|Item Title:||Resolution No. 2014-2015.60 Authorization for Application for Public Benefit Allowance Acquisition of Surplus Federal Real Property for Educational Purposes (Parcel 3 of the Former Alameda Naval Air Station (240 and 250 Singleton Avenue)) (10 Mins/Action)|
Parcel 3 of the former Alameda Naval Air Station was formerly owned by AUSD. The parcel consists of two sets of buildings, with one set on the east side and the other set on the west side. The west side set of buildings has the address of 240 Singleton Avenue. The site operated as Woodstock Child Development Center from 2005-2010, when the site closed. The east side set of buildings has the address of 250 Singleton Avenue. The site operated as Miller Elementary School from 1975-2006. After Miller Elementary School closed, Island High School was located there from 2008-2011, when the site closed. The two sets of buildings were closed, and ownership was returned to the Navy.
As the District is experiencing growth and the City of Alameda is developing, the District is taking advantage of Naval property’s availability and applying to assume ownership again. The approval of the resolution authorizes the District to apply for the property. The Navy will review the application and AUSD anticipates a response within 60-90 days. At that time, the District will learn the cost of the property from the Navy.
Staff recommends approval of Resolution 2014-2015.60 authorizing the application for Parcel 3 of the former Alameda Naval Air Station (the former Singleton Avenue properties).
