Special meetings
The regular November Planning Commission meeting was canceled due to the holiday, and Planning Commissioners will instead convene at a Special Planning Commission meeting on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held as a hybrid event. The meeting agenda and packet are available on the City of Winters website at https://tinyurl.com/4y2xmzvx.

The Special Planning Commission meeting is a continuation of the Grand Prince Odeum Director’s Determination Appeal, which was initially heard during the Sept. 27 Planning Commission meeting. Commissioners requested City staff to return with additional information.

City Manager Kathleen Salguero Trepa announced in her Friday, Nov. 11 update that the Winters City Council will meet at a Special City Council meeting on Dec. 13 to seat the new Council and will cancel the Dec. 20 Council meeting.

AT&T work
Trepa said AT&T provided a schedule to the city regarding work along Newt’s Expressway. She noted the crews will need several weeks to pull wires and remove the poles. Work is scheduled to begin on Dec. 5. Trepa said Winters residents who are Wave/Astound customers on that block should make alternative service selections soon.

New stop sign, driver safety
Trepa said the City has received concerns that some yards have tall shrubs, hedges and overgrown trees that are blocking driver’s views at corners, making it difficult to see oncoming vehicles when pulling onto a street. “We will begin reaching out to some property owners as we follow up on-site distance concerns,” Trepa said.

The City recently installed a new stop sign at Haven and Main Streets. Trepa reminded drivers to stop before turning onto Main Street and asked them to “watch for families and children entering the (City) park area.”

Tractor cutouts
The Winters District Chamber of Commerce tractor and tree decorating contest has returned. Trepa encouraged residents to “help make Winters the merriest place to be this season.” The community can purchase a tractor or trailer cut out from the Chamber by calling 530-795-2329.
