SUBJECT:
AMENDMENT NO. 2 TO AGREEMENT A98-57 WITH SPRINT PCS ASSETS, L.L.C.
RECOMMENDATION:
Authorize the execution of Amendment No. 2 to Agreement No. A98-57 with Sprint PCS Assets, L.L.C. to increase amount of cost reimbursements, noticing addresses and modify telecommunications equipment at the existing cell facility at 15100 Aqueduct (Cox Site #3).
BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS:
The City entered into Agreement A98-57 with Cox Communications PCS, LP, on July 14, 1998.  That agreement has been extended for successive five-year terms pursuant to the terms of the lease and is still in effect today.  On November 12, 2014, the Agreement was amended to modify the equipment and add access restriction and requirements.  The original agreement and Amendment No. 1 are on file in the City Clerk's office.  On May 4, 2018, Sprint PCS Assets, L.L.C., submitted plans to replace and modify equipment cabinets within the fenced enclosure on Sprint's leased area.  The Community Development Department approved the plans to replace the equipment, install new pine needle socks for all antennas and refurbish all exterior branching and other screening material. Attachment "D" is an accurate description of the new equipment to be installed.

In addition, to ensure payment of all costs, including attorneys' fees incurred in the preparation and review of the cell tower amendment, the amount referenced in Section 20(g) has been amended to require a deposit of $3,500 prior to the execution of the agreement and the notification addresses referenced in Section 20(h) have been updated.
ENVIRONMENTAL (CEQA) REVIEW:
This proposed action is exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (California Public Resources Code §§ 21000 et seq., CEQA) and CEQA regulations (14 California Code Regulations §§ 15000 et seq.) because it constitutes an organizational or administrative activity that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment. Accordingly, this action does not constitute a "project" that requires environmental review (see specifically 14 CCR § 15378 (b)(4-5)).
FISCAL IMPACT:
The amendment to the agreement will have no fiscal impact on the General Fund except to continue the revenue generated from the lease. Any costs incurred in the preparation and review of the agreement, including attorneys' fees, will be deducted from the deposit collected by the City.
 
REVIEWED BY OTHERS:
This item has been reviewed by the City Attorney.
