San Juan Oaks Development Agreement
With San Juan Oaks and Del Webb moving ahead on a senior development at the golf club’s property off Union Road, San Juan Oaks is agreeing to pay the county an additional $500,000 in exchange for an extended fee vesting time period, if it decides to exercise that option for an extension. In addition, San Juan Oaks has agreed to pay the entire amount of the Community Benefit Fee, in the amount of $6,059,000 if the option is exercised, upon obtaining the first building permit or by March 31, 2021 whichever occurs first.
The first component of the development project consists of an “active-adult community” (age-restricted to 55 years and older) including 1,017 single-family residences on approximately 176 acres and an approximately 17,500 to 25,000 square foot amenity center on approximately 10 acres. The second component would consist of 67 conventional (non-age restricted) single-family residential units, an up to 200-room resort hotel on approximately 35 acres, up to 65,000 square foot neighborhood commercial center on 14 acres, an approximately four-acre assisted living/skilled nursing/memory care facility with up to 100 beds.
Disaster funding requests
According to the agenda: While the Office of Emergency Services coordinates the response to any and all types of hazards and threats, it lacks the ability to effectively accept and manage monetary donations from members of the public. The Community Foundation for San Benito County, however, is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to granting monies to a variety of local causes and nonprofits. In the event of a disaster, the Community Foundation for San Benito County has the ability to receive monetary donations and distribute them to the causes and nonprofits that are the most appropriate to meet the needs of San Benito County residents throughout disaster response and recovery. Through this MOU, the parties are able build upon the already existing relationship and work together to ensure that disaster response is effective and appropriate.
In addition in a separate resolution: The Office of Emergency Services (OES) is seeking approval from your Board to apply for FY 2018 California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP), and Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG).
