TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to accept an easement deed from Vista Del Puerto, L.P., a California limited partnership, and the owner of the property at 1836-1852 Locust Avenue, for the installation of public utilities; and

Accept State Clearinghouse Number 2015031034. (District 6)

DISCUSSION
Vistas Del Puerto, L.P., a California limited partnership, and owner of the property at 1836-1852 Locust Avenue, is constructing a new five-story, 65,855-square-foot building with 48 affordable residential units. To accommodate the improvements and modifications, it is necessary that an easement be granted to the City to allow for the installation of a double-check detector valve (Attachment A). These devices provide backflow prevention to protect water supplies from contamination. The Department of Public Works is asking the City Council to authorize acceptance of an easement deed to accomplish this purpose.

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 12, 2018 (Attachment B). The Department of Public Works is asking the City Council to accept CEQA State Clearinghouse Number 2015031034.

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Erin Weesner-McKinley on March 11, 2020 and by Revenue Management Officer Geraldine Alejo on April 20, 2020.
