SUBJECT: PRESENTATION OF TRANSIT PLAN UPDATE FINAL DRAFT
RECOMMENDATION:That Council approve the Transit Plan Update Final Draft for public dissemination and to schedule a Public Hearing for October 25, 2010.
The City has completed preparation of the Transit Plan Update (Plan) and the Final Draft is being presented to Council for review and comment. Chapters 1 through 8, presented to Council on June 28, 2010, provided an overview of the City’s public transportation history and existing conditions of the program. City staff has conducted several Open Houses, Stakeholder Meetings, and surveys to support the findings presented in the Plan. City staff has provided presentations to service organizations within the community discussing public transportation and the function of the Transit Plan Update in formulating future direction for public transportation in Woodburn.
The Transit Plan Update, upon Council approval, will become a part of the City’s adopted Transportation System Plan. Upon Council approval of the Transit Plan Update Final Draft, staff will circulate the Plan to the public for review. A Public Hearing will be held on October 25, 2010 for the public to provide comment to Council regarding the Plan. Upon conclusion of the Public Hearing, Council will direct staff to adopt, amend as directed, or reject the Plan.
The Plan has been prepared with the intent to assist the City to determine what the future of public transportation should be in our community. It is the staff’s hope that the Plan will provide a solid basis for Council to determine what the vision of public transportation will be and outline specific objectives for staff to accomplish.

The Plan includes cost estimates of what projects or modifications to operations will cost to support. The Plan does look at the feasibility and cost of out-sourcing our public transportation system as well.
Staff feel that the Plan will well serve the Council as an informational and idea generating resource for Council in formulating the future of public transportation in our community.

TO: Honorable Mayor and City Council through City Administrator FROM: Jim Row, Community Services Director SUBJECT: Animal Control and Park Regulations Ordinance Amendments
These amendments add provisions to the Animal Control Ordinance and the Park Regulations Ordinance permitting dogs to be off-leash in City designated off-leash areas. This language is necessary for the City to permit dogs to be offleash in the dog park currently under construction at Centennial Park. The dog park is scheduled to open to the public in fall 2010. This change will also permit dogs to be off-leash in any future areas so designated by the City.
The 2009 Parks and Recreation Master plan recommends that the City consider the development of both fenced and unfenced off-leash areas throughout Woodburn. The Centennial Dog Park will be Woodburn first designated off-leash area. If it proves successful and public demand remains high, the development of future off-leash areas may be considered.
