City Council May Reconsider Carnegie Project

City Council May Reconsider Carnegie Project

Late Tuesday afternoon, the city revised the agenda for the Tuesday, Oct. 1, City Council meeting. The revision added a closed-session item that concerns the Carnegie Library at 2264 Santa Clara Ave. and the adjoining Foster House at 1429 Oak St. 

According to the founder and team leader of Carnegie Innovation Hall, Michael Sturtz, the City Council has decided to renegotiate the lease agreement with his group. “This is creating unforeseen delays that could cause the project to be infeasible,” Sturtz said. 

Items on the closed agenda are open to public comment. Anyone who wishes to address the Council on closed-session items may do so with a three-minute limit per speaker per item. 

The Oct. 1 closed session will begin at a special time: 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave. The Council will also entertain public comment on any matter during oral communications at the meeting scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
