Meeting Date: January 14, 2003
Subject/Title: Acceptance of Redevelopment Agency’s Blight Progress Report and Property Report for Fiscal Year Ending 2002
Submitted by: Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Analyst
Approved by: John Stevenson, Executive Director
By motion, accept the Blight Progress Report and Property Report for fiscal year ending 2002 as required by the Health & Safety Code.
An amendment to the Community Redevelopment Law, as contained in the Health & Safety Code, requires that, in addition to the routine annual audit report, the State Controller’s Report, and the Housing & Community Development Report, three additional annual reports be submitted to and accepted by the Redevelopment Agency within six months after the end of each fiscal year. The three reports include the following:
1. Blight Progress Report specifying the Agency’s progress in alleviating blight during the previous fiscal year.
2. Property Report describing properties owned by the Agency and those acquired in the previous fiscal year.
3. Loan Report identifying any loans made by the Agency that are $50,000 or more and which are in default or not in compliance with the terms of the loan.
Attached for the Agency’s review and acceptance are the Blight Progress Report and the Property Report (identified as “Land Holdings”). During the fiscal year ending 2002, the Agency made no loans, consequently, the preparation of a Loan Report is unnecessary.
1) Blight Progress Report
2) Land Holdings Report

2002 Plan Amendment. The Council and RDA finalized a plan amendment to add 138 acres to the North Brentwood Redevelopment Project Area, commonly referred to as the Sunset Industrial Complex, to facilitate the relocation of the existing, incompatible industrial uses along Brentwood Boulevard in an effort to eliminate conditions of blight, to prevent continuing decline and stagnation of the area. In turn, removing the impediments and providing the assistance and incentives needed to stimulate private investment will renew and create economic stimulation within the area. √ √ √ √ √ √
2002 Plan Amendment. The Plan Amendment also extended and re-established eminent domain authority for the purpose of alleviating the obstacles to develop, improve, rehabilitate and modernize properties in the Merged Redevelopment Project Areas. √ √ √ √ √ √
Gregory Ranch and Sand Creek Business Center. The Agency approved a Reimbursement Agreement for the development of a 40-acre mixed-use development. The Agency shall reimburse the Developer for a portion of the cost to construct and install public improvements necessary for the project. The anticipated build out of office buildings, hotel, restaurants, business park and townhomes will add approximately $61M of assessed value to the tax rolls, generate approximately 850 jobs, and generate transient occupancy and sales tax to the City. √ √ √
Brentwood Boulevard Parking Lot. The construction of 17 additional surface parking spaces in the downtown area on an Agency-owned parcel was completed. This shall facilitate expansion of existing businesses and attraction of new businesses, while providing needed public improvements. √ √
Water and Sewer Line Improvements. Construction of water and sewer line improvements on Brentwood Boulevard and Lone Tree Way, and construction of sewer improvements on Brentwood Boulevard north of Grant Street were started to address failing well and septic systems for health and safety purposes, and to improve and modernize public utilities in the area. √ √ √ √
Downtown Parking Study. The Agency embarked on a Downtown Parking Study to analyze parking structure designs and layouts, construction costs for the parking component and the retail component, and financial projections and constraints. √ √
Summertime Concert Series. The Agency sponsored a concert series in the Downtown as an effort to support, improve and preserve the economic stimulation and revitalization of the historic Downtown area. Providing activities and venues to attract pedestrian movement assists in the retention of existing businesses and attraction of new businesses. √
Delta Theater Marquee. The RDA approved a grant for the restoration and rehabilitation of certain historical signs within the downtown area. √
Casitas Del Sol. RHS Construction proposes to develop a 9-unit, moderate-income, housing development on Agency-owned parcel to remove existing blight conditions and encourage in-fill development. The housing development will be conditioned for availability to residents and workers of Brentwood. Approval of DDA is expected early next fiscal year. √ √ √
Sycamore Place II. The Agency is working with Christian Church Homes to develop a 40-unit, very-low income, senior apartment complex. Approval of the DDA is expected next early fiscal year. This project is considered an in-fill residential project. √ √ √ √
Sycamore Place I. The Agency contributed to the expansion of the community room at Sycamore Place I, a 40-unit, very-low income, senior apartment complex. The expansion is for the purpose of enhancing the programs and activities of the senior facility. √ √
Oak and Walnut Assemblage. The Agency completed its acquisition of a small parcel in an effort to assemble two Agency-owned parcels and one privately-owned parcel for a possible retail and/or restaurant use. Staff anticipates soliciting proposals from interested parties to be considered for selection as a developer. √ √ √ √
Seismic Upgrade Program. The Seismic Upgrade Program provides several methods by which the Agency may provide financial assistance to property owners who wish to seismically retrofit their property. √ √
