DATE: <br />TO: <br />FROM: <br />SUBJECT <br />BACKGROUND <br />COUNCIL AGENDA REPORT <br />December 16, 2011 <br />MEETING DATE: 1/9/12 <br />JOINT STUDY SESSION <br />MAYOR AND TOWN COUNCIL 9 <br />GREG LARSON, TOWN MANAGER <br />JOINT TOWN COUNCIL/PLANNING COMMISSION STUDY SESSION FOR <br />THE NORTH 40 SPECIFIC PLAN UPDATE. TOPICS INCLUDE PROCESS <br />UPDATE, VISION, LAND USE, AND HEIGHT. <br />The North 40 Advisory Committee (N40AC) has been meeting for the past eight months and has <br />held six meetings. In addition, there has been one joint Town Council, Planning Commission, and <br />North 40AC study session; and one joint Town Council and Planning Commission study session. <br />The Town Council has been updated each month on the Committee's progress. <br />Prior to the August 4, 2011, N40AC meeting, the overall intent was to educate the committee on <br />guiding policies for the Specific Plan such as the General Plan policies (Attachment 4), 1999 Draft <br />North 40 Specific Plan, and key documents including the Los Gatos School District paper <br />(Attachment 5), the BAE Market Study, etc. <br />During the last three meetings that occurred on August 4, September 22, and November 3, 2011, the <br />Committee made significant progress in helping staff formulate the project description parameters <br />for the North 40 Specific Plan. This step is very important since once project description parameters <br />are defined, the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) technical studies preparation can commence, <br />and RRM, the Town's Specific Plan consultants, can start outlining the chapters and contents for the <br />Specific Plan. <br />The Town's North 40 webpage contains background information regarding the N. 40 Specific <br />Plan.
