Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager


Authorize the City Manager to execute a professional services agreement not to exceed $118,600 plus a 10% contingency, for a total of $130,460, with Carlson Barbee & Gibson, Inc. to prepare a Survey, Tentative Map, Final Map and related work for the Sunset Industrial Complex. Amend the CIP Project # 337-3128 budget.


 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.

 On June 4, 2002, the Planning Commission certified the Environment Impact Report for the Sunset Industrial Complex, and on June 6 the Notice of Determination was filed with the County.

 On July 23, 2002 the City Council adopted Ordinance 710 approving the PD Zoning for Sunset Industrial Complex, and also awarded the construction contract for the Sunset Industrial Complex Improvements Project (CIP No. 336-3128) to Teichert Construction.

 On August 13, 2002 the City and the Redevelopment Agency entered into a Reimbursement Agreement loaning the City $3,000,000 for improvements at the Sunset Industrial Complex and describing the pro rata distribution of excess sales proceeds based on capital contributions to the project. (Council: Resolution 2630, Agency: Resolution RA-58).

 On November 26, 2002 the City Council approved a sales strategy for property located at the Sunset Industrial Complex and adopt criteria for the selection of successful candidates to purchase the subject property.


The City purchased a 40-acre parcel off Sunset Road in 1999 for the expansion of the adjacent sports complex by 16± acres, and to implement an economic development strategy by zoning the remaining acres for medium industrial land use in the 2001 General Plan update. The City intends to sell parcels within the Sunset Industrial Complex to end-users. The sale revenues to the City will be then used to reimburse the City for its cost of the land, planning, engineering and a portion of the infrastructure improvements. The sales revenues will also reimburse the Redevelopment Agency for paying a portion of the cost of improvements. Therefore, both the City and the Agency expect to receive full reimbursement for their out-of-pocket costs associated with developing the Sunset Industrial Complex as parcels are sold. Any excess receipts from the proceeds of the sales beyond the actual costs shall be shared between the City and Agency in amounts equitable to their contributions.

The project construction improvements are presently 95% complete. Requests for proposals (RFPs), following Council approved guidelines, to purchase property in the Complex have been distributed. Preliminary RFPs have been received that will account for all of the available property if all proposals result in successful sales transactions. The financial capacities of the proposals to complete a successful sales transaction are currently being evaluated.

A Boundary Survey and Final Map were not originally prepared for the project because it has not been feasible to determine the size and location of specific parcels until the actual end-users have been identified. The information to complete the Boundary Survey is now available. The requested parcel size and zoning characteristics of each proposal are currently being evaluated to determine the most appropriate location in the Complex. The completion of these tasks will enable a Final Map to be prepared for the project so that sales transactions can be finalized.

The CIP Project # 337-3128 budget amendment will be thoroughly discussed in the Fiscal Impact.


The Sunset Industrial Complex, CIP Project # 337-3128, has served as an umbrella project that is providing infrastructure benefits to the Wastewater Treatment, Solid Waste, and Water Enterprises as well as the Corporation Yard, Sports Park and Road Fee Account. Funding for the project has been provided by internal distributions from these accounts as well as a loan of $3,000,000 from the Redevelopment Agency. Permanent funding for the project will be from a final internal distribution from these accounts, as determined by the Finance Director, as well as the proceeds from the sale of the real property comprising the Sunset Industrial Complex. The Redevelopment Agency loan will also be repaid from sales proceeds and excess revenues will be distributed proportionately between the City and the Agency as determined by their pro rata capital contribution as described in the Reimbursement Agreement entered into between the City and Redevelopment Agency on August 13, 2002 (Council: Resolution 2630, Agency: Resolution RA-58).

The accounting for the project has been intricate due to the number of funding entities. It has always been the bookkeeping intention to keep the entire project costs in one CIP project and then account for the financial distribution in a final reconciliation as determined by the Finance Director. A land cost distribution was made during the preparation of the 2003 / 04 CIP Worksheet that split land costs among the different funding entities. This was clerical in nature and does not materially effect Staff’s projections on excess proceeds expected to be generated by the project. The following amendment to that worksheet and budget brings all the land costs into the project as well as reflects the Final Map contract referenced in this Staff Report.
