  City Manager's Weekly Report for the Week Ending April 3rd, 2015
April 4, 2015

City of RichmondWorkshops

Mayor and Members of the City Council:

This is the weekly report for the week ending April 3rd, 2015.

1.    Meeting Notes

The next meeting of the Richmond City Council is scheduled for Tuesday, April 7th, beginning with a Closed Session at 5:30 PM, followed by the regular agenda at 6:30 PM. To see the agenda for this meeting use the following link:

2.    Ferry Service Update

On Thursday, April 2nd, the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (“WETA”) Board of Directors approved a contract amendment with Marcy Wong Donn Logan Architects to prepare the final design and engineering of the Richmond Ferry Terminal, and to provide design services during construction of the terminal.  This is a milestone made possible by the Contra Costa Transportation Authority’s commitment of Measure J funds for operation of the Richmond Ferry Service, which provides sufficient funding to operate the service for a minimum 10-year period.  This commitment has allowed WETA to expend the capital funds necessary to advance the Richmond Ferry Terminal project.  The $1.2M design contract is funded through State Proposition 1B funds.

WETA anticipates geotechnical borings will be conducted in the coming weeks to inform the final engineering effort.  They are also working concurrently to obtain Federal environmental clearance.  The service is anticipated to start in 2017.

3.    City of Richmond 2015 Community Survey

One of the best ways to improve Richmond’s services is to ask the people that live here what they think. With this in mind, the City of Richmond is pleased to announce the 2015 Community Survey!  In the next few weeks, you may be notified that you have been selected to give input that will help the City improve the level of government services and the future of your community. Questionnaires will be sent to a random sample of 3,000 Richmond residents, asking them to comment on the community’s pressing needs and city services. 

The purpose of the survey is to help City officials evaluate services, measure resident satisfaction with current services, and to help plan for Richmond’s future. The results from the survey will be included in a final report available to all City officials, staff and residents.

If you are selected, please return the survey before the stated deadline.  If you know someone that receives one, please encourage them to fill it out and return it. Your input can help make the City of Richmond a better place to live, work and play.  Feel free to contact the City Manager’s Office with your questions at 510-620-6512.

4.    Housing Element Update and Just Cause Eviction Community Meetings

The City is currently working on two projects that can affect the future of Richmond housing policies.

The first is the update to the City’s Housing Element of its General Plan, which is required by State law.  The Housing Element provides housing policies and analysis, and sets the stage for private market development.

The second policy relates to “just cause for eviction” which generally sets forth policies regarding tenants’ rights, and on what basis a tenant may be evicted from their rental unit by a landlord.

The City of Richmond invites you to participate in workshops regarding the Housing Element Update and Just Cause for Eviction to help us craft the goals, policies and programs that will shape housing in our city.  The workshops will include:

-       Overview of the current Housing Element
-       Just Cause for Eviction policy options

The community workshops will be held on:

5.    Berkeley Global Campus at Richmond Bay: Community Co-Chair Application for Richmond Community Working Group

In April of 2014, the Chancellor of UC Berkeley (UCB) and the Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) issued a Joint Letter of Commitment to Strengthen Community Partnerships between UCB, LBNL, and the Richmond community, including the development of the Berkeley Global Campus at Richmond Bay (BGC).  The statement provides for the creation of a Community Working Group (CWG) to be co-chaired and staffed by UCB and LBNL.  The Charter adopted by the CWG provides for the nomination and selection of a Community Co-Chair, whose role is to work with the UCB and LBNL conveners to ensure that the community working group process is constructive and effective, including facilitating communication among all the partners. More information on the CWG and the Community Co-Chair application can be found on the UCB Chancellor's Partnership with Richmond website.

6.    2015 Shimada Youth Ambassador Visit

As part of the youth ambassador exchange, the Richmond-Shimada Friendship Commission hosted eight youth ambassadors and one adult chaperone from Shimada, Japan from March 21st through the 30th.  During their stay, the students visited DeAnza, Kennedy and El Cerrito High Schools, and participated in the Doves for Peace Art Project with LaVonya DeJean Middle School students. They also met with officials at City Hall and the Richmond Police Department before touring the Richmond Art Center, the Library, Shimada Park and the National Park Service. The purpose of the exchange is to give students from Shimada and Richmond an opportunity to experience American and Japanese cultures. Councilmembers, Commissioners, community members and host families reminisced over the week’s activities at the Sayonara Potluck held at the Senior Center on Friday, March 27th. Youth from Richmond will travel to Shimada, Japan in June. For more information about the Youth Ambassador Program, please call 510-620-6581.

Mayors Day


7.    Annual Mayors Day of Recognition for National and Community Service

Mayor Tom Butt and the Richmond Community Foundation invite Richmond volunteers to a celebratory luncheon in your honor.  The event is supported by Richmond’s impact volunteering program, Richmond ESC – Excellence Serving our Community, and will take place on Tuesday, April 7th, from noon to 1:30 PM, in the foyer of the Richmond Memorial Auditorium.  In addition to honoring Richmond volunteers, local AmeriCorps member-supported programs and projects will be recognized.  Please RSVP to (510) 620-5503.

Mayors Day two

Tomato plant

8.    Compost Giveaway & Great Tomato Sale

On Saturday, April 11th, the City of Richmond Environmental and Health Initiatives is hosting a Compost Giveaway free to all residents, in conjunction with Contra Costa Master Gardner’s Urban Tilth’s Great Tomato Sale. The Great Tomato Sale provides high quality, affordable tomato and vegetable plants to the community. All plants are $3, and staff will be on hand to answer your questions free of charge. The City hopes to donate compost to support the event and healthy food initiatives here in the City of Richmond.

The compost for the event is donated to the community by Republic Services.  When we recycle and compost food scraps it’s better for the environment; and recyclables and compost are processed in Richmond, which creates local jobs. Richmond is one of the only cities in the Bay Area that has a closed loop composting program whereby the food scraps are composted within the City – actually on top of the old, capped landfill. By returning compost to our residents, Republic is assisting in creating a closed loop system. Visit for more information.

9.    Richmond Arts and Culture Commission Updates

The Contra Costa Marketplace Magazine’s April issue features an article entitled Thriving Artforms for the People, from the City about Richmond’s thriving Neighborhood Public Art mini-grant program:

The popular Neighborhood Public Art program, which began in 1997, is funded by the City’s General Fund, and overseen by the Richmond Arts and Culture Commission and the Arts and Culture Manager. Applications open each August, and applicants present their proposals before the commission in September and October. Finalists are selected in October. The average number of grantees per year is ten.

The purpose of this community art granting program, which disburses $60,000 each year, is to build community through the arts, stimulate arts and cultural activity at the neighborhood level, and empower people to discover their own creativity. Together, participants learn new artistic skills, work with professional artists, and make art for their community.

The Richmond Arts and Culture Commission received an initial grant in 1997 from the California Arts Council to promote the visibility and access of the arts in Richmond. The grant was matched by the City, and the commission set up a mini-grant program with grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. An art commissioner is assigned to each grantee for the duration of their project. Over the years the Neighborhood Public Art grants have resulted in murals, plays, music programs, mosaic trashcans, art instruction for seniors, a sculpture garden, and more.

If you need more information, please contact Michele Seville, Arts and Culture Manager,, 510-620-6952.

12. Iron Triangle Theater of East Bay Center for the Performing Arts Presents the Premiere of FREEDOM CHANGE

The Iron Triangle Theater at the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts will be performing FREEDOM CHANGE.  This theater production was constructed using a series of devised theater techniques with contributions from a large group of local teens, young adults and emerging resident theater artists. This piece is a compilation of their work and strives to represent the complexities of lived injustice while balancing the Center's mission of supporting artistic training and re-imagining our world. Following each performance, there will be a facilitated dialogue with actors, creators and the public around our collective response to the questions posed by the work — especially as it relates to our community here in Richmond and the surrounding neighborhoods. This piece includes mature themes.

FREEDOM CHANGE is part of the Iron Voices Project, an ongoing public dialogue about race and opportunity with a special focus on young men and boys of color. The project was initiated and is led by the Center and involves Young Artist Diploma students, community partners, local youth, young adults and professional theater, music, film, and dance artists. FREEDOM CHANGE was developed with support from The California Endowment and the City of Richmond Neighborhood Public Art Program.

Performances will be on Friday, April 3rd; and Saturday, April 4th.  All performances start at 8:00 PM.  Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for seniors (65+), and students under 18 are free. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. There is limited seating, so we encourage you to RSVP at

14. Leaders from Northern California to Convene in Richmond to Discuss Challenges and Solutions to the Diversity and Gender Gaps in STEM Careers

Lack of diversity in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields received national attention recently when the largest technology companies in the country released their diversity numbers. Across the board, African Americans and Latinos made up barely 2% of the workforce. And although women make up more than 50% of college graduates, they represent less than 30% of those working in STEM fields.

This year’s Northern California Summit on Children and Youth, an event that is organized annually by the Richmond Community Foundation, will focus on the complex topic of Bridging the STEM Diversity Gap – Building the Next Generation Workforce.”  The summit will be held on April 30th in the Richmond Auditorium, and will convene more than 200 educators, community organizations, community leaders, elected officials, businesses, and area foundations to share innovative approaches, research driven models, and best practices for building STEM career pathways for our children and youth.  The goal of the summit is to demonstrate successful STEM pathways and replicate and scale them up throughout the Bay Area.

The summit will open at 9:00 AM with a welcome by Vice Mayor Jael Myrick, who is launching a local initiative to support President Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper Initiative”. The Opening Plenary Panel features Dr. Helen Benjamin, Chancellor for the Contra Costa Community College District, Darien Louie, Executive Director of the East Bay Economic Development Alliance, and Miriam Karpilow, University Programs Manager for Pandora, Inc.  Sunne McPeak, President and CEO of the California Emerging Technology Fund, will moderate the panel.

Erik Moore, Founder and Managing Director for Base Ventures, a company investing in seed-stage technology companies, will be the keynote speaker, and will describe “The Long Walk from Richmond to Silicon Valley.”

The concluding session for the Summit, “I Bridged the Gap,” features a panel of STEM field leaders who will describe their experiences overcoming challenges to pursue careers in STEM-related fields.

Experts from a variety of STEM fields will also present workshops that focus on challenges, learnings and opportunities in STEM education and STEM-related fields, and demonstrate successful programs in practice.  An “Interactive Resource Village” will feature information and interactive exhibits from organizations including Chabot Space and Science Center, Contra Costa College, Community Resources for Science, Richmond Solar and Nerd Crossing.

16. Officer Bradley A. Moody Memorial Underpass Project

The Bradley A. Moody Memorial Underpass Project involves the construction of a roadway underpass on Marina Bay Parkway between Meeker Avenue and Regatta Boulevard, and is intended to resolve long-standing access limitations to the Marina Bay area caused by frequent train crossings.  In early September 2013, Marina Bay Parkway was closed to traffic.  This closure is planned to remain in place through June 2015. 

The week of March 30th, crews continued the installation of formwork for the raised sidewalks and placed the first of four concrete pours for the transition walls (shorter walls for the areas between the sidewalk retaining walls and roadway curbs).  Pump station mechanical work was substantially completion, and work continued to establish roadway subgrade south of the bridge.  For the week of April 6th, sidewalk formwork and rebar will continue, the second of four concrete pours for the transition walls is scheduled, and work to establish roadway subgrade south of the bridge will continue.
