the pipeline, including a community “vision� 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 downtown’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 city’s Comprehensive Plan, a document that supposedly guides the city’s land decisions and that’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 city’s Climate Protection plan.

ANAGEMENT SHUFFLE — This year, City Hall’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 city’s first airport manager, Andrew Swanson, and tapping former California State University executive Claudia Keith to serve as the city’s new chief communications officer. The city is also in the final stages of hiring its first “chief sustainability officer� who will coordinate the carbon-reduction efforts of all departments. The city is also taking a closer look at managers’ 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)
