I am pleased to inform you that I hereby reappoint you to the Board of Zoo Commissioners for the term ending June 30, 2023. In order to complete the
process as quickly as possible, there are several steps that must be taken, many of which require visiting City Hall. If you require parking during these procedures, please call Claudia Luna in my Office at (213) 978-0621 to make arrangements for you.
To begin the reappointment process, please review, sign and return the enclosed Remuneration Form, Undated Separation Forms, Background Check Release
and Information Sheet within one week of receiving this letter. These documents are necessary to ensuring the most efficient, open and accountable City government possible.
As part of the City Council confirmation process, you will need to meet with David Ryu, your Councilmember, and Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell, the
Chair of the Arts, Entertainment, Parks and River Committee, to answer any questions they may have. You will be hearing from a City Council committee clerk who will let you know when your reappointment will be considered by the Arts, Entertainment, Parks and River Committee. Some time thereafter, you will be notified by the committee clerk when your reappointment will be presented to the full City Council for confirmation. Once you are confirmed, you will be required to take the oath of office in the City Clerk s Office in Room 395 of City Hall. Claudia Luna will assist you during the confirmation process if you have questions.
On July 11, 2018, the Board of Recreation and Park Commissioners (Board) approved a proposed Amendment No. 3 to Lease Agreement No. C-109009 to
extend the term to October 24, 2040 and ONE's proposal to enter into a sub-lease agreement with PCS Energy, to install, operate and maintain solar carport structures on the leased premises, subject to approval by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) (Attachment 1).
On February 14, 2018, ONE, in order to participate in the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) Feed-in Tariff Solar Energy Reoffer
program (FIT Program) (Attachment G), proposed to sub-lease a portion of the parking lot at the Center (Attachment F) to PCS Energy, to install, operate and maintain solar carport structures to help generate solar energy back to the LADWP power grid and to help the City meet its renewable energy targets in the Los Angeles Basin. FIT Program s participation commitment requirement is twenty (20) years. However, ONE s Lease with the City will end in 2035, which would leave ONE short of the twenty (20) year participation commitment period. Without an extension in the term of the Lease, ONE would not be able to show that it has the necessary site control to participate in the FIT Program.
