Staff Summary: For many years Joost and the City have owned adjacent properties at the west terminus of Ash Canyon Road. The Board of Supervisors recently approved the City purchase of 29.75 acres of land from Joost in the Fall of 2011 in order accommodate construction of a new tank access road and flood control facilities. That purchase agreement (recorded doc. #415236) included a provision that the City and Joost would cooperate in the future in negotiating a mutually beneficial lot line adjustment to accomplish the transfer of City ultimate ownership of the tank access road. The City completed construction of the new tank access road and flood control facilities in the Spring of 2012, with a portion of the improvements being located on Joost property. Staff is recommending approval of the proposed land exchange agreement in order to achieve the desired intent of full City ownership of the tank access road and flood control facilities. The proposed agreement would exchange a 1.50 acre strip of land owned by the City for a 2.90 acre strip of land owned by Joost. An appraisal was prepared by Johnson-Perkins and Associates and the value of the 1.50 acres was determined to be $26,250 compared with the value of the 2.90 acres at $50,750. Joost has agreed to donate to the City the difference in value of the two strips of land, resulting in a $24,500 benefit to the City. No money would exchange hands as a result of the proposed transaction.
