Memo from City Manager to City Council Regarding Approving Amendment # 2 to the Memorandum of Agreement between ARRA and the United States Navy for the Economic Development Conveyance of Portions of the Former NAS, January 4, 2012


As part of the process to attract the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) Second
Campus to Alameda Point, Alameda Reuse and Redevelopment Authority (ARRA) staff
and ARRA's private development partner, Alameda Point Lab Partners (APLP), met
with staff from the Department of the Navy (Navy) in San Diego on Thursday, June 16
2011 , to request a no-cost conveyance of the proposed 45-acre LBNL site at Alameda
Point. Alameda Point consists of 918 acres of the former Naval Air Station Alameda
(NAS Alameda). The ARRA's request was made pursuant to the NAS Alameda
Community Reuse Plan (Reuse Plan) adopted in 1996 (Exhibit 1), and the ARRA and
Navy Economic Development Conveyance (EDC) Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)
executed in 2000 , as amended (Exhibit 2). The EDC MOA authorized a no-cost
conveyance of major portions of the former NAS Alameda property, including Alameda
Point and Bayport, to the ARRA consistent with the Reuse Plan. (The property to be
conveyed to ARRA shall be referred to as the "EDC Property.")
