Press Release
Sunset Industrial Complex Update
11/10/03

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. 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.

The project construction improvements are presently 95% complete. Following Council approved guidelines, Requests for proposals (RFP’s) to purchase property in the Complex have been distributed. Preliminary RFP’s 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 have been evaluated.

The Sales Strategy Criteria (approved by City Council November 26, 2002), which considered business location, type, job generation and economic impacts, has resulted in the following businesses being included in the project:

• Brentwood Ready Mix
• Town & Country Roofing
• Pizzagoni Towing
• R Brothers Concrete
• Brockman Engineering
• Five Star Plumbing
• Woodmore Painting
• Eco Water
• Thorpe Design
• Henson Plumbing
• HFW Construction Supply
• California Stone
• Cannon Enterprises
• Pottery World

Staff is particularly pleased that one of the project’s main goals of relocating blighted business properties from the Brentwood Boulevard Corridor has been accomplished through the successful relocation of the Brentwood Ready Mix concrete batch plant, Pizzagoni’s Towing storage yard, and R-Brothers Concrete to the Industrial Complex.
