The week ahead: The Council Trifecta!

This week brings the very rare Council Trifecta, where all three city councils will be meeting in the same week. This is courtesy of the Orinda council, which usually meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month but because of vacations moved their meeting from last Tuesday to tomorrow. That puts them in the same week as Lafayette, which meets second and fourth Mondays, and Moraga, which meets second and fourth Wednesdays. Here’s your handy-dandy viewing guide:

Get your week started in Lafayette tonight at 7 p.m. in the library’s Community Hall. They’ll be getting the downtown plan’s “financial feasibility” report, which will give them an idea of how much development is realistic under the various height and density limits they’re considering for the downtown. They’ll also take another look at the city’s proposal to downsize a lot at Pleasant Hill and Deer Hill roads from multi-family housing to single-family only.

Orinda’s council will meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Orinda Library auditorium. They’ll receive a report from Jaime Rich, Lamorinda Alcohol Policy Coordinator for the Center for Human Development as well as an update on the Eden Housing senior affordable housing project.

Complete the council tour in Moraga, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School. They’ll consider a resolution that will bring some major changes to the way council meetings are run, including moving the start time from 7:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. They’ll also consider changes to how the town examines and adopts development agreements, something that will impact the Moraga Center Specific Plan.

If three council meetings just aren’t enough to satisfy your public agency cravings, the Tri-Agency Subcommitte (consisting of two members each from the Moraga Council, Orinda council and Moraga-Orinda Fire District board) will meet at 9:30 a.m. Friday at Orinda City Hall. This will be their first meeting to discuss the proposal by FAIR to dissolve MOFD or detach Orinda from it, contract with the county for fire services and used the presumed savings to improve Orinda’s infrastructure. Members of OrindaCARES, which opposes the proposal, are sure to be in attendance as well.
