(#9.1) Geologic Hazard Abatement District No. 1990-01 (GHAD) – Adopt Resolution GHAD 2008-010 – Finding Approximately 6,000 Square Feet of Parcel D in Subdivision 7015 (APN 217-401-047) to be Surplus and Authorizing the Chair of the GHAD Board to Execute a Sales Agreement for Said Property at the Appraised Value with the Owner of 619 Rock Rose Lane (APN 217-401-039).

Robin Bartlett, Senior Engineer, presented the staff report.  He stated that the parcel is not required for the functions of the GHAD. 

Mbr. Hudson expressed concern regarding the Conditions of Sale.  Acting City Attorney Bob Saxe stated that the homeowner’s CC&Rs will apply to the new parcel once it becomes part of the homeowner’s property.  Staff will evaluate a standard real estate contract and prepare a list of applicable disclosures.  Mbr. Hudson requested that the information be communicated to the buyer so that he is aware that the new parcel will be subject to the City’s development process and to the HOA’s requirements.

Cm. Perkins asked for clarification on the size of the parcel to be purchased.  Mr. Bartlett responded that the buyer is interested in purchasing only 6,000 square feet.  The buyer paid for the appraisal and is willing to purchase the parcel for $55,000.

Vice Chair Livingstone expressed his concern about the owner’s property rights and that the current CC&Rs will apply to the additional parcel.  Mr. Saxe stated that the City will secure a comprehensive disclosure statement from the buyer at the close of escrow. 

Cm. Rowley asked if any agencies are interested in the parcel.  Mr. Bartlett stated that the parcel was offered to and rejected by the East Bay Regional Park District. 

Mbr. Hudson’s motion to approve Resolution GHAD 2008-010 was seconded by Mbr. Livingstone and passed 5-0. 

At 6:21 p.m., there being no further business, Board Chair Wilson adjourned the meeting.

Approved at the October 28, 2008 City Council meeting 4-0; Hudson absent.
