1. Ordinances for Introduction

a. Ordinance 2006-15
An Ordinance Amending Land Use Code Relating To Zoning Maps.

Memo-Maguire to Lands Committee

Memo-Maguire to Planning Commission

Example-Outdated Zoning Map

Example-Zoning Overlay

Example-Other Maps

Link to CDD Maps

This ordinance would adopt a clear and easy-to-read set of maps to accompany the Land Use Code.

In reviewing the existing maps, four problem areas were identified:

• Outdated Zoning Maps
• Incorrect Code references to “the map”
• Outdated and unclear Zoning Overlay Maps
• Other Maps referenced in Title 49

There is a representative example of each mapping category listed above in your packet. A full set of maps will be available for review during the meeting.

Staff reviewed these map items with the Title 49 Update Committee of the Planning Commission, and the full Planning Commission at its February 28, 2006 meeting.

The Planning Commission recommended that the Assembly adopt:

1. A proposed set of reformatted and updated zoning maps for the CBJ; and

2. All proposed amendments to the Title 49 text where references to “the map” are being replaced by reference to a specific geographic area of the CBJ as shown on the new Geographic Area Map; and

3. All recommended changes to the zoning overlay maps and other maps referred to in Title 49, including reformatting these maps and deleting outdated maps.

The Lands Committee, at its March 20, 2006 meeting, recommended that the Assembly adopt these revisions to Title 49.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

b. Ordinance 2006-19
An Ordinance Amending The Fire Code Fine Schedule And Building Code Fine Schedule, And Amending The Building Code.

2006-19 - CBJ Foundation

2006-19 - Floating Foundation

2006-19 - Title 19 Spreadsheet

2006-19 - Spreadsheet Memorandum

This ordinance would amend Title 19 of the CBJ Building Code, and modify portions of the adopted International Building Codes. After a year and a half of experience working with the 2003 International Codes (previously it was the Uniform Codes), as adopted in October 2004, some issues needed to be addressed prior to the review of the 2006 Building Code adoption.

The categories of changes include: housekeeping corrections to reference numbers, insertion point, titles, etc., that have no substantive change to the code as previously adopted. Modifications to the Flood Zone regulations proposed would resolve conflicts and a duplicative process with the Flood Zone regulations in Title 49 of the Land Use Code. Changes would also address unintended consequences such as the plumbing fixture table, clarification of code as it is applied, new fee schedule to set permit fees for fire department inspections, and changes requested by staff and local contractors.

The Building Code Advisory Committee and the CBJ Fire Marshall have met over the past year to review the proposed changes and they recommend approval. The Public Works and Facility Committee recommended approval at its May 8, 2006 meeting.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

c. Ordinance 2005-11(BH)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $511,385 To The School Major Repairs Capital Improvement Project. Such Funds Provided By 1991 General Obligation School Bond Interest Income.

2005-11(BH) Economic Impact Note

This ordinance would appropriate $511,385 of unappropriated 1991 GO Bond interest income to the School Major Repairs Capital Improvement Project. The goal is to transfer these funds to the New Valley High School Project through an accompanying transfer that will be presented at the June 5, 2006 Assembly meeting.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

d. Ordinance 2005-11(BI)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $260,000 As Partial Funding For The New Valley High School Project. Such Funds Provided By 2005 General Obligation School Bond Interest Income.

2005-11(BI) Economic Impact Note

This ordinance would appropriate $265,000 of 2005 General Obligation Bond Interest Income to the New Valley High School Project.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

e. Ordinance 2005-11(BJ)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $4,570,000 And Transferring These Funds To The New Valley High School Project, Funding Provided By The Sales Tax Budget Reserve.

2005-11(BJ) Economic Impact Note

This ordinance would appropriate $4,570,000 from the Sales Tax Budget Reserve to the New Valley High School Project. These funds would supplement the budget to complete award and construction of this project.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

f. Ordinance 2006-12(A)
An Ordinance Appropriating Money Out Of The Treasury For FY07 School District Operations.

This ordinance would appropriate $3,112,600 for Juneau School District Operations. This action is the result of an increase in the State Foundation Funding Formula, which increases the State Foundation funding by $1,495,900, adds other State funding of $456,600, allows the CBJ to increase its contribution to the Juneau School District by $344,000, and uses $747,600 of fund balance.

The Assembly Finance Committee, at its meeting of May 17, 2006, recommended this action.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

2. Transfers

a. Transfer T-834
Transferring $1,070,000 To The New Valley High School Project From Various Capital Improvement Projects
.

T-834 Impact of Budget Action

This action transfers $70,000 from the Energy Efficiency Improvements fund (D374-30) to the New Valley High School Project in the Mendenhall Valley (S454-83). These funds were recommended by the Energy Advisory Committee to partially offset the capital costs to implement energy savings components on the new high school. The energy savings components were identified in a life-cycle cost/energy analysis.

Additionally, this action transfers $1,000,000 from the Riverside Drive Project (R422-02) to the New Valley High School Project. The Riverside Drive Project is required for occupancy of the new high school. Within the existing Riverside Drive Project, there are sufficient monies to complete the design documents in order to bid the project in July 2007.

The FY08 Capital Improvement Program will include the recommendation to fund Riverside Drive construction, and complete the project in concert with the completion of the New Valley High School Project.

The Public Works and Facilities Committee recommended this transfer, which was presented as a “red folder item”, at its May 22, 2006 meeting.

I recommend this transfer be approved.
