Pleasanton council to discuss top city priorities for next two years

Public workshop on city's 2017-18 work plan set for 6 p.m. Tuesday

The Pleasanton City Council is set to meet Tuesday night to work toward developing its list of top priorities to guide city officials' decision-making during the next two years.

The council's public workshop is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday inside the Remillard Conference Room at the city's Operations Services Department at 3333 Busch Road.

"The end result of this process is a biannual work plan designed to inform the community of the council's shared vision and provide the city manager with the policy direction needed to direct city resources, including preparation of the city's annual operating and capital improvement budgets," City Manager Nelson Fialho said in his staff report to the council.

Before the workshop, council members reviewed a list of potential projects and details on staff rankings, cost estimates for capital projects and recommendations from city commissions and committees, Fialho said.

In all, there were 105 potential projects within top priority categories of the Bernal property, General Plan, fiscal sustainability, affordable housing, traffic circulation, economic development, youth programs, public safety, quality of life, environmental awareness, city services and organizational success.

The council's packet, accessible to the public here, also includes the city's General Plan vision statement, a list of selected accomplishments from the 2015-16 work plan and correspondence from residents and other stakeholders advocating for items to be included in the new work plan.

Based on public input at recent city meetings, citizen turnout is also expected to occur on whether to include in the two-year work plan East Pleasanton planning and the recent Owens Drive lane reduction, among other issues.

The 2017-18 work plan is listed as a discussion-only item for Tuesday's workshop, with the final plan set to be brought back for final approval at a future council meeting.
