Special Workshop Meeting
October 22, 2016
10:00 AM Special Workshop Meeting
St. Helena Fire House
1500 Main Street, St. Helena (Use Railroad Ave. entrance)
2.            ROLL CALL
3.            Town Hall Meeting conducted by City staff to receive public input on four proposals received in response to the City’s Request for Proposals for the development of the Adams Street and City Hall properties.  Each RFP Respondent will make a 20 minute presentation and will respond to community questions.  At the conclusion of the presentations, the community is encouraged to provide feedback regarding the four proposals. 
Although this is a Town Hall style meeting intended to promote public input, the meeting has been noticed as a Special Meeting of the City Council and Planning Commission in order to allow them to attend.  However, it is the intention of staff that these decision makers will use this as an opportunity to hear the public’s input on the proposals and will not participate in the discussion.    
No decisions will be made and no formal actions will be taken at this meeting. 
CEQA Determination:  This is a workshop intended for the presentation of concepts only and CEQA review is premature at this time.
This agenda was posted at City Hall, 1480 Main Street, and at St. Helena Fire House, 1500 Main Street, St. Helena, California on October 18, 2016.
