TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to consent to an Assignment and Assumption of Lease No. 28222 (Lease), for First Serve Tennis, Inc., and assign the Lease to Bridge Enterprises, Inc., a California corporation, for the continued operation and maintenance of El Dorado Park and Billie Jean King Tennis Centers until expiration of the Lease on December 31, 2023.

Lessee has provided written notice to the Director of Parks, Recreation and Marine Department of their intention to retire and remove themselves as the responsible party of the Lease before the expiration date of December 31, 2023. The Department supports the action of the Lessee to retire and the assignment of the Lease to Bridge Enterprises, Inc., for the remaining period of the Lease. Bridge Enterprises, Inc., has worked with First Serve Tennis, Inc., and the Department for 18 years, but has served the Long Beach community for over 25 years, providing tennis instructions.
