Background: As part of an agreement with the city of Alameda, seven acres of land is to be transferred to the District in the former Naval Air Station East Housing Area. The land is a potential school site for the Bayport housing development.
The contractor currently has a Right of Entry Agreement with the city of Alameda, the current owner of the land, which allows them to enter the land for certain stated purposes. This agreement would terminate if the city no longer own the property.
The city of Alameda has specified as a requirement prior to executing the Quit Claim Deed giving Alameda Unified School District ownership of the property that a Right of Entry be concluded with the infrastructure contractor.
It is a "Right of Entry" for Catellus/Warmington to enter the property for certain specific purposes which are outlined in the agreement. Basically they are to level out the land to final grade (almost complete) and to provide utility "stub outs" for the utilities for the potential school.
The utility portion entails a fifteen foot strip on the three street sides of the property.
The Board approved agreement.
