LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 944, Torres. Surplus state property.
Existing law requires the Department of General Services to dispose of surplus state real property in a specified manner, including, but not limited to, prescribing the priority of disposition of the property before the department offers it for sale to private entities or individuals. Existing law declares that the provision of decent housing for all Californians is a state goal of the highest priority and that priority be given to the disposal of surplus state real property to housing for persons and families of low or moderate income. Existing law requires a local agency or nonprofit affordable housing sponsor, in order to be considered as a potential priority buyer of certain surplus state real property, as defined, to, among other things, demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the department, that the surplus state real property, or a portion of that surplus state real property, is to be used by the local agency or nonprofit affordable housing sponsor for open space, public parks, affordable housing projects, development of projects that create sustainable employment opportunities of benefit to the area and region where the property is located, or development of local government-owned facilities.
This bill would require a local agency or nonprofit affordable housing sponsor that wishes to be considered a priority buyer of the state real property known as Lanterman Developmental Center, located in Pomona, Los Angeles County, which has been declared to be surplus state real property, to additionally demonstrate to the department that the local agency or nonprofit affordable housing sponsor will use the property for the development of projects that create sustainable employment opportunities of benefit to the area and region where the property is located.
This bill would, notwithstanding any other law, additionally prohibit that property from being prezoned, zoned, or rezoned unless the Department of General Services requests that the property be rezoned or approves the rezoning of the property.
This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Lanterman Developmental Center.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 11011.6 is added to the Government Code, to read:

11011.6.
 Any local agency or nonprofit affordable housing sponsor that wishes to be considered a priority buyer of the state real property known as Lanterman Developmental Center, located at 3530 Pomona Boulevard in Pomona, Los Angeles County, which has been declared to be surplus state real property pursuant to Section 11011, shall, in addition to the requirements of Section 11011.1, demonstrate to the department that the property, or a portion of that property, will be used by the local agency or nonprofit affordable housing sponsor for the development of projects that create sustainable employment opportunities of benefit to the area and region in which the property is located.
(b) Notwithstanding any other law, the state real property known as Lanterman Developmental Center, located at 3530 Pomona Boulevard in Pomona, Los Angeles County, which has been declared to be surplus state real property pursuant to Section 11011, shall not be prezoned, zoned, or rezoned unless the Department of General Services requests that the property be rezoned or approves the rezoning of the property.

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 circumstances applicable to the development of the Lanterman Developmental Center property and the need to ensure that the property is zoned in a manner that is consistent with the long-term interests of the surrounding area and region.
