City officials will vote on a Planned Development Overlay Zone for the “LDS” development at tonight’s City Council meeting. The project, dubbed “LDS” for its proximity to the Church of Latter Day Saints, is an 18-unit subdivision designed with the intention of providing more affordable homes in the Winters housing market. If approved, the project will come after months of negotiation with Crowne Communities, LCC for the PD overlay zone, which will allow for adjustments to the parcel, which is zoned for Low-Density Residential (R1). At their final meeting before the holidays, council members voted to move the item forward with modifications, including adding a sidewalk, and drains and a retaining wall to prevent flooding issues. The Council is also expected to appoint Council Member Jesse Loren as the city’s Primary Member on the Board of Directors of the Yolo County Transportation District, which administers YOLOBUS. YOLOBUS provides transportation to the cities and unincorporated communities in Yolo County, as well as transportation to the CIty of Sacramento and connections to other local and regional public transportation services. Finally the Council will hear two claims for damage to vehicles, one from a fallen tree branch and another from flood damage last fall. The staff report recommends the city reject the claims and defer to the Yolo County Risk Management Insurance Authority (YCRMIA), which handles insurance claims for local public organizations. The council will also honor Winters Police Department Chaplain Robert Duvall and K-9 Kepi, recipients of the First Responders of the Year for the Yolo/Solano/Napa Area at Kaiser Permanente’s 2019 First Responders Appreciation Ceremony last month, hear a presentation on city impact fees and review active projects. Earlier today, council members attended a groundbreaking for the Fairfield Inn, which will be constructed on Road 90 behind the Starbucks. Council meetings take place at City Hall in the Council Chambers at 6:30 on the first and third Tuesdays each month. Council agendas can be viewed on the city website, and livestreams of the meeting are available on the city’s Youtube Channel. Meetings are public and anyone can attend.  ]]>
