Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
In December 2017, the County relocated the District Attorney out of the buildings at 515 and 525 Main Street. The buildings were too small for the District Attorney's operations and deemed to be at end of life. On May 8, 2018, the Board declared the properties as surplus and the Facilities Division began the involved disposition process.

Part of the disposition process involves notification to several local agencies and municipalities. The County received interest from two groups; the El Dorado Historical Society and the City of Placerville. Elements of the El Dorado Historical Society reformed as the El Dorado Gold 1848 non-profit corporation and this final Purchase and Sales Agreement (PSA) was negotiated with that group.

Should the Board approve and execute the PSA, escrow will close on April 9, 2021, for a sale price of $125,000 to El Dorado Gold 1848 for the preservation of the historical buildings and artifacts.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could choose not to sell the real property and the buildings will remain vacant until another County use or buyer is determined.

February 9, 2021; Legistar File No. 21-0143; Agenda Item No. 7; 515 & 525 Main Street deemed exempt surplus property as related to Assembly Bill 1486 and the amended Surplus Land Act.
