That the Governing Board approve Resolution No. 20-01-01, a Resolution Declaring Real Property Located at 2101 Sneath Lane, San Bruno, California 94066 as Exempt Surplus Land Pursuant to Assembly Bill 1486


COMMENTS:

The District is the current owner of the real property located at 2101 Sneath Lane, San Bruno, California, 94066 (“Site”). Approximately 2 acres of the Site is currently used by the District as its operations yard / District Maintenance Facility. The remainder of the Site (the “Property”) has been surplus to the District’s needs since the Board declared it as such on March 16, 1983.

On August 18, 2019, the Board approved and adopted Resolution No. 19-08-01, through which the District, pursuant to Education Code section 17466, determined that the Property is not, and will not upon the sale or lease thereof, be needed for school classroom buildings, and declared its intention to lease or sell the Property in accordance with the terms of Resolution No. 19-08-01. On September 11, 2019, the District obtained a renewal of a previously-approved waiver from the State Board of Education of specified sections of the Education Code to allow the District to utilize a Requests for Proposals (“RFP”) process and maximize flexibility and the return on the lease or sale of the Property, and the District subsequently issued an RFP to lease or sell the Property.

The District received a proposal to purchase the Property from Pulte Home Company, LLC (“Buyer”), pursuant to which the Buyer has proposed to purchase the Property for $79,500,000, subject to the terms and conditions contained therein.

On October 9, 2019, the Governor of California signed Assembly Bill (AB) 1486 into law, which added some new legal requirements to the process by which local agencies dispose of surplus property. Among other changes, AB 1486 amends the California Surplus Land Act (“Act”) to clarify that District property is exempt from most of the requirements contained in the Act, including those requirements to offer the property in question to several public agencies prior to disposing of the Property through competitive bidding. However, AB 1486 requires that the District declare, at a regular public meeting prior to disposing of surplus land, that the property is either "surplus land" or "exempt surplus land" under the Act. By adopting Resolution No. 20-01-01, the District will be in compliance with the new law by declaring the Engvall site as exempt surplus land under the Act. The Resolution would also authorize the Superintendent to sign the grant deed and other documents and take all actions necessary to open and close escrow for sale of the Property to Buyer pursuant to the terms and conditions of a separately negotiated and approved purchase agreement.
