Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to accept an easement deed from Amcal Las Ventanas Fund, LP, a California limited partnership, the owner of the property at 1795 Long Beach Boulevard, for the installation of public utilities; and

Accept State Clearinghouse Number 2015031034. (District 1)

DISCUSSION
Amcal Las Ventanas Fund, LP, a California limited partnership, the owner of the property at 1795 Long Beach Boulevard, is constructing a new five-story 14,478-square-foot, mixed-use building consisting of 3,938 square feet of commercial space and 102 residential units (101 affordable residential units).

To accommodate the improvements, it is necessary that an easement be granted to the City of Long Beach (City) to allow for the installation of a double-check detector valve and water meter (Attachment A). These devices provide backflow prevention to protect water supplies from contamination, and monitoring information, respectively. The Department of Public Works is asking the City Council to authorize the acceptance of an easement deed to accomplish these purposes.

City staff conducted a review of the affected agencies and there were no objections to the proposed easement. In conformance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), State Clearinghouse Number 2015031034 was issued on January 9, 2018.
