REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY AGENDA ITEM NO. 23

Meeting Date: December 13, 2005

Subject/Title: Acceptance of Redevelopment Agency’s Blight Progress Report, Property
Report and Housing Activities Report for Fiscal Year Ending 2005

Prepared by: Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Manager

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Community Development Director

RECOMMENDATION
By motion, accept the Blight Progress Report, Property Report and Housing Activities Report for fiscal year ending 2005 as required by the Health & Safety Code.

PREVIOUS ACTION
These annual reports are brought to and accepted by the Agency each December, the last being December 14, 2004.

BACKGROUND
The Community Redevelopment Law, as contained in the Health & Safety Code Section 33080.1, requires that in addition to the routine annual audit report, four additional annual reports be submitted to and accepted by the Redevelopment Agency within six months after the end of each fiscal year. The four 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.
4. Housing Activities Report identifying the Agency’s housing activities during the past fiscal year.

Attached for the Agency’s review and acceptance are the Blight Progress Report, the Property Report (identified as “Land Holdings”), and the Housing Activities Report. During the fiscal year ending 2005, no Agency loans exceeding $50,000 were in default, consequently the preparation of a Loan Report is unnecessary.

FISCAL IMPACT
None.

Attachments:
1) Blight Progress Report
2) Land Holdings Report
3) Housing Activities Report

Sunset Industrial Complex. This 28-acre industrial complex, developed by the City and Agency, includes a reimbursement agreement between the Agency and the City for the Agency to fund public improvements for the Sunset Industrial Complex in the amount of $3.7M. As parcels are sold, the Agency is reimbursed 86% of the proceeds for its proportionate share of the development costs. This project will generate a minimum of 550 jobs within 25 (+/-) industrial businesses. This on-going project will also voluntarily relocate four industrial users from Brentwood Blvd. to the Sunset Industrial Complex for future redevelopment of the Brentwood Blvd. corridor. During FYE 2005, the Agency processed a minor subdivision map adding another 4 (+/-) acres to the Complex, bringing the total number of parcels to 17. Also during FYE 2005, the Agency managed the sale and closing of 8 parcels, and building permits for 8 of the 17 parcels were issued. √ √ √ √
