AB 2464, Port Master Plan Update and More <br />March 13, 2018 <br />Page 3 <br />In order to facilitate this work formally, a sole -sourced contract to Schmitz and Associates <br />(working with Henschel Government Affairs) is proposed. Mr. Schmitz has a significant <br />history of working with our city on past key Coastal issues, including Marina Park, Sunset <br />Ridge Park, our Local Coastal Program, and more. Therefore, a sole -sourced effort here <br />may be appropriate. <br />The billing rate collectively (for Schmitz and Henschel) is $16,000 per month, not including <br />other expenses (such as travel and incidentals). The contract envisions a term of six <br />months, with a not -to -exceed amount of $120,000. See Attachment B for the proposed <br />professional services agreement. A budget amendment would be required to cover these <br />costs (see Attachment C). <br />It is challenging to know if AB 2464 will be successful immediately or if the first year of <br />the Legislature's 2017-2018 session will be a discussion, education, and learning year for <br />us and the Legislature and Commission about this important local need. Either way, we <br />are appreciative of Assembly Member Harper's interest in sponsoring AB 2464 for the <br />City and the harbor. <br />ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW: <br />Staff recommends the City Council find that this action is not subject to the California <br />Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Sections 15060(c)(2) (the activity will not <br />result in a direct or reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment) <br />and 15060(c)(3) (the activity is not a project as defined in Section 15378) of the CEQA <br />Guidelines, California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Chapter 3, because the adoption of <br />City Council Policy A-3 has no potential for resulting in physical change to the <br />environment, directly or indirectly. <br />NOTICING: <br />This agenda item was noticed according to the Brown Act (72 hours in advance of the <br />meeting at which the City Council considers the item). <br />ATTACHMENTS: <br />Attachment A <br />— Text of AB 2464 (Harper, 2017) <br />Attachment B <br />— Proposed Professional Services Agreement w/Schmitz and Associates <br />Attachment C <br />— Budget Amendment No. 18BA-032 <br />16-3 <br />
