PUBLIC COMMENT

Roz Rogoff, resident, stated that Jim Gibbon is working on an application for Historic Status for the Mudd’s building.  She requested that the Successor Agency (SA), as owner of the Mudd’s property, write a letter approving the application for California Landmark Status for the Mudd’s property.

Jim Gibbon, resident, stated that the dilemma is to decide the best use of the Mudd’s property:  preserving it or selling it to a developer.  If sold, the money will go to the state.  A variance would be required in order to build because of the creek’s proximity.  The existing building could be used in association with the Gardens, as a learning center, or as a historic site.  The property has potential if the building, which is in overall good shape, can be saved.  He recommended tenant improvements versus tearing down the building.  Vice Chair Hudson requested that Mr. Gibbon send a letter to the SA outlining the specifics of his request.  Mr. Gibbon stated that he will make a formal request to the SA.

(#8.1) Resolution No. SA 2013-003 – Requesting Approval from the Oversight Board for Termination of the Disposition and Development Agreement with Michael LeBlanc and requesting Authority from the Oversight Board to Proceed with the Process for Sale of the Mudd’s Property.

City Manager Greg Rogers summarized the process involved in the Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA) with Michael LeBlanc.  The DDA provides that failure to submit satisfactory evidence of financing in a timely manner constitutes a default.  Failure to cure the default within thirty (30) days after the date of a written demand gives the SA the right to terminate the DDA in its entirety.  On December 3, 2012, the OB adopted Resolution OB No. 2012-008 giving direction to the SA to serve a written demand on the Developer to cure his default.  The SA sent the written demand letter to the Developer.  The SA has not received any response from the Developer.  As a result of these actions, the SA is now requesting authority from the OB to notify the Developer that the DDA has been terminated and proceed with the sale of the Mudd’s property.

Mbr. Perkins’ motion to adopt Resolution No. SA 2013-003 was seconded by Mbr. Livingstone and passed 4-0-1-0.  Chair Clarkson was absent.
