CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 13

Meeting Date: October 26, 2004

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution authorizing and approving the application for
grant funds from the State Urban Parks and Healthy Communities Program

Prepared by: Finance: Karen Wahl, Grants Administrator

Submitted by: Craig Bronzan, Parks and Recreation Director

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution approving the application for State Urban Parks and Healthy Communities Program under the California Clean Water, Clean Air, Safe Neighborhood Parks, and Coastal Protection Act of 2002 for the Brentwood Union School District Joint-Use Community Gymnasium Project.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On May 25, 2004, City Council approved Resolution No. 2004-117, approving the joint-use agreement between the City and Brentwood Union School District (BUSD) for American Avenue Middle School related to the American Avenue Gymnasium.

BACKGROUND
The Joint-Use Program authorized by Assembly Bill 16 allows a school district to utilize funds from a joint-use partner to build a joint-use project the district would not otherwise be able to build due to lack of financial resources. The City of Brentwood and Brentwood Union School District have a longstanding working relationship in the development and utilization of joint-use facilities. Many of these facilities also qualify for matching money from the State of California due to the joint-use relationship that exists.

The State Joint-Use Program will provide 50% of the cost of constructing the American Avenue Middle School gymnasium with the School District and the City of Brentwood sharing the rest of the cost. The City is eligible to apply for a grant from the State Urban Parks and Healthy Communities Program for to fund development of active recreational use facilities, such as the new gymnasium.

The California Department of Parks and Recreation has been delegated the responsibility for the administration of the State Urban Parks and Healthy Communities Program and have established procedures requiring the City to certify by resolution approval of filing the application for funds.

FISCAL IMPACT
The State Joint-Use Program funds 50% of the cost of approved joint-use facilities and requires a 50% match from the school district. The total estimated cost of the new gymnasium at American Avenue Middle School is $5,000,000. The City has agreed to provide $1.5 million and the School District will provide $2.5 million. This grant request, if approved, will fund the remaining $1,000,000. The project is included in the adopted 2004/05 – 2008/09 CIP program and is a funded expense in years 2007/08 and 2008/09 through park development facility fees.

The proposal to the Urban Parks and Healthy Communities Program will request $1,000,000 for this project. The State Urban Parks and Healthy Communities Program requires that the City provide matching funds of at least 25% of the project cost. If successful, funding for the project will be as follows:

• $2.5 million, Brentwood Union School District
• $1,000,000, California Urban Parks and Healthy Communities Program
• $1.5 million, City of Brentwood Park Development Facility Fees

Total Project Cost
$5,000,000
