Both parties executed a 3-month administrative extension of the Short Term ENA on December 24, 2016, and the Metro Board of Directors authorized an additional 3-month extension on February 23, 2017. These extensions were made to allow additional time for Metro and the Developer to 1) confirm feasibility of transit infrastructure requirements for project shaping; 2) ensure that the proposed development does not physically preclude relevant transit projects funded by the approval of Measure M; and 3) conduct further public outreach to share the results of these feasibility studies and site programming and gather further community feedback.

Staff is now in a position to recommend entering into an ENA, which will enable more advanced negotiations around development of the Site and will allow processing the required entitlements including environmental approvals.
