CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: October 28, 2003
Subject/Title: Negotiations with public safety agencies regarding use of
proposed new Police Station facility at 9100 Brentwood Boulevard
Submitted by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Mike Davies, Police Chief
Authorize the Police Chief and City Manager to begin negotiations with the
California Highway Patrol, Contra Costa County Sheriff, East Contra Costa
Fire Protection District, Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office and
other related public safety agencies on exploring the possibility of leasing
the portion of the proposed new Police Station at 9100 Brentwood Boulevard
that will be not be used by the Brentwood Police Department, subject to the
City’s successful completion of a foreclosure action.
On September 17, 2003, the City Council authorized the City Manager to
execute a purchase agreement and note and deed of trust for property located
at 9100 Brentwood Boulevard (US Print) for a new police station.
The site at 9100 Brentwood Boulevard contains a 71,500 square foot building
which is currently being space-planned as the Brentwood Police Department.
The Police Department currently only needs approximately 45,000 square feet
of the facility which leaves 26,500 square feet of excess usable office
space. Several public agencies have expressed interest in having space next
to the Brentwood Police Department. Specifically the East Contra Costa Fire
Protection District (ECCFPD) and California Highway Patrol have given staff
preliminary indications of interest. Attached is a Request for Proposals to
lease office space for the ECCFPD. The Council New Police Station Ad Hoc
Committee has suggested that the excess space could ideally be used by
additional public safety organizations, and has encouraged staff to explore
the issue. This staff report and Council acceptance simply memorializes that
direction to staff. Subject to the City’s successful completion of a
foreclosure action, the City Council would have to approve any Memorandum of
Understanding and any lease concerning the use of the subject property.
This will create a positive cash flow for the City from the long-term lease
of the excess space available in the proposed 71,500 square foot police
station; a potential $300,000 to $500,000 per year income to the City.
