BRAWLEY — The City Council here will consider Tuesday finalizing the specific plan for the project known as the Brawley Gateway development.

The council also is expected to name a new mayor and mayor pro tem.

Councilwoman Toni Carrillo, who has served as mayor pro tem over the last year, is next in line to serve as mayor. If chosen for the largely ceremonial role, she would replace Mayor Wayne Johnson.

The council meeting is set for 7 p.m. in the council chambers, 225 A St.

On the issue of the Brawley Gateway project, the council will discuss and possibly finalize the specific plan that details the infrastructure such as road work that must be dealt with by the project developers.

The project calls for building residential, commercial and light industrial development east of Highway 86 in the northwest section of the city. That property is now farmland.


The property is owned and would be developed by former Brawley residents Steven and Thomas Church.

The council also will discuss zoning changes necessary to move the project forward.

In other action Tuesday, the council will consider a 5 percent salary increase for City Manager Jerry Santillan. That raise is in line with raises the council has given to all city employees.
