Subject/Title: Approval of Agreement for Payment of Contract Services with Arcadia Development Co. for Environmental Impact Report for Home Depot Project

Submitted by: Mitch Oshinsky, AICP, Community Development Director

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

Approve the Agreement for Payment of Contract Services with Arcadia Development Co. for Environmental Impact Report for Home Depot Project


Eli Reinhard, President of Arcadia Development Company wishes to proceed with plans for development of a major retail commercial center, and other associated development, which may include business park and residential uses, on the southeast corner of Lone Tree Way and Heidorn Ranch Road. Due to the size and scope of the proposal (the retail component alone comprises over 405,000 square feet of building area), it is evident to Mr. Reinhard and the City, that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) needs to be prepared for the project.

By adoption of this Agreement, Mr. Reinhard will pay for all costs for production of the EIR, in addition to all other applicable City development and application fees. Adoption of this Agreement is appropriate prior to the following item on the Council Agenda on December 12, 2000, which is for approval of the contract with the EIR preparer.

In order to avoid potential conflict of interest, the City has, with Mr. Reinhard’s concurrence, selected the consultant, EIP Associates. Mr. Reinhard will pay the City for the EIR, and the City will pay EIP, who will report directly to me. 


AGREEMENT, made this 12th day of December, 2000, between the CITY OF BRENTWOOD (“CITY”), a municipal corporation, and ARCADIA DEVELOPMENT COMPANY ("APPLICANT").

For the consideration hereby acknowledged, the CITY and APPLICANT agree as follows:

SECTION 5. TERMINATION. This Agreement may be terminated by either the CITY or the APPLICANT following thirty (30) days written notice of intention to terminate; thereafter, the APPLICANT shall be liable to the CITY only for those fees and costs earned by Consultant to the date of termination and which shall be substantiated by an itemized written statement certified and submitted to CITY by the Consultant.
