicial capacity. Accordingly, members should avoid discussing the case outside the hearing process. With respect to this issue, the Appellate Code provides as follows:

CBJ 01.50.230 IMPARTIALITY. The functions of hearing officers and those appeal agency members participating in decisions shall be conducted in an impartial manner with due regard for the rights of all parties and the facts and the law, and consistent with the orderly and prompt dispatch of proceedings. Hearing officers and appeal agency members, except to the extent required for the disposition of ex parte matters authorized by law, shall not engage in interviews concerning the appeal with, or receive evidence or argument on the appeal from, a party, directly or indirectly, except upon opportunity for all other parties to be present. Copies of all communications with a hearing officer or appeal agency member concerning the appeal shall be served upon all parties.

Because this is an appeal, I have no recommendation on whether or how the

Assembly should hear the appeal. After the Assembly has made its decisions on these issues, the Clerk will contact the parties and the presiding or hearing officer to notify them of the Assembly’s decision and to arrange for a pre-hearing conference or other proceedings.
