The Alameda Reuse and Redevelopment Authority (ARRA) and the Department of the Navy (Navy) entered into an Economic Development Conveyance Memorandum of Agreement (EDC MOA) in 2000, which authorized a no-cost conveyance of major portions of the former Naval Air Station Alameda (NAS Alameda) property, including Alameda Point and Bayport, to the ARRA, consistent with the NAS Alameda Community Reuse Plan (Reuse Plan) adopted in 1996. The ARRA and Navy entered into Amendment No. 2 to the EDC MOA on January 4, 2012 that re-commits the ARRA and Navy to the Reuse Plan. On February 7, 2012 the City of Alameda accepted a transfer of all of the ARRA’s rights, obligations and assets, including the EDC MOA. The United States Office of Economic Adjustment, on behalf of the Secretary of Defense, recognized the City as the official Local Reuse Authority on March 9, 2012. Pursuant to these agreements, phase 1 conveyance of approximately 1,379 acres, including 509 acres of land and 870 acres of submerged land of the Alameda Point property was conveyed from the Navy to the City in June 2013 (Phase 1 Conveyance); a second phase of land was transferred from the Navy to the City in April 2016, consisting of 183 acres (Phase 2 Conveyance) (Exhibit 1); and a small third conveyance of 2.6-acres in April 2017 (Phase 3A Conveyance).

As depicted in Exhibit 1, it is currently anticipated that there will be subsequent future conveyances. This evening staff is recommending approval of a conveyance of 42 acres from the Navy to the City (Phase 3B Conveyance) (Exhibit 1). The conveyance primarily includes land along the western portion of the taxiways and streets in the adaptive reuse area.
