SUMMARY STATEMENT:

On June 1, 2015 the City Council approved Resolution #15-21 authorizing the negotiated land sale of Lot 2, ASLS 0098 to Brad and Maureen Kimberlin. This property is located just outside the State right-of-way at the corner of the Richardson Highway and Loop Road.  The Kimberlins wish to develop the property as a boat repair facility.

The sale included some conditions, including the requirement that the applicant obtain a 404 Wetlands Permit from the US Army Corps of Engineers and obtain a Conditional Use Permit from the Planning & Zoning Commission for the intended use of boat repair.

Section 4.04.080 of the Valdez Municipal Code requires land sales to be effectuated within one year of the date of approval. The one year deadline was June 1, 2016. If this date is not met, the resolution authorizing the land sale automatically expires.

The time necessary for Mr. Kimberlin to obtain the required permitting, and for the City to obtain an appraisal (which was just completed on Friday, June 24th), took longer than expected.

Mr. Kimberlin and the City have been moving forward in good faith to address all conditions of the sale. Unfortunately, the clock ran out. Mr. Kimberlin and staff are requesting re-authorization of the land sale with the same conditions as were originally outlined. A copy of the original agenda statement and authorizing resolution are attached for reference.

Although the appraisal is complete, both the applicant and City staff have some concerns which are being addressed with the appraiser; the results of which will be shared with the Council. The appraiser listed the value at $140,000.Administration recommends approval of this resolution.
