DISCUSSION
The Successor Agency to the Redevelopment Agency of the City of Long Beach (Successor Agency) currently owns the property located at 998 East Pacific Coast Highway, Assessor Parcel Number 7268-003-913 (Subject Property) (Exhibit A - Site Map). The Successor Agency acquired the Subject Property in 2007 consistent with the goals of the Central Long Beach Strategic Guide for Development, which identified the Poly High Redevelopment Project Area (Area) as being in great need of public improvements to facilitate the removal of blight, increase social and recreational opportunities in the community, and assist in creating a safe, more cohesive and economically dynamic neighborhood. The Successor Agency acquired the Subject Property utilizing Poly High bond proceeds and subsequently developed. the parcel into passive open space for the Poly High School and surrounding community.
 
In compliance with AB1484, the Successor Agency submitted its Long Range Property Management Plan (LRPMP) to the California State Department of Finance (DO F) for review in October 2013. The LRPMP categorizes the Subject Property as a Government Use parcel, as the Subject Property is currently utilized as a public park. Section 34181 (a) and Section 34191.3 of the Health and Safety Code allow for the transfer of properties categorized as Government Use prior to the OaF's approval of the LRPMP. Successor Agency staff would like to proceed with conveying fee title to the Subject Property to the City.
 
Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act, Categorical Exemption,CE 14-091 was completed related to the proposed transaction.
