LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1828, as introduced, Bonilla. Land use: Concord Naval Weapons Revise Authority.
The Fort Ord Reuse Authority Act authorizes the County of Monterey and specified cities within that county to establish the Fort Ord Reuse Authority to, among other things, plan for, finance, and manage the transition of the property known as Fort Ord from military to civilian use.
This bill would authorize Contra Costa County and the City of Concord to establish the Concord Naval Weapons Station Reuse Authority to plan for, finance, and manage the transition of the property formerly known as the Concord Naval Weapons Station from military to civilian use.
This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the County of Contra Costa.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Title 7.84 (commencing with Section 67645) is added to the Government Code, to read:

TITLE 7.84. CONCORD NAVAL WEAPONS STATION REUSE AUTHORITY

67645.
 This title shall be known and may be cited as the Concord Naval Weapons Station Reuse Authority Act.

67645.1.
 The Legislature hereby finds and declares the following goals to be the policy of the state of California:
(a) To facilitate the transfer and reuse of the real and other property comprising the military reservation known as the Concord Naval Weapons Station with all practical speed.
(b) To minimize the disruption caused by the base’s closure on the civilian economy and the people of Contra Costa County and the bay area.
(c) To provide for the reuse and development of the base area in ways that enhance the economy and quality of life of the Contra Costa County and bay area community.
(d) To maintain and protect the unique environmental resources of the area.

67645.2.
 The Legislature finds and declares as follows:
(a) The policy set forth in Section 67645.1 is most likely to be achieved if an effective governmental structure exists to plan for, finance, and carry out the transfer and reuse of the base in a cooperative, coordinated, balanced, and decisive manner.
(b) Contra Costa County and the City of Concord have requested the Legislature to establish a governmental structure for the Concord Naval Weapons Station.

67645.5.
 Contra Costa County and the City of Concord may establish the Concord Naval Weapons Station Reuse Authority upon the adoption of resolutions favoring the establishment of the authority by the governing bodies of those agencies, to plan for, finance, and manage the transition of the property known as the Concord Naval Weapons Station from military to civilian use.

SEC. 2.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique need in Contra Costa County to facilitate the use of the Concord Naval Weapons Station from military to civilian use.
