year the City took over the Women’s Club building from the Brentwood Women’s
Club due to escalating utility and maintenance costs.
Its use was expanded to include community organizations in addition
to the Women’s Club. This
has proven to be a popular use, as meeting space is at quite a premium.
facility, though, needs a good deal of repair.
HVAC systems are old. The
building needs painting, screens need replacing and the front door is
not in compliance with ADA requirements.
These facility needs are reflected, in part, in the difference
between the estimated market value of $60,000 and $95,000, and the cost
of $5,000. The building will
operate fine for now, but we will need to build it into our building inventory
and lay out a program of repairs.
rear of the facility is a parking facility for the City-owned property
at 118–120 Oak Street. Presently
the lot is used primarily by County Health Center workers.
Given the tightness of parking in the downtown area these spots
are important for the city in the long-term and having both the buildings
owned by the City ensures control over these spots.
recommends approval of this purchase.
