City Council preview: Art, lifeguard HQ and city height limits on agenda

The City Council meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the council chambers, 505 Forest Ave.

The council will potentially approve about $5.6 million in construction contracts for the lifeguard headquarters and public restroom project.

So far, $1 million has been used for "the design and construction management" of the project, according to a staff report.

The $5.6 million figure includes costs for other elements of the project such as architectural and engineering support during construction, special inspection, temporary facilities for the lifeguards, relocation of communication equipment, art in public places and construction management, the report said. That will leave a reserve of $1.5 million.

Also on the agenda, the council will discuss readopting the citywide 36 feet height limit in its municipal code. Mayor Pro Tem Verna Rollinger submitted the proposal, stating:

"I feel that it is important for the citywide 36-foot maximum height limit intended to be approved by the electorate be reinstated in the Municipal Code for easy accessibility and propose that the City Council direct the Planning Commission to consider a zoning ordinance and related LCP amendment to institute a citywide 36-foot height limit provision."

Lastly, the council will potentially approve city art projects by local artists Cheryl Ekstrom and Marsh Scott. For information on their art pieces, read the July 6 Coastline Pilot story.
