TITLE

Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to execute a quitclaim of easement deed to Century Affordable Development, Inc., a California non-profit corporation, the owner of the property located at 1201-1235 Long Beach Boulevard; and

 

Accept Categorical Exemption CE-15-158.  (District 1)

 

DISCUSSION

Century Affordable Development, Inc., owner of the property at 1201-1235 Long Beach Boulevard, is constructing a new, two-building, 160-unit senior and supportive housing apartment complex on a vacant 1.7-acre parcel.  An abandoned water line runs through the property, which the owner is requesting that the City quitclaim.  To accommodate the improvements and modifications, the Long Beach Water Department has confirmed that the existing 4-inch cast iron water main, which runs north-south through the property, has been abandoned and is no longer necessary (Attachment A). 

 

City staff conducted a review of affected agencies and there were no objections to the proposed quitclaim of easement.  In conformance with the California Environmental Quality Act, Categorical Exemption CE-15-158 was issued for this project on November 10, 2015 (Attachment B).

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Erin Weesner-McKinley on November 7, 2019 and by Revenue Management Officer Geraldine Alejo on December 24, 2019.                                                                                                                                                                        

 

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action on this matter is not time critical.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

An easement processing fee in the amount of $3,195 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.

Approve recommendation.
