ORAL COMMUNICATION No member of the public spoke under Oral Communication. OLD BUSINESS Selection of Development Team for Main Gate Site. Louis Dell’Angela, Director of Community Development explained that the purpose of this item is to have the City Council/Redevelopment Agency select a development team for the Main Gate project site. After the selection of the most qualified Master Developer is made, an Exclusive Negotiating Rights Agreement (ENRA) would be prepared in cooperation with the preferred team and brought to a future City/Agency meeting for approval. He outlined the selection process, and the evaluation criteria that the Selection Panel used in their evaluation of the development teams. In November 2004, an RFQ/RFP was sent to approximately 450 development teams. Nine qualified Development Teams responded, the Panel independently ranked the nine submittals and requested additional information from the top five-ranked development teams. Clark Realty Capital, LLC-General Growth Properties, Inc and C.W. Clark, Inc. & Phelps Program Management responded to the request and submitted the required additional information. After review of the materials, the Selection Panel conducted an extensive interview with the two final development teams in July 2005. Following the interviews, the two teams were evaluated based on their presentations, the qualifications of all members of each team and their ability to meet the City’s stated criteria for selection of the most qualified development team for the project. At the Joint City Council-Redevelopment Agency, the two final development teams, Clark/General Growth and C.W. Clark/Phelps, each presented their qualifications and development vision for the Main Gate site to the Council and the public. The Selection Panel, after completing their review of the presented economic and background information on each of the competing teams, recommends the selection of the Clark Realty Capital, LLC-General Growth Properties, Inc. as the preferred candidate for the Seaside Main Gate project. There was further discussion regarding the conceptual plans and the financial responsibilities of the Development Team. Larry Kimball, representative of C.W. Clark, Inc. & Phelps spoke and was available to answer questions.

OLD BUSINESS – Continued Frank Cercone, representative of Clark Realty Capital, LLC-General Growth Properties spoke and was available to answer questions. There was further discussion between the City Council and the development teams regarding the time schedule and the phasing of the project. Public comment Nelson Vega, property owner asked if an analysis was being done of what the sales tax receipts are going to be to the City and are they going to accurate because they were not accurate for the Fremont/Broadway project. He feels that the citizens and the business owners of Seaside who pay taxes should know that answer before the City Council/Redevelopment Agency commit to this project. End public comment MSC Bloomer, Jordan RESOLVE that the City Council/Redevelopment Agency accepts staff’s recommendation of Clark Realty Capital, LLC-General Growth Properties, Inc. as the preferred candidate for the Seaside Main Gate Project. Mayor/Chairman Rubio explained that this project is different from the Fremont/Broadway project – the City owns the property and there are no buildings to demolish. Council Member Choates suggested that it be specified in the ENRA the types of businesses that will go into the project area and that the City needs to conduct a team building session with Clark General. AYES 4 Appropriation of Redevelopment Agency Funds to Upgrade General Jim Moore Boulevard Streetlights. Tim O’Halloran, Senior Civil Engineer explained that the purpose of this item is to request that the Agency Board appropriate $235,082 to the Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) General Jim Moore Boulevard Project in order to upgrade the proposed streetlights from the FORA Standard to an architectural type streetlight. This project is under construction and FORA is in the process of reviewing and approving submittals for this project. It is the policy of FORA to include only minimal landscaping, irrigation and architectural upgrades such as lighting in its CIP projects. Anything desired by the local agency over and above these FORA standards are the responsibility of the local jurisdiction to arrange and compensate FORA for the additional expense.

OLD BUSINESS – Continued The standard lighting feature that FORA provided in their capital program is the galvanized steel poles with the Cobra head type lighting fixture; this light fixture is similar to the ones used by Caltrans on the State Highway. Discussions between City staff, FORA staff, and Seaside Resort representatives determined that architectural lighting should be included in this project since the project fronts the Seaside Resort Development. The Agency Board discussed in detail the need for the City to start collecting improvements fees from the developer of the various projects that are currently occurring in the City. There was concern expressed regarding the consistency of the streetlights; it was noted that they should be same as on Second Avenue. MSC Jordan, Bloomer RESOLVE that the Agency Board approves the Appropriation of Redevelopment Agency Funds to Upgrade General Jim Moore Boulevard Streetlights in an amount of $235,082. AYES 4 CLOSED SESSION As permitted by Government Code Section 54956 et. seq. of the State of California the City Council/Redevelopment may adjourn to Closed Session to consider specific matters dealing with personnel and/or pending possible litigation and/or conferring with the City Council’s/Redevelopment Agency’s Meyers-Milias-Brown Act Representative.
