EXTENSION TO LEASE AGREEMENTS WITH NEW CINGULAR
WIRELESS ASSOCIATED WITH TH: ~ONOPOLEAT CITY HALL
CAROLYN lEHR, CITY MANAGER~
Approve the Second Amendment to the Lease Agreement with New Cingular Wireless to
extend the term of the agreement to June 30,2014.
Verizon Wireless owns the telecommunications monopole located at City Hall. In
February 1998, the City entered into a 20-year lease agreement with Verizon Wireless
(then PacTel Cellular) for the area where the pole is located, as well as space inside the
two-story City Hall building for its support equipment. In November 1988, the City
entered into a similar 20-year lease with New Cingular Wireless (then L.A. Cellular) to colocate
on the monopole and to install an equipment building behind the two-story City
Hall building. Southern California Edison co-located on the tower in 1994 and has
leased equipment space inside the City Hall building.
In 2008, at the end of the initial 20 year terms, the Council extended both Verizon's and
New Cingular's leases to June 30, 2009, in order to be contemporaneous with Edison's
lease, which was due to expire on the same date. However, Edison had one remaining
option to extend its original lease for an additional five years, which it exercised in
January this year, thereby extending its lease to June 30, 2014.
On June 16, 2009, City Council granted a lease extension to Verizon Wireless for one
additional five-year period until June 30,2014. New Cingular Wireless has submitted a
similar request to extend its lease to the same date. If granted by the City, this action will
automatically extend the associated Conditional Use Permits to the same date. Staff
recommends approval of the request for the following reasons:
1. All three leases associated with the monopole at City Hall will have the same
expiration date; thereby simplifying tracking and management of the lease

agreements associated with this facility.
2. The existing lease with New Cingular Wireless acknowledge the potential
redevelopment of the City's property for the construction of a new Civic Center
and include provisions to relocation of the monopole to accommodate that
redevelopment, if necessary (see attached).
3. The proposed amendment includes a provision that would allow either party to
terminate the lease during the lease extension term by providing written notice at
least ninety (90) days prior to July 1, 2010 or any July 1 5t thereafter
The current lease generates approximately $35,000 in General fund revenue in FY 08
09. Extension of the lease agreement for an additional five years will keep this revenue
source intact during that period of time. The annual lease rate is adjusted each year by a
formula based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

to complete construction within 18 months following the
commencement date of this Lese shall, at LESSOR's election
exercised by notice, terminate this Lese. All work shall be
performed in a good and workmanlike manner, shall SUbstantially
comply with plans and specifications submitted to LESSOR as
required by this Lease, and shall comply with all applicable
governmental permits, laws, ordinances, and regulations.
E. with the consent of Los Angeles SMSA Limited
Partnership, LESSEE will co-locate on PacTel's eighty foot (80')
tall unguyed utility pole with required antennae. Any additional
construction (or the erection of any additional antennae) by
LESSEE will require the prior written approval of LESSOR, which
approval will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
(1) As a co-tenant on the antennae pole it -;:-l
understood and agreed that the LESSOR has plans to redevel~; \
LESSOR's Property, and in connection therewith, LESSOR may
construct a new civic Center at LESSOR's Property. In the event
a new Civic Center is constructed at LESSOR's Property, LESSEE
agrees that LESSOR may require LESSEE to relocate the Prgperty to
other locations on LESSOR's Property. Such relocation shall
inclUde relocation of the easements for access to LESSEE's
antenna, relocation of the equipment used by LESSEE in connection
with operation of the antenna, and relocation of the antenna
itself. LESSEE has advised LESSOR that any location of the
antenna on LESSOr's Property is equally suitable for LESSEE I S
purposes as the existing location of the antenna, so long as
LESSEE continues to have reasonable access to the antenna and
related equipment and so long as the antenna continues to have
the same elevation above sea level, and LESSEE has acknowledged
and agreed that LESSOR has a significant interest in minimizing
the impact of the antenna on the aesthetics of LESSOR's Property.
Therefore, LESSEE has agreed that LESSOR shall have complete and
absolute discretion as to the determination of the new locations
for the Property, inclUding the antenna, in the event of such
redevelopment of LESSOR's Property; provided, however, LESSOR
agrees that LESSEE shall continue to have reasonable access to
the antenna and related equipment and that the antenna shall
continue to have the same elevation above sea level. LESSEE also
agrees that it shall cause such relocation to be accomplished
within sixty (60) days after LESSEE receives written notice from
LESSOR to cause such relocation. LESSOR agrees that it shall
cooperate with LESSEE so that any relocation may be accomplished
without interruption of LESSEE's telephone service to the pUblic.
LESSEE further agrees that any and all costs attributable to such
relocation shall be borne and paid for by LESSEE.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, LESSOR agrees that in the event
LESSOR .requires LESSEE to relocate its antenna as provided
hereunder, LESSEE shall have the option of terminating this Lease
by providing LESSOR with written notice of its election to do so
prior to the date LESSOR requires LESSEE to complete the
relocation of the Property.
With respect to this paragraph it shall not be unreasonable
for LESSOR to refuse to consent to new construction or the
erection of an additional antenna on the Property if LESSOR
\ e~termines that such new construction or additional antenna shafi \
~ve a negative impact upon the aesthetics of LESSOR's propert~
(2) LESSOR and LESSEE have discussed at length the
LESSOR's interest in making LESSEE's cellular telephone service
available to the public While at the same time preserving the
aesthetics of the civic Center area. Therefore, LESSEE agrees
that it shall cooperate at LESSEE's sole cost and expense with
any reasonable requests by LESSOR to camouflage LESSEE's antenna
in the initial installation thereof on the Property, to the end
that its impact on the aesthetics of the Civic Center shall be
minimized. LESSEE and LESSOR also agree that after the first
five (5) years of the term, LESSEE's conditional use permit may
be reviewed annually by LESSOR for the purpose of determining
