Director Tsen moved the consent agenda.

Director Richardson seconded the motion.

This item passed unanimously.


4.         DDA Commercial Leasing Provisions

Bob Beck, TIDA, presented a review of commercial leasing provisions in the Disposition and Development Agreement. Presentation spurred, in part, by recent interest in Hanger 3 by numerous parties.

The DDA grants TICD vertical development rights for key commercial sites. If TICD declines to exercise rights, opportunities shall be auctioned.

Mr. Beck reviewed the commercial lot locations on YBI and TI. Critical commercial lots include Building 1, Hangers 2 and 3, Lots M-1-A and M-1-B on TI. TICD shall enter into a Vertical Disposition and Development Agreement with TIDA or auction the development opportunity within a given time from Major Phase Approval for critical commercial lots.

TICD shall auction the vertical development and ground lease rights to the non-critical commercial lots.


            Director Tsen asked if commercial proposals need to be first vetted through TICD.
