REPORT TO COUNCIL

SUBJECT

Title

Action on a Resolution Ordering the Vacation of Underground Electric Easement at 2861 Scott Boulevard [Council Pillar: Promote and Enhance Economic and Housing Development]

 

Report

BACKGROUND

On April 17, 2019, Roche Molecular Systems, Inc. (Owner) applied for a Building Permit for tenant improvements at 2861 Scott Boulevard (Property). The tenant improvements included installing a new electric transformer and removing the existing electric transformer.

 

DISCUSSION

Due to the tenant improvements, the existing Underground Electric Easement encumbering the Property has been relocated, and this easement is no longer necessary. The Owner has requested that the City vacate the subject easement to clear this unnecessary encumbrance on the Property. Silicon Valley Power, the only agency having an interest in said easement concurs that the easement is eligible to be vacated. Staff has reviewed this proposal and found that this easement is no longer necessary for public purposes and may be vacated according to subsection C of California Streets and Highways Code Section 8333.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW

The action being considered is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA") pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15301, Existing Facilities.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

There is no additional cost to the City other than staff time and expense.

 

COORDINATION

This report has been coordinated with the City Attorney’s Office and Silicon Valley Power (Electric Department).
