TITLE

Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to accept an easement deed for street widening purposes from Yogesh R. Patel and Minal T. Patel, the owners of the property at 107 Long Beach Boulevard, for the installation of public utilities; and

 

Accept Categorical Exemption CE-15-186.  (District 1)

 

DISCUSSION

Yogesh R. Patel and Minal T. Patel, owners of the property at 107 Long Beach Boulevard, plan to construct a five-story hotel with 34 guest rooms and 8 car lifts.  To accommodate the construction, it is necessary that an easement be granted to the City for street widening purposes to accommodate increases in traffic flow (Attachment A).

 

City staff conducted a review of affected agencies and there were no objections to the proposed easement.  In conformance with the California Environmental Quality Act, Categorical Exemption CE-15-186 was issued for this project on December 30, 2015 (Attachment B).

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Amy R. Webber on June 16, 2019 and by Budget Analysis Officer Julissa José-Murray on June 27, 2018.

 

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action on this matter is not time critical.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

An easement processing fee in the amount of $1,285 was deposited in the General Fund Group in the Public Works Department.  This recommendation has no staffing impact beyond the normal budgeted scope of duties and is consistent with existing City Council priorities.  There is no local job impact associated with this recommendation.

 

SUGGESTED ACTION

Approve recommendation.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

CRAIG A. BECK

DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS
