 CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 10



Meeting Date: January 14, 2003

Subject/Title: Amend the criteria for the selection of successful candidates to purchase
property at the Sunset Industrial Complex.

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Economic Development Director

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager


RECOMMENDATION 
Amend the criteria for the selection of successful candidates to purchase property at the Sunset Industrial Complex to include businesses that have relocated out of Brentwood within the past four years due to the lack of a suitable building site as a five-point priority under the Existing Business Location Priorities criteria category and include these businesses in the initial sales offering.

PREVIOUS ACTION

 City Council authorized the purchase of approximately 40 acres of property located at the northeast corner the Tresch and Sunset Roads.

 City Council authorized various consultant contracts to master-plan and prepare environmental documents for approximately 132 acres of city owned land northeast of Tresch and Sunset Roads to include a 49.2 acre Wastewater Treatment Plant, 2.7 acre Solid Waste Plant, 37.7 Sports Park, 13.3 acre Corporation Yard and a 28.4 acre Industrial Complex.

 City Council authorized a consultant contract with McGill Martin Self to prepare infrastructure improvement plan for the Sunset Industrial Complex.

 City Council authorized a contract with Tiechert Construction to build the infrastructure improvements at the Sunset Industrial Complex.

 City Council approved a sales strategy for property located at the Sunset Industrial Complex and adopted criteria for the selection of successful candidates to purchase the subject property on December 10, 2002.

BACKGROUND

City Council, at the December 10, 2002 meeting, directed Staff to restrict the location of existing businesses wishing to purchase property at the Sunset Industrial Complex to the following areas for a sixty-day initial offering.

 Relocation from Brentwood Redevelopment Agency’s Project Areas through the Agency’s Voluntary Business Relocation Program. (8 Points)

 Relocation from the City of Brentwood. (5 Points)

 Relocation from unincorporated areas surrounding the City of Brentwood. (3 Points)

Staff identified a map (attached) from the 2001-2002 General Plan titled Brentwood Planning Area that provides an excellent description of unincorporated areas surrounding the City of Brentwood. However, when Staff compared this map with the list of interested parties a clear conflict became apparent. Approximately three years ago, when the Industrial Complex was first envisioned, Jeff Tamayo, owner of Town and Country Roofing and other associated businesses located in Brentwood, expressed a very strong interest in purchasing property in the Industrial Complex to relocate his businesses. 

Planning for the Industrial Complex became more complex than expected due to the coordination necessary for the Sports Park, Solid Waste Plant, Corporation Yard and many other issues. Jeff Tamayo, due to the growth of his businesses, was not able to wait until the Industrial Complex was ready to occupy and was forced to relocate his businesses to Byron because of the lack of a suitable site in Brentwood. Mr. Tamayo now wants to return his businesses to Brentwood in the Industrial Complex.

The conflict, as the existing location criteria and the proposed map describing unincorporated areas outside of Brentwood now stand, is that Tamayo’s businesses would not be eligible to participate in the initial offering. This appears to be unfair because his businesses were historically based in Brentwood and were only moved due to the lack of properly zoned land in the City. Further, it is not practical to revise the map that identifies the unincorporated areas to extend to Byron because that would not be consistent with City Councils’ direction.

Staff recommends City Council amend the criteria for the selection of successful candidates to purchase property at the Sunset Industrial Complex to include businesses that have relocated out of Brentwood within the past four years due to the lack of a suitable building site as a five-point priority under the Existing Business Location Priorities criteria category and include these businesses in the initial sales offering as the most efficient way to address this conflict.
