On Tuesday, July 23rd, General Services staff presented information on a preliminary step of the Chanate surplus sale process to the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. After outlining the Surplus Act criteria used to judge the proposals, staff recommended that the Board:
A. Authorize General Services to issue a Notice of Intent to Award to California Community Housing Agency (CalCHA) as the successful proposer under the Surplus Property Notice issued on February 19, 2019, and release all other proposals.
B. Delegate authority to the County Administrator, or designee, and the Director of General Services to negotiate and execute an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement, in a form approved by County Counsel, to enter a Purchase and Sale Agreement with CalCHA consistent with the terms and conditions as described in the Term Sheet.
C. Direct staff to return to the Board with a Purchase and Sale Agreement for the sale of the Chanate Campus to CalCHA pursuant to the California Surplus Property Act.
The Board elected to continue the conversation, and vote at the next meeting of the Board on August 6, 2019. “The community has demonstrated their commitment to staying engaged in the process of selling the property,” recognized Supervisor Zane. “Moving the vote to August 6th allows residents two additional weeks to learn about the bidders and stay informed every step of the way.”
Residents can learn more about the bids on the surplus property sale on the General Services web page:https://sonomacounty.ca.gov/General-Services/Facilities-Development-and-Management/Groups/Planning-Group/Chanate-Campus/
The 71-acre Campus includes 17 buildings built between 1936 and 1994 that are now mostly vacant. The property also includes a historic cemetery. The property is adjacent to the 26-acre Piner Creek Flood Control Reservoir owned by the Sonoma County Water Agency, nine acres of land along Paulin Creek owned by Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District, and includes Parcel J with nine acres of land dedicated for public access and use. These parcels are not included in the sale.
