X. NEW BUSINESS

A. Consider authorizing the City Manager to execute the Memorandum of Agreement between the City of Brisbane and Sunquest Properties, Inc. for continued operations under Use Permit UP-8-03

(The purpose of this item is to consider and approve a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for continued soil processing operations by Sunquest Properties Inc. at the Baylands site as a “bridge” between the former Use Permit UP-8-03 and review and action by the Planning Commission on the pending application for a new Use Permit for the soil processing site. The MOA will establish maximum height limits and incorporate air and dust management plans and remediation and enforcement procedures for the soil processing.)
