May 5: Council Considers Crime, Housing, Climate Action, Paving Contract

On Monday, May 5, starting at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers and broadcast via the City website and cable 27, the Council will hear: a Crime Report from the Police Chief; an update on Piedmont’s Housing Element of the General Plan; implementation of the City’s Climate Action Plan; a recommended pavement contract; and opposition to legislation to restrict contract services for City work.

The Crime Report shows 39% decrease in reportable crimes from the same time period the prior year.  License Plate Readers have assisted in solving 5 crimes.

The Housing Element  required by the State continues to challenge Piedmont’s limited geographical area.  The report describes Piedmont income levels, age of residents, and available sites for increased density.

Implementation of the City’s Climate Action Plan contains the City’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas production 15% by 2020 based on analyses of 32 measures compared with 2005.

Read the entire May 5 Council agenda.
