ITEMS OF INTEREST

• CITY COUNCIL CONSIDERS NEW REDEVELOPMENT LEGISLATION

Governor Brown has now signed two bills addressing redevelopment that will significantly

modify the California Community Redevelopment Law (the "CRL"). These include ABx1

2


Administrative Report

July 15, 2011

Page 3 of 8

26(the "Dissolution Act") and ABx1 27 (the "Voluntary Program Act". The Pinole City Council

held a special meeting on July 12 to discuss both bills and the overall financial impact that the

bills will have on our Redevelopment Agency.

Basically, the City Council acting as the Executive Board, is now faced with the decision of

either “opting out” of redevelopment or “Pay to Play” to continue to operate the Agency over

the next 7 years when the project areas conclude.

The California Redevelopment Association is planning on filing a law suit against the State of

California challenging these bills.

“Opting Out”

ABx1 26 or the Dissolution Act immediately suspends all new Redevelopment activities and

incurrence of indebtedness and dissolves Redevelopment agencies ("RDAs") effective

October 1, 2011.

ABx1 26 also creates successor agencies and oversight boards to continue to address

enforceable obligations of an Agency , administer the dissolution and wind down of each

dissolved RDA, as well as establishes roles for the County-Auditor Controller, the Department

of Finance and the State Controller’s Office in the dissolution process and satisfaction of

enforceable obligations of former RDAs.

If the Agency decides to “opt out”, then the Agency among other things could no longer:

• Incur new indebtedness or other obligations;

• Restructure existing indebtedness and other obligations;

• Make loans or grants;

• Enter into contracts;

• Amend existing agreements, obligations or commitments; or

• Renew or extend leases or other agreements;

• Approve any program, project or expenditure;

“Pay to Play”

AB x 1 27 or the Voluntary Program Act then allows RDAs to avoid dissolution under the

Dissolution Act by opting into an "alternative voluntary redevelopment program" requiring

specific annual contributions to local school and special districts. Our share of the payment is

estimated to be $2,668,000 to be paid from redevelopment.

This payment must be made to the County Auditor-Controller beginning in FY 2011-2012 and

in all succeeding years the RDA's redevelopment program continues to operate. To avoid

dissolution, by November 1, 2011, the Pinole Redevelopment Agency must enact an

ordinance prior to October 1, 2011 that states we agree to comply with the Voluntary

Program, make the payment, and notify the Department of Finance, the State Controller and

the County Auditor-Controller that we will comply with the rules set out in the Voluntary

Program.

Administrative Report

July 15, 2011

Page 4 of 8

Once a Sponsoring Community enacts the appropriate opt-in ordinance, its RDA will no

longer be subject to the provisions of the Dissolution Act and may immediately recommence

normal redevelopment activities under the CRL,

At a Special Meeting held last Tuesday Night (July 12 th ), the Finance Director presented

information regarding the financial impacts of this policy decision. Because the elimination

legislation restricts the amount of Agency’s liquidation payments back to the City to only 19%

of the value of the Agency’s assets and future income streams (the remaining 81% being

disbursed to local schools and the County) there is significant financial advantage ($47

million versus $20 million) for Pinole to select the “Pay to Play” option. Considering our

Agency’s:

• substantial ($23 million) investment in commercial real estate holdings,

• the current ($500 thousand/year) and anticipated (additional $500 thousand/year)

incomes generated by ground lease payments from completed projects (shopping

centers and assisted living center), and

• repayments of outstanding development loans ($250 thousand/year)

There is about a 2.5 to 1 financial benefit from retaining rather than dissolving Pinole’s

Redevelopment Agency.

The Pinole City Council will have this issue before them on the July 19 City Council agenda.

Staff is recommending that we move ahead under the “Pay to Play” option as the return to

the community is far greater than the dissolution of the Agency will bring back.

• SUMMER SOUNDS IN THE PARK

Summer Sounds in the Park kicked off with the Stairwell Sisters on Thursday, July 7 and

continues through July. Come hear bands showcasing a variety of musical styles and

talents. Residents and neighbors are encouraged to stroll through Pinole Old Town and

explore the myriad of shops and restaurants. The series continues through July 28 and is

always on Thursday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

July 14 Big Cat Entertainment Blues and Soul

July 21 Vocal-ease Music of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s

July 28 Jun Simundo Band Country

Outdoor Cinema will begin August 5 with four showings through the end of August.

• FORECLOSURE ASSISTANCE

The California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA) is overseeing a $2 billion federally-funded

program that began early this year and is providing up to $50,000 (per household) in financial

assistance to California residents who have fallen on hard times and are in danger of losing

their homes to foreclosure. The program is available to low and moderate income

households, which the program defines as Contra Costa County households who earn

$110,750 or less. Learn more about the assistance opportunities at the CalHFA website:

• MOVING FORWARD WITH RETENANTING THE OLD BANK OF PINOLE

BUILDING

In June, the City issued a request for proposals (RFP) seeking proposals to select qualified

Real Estate Brokerage firms to interview for a professional services contract to assist in the

lease process for the Old Bank of Pinole building. This City-owned commercial space is

located at 2361 San Pablo Avenue and was most recently occupied by the Flower Cart. The

selected firm will be responsible for assisting the City with retenanting the building, providing

services such as local commercial real estate market analysis, property marketing, pro forma

analysis of potential tenants, and assistance with lease negotiation.

The deadline for responses to the RFP was Monday, July 11, 2011. The City received three

responses from commercial real estate brokers, including Tom Southern of Cornish & Carey,

Corey Lawrence of Cushman & Wakefield, and Deborah Perry of Grubb & Ellis. Staff is

currently reviewing the proposals and a panel will interview the brokers in the coming weeks.

We hope to bring a recommendation to City Council to select a broker in late August. We are

excited to bring a new business to Old Town in the coming months!

• A JOB WELL DONE AND RECOGNIZED

The City received notification that one of our employees, Patrick Bowie went beyond the call

a duty this week assisting a resident who had lost their keys. Apparently, a resident using the

Pinole Creek Trail dropped their keys and a passerby gave them to Patrick trying to locate

the rightful owner. Patrick went beyond his job description in notifying and then presenting the

keys to their grateful owner. Those of us who know Patrick are not surprised that Patrick did

the right thing when no one is looking; he always does, however, it is nice when someone

takes the time to say thank you in such a public way.

• CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS REQUIRED EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2011

As of July 1, 2011 the Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act (Senate Bill - SB 183 will

require all single-family homes with an attached garage or a fossil fuel source to install

carbon monoxide detectors within the home by July 1, 2011. Owners of multi-family leased or

rental dwellings, such as apartment buildings, have until January 1, 2013 to comply with the

law.

Community members should know the symptoms of CO poisoning. At moderate levels, you

or your family can get severe headaches, become dizzy, mentally confused, nauseated, or

faint. You can even die if these levels persist for a long time. Low levels can cause shortness

of breath, mild nausea, and mild headaches, and may have longer term effects on your

health.

If you experience symptoms that you think could be from CO poisoning:

• CALL 911 or your local emergency number.

• GET FRESH AIR IMMEDIATELY. Open doors and windows, turn off combustion

appliances and leave the house.

• DO NOT re-enter the premises until cleared by emergency personnel.

As an example, the Pinole Fire Department recently responded with Richmond and Contra

Costa Fire to a fire in an apartment building with fire sprinklers at 2:00 am. Two occupants

were rescued and treated for smoke inhalation, even though the sprinkler system

extinguished the fire.

The occupants were never alerted by a smoke alarm. It was discovered that the property

managers of the complex had replaced all of the dwelling unit smoke alarms with carbon

monoxide detectors per their understanding of the new regulations. Unfortunately, the

replacement devices are for carbon monoxide detection only; they were not the combination

units for detecting both carbon monoxide and smoke!

The Pinole Fire Department recommends that residents should have both a State Fire

Marshal’s Office listed smoke alarm AND a carbon monoxide alarm OR a combination

smoke alarm/carbon monoxide alarm. Attached to this report are some flyers that detail

additional information that will be helpful.

• PINOLE YOUTH CENTER 10 TH ANNIVERSARY GALA – NOV. 4 TH

Next month, the Pinole Youth Center officially turns 10 years old! To celebrate, the Pinole

Youth Foundation is planning a PYC 10 th Anniversary Gala on Friday, November 4 th at the

Senior Center. This will be an exciting community event with more details to come. We are

hosting a Silent Auction and while we already have connections to several large ticket items,

we’re looking for more items and are asking everyone’s help to find them. Ask your

employer, your favorite restaurant or business, your friends and family. Talk about it to

anyone you can think of and brainstorm ideas and connections. You can even donate

something that’s taking up space in your garage – as long as it’s new. All donations are taxdeductible.

Here’s a few ideas…

• Gift certificates from local restaurants, businesses (florist, nursery, jeweler, spa,

photographer, etc.)

• Themed baskets: cooking, flowers, plants/gardening, bakery, food, baby items,

family fun box (games, snacks, DVDs, etc.)

• Gift certificates for interesting classes

• Small but fancy appliances such as an espresso machine

• Gift certificate for a cookie-of-the-month or dessert-of-the month

• Free tax preparation (up to a certain value)

“GIVE NEIGHBORHOOD CRIME AND DRUGS A GOING AWAY PARTY”

What is National Night Out?

National Night Out (NNO) is a crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of

Town Watch and cosponsored locally by the Pinole Police Department. It will involve over 9,500 communities

from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 32 million

people are expected to participate in America’s Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday, August 2, 2011.

National Night Out is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for,

and participation in, local anticrime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community

partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting

back.

How can our neighborhoods participate in this year’s National Night Out?

From 7 to 10 P.M. on August 2nd, residents in neighborhoods throughout Pinole and across the nation, are

asked to turn on outside lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.

Many neighborhoods throughout Pinole will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties,

cookouts, parades, visits from police, flashlight walks, contests and youth activities.

When should we begin organizing?

As soon as possible. The best National Night Out programs are those that begin their planning well in advance

of the event.

Is National Night Out just for already established Neighborhood Watch areas?

NO!! National Night Out is for all blocks and neighborhoods in our community.

Can we begin our activities earlier than 7 P.M.?

Certainly. The 7 to 10 P.M listed hours are a suggested national timeframe. Tailor the day/night to best

accommodate your neighborhood. Early starts are fine. Late starts (past 7 P.M.) though can be a problem

because residents will have already settled into other evening activities.


The sun does not set in our area until close to 9 P.M. Does that matter?

No. The fact that the sun does not set until a particular time should not affect the scheduling of your activities.

The illumination of porch lights is symbolic. They can be on at 7 or 8 P.M regardless of whether or not

darkness has fallen.

Should we register our neighborhood event with the police?

Yes. The Pinole Police would like to know about the size and scope of your event. If possible, they will also

try to have representatives from the police stop by and visit your event. So register early.

(You can contact the National Association of Town Watch at their site www.natw.org.)

Carbon Monoxide Alarms

You CAN’T see or smell Carbon Monoxide,

but it CAN Kill...

As of July 1, 2011 the Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act (Senate

Bill - SB 183 will require all single-family homes with an attached garage

or a fossil fuel source to install carbon monoxide detectors within the home

by July 1, 2011. Owners of multi-family leased or rental dwellings, such as

apartment buildngs, have until January 1, 2013 to comply with the law.

Carbon Monoxide Can Be Deadly

You can’t see or smell carbon monoxide, but at high levels it can kill a person in minutes.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is produced whenever any fuel such as gas, oil, kerosene, wood,

or charcoal is burned. If appliances that burn fuel are maintained and used properly, the

amount of CO produced is usually not hazardous. However, if appliances are not working

properly or are used incorrectly, dangerous levels of CO can result. Hundreds of people die

accidentally every year from CO poisoning caused by malfunctioning or improperly used

fuel-burning appliances. Even more die from CO produced by idling cars. Fetuses, infants,

elderly people, and people with anemia or with a history of heart or respiratory disease can

be especially susceptible. Be safe. Practice the DO’s and DON’Ts of carbon monoxide.

CO Poisoning Symptoms

Know the symptoms of CO poisoning. At moderate

levels, you or your family can get severe

headaches, become dizzy, mentally confused,

nauseated, or faint. You can even die if these levels

persist for a long time. Low levels can cause shortness

of breath, mild nausea, and mild headaches,

and may have longer term effects on your health.

Since many of these symptoms are similar to those

of the flu, food poisoning, or other illnesses, you

may not think that CO poisoning could be the

cause.

Prevent CO Poisoning

Play it Safe - If you experience symptoms that you think could be from CO poisoning:

• CALL 911 or your local emergency number.

• GET FRESH AIR IMMEDIATELY. Open doors and windows, turn off combustion

appliances and leave the house.

• DO NOT re-enter the premises until cleared by emergency personnel.

• GO TO AN EMERGENCY ROOM and tell the physician you suspect CO poisoning.

If CO poisoning has occurred, it can often be diagnosed by a blood test done soon

after exposure.


Safety Tips

Follow these guidelines to help keep your family safer.

• Install CO alarms outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home including the basement. The CO

alarm can warn you if too much CO is in your home.

• Keep CO alarms clear of dust and debris.

• Ensure CO alarms are plugged all the way into a working outlet, or if battery operated, have working batteries.

Prevention is the Key to Avoiding Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

DO have your fuel-burning appliances -- including oil

and gas furnaces, gas water heaters, gas ranges and ovens, gas

dryers, gas or kerosene space heaters, fireplaces, and wood

stoves - inspected by a trained professional at the beginning

of every heating season. Make certain that the flues and

chimneys are connected, in good condition, and not blocked.

DO choose appliances that vent their fumes to the

outside whenever possible, have them properly installed, and

maintain them according to manufacturers’ instructions.

DO read and follow all of the instructions that accompany

any fuel-burning device. If you cannot avoid using an

unvented gas or kerosene space heater, carefully follow the cautions that come with the device and keep doors to

the rest of the house open. Crack a window to ensure enough air for ventilation and proper fuel-burning.

DON’T idle the car in a garage -- even if the garage door to the outside is open. Fumes can build up very

quickly in the garage and living area of your home.

DON’T use a gas oven to heat your home, even for a short time.

DON’T ever use a charcoal grill indoors -- even in a fireplace.

DON’T sleep in any room with an unvented gas or kerosene space heater.

DON’T use any gasoline-powered engines (mowers, weed trimmers, snow blowers, chain saws, small engines

or generators) in enclosed spaces.

DON’T ignore symptoms, particularly if more than one person is feeling them. You could lose consciousness

and die if you do nothing.
