1:10 am
to notify the controller of this. supervisor avalos: thank you, madam clerk. >> i will address any questions that you have and i am joined by staff to handle any project questions you might have. taking a look at the map on the screen, it shows the areas of the project about roughly parallel to the san francisco county line. the bay is on the right and those colored parcels are the parcels we will be dealing with. the first item, item number two, is in red. the second item, 3, in green and yellow. so, i would like to take the opportunity to use the excellent report from the budget analyst
1:11 am
to guide us through these packages of acquisitions. with respect to item number two, this is a purchase of easement and license agreements improvement project, as the name implies, constructing sewer facilities to improve storm water and wastewater collection in the area. so, this first item is a purchase of easements and licensing agreements with universal paragon and several other entities, including two permanent sub-seasons, as well as two temporary licenses with a six month extension. the figures in the chart assumed the full 24 months. the total purchase price for these rights is just under $2.5 million. just a couple of the anomalies
1:12 am
on the chart, one quick explanation is talking about the acquisition of easements or license -- easement or license rights. so, the rates that have been applied reflect a reduction of the percentage. because it is less than complete the ownership of the properties. the $654,000 purchase on the chart includes severance damage calculation, the impact to the remainder property that is not physically a part of the underground easement, but there might be an impact with rides the future potential residential development density. so, the independent appraiser looks at that as additional compensation elements.
1:13 am
when you look at the price per square foot, i know that what i looked at the chart those numbers jumped out as different. the reason is the severance damage calculation that has been blended together. that is why the numbers are just a bit different. probably a legitimate approach when one considers the impact to the rest of the property. there is a $1,020,000 purchase on the chart, including negotiated severance damage for $675,000 in which the owners are rich -- initially claimed $900,000 based on reports that we generally concurred with, but after speaking with ownership and removing pretty much all of the soft cost claims, we felt that a
1:14 am
legitimate amount of severance was $675,000. below that you see the license costs, which are fairly straightforward. replacing the 24 months when they only needed 18 months. item #3 was a purchase of permanent subsidies and easements. we had some different ownership levels in their, split by those parcels. the combined purchase price was $174,000 representing fair market value and are discounted value from fee land ownership. probably more than you ever wanted to know about real estate, hopefully addressing the questions you had about these easements.
1:15 am
project managers are here to take you through any program question they might have. >> thank you for your presentation. we will hear from the budget analyst and if there are questions we will go on to those. >> members of the committee, real estate has represented all of these easement acquisition prices are representative of fair market value. on page 6 of our report we have a series of recommendations, the first is to amend the title, 100688 to include the rat -- reference of permanent subsurface easement, included in the body of the resolution and excluded from the title. the second recommendation is that we recommend that you approve all 10 as amended.
1:16 am
we also recommend that with regard to the file, adopting the findings of the california environmental quality act, that you reference the appropriate ordinance, placing the funds on reserve. so that it is a correct reference. our suggestion is to delete the paragraph beginning on page three, line 14, adding more with the language stated on page 6 of the report, out with our recommendation of the approved a resolution as amended. >> thank you. do we need a presentation on item number four? supervisor avalos: colleagues,
1:17 am
any questions? supervisor elsbernd: they are ok with this sequence? supervisor avalos: let's open these items for public comment. would any members of the public like to comment on items two through four? seeing no one, we will close public comments. supervisor elsbernd: i move all three items forward with recommendation. supervisor avalos: seconded and moved with recommendation, taken without objection. madam clerk, if you could please call item no. 5. actually, madam clerk, why not call the treasure island related items next, that will go pretty quickly. that would be items 8 through 13.

approving and authorizing the treasure island development authority to enter into a modification to the cooperative agreement with the u.s. navy to extend the cooperative agreement from october 1, 2010, to september 30, 2011. supervisor avalos: thank you, welcome. >> in the science director of the treasure island operations. the first four amendments speak to the navy's amendments that we have before you now, taken separately as separate issues the development coalition became the caretaker of the island after the base closed one decade ago. because the change in the property has not taken place, they are allowed to lease the buildings at no cost, of these
1:20 am
buildings and properties are sub-leased to create special years, becoming the operating money of the agency. these additional buildings and properties, amendments are required. they have been amended numerous times over 10 years, generating operating funds for the authority. some of them are for public use and do not generate income, other sub-leases are with non- profits. in the course of amending our agreements with the navy, section 9.118b is triggered if sublease exceeds the 10 year threshold of the charter, coming before you annually to and given
1:21 am
the consistency with 9.118. you have proof before those immense action while it -- that counseling legislators subsequently approved of the treasure island conversion act, designating treasure island as a trustee and redevelopment agency. concurrently with operational closures, the city and county of san francisco entered into a cooperation with the navy where the city agreed to assume responsibility for various services and treasure island. the first was maintenance of storm water and electric and

1:23 am
with the amendments to the mastery wrote leases. thank you. supervisor avalos: thank you for your presentation. mr. rose? please share your report on these items. >> except for the requested one- year extensions of elises, there are no other changes to the existing provision. this is something that has been approved each year for several years. the only other thing that i would point out is that we know that for the past 10 years we have stated that treasure island be transferred from the u.s. navy to title within one year but the transfer has been
1:24 am
repeatedly delayed. transfer taking longer than anticipated, the status further explained in the report on pages 5 and 6. mr. sullivan advises, as the director indicated, that treasure island is anticipated the transfer. that is the current situation between the spring and fall of 2011. these leases that are before you in the cooperative agreement with then terminate upon the transfer from the title. we recommend that you approve these resolutions. supervisor avalos: thank you, mr. rose. would you concur that is the timeline for review? >> it is true, it just came out on monday. we are moving forward and anticipate the come before the

1:29 am
the mta has put the money into the budget for fiscal year 2011 and 2012. they did approve this item and have reservations, but given other options before them they felt it was a better alternative. the budget analyst made a comment that i can respond to after he is done about guaranteed revenue, but this would not be allowed in all mta vehicles. 5% of bosses, tighten does not -- titan does not think there's that kind of demand to sell that many. questions? supervisor mirkarimi: = i have a couple of questions, please.
