Council Preview – Central Park Master Plan, Convention Center Audit and More

By Robert Haugh

Here are the items of interest for tomorrow’s Council Meeting:

  • Study session on the Central Park master plan. This is an important plan to seek input on what the community desires at Central Park, which is the city’s largest park and houses the dilapidated George F. Haines International Swim Center. A study earlier this year, said there wasn’t enough public support for a big and expensive swim center. It’ll be interesting to see a new plan for the park and swim center.
  • Contract extension with TAP International for audit services for the Santa Clara Convention Center & Tourism Improvement District (TID). TAP has uncovered some damaging things about the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce’s management and malfeasance. More info is coming.
  • Action on appeal of the Planning Commission’s action for the property at 1593 Lexington Street. This project dates back a couple years.
  • Closed session items: several union contract negotiations and several workers’ compensation cases will be reviewed.
