RECREATION:
We currently have 78 youth enrolled in our Winter programs. Staff had a meeting with Coach Studer,
Corning High School Football coach, regarding a Flag Football program. Coach Studer seemed to be
accepting of it and will allow us to recruit (from his players) to become coaches, referees and helpers in
the Flag Football program. Levi Ross and I are working on the Flag Football program details.

The City Council approved the development of a Proposition 68 Recreation Center and City Plaza Ad-
Hoc Committee and appointed Vice Mayor Demo and Council member Hargens to the committee. Two
Recreation Commissioners and three members of the public-at-large will be appointed as well. If you are
interested in participating as a public member-at-large, please stay tuned for the application process or
email cmeeds@corning.org to express your interest. The application will be posted on the City Facebook
page once available.

The City Council approved new playground equipment to be installed at Children’s Park. The City
Council also directed staff to issue a request for proposals to resurface the tennis courts at Northside
Park to create one tennis court and four pickleball courts.

PLANNING:
Corning Crossroads submitted an application for a parcel map extension, which will be presented to the
Planning Commission in February.

The TK Ranch property sold to a new developer. The approved map will expire in September of this
year, so I sent a letter to the new property owner as a friendly reminder.

(HCD) has revised the State Income Limits for 2021, which became effective January 1, 2022. The
revision is in response to Chapter 354, Statute of 2021 (AB 1043), which adds section 50063.5 to the
Health and Safety Code and defines a new income category: acutely low-income. California’s acutely
low-income households are defined as households whose income does not exceed 15-percent of the
area median income, adjusted for family size.

There will not be a Planning Commission Meeting on January 18, 2022.
