the pipeline, including a community â€œvisionâ€? to determine the future of 27 University Ave. The downtown site, which currently hosts the MacArthur Park restaurant, is being eyed by developer John Arrillaga as a potential site for an office and theater complex. The budget allocates $250,000 in city funds for the process of planning for 27 University, and another $250,000 for separate studies evaluating downtownâ€™s potential for new development and feasible locations for new parking structures. In addition to these specific studies, planners are still plowing ahead with revisions to the cityâ€™s Comprehensive Plan, a document that supposedly guides the cityâ€™s land decisions and thatâ€™s every bit as complex as the name implies. The budget earmarks $105,000 to complete the revisions and another $50,000 to update the cityâ€™s Climate Protection plan.

ANAGEMENT SHUFFLE â€” This year, City Hallâ€™s managers will see some changes, both in personnel and in compensation. City Manager James Keene has recently added a few high-level positions to the City Hall organization, hiring the cityâ€™s first airport manager, Andrew Swanson, and tapping former California State University executive Claudia Keith to serve as the cityâ€™s new chief communications officer. The city is also in the final stages of hiring its first â€œchief sustainability officerâ€? who will coordinate the carbon-reduction efforts of all departments. The city is also taking a closer look at managersâ€™ salaries this year and adjusting them to match those in other cities. The realignment, which has been years in the making, will result in a pay bump for those whose pay currently falls below the median level in surveyed jurisdictions. (continued on page 17)
