TITLE

Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to accept an easement deed from The Vault Warehouse, LLC, a California Limited Liability Company, and the owner of the property 1000 New York Street, for the installation of public utilities and all related public right-of-way purposes; and

 

Accept Categorical Exemption No. CE-16-131.  (District 6)

 

DISCUSSION

The Vault Warehouse, LLC, a California Limited Liability Company, and the owner of the property located at 1000 New York Street, is installing a new fire line pursuant to an approved Long Beach Water Department construction drawing (Attachment A).  A fire line service Double Check Detector Assembly will be installed on the property.  These devices provide backflow prevention to protect water supplies from contamination.  To accommodate the installation of the Double Check Detector Assembly, it is necessary that the property owner grant an easement to the City of Long Beach (City) to allow for the installation at the property (Attachment B).  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 accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the CEQA Guidelines, Categorical Exemption No. CE-16-131 was issued for the project  (Attachment C).

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Vanessa S. Ibarra on May 31, 2022 and by Budget Management Officer Nader Kaamoush on June 6, 2022.

 

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action on this matter is not time critical.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

An easement processing fee in the amount of $3,313.44 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.
