Final approvals for a new 51-home tract and a final goodbye to City Manager Fred Wilson top the agenda for Monday’s meeting of the Huntington Beach City Council when it meets on Monday.

The council will be asked to support a fistful of actions clearing the way for the construction of the Sea Dance development on the site of the former Franklin Elementary School, owned by the Westminster School District and located at 14422 Hammon Dr.

It’s an 8.75-acre site that will include a 1.30-acre public park.

Also on Monday, the council will bid farewell to Wilson, who retiring after 10 years as Surf City’s top appointed official. His last day in City Hall will be Friday, May 10.

Stepping in as interim city manager will be Assistant City Manager Lori Ann Farrell-Harrison, but her service may be limited as she has been offered the post of city manager for Costa Mesa. The council there will vote on her appointment on Tuesday, May 7.

A nationwide search for a new permanent city manager for “Surf City” will ensue with a goal of having a new one appointed by summer 2019.

The city council has a study session at 4 p.m. and a closed session at 5 p.m. The regular session is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. in the council chamber in the Civic Center at 2000 Main St. (at Yorktown Avenue).
