Report
COUNCIL PILLAR
Promote and Enhance Economic, Housing and Transportation Development

BACKGROUND
On June 15, 2021, City Council approved the Rezoning, Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND), and Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program (MMRP) for the Coresite SV9 Data Center (Project) at 2905 Stender Way (Property). Coresite (Owner) is currently in the process of constructing the Project, which includes a 250,000 square-foot 4-story data center, a new substation, equipment yards and onsite improvements.

DISCUSSION
Due to the redevelopment of the Property, the existing underground electric easement and emergency access easement encumbering the Property has been relocated or determined to be excess, and these easements are no longer necessary. The Owner has requested that the City vacate the subject easements to clear these unnecessary encumbrances on the Property. Any relevant facilities previously within said easements have been removed or abandoned. Silicon Valley Power and the Fire Department, the only agencies having an interest in the easements, concur that these easements are eligible to be vacated. Staff has reviewed this proposal and found that these easements are no longer necessary for public purposes and therefore recommend that they be vacated according to subsection C of California Streets and Highways Code Section 8333.

ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW
The potential environmental impacts of the Project are addressed in the MND and MMRP that were approved by the City Council on June 15, 2021.

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, Silicon Valley Power, and the Fire Department.
