Meeting Date: October 23, 2001

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution Determining that Formation of a Project Area Committee is Necessary for the Proposed Amendment to the Merged Brentwood and North Brentwood Redevelopment Plans, and Approving and Adopting Procedures for the Formation and Election of a Project Area Committee.

Submitted by: Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Analyst

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION 
Approve a resolution determining that formation of a Project Area Committee is necessary for the proposed amendments to the Merged Brentwood and North Brentwood Redevelopment Plans, and approving and adopting procedures for the formation and election of a Project Area Committee.

Select a community organization to participate on the Project Area Committee.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On June 26, 2001, the City Council of the City of Brentwood approved and adopted Resolution No. 2322 adding additional area to the North Brentwood Redevelopment Survey Area.

On October 2, 2001, the Planning Commission of the City of Brentwood approved and adopted Resolution No. 01-76 amending the boundaries of the North Brentwood Redevelopment Project Area (the “Added Area”), approving Amendments to the Preliminary Plans for the Brentwood and North Brentwood Redevelopment Projects (the “Existing Project Areas”), and submitting the Amendments to the Preliminary Plans to the Redevelopment Agency of the City of Brentwood for its acceptance and preparation of amendments to the official Redevelopment Plans for the Projects.


BACKGROUND
As a prerequisite to the adoption of a redevelopment plan amendment that may permit the power of eminent domain to acquire residential properties, the California Community Redevelopment Law mandates that residential owner occupants and tenants, business owners, and community organizations be given the opportunity to form a Project Area Committee (“PAC”) to formally consider the proposed redevelopment plan amendment and to report its recommendations to the Redevelopment Agency and the City Council for their consideration prior to adoption of the amendment. 

The City Council and Redevelopment Agency are contemplating the adoption of an amendment to the Brentwood and North Brentwood Redevelopment Project Areas that, among other things, reinstates the use of eminent domain on residential properties. As such, the City Council must determine that the formation and election of a PAC is necessary for the proposed amendment adoption, as well as adopt formal procedures for PAC formation and election. 

The opportunity to serve on the PAC will be provided by written notice to all residential owner-occupants, residential tenants and business owners within the proposed Added Area and Existing Project Areas and by public notice in the local newspaper. At this time, staff anticipates mailing approximately 3000 notices. Agency staff shall conduct a public informational meeting, and distribute copies of the adopted PAC formation and election procedures, Amendments to the Preliminary Plans, and any other related information, and shall explain the establishment of, function of, and opportunity to serve on the PAC. 

The election among the voting groups to be represented on the PAC must be completed within 100 days after the Planning Commission’s October 2nd approval of Amendments to the Preliminary Plans. After the election, the City Council shall hold a meeting to announce the election results, confirm the PAC members, and determine that the procedures were correctly followed. 

The PAC’s role is to review the proposed redevelopment plan amendment and prepare a report and recommendation to the City Council. The PAC shall be consulted regarding policy matters that deal with the planning and provision of residential facilities, replacement housing, relocation plans, and other matters that affect the residents of the project area. This role continues during the redevelopment plan amendment adoption process and for a three-year period after adoption. The PAC is subject to the Brown Act, PAC meetings are open to the public and minutes of meeting must be maintained by the Agency. 

Staff recommends the composition of the PAC consist of the following seven members:

· 2 residential owner occupants, one each from the Brentwood and North Brentwood Project Areas.
· 2 residential tenant occupants, one each from the Brentwood and North Brentwood Project Areas.
· 2 business owners, one each from the Brentwood and North Brentwood Project Areas.
· 1 representative from an existing community organization selected by the Council. 

Staff also recommends the City Council consider selection of Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of Brentwood, or the Brentwood Villa Homeowners Association as the community organization component of the PAC.

FISCAL IMPACT
The City Council must provide funding, as it determines necessary, for the operation of the PAC including equipment and supplies, legal counsel and staff. PAC members serve without compensation.
