UNFINISHED BUSINESS

(#9.1) Resolution RDA 2011-010 – Authorizing the Executive Director to Enter into a Loan Agreement Between the San Ramon Redevelopment Agency and Greg Meier Providing a Loan for $20,000 for the Rehabilitation of Certain Real Property Located at 2085 San Ramon Valley Boulevard (APN: 208-250-047).

Administrative Analyst Joe Tanner gave a brief history of Diablo Motors.  They want to relocate to the ‘Total Sports’ building located at 2085 San Ramon Valley Boulevard.  He stated that the Rehabilitation loan will be for improvements to the façade, landscaping, parking lot, and interior walls.  A portion of the building will be subleased to an auction house.  Both of these uses are permitted by the Crow Canyon Specific Plan.  Both businesses will require minor use permits.  Both businesses will be required to comply with applicable planning and building code requirements.  The proposed uses meet the goals of the Redevelopment Area and the Economic Development Strategic Plan.  The loan amount of $20,000 will have a 10 year term at 5.5% which will be payable in the event that Diablo Motors moves from this location or does not renew their five year lease.

Vice Chair Livingstone noted that his concerns regarding parking during auctions and asked for the specific uses of the $20,000 Redevelopment Loan.  Mr. Tanner stated that the parking requirements will be determined in the Planning review process.  The loan will all be used for exterior improvements to the building.

Mbr. Wilson stated that the Finance Committee has reviewed this proposal.

Chair Perkins stated that he would like to see San Ramon’s three auto dealers participate in a promotion later this summer or fall.

Mbr. Hudson’s motion to adopt Resolution RDA 2011-010 was seconded by Mbr. Livingstone and passed 4-0.  Mbr. Rowley was absent.
