Clover Springs on agenda March 11 City Council second hearing The Del Webb proposal for a reconfiguration of the Clover Springs project from its present development plan of mixed hous- ing to an restricted community for residents age 55 and over will come before the City Coun- cil for a second hearing Tues- day, March 11. The Council will meet at 6:30 in chambers at City Hall, 124 N. Cloverdale Blvd. The proposal was first heard by the Council Feb 28. Council approval of the change will be necessary before the project can proceed. Council members are inter- inhearing from the gen er al public regarding the change and there are concerns regard- ing the impact an adult commu- nity of some 350 homes would have on city services and the Health Care District. Del Webb Corporation is known for its Sun Cities adult communities, as well as a devel- opment in Roseville. The com- pany is also constructing a size- able project in the City of Lin- coln. In other business March 11, City Manager Bob Perrault will give the Council an overview of the present financial status of the City, including ongoing projects, as well as a report on what will be involved in chang- ing the budget procedure from one year to two years. The Cotmi11flso consider acting as lead agency for a $60,000 grant from the County to the Boys and Girls Club for outdoor recreation work. Del Webb project could impact need for school By Roberta Lyons This time last year the Clover- dale School District (CUSD) was getting ready to adopt an official planning program for the con- struction of a new elementary school. Officials were even look- ing at a possible early 1997 date for a bond issue election. All that has changed now, and the prospect of a new elementa- ry school has been put on hold according to CUSD Superinten- dent Dr. Don Sato. The need for a new school was seen because of the proposed Clover Springs housing devel- opment south of town which would have theoretically brought hundreds of new students into the CUSD system. I I II This development in its origi- nal form is now in question, and consequently so is the need for a new elementary school. The Clover Springs develop- ment has stalled after years of planning and permitting efforts by developers and the City. The property is owned by the Clover Springs Land Partners who are requesting a re-configu- ration of the development to an age-restricted project for resi- dents over 55 to be constructed by the Del Webb corporation. According to John Barella, one of the land partners, Del Webb has been the only builder willing to take on the project. He said the land could possibly go unde- Please turn to page 12 Council baCks youth program grant funding Social Advocates for Youth is seeking a $116,705 community development block grant fund- i n for Cloverdale to develop a (,mm/aault program that would serve as a delivery system for youth services here. The grant was endorsed by the City Council at the Feb. 28 meet- ing and the funding is to be con- sidered by the Human Services Commission Tuesday, March 11. The Commission will meet at 1 p.m. at 1440 Geyserville Rd. in Santa Rosa. Supporters of the grant will be encouraged to at- tend, this meeting to stress the need for the program in Clover- dale. The program as described.by City Manager Bob Perrault would utilize existing communi- ty resources with a coordinated approach through the schools, police and other local agencies. He forsees a steering commit- tee that would consist of City/ School/Businesses and Parents that would be the guiding force behind the program The City would participate with its facilities and a commu- nity police officer. He explained that all Human Services grants are now reviewed by the Human Services Com- mission before being referred to the Board of Supervisors. If the funding is approved the money will be received by Social Advocates for Youth which will pay for staffing in town. The grant will only cover one year and Perrault noted that this could be a problem in subse- quent years in continuing the work. The Steering Committee would be responsible for seeking continued funding. A School/City Subcommittee will meet March 10 to discuss the program. During the discussion, the Please turn to page 12
