Item 5

Discussion of and direction to staff on proposed Business Relocation Assistance Program for businesses within Redevelopment Project Areas interested in voluntary relocation to Sunset Industrial Complex.

Gina Rozenski, Redevelopment Analyst introduced the item explaining that one of the reasons for the recent adoption of a Plan Amendment to the North Brentwood Redevelopment Plan was to add the Sunset Area for the purpose providing appropriately zoned land for voluntary relocation of existing incompatible and non-conforming industrial businesses along Brentwood Boulevard. The effort to eliminate the existing conditions of blight and prevent the continuing decline and stagnation of the area is intended to provide opportunities to attract private investment, promote economic stimulus, and redevelop areas to current standards and zoning requirements. The Brentwood Redevelopment Agency wishes to implement a strategy to provide assistance to businesses that may be interested in voluntarily relocating to the Sunset Industrial Complex.

Rather than narrow and restrictive methods to implement the assistance program, staff suggests a flexible and comprehensive program that includes several techniques that provide assistance and incentives for voluntary relocation while motivating redevelopment efforts at the vacated sites will provide the intended flexibility for the program. 

The Agency directed staff to draft a resolution for Agency action.
