TITLE

Recommendation to adopt a Resolution of Intention to vacate 122 feet of the east-west alley located east of Long Beach Boulevard and west of an unnamed north-south alley, between the properties located at 2400 and 2450 Long Beach Boulevard;

 

Set the date of August 16, 2022, for the public hearing on the vacation; and

 

Accept Categorical Exemption No. CE-17-162.  (District 6)

 

DISCUSSION

Richard Earl Todd and Claudia Todd, husband and wife, as joint tenants, as to Parcel A; R & P Todd Family Partnership, LTD., a California limited partnership, formerly known as Todd Family Partnership, LTD., a California limited partnership, as to Parcel B; and, R & P Todd Family Partnership LTD., a California limited partnership, as to Parcel C, the owners of the property at 2400, 2450 and 2490 Long Beach Boulevard, request the vacation of 122 feet of the east-west alley located east of Long Beach Boulevard and west of an unnamed north-south alley, between the properties located at 2400 and 2450 Long Beach Boulevard (Attachment A). Vacating this portion of public right-of-way (ROW) would allow the property owners to improve the alley as part of their proposed residential development project adjacent to the alley.

 

On March 1, 2018, the Planning Commission determined that the proposed vacation of this portion of public ROW is in conformance with the adopted goals of the City’s General Plan (Attachment B).

 

Proceedings for this vacation are being conducted in accordance with Chapter 3, General Vacation Procedure, of the Public Streets, Highways and Service Easements Vacation Law of the California Streets and Highways Code. Findings must establish that the subject right-of-way is unnecessary for present or prospective public use. The Public Works Department supports this vacation based on findings that this portion of ROW is not necessary as a vehicular or pedestrian thoroughfare. The City of Long Beach (City) Public Works Department requests adoption of a Resolution of Intention to vacate in relation to the vacation described above. 

 

The necessary City departments have reviewed the proposed ROW vacation and have no objections to this action. In conformance with the California Environmental Quality Act, Categorical Exemption No. CE-17-162 was issued on February 20, 2018 (Attachment C). The Public Works Department requests acceptance of Categorical Exemption CE-17-162.

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Erin Weesner-McKinley on April 18, 2022 and by Budget Management Officer Nader Kaamoush on May 24, 2022.

 

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action is requested on June 21, 2022, to set a public hearing date on this matter for August 15, 2022.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

A tentative vacation processing fee in the amount of $8,150 was deposited in the General Fund Group in the Public Works Department. It is anticipated that the final vacation processing fee of $3,903 will be paid before the public hearing date. 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.
