1. Ordinances for Introduction

a. Ordinance 2005-37
An Ordinance Creating Local Improvement District No. 92 Of The City And Borough; Finding That Such Local Improvement District Is In The Public Interest; Setting The Boundaries Of Such Local Improvement District; And Providing For The Improvements To Be Acquired, Constructed And Installed, Consisting Of Pavement, Curb, Gutter, Sidewalk, Storm Drainage And Street Lighting On Greenwood Avenue.

This ordinance creates LID No. 92 for the purpose of roadway reconstruction, asphalt paving, curb, gutter, sidewalk, storm drainage and street lighting system. Residential water service extensions, sewer service connections, adjusting sewer manholes, relocating fire hydrants, adjusting water main valves, concrete retaining wall, relocating electrical utilities, topsoil, hydro-seeding, and miscellaneous other work. The additive alternate work consists of an 8-inch sanitary sewer main, 8-inch ductile iron water main, sanitary sewer services, water services, sewer manholes and construction surveying. As requested by the neighborhood working group, included in the proposed project are north end drainage improvements and north end road or driveway extension, serving the property owners within the Greenwood Subdivision boundary. The proposed assessment per lot is outlined in the Assessment Roll.

An informal poll was conducted of the 38 property owners in this LID area. 28 responses were received. The total property assessment is $290,952. Of that amount, property owners representing $214,848.90 voted in favor, and property owners representing $0.00 voted against.

Following introduction of this ordinance, notice will be published in the newspaper and sent to residents in the LID area regarding the opportunities for submitting written comments and of the public hearing set by the Assembly.

At this hearing, the Assembly shall hear objections from any owner affected by the formation of the district and may make changes in the proposed boundaries or in the plans for the proposed improvements. The Assembly may not change the boundaries of the district to include property not previously included without first giving new notice to owners in the manner and form and within the time provided for the original notice.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the December 19, 2005 regular Assembly meeting.

VIII. PUBLIC HEARING

A. Ordinance 2005-45    Map
An Ordinance Authorizing the Port Director to Negotiate and Execute a Lease of Approximately 2,989.03 Square Feet of Tidelands Located Within Lot 9B, Block 83 of the Tidelands Addition to the City of Juneau, for Development of a Retail Commercial Building.

This ordinance authorizes the Port Director to negotiate and execute a lease with Boudewijn Roeland and Hendrika Flamee for approximately 2,989 square feet of CBJ tidelands within the Tidelands Addition of the City of Juneau. The lease area is shown on Exhibit “A” to the ordinance. Mr. Roeland and Ms. Flamee are the owners of Lot 10, Block 83 of the Tidelands Addition, which is located immediately adjacent to the property to be leased. They intend to use Lot 10 and the leased property for the development of a retail commercial building, commonly known as Miner’s Hall.

The lease proposal was reviewed by the Docks and Harbor Board at its meeting on October 27, and the board recommended approval by the Assembly. The main issue discussed by the board was the lease rent. The board considered an appraisal prepared by Kim Wold of Alaska Appraisal Associates and determined that an appropriate lease rental rate for the first five years would be $15,000 per year, or about $5.00 per square foot. This lease amount is 4 percent of the market value of the property, applied annually, and that percentage is based on the rate of return for 5-year U.S. Treasury bonds. The appraisal suggested 8 percent based on other government lease rates in Alaska, but the board determined that percentage was too high. Ms. Flamee, on the other hand, believes that $2.00 per square foot is a fair market price for the lease rent.

Also note that a portion of the seawalk will be located immediately seaward of the leased property. The lessees are required to grant the CBJ any required easements within the leased property for construction of the seawalk, provided that construction shall not interfere with their ability to immediately pursue an approved development plan.

I recommend this ordinance be adopted.
