RED BLUFF — City Council will consider on Tuesday whether a downtown alley should be named “Historic Chinatown Alley.”
The alley is between Main Street and Rio Street and runs from Hickory Street to Pine Street.
The Helen and Joe Chew and Jessica Casas Foundation met with city staff and suggested the creation of an ordinance to allow the naming of certain public facilities, which council eventually approved.
In April, the foundation asked to name the alley. The application has been approved and it is recommended that council approve the order.
Any markers or identifiers that will be placed to signify “Chinatown Historic Alley” will be funded by the applicant, not the city.
In other cases
The council will consider changing the city’s water conservation and rationing steps.
The municipal code has five stages of water conservation and rationing, starting with voluntary compliance and moving through a 40-50% reduction stage in the event of a shortage in the event of a disaster.
The proposed changes include six stages of water conservation and rationing, beginning with mandatory measures for normal operations and voluntary water conservation measures for residents and extending to a water reduction stage. 50% in the event of a shortage in the event of a disaster.
A public hearing is required for the board to initiate this change.
Council will discuss an initiative to place on the November municipal ballot to change the city’s zoning ordinances to allow commercial cannabis businesses.
The council meets at 6:00 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of the month in the council chambers, 555 Washington St. Meetings are free and open to the public.
