TITLE

Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to execute a quitclaim deed eliminating the slope easement at 4122 Mendez Street; and

 

Accept Categorical Exemption CE-18-240. (District 4)

 

DISCUSSION

In 1970, the owner of the property at 4122 Mendez Street, deeded to the City of Long Beach Parcel 1 (Attachment A), for slope easement purposes. In preparation for new construction, the current property owner graded Parcel 1, eliminating the need for the slope easement. As a result, the City recommends quitclaiming the slope easement to the owner of the parcel.

 

The Department of Public Works Plan Check Engineers and the Building and Safety Bureau have reviewed and approved the grading, and determined that the slope easement is no longer necessary.

 

In conformance with the California Environmental Quality Act, Categorical Exemption CE-18-240 was approved for this project (Attachment B)

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Linda T. Vu on November 19, 2018 and by Budget Analysis Officer Julissa José-Murray on November 29, 2018.

                     

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action is requested on December 18, 2018, to allow the developer to meet construction deadlines.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

A quitclaim processing fee of $3,195 was deposited in the General Fund (GF) in the Public Works Department (PW). There is no local job impact associated with this recommendation.

 

SUGGESTED ACTION

Approve recommendation.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

CRAIG A. BECK                     

DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS

PATRICK H. WEST

CITY MANAGER
