TITLE

Recommendation to receive supporting documentation into the record, conclude the public hearing, find that the streets and alleys within the Seaport Village complex located at 5601 Paramount Boulevard to be vacated are not needed for present or prospective public use; and, adopt resolution ordering the vacation, based on the findings and memorializing the conditions of approval included therein.  (District 8)

 

DISCUSSION

Avanath Seaport, LLC, owner of the apartment buildings at 5601 Paramount Boulevard, is requesting the vacation of the streets and alleys adjacent to the apartment buildings, to install entry gates, creating a secured residential apartment campus (Attachment A).

 

Consistent with California land reversion practices and Chapter 3, General Vacation Procedure, of the Public Streets, Highways, and Service Easements Vacation Law of the California Streets and Highways Code, the vacated public rights-of-way will revert to the private property parcels adjacent to the street portion vacated.  Easements will be reserved over the vacated streets and alleys to protect the rights to existing utility services and appurtenances and to maintain ingress/egress access rights preserving legal access for the tenants of the apartment complex.

 

If approved, the vacated streets would allow the property owners to install entry gates creating an enclosed private residential apartment campus. Public Works supports this action based on the findings and conditions of approval, establishing the dedicated rights-of-way to be vacated is unnecessary for present or prospective use for the public at large.

 

On May 17, 2022, the City Council adopted Resolution No. RES-22-0075, declaring its intention to vacate the subject locations, and set June 21, 2022, as the date for the public hearing.

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Erin Weesner-McKinley and Budget Management Officer Nader Kaamoush on June 7, 2022.

                                                              

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

The date of this public hearing was set for June 21, 2022 by the City Council on May 17, 2022, to vacate streets and alleys within the Seaport Village complex located at 5601 Paramount Boulevard.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

A final vacation processing fee in the amount of $5,576 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.
