LIVERMORE -- Adopting an anti-drug house ordinance, spending nearly a half-million dollars for open space in North Livermore, and authorization of a study of downtown parking are all on a busy agenda for the Livermore City Council on Monday.

Among items members will discuss include authorization of payhment of $420,000 in development credits -- comprised of fees collected from developers -- to pay for half of 81 acres of open space in Doolan Canyon for permanent open space. A matching grant would come from the Altamont Landfill Open Space Committee, paid for by landfill user fees.

Members will also address funding a downtown parking study in the amount of $225,000, to examine parking demands and possible improvements, and Police Chief Mike Harris will present a quality of life report, discussing crime prevention techniques and sharing ideas for future policies.

The meeting will be held at Council Chambers, 3575 Pacific Ave., starting at 7 p.m.
