On Tuesday night, Brentwood City Councilwoman Karen Rarey requested a future agenda item calling for a moratorium on businesses such as coffee and bagel shops in a series of future requests.
“I’d like a future agenda item to introduce a moratorium on gas stations, coffee shops, bagel shops, discount dollar stores, storage businesses and any other business that is over-saturated in our town,” stated Rarey. “We are getting to the point where a lot of these things we don’t need anymore of in our city and so I would like to have staff put that on the agenda”.
She did not elaborate any further on that request or provide any details.
Rarey also asked for a Resolution to East Contra Costa Fire Protection District and Contra Costa County Fire supporting the consolidation as well as a Resolution to the Board of Supervisors to open and staff at least two more fire stations here in Brentwood. She also requested the city look at a landscape contract to go back to the planning commission along with working with the California League of Cities to work on limiting the Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) and Junior ADU’s within the city.
It is unclear when the future agenda items will come back for discussion.
