CONSENT AGENDA ITEM A
APPROVAL OF SECOND AMENDMENT
TO PRE-OPTION AGREEMENT FOR
PARCELS 5 AND 8 DEVELOPMENT
VENTURA PORT DISTRICT CONSENT AGENDA ITEM A
BOARD COMMUNICATION Meeting Date: March 14, 2018
TO: Board of Port Commissioners
FROM: Brian Pendleton, Deputy General Manager
SUBJECT: Second Amendment to Pre-Option Agreement for Parcels 5 and 8 Development
RECOMMENDATION:
That the Board of Port Commissioners approve the Second Amendment to Pre-Option
Agreement between the Ventura Port District and H. Parker Hospitality for the development of
Parcels 5 and 8.
SUMMARY:
On September 13, 2017, the Board of Port Commissioners approved the Pre-Option Agreement
(“Agreement”) between the Ventura Port District and H. Parker Hospitality for the development
of Parcels 5 and 8. The Agreement allows both parties to extend the 120-day term by mutual
written agreement. The Agreement was originally set to expire on January 11, 2018, however,
on January 10, 2018; the Board approved Amendment No. 1 to the Pre-Option Agreement,
which extended the expiration date to March 12, 2018. The parties believe another 60-day
extension is necessary to complete the preliminary due diligence items contemplated in the PreOption
Agreement.
BACKGROUND:
On May 24, 2017, the Board selected H. Parker Hospitality (“Parker”) for proposed development
at Parcel 5 and Parcel 8. Before an Option and Lease Agreements are entered into, the parties
agreed that preliminary due diligence work needed to be done; these items were spelled out in a
Pre-Option Agreement which was first due to expire on January 11, 2018. One 60-day
extension was agreed to by the parties, and another is proposed. Both parties have made
significant progress in completing these tasks. However it is estimated that the extra time,
extending the deadline to May 11, 2018, is needed to complete the tasks.
Per the Agreement, the District is providing updated preliminary title reports and preliminary
property surveys, while Parker will complete environmental site assessments, archaeological
assessments, biological assessments and geotechnical studies. The term of this Second
Amendment will be for a period of 60 days, during which time these tasks will be completed and
finalized. Also, during this extended term, staff will continue to negotiate the terms of the Option
and Lease Agreements with Parker for future Board consideration.
FISCAL IMPACTS:
The District’s expense for completing its obligations under the pre-option agreement to date is
approximately $10,000 for preliminary title reports and land survey work.

CONSENT AGENDA ITEM B
APPROVAL OF FIRST AMENDMENT
AND RESTATED LEASE FOR THE BEER
AND SAUSAGE, LLC DBA BS
TAPROOM/BEER SEASON
VENTURA PORT DISTRICT CONSENT AGENDA ITEM B
BOARD COMMUNICATION Meeting Date: March 14, 2018
TO: Board of Port Commissioners
FROM: Robin Baer, Property Manager
SUBJECT: Approval of First Amendment and Restated Lease for the Beer and Sausage,
LLC dba BS Taproom/Beer Season at 1591 Spinnaker Drive, #113 & #115.
RECOMMENDATION:
That the Board of Port Commissioners approve the First Amendment and Restated Lease for
the Beer and Sausage, LLC dba BS Taproom/Beer Season.
SUMMARY:
At the request of the restaurant operator, the District has modified the lease to comply with
current ABC requirements.
• The rent will commence the sooner of January 1, 2019 or when the BS Taproom opens,
whichever occurs first. Instead of January 1, 2018 per the existing lease.
• The District will receive 4% of gross sales which will replace previous language
regarding food and alcohol sales. Instead of 3% of food and 5% of alcohol per the
existing lease.
• The District is also providing a credit towards percentage rent of up to $62.5K for year
one and up to $62.5K for year two per the existing lease.
BACKGROUND:
On December 7, 2016, the Commission adopted Ordinance No. 51 authorizing execution of the
Lease between Ventura Port District and Beer and Sausage, LLC dba BS Taproom/Beer
Season New Restaurant Lease at 1591 Spinnaker Drive, #113 and #115. The Beer and
Sausage, LLC corporation is operated by Chris Chrysilliou, an investor and entrepreneur who
owns and manages commercial real estate, including many restaurants from Athens Greece to
Northern and Southern California. Mr. Chrysiliou recently purchased the Rhumb Line restaurant
in the harbor. This restaurant will specialize in expertly selected Craft Beer and locally sourced
food. One of the main features will be to highlight the innovative glass refrigeration system
where all of the kegs will be stored and displayed. They plan on supporting the Ventura County
local breweries by showcasing their beer. Mr. Chrysiliou feels that Ventura Harbor Village has
the best opportunity to open up their flagship Beer and Sausage Taproom and looks forward to
being a Village tenant.
FISCAL IMPACT:
This new lease reflects current market rental rates for restaurant space in the complex. The 10
year occupancy cost for this tenant is $654,000 not including percentage rent. The minimum
rent over the ten year term is adjusted annually by the consumer price index (CPI). The Fiscal
Year 2016-2017 tenant improvement budget provided $200,000 for this space. An additional
$150,000 in building improvements will be funded using unrestricted reserves. There are
sufficient funds in the unrestricted reserves to cover this expense.

APPROVAL OF NOTICE OF
COMPLETION FOR THE 1583
SPINNAKER DRIVE ELEVATOR
MODIFICATION PROJECT
VENTURA PORT DISTRICT STANDARD AGENDA ITEM 1
BOARD COMMUNICATION Meeting Date: March 14, 2018
TO: Board of Port Commissioners
FROM: Joe Gonzalez, Facilities Manager
SUBJECT: Approval of Notice of Completion for the 1583 Spinnaker Drive Elevator
Modification Project
RECOMMENDATION:
That the Board of Port Commissioners adopt Resolution No. 3347,
a) Accepting the work of Thyssenkrupp Elevators on the 1583 Spinnaker Drive Elevator
Modification Project; and
b) Authorize staff to prepare and record a Notice of Completion with the Ventura County
Recorder.
SUMMARY:
On June 9, 2017, the Ventura Port District entered into a contract with Thyssenkrupp Elevators
in the amount of $87,616.00 for the modification of an elevator at 1583 Spinnaker Drive. The
work is now deemed complete.
BACKGROUND:
The Port District is in the process of modernizing all five elevators in Harbor Village. As of today,
four out of five have been modernized. The Port District is currently modernizing one elevator
per fiscal year, by doing so it will bring our elevators up to date, and most importantly they will
be ADA Compliant.
The Ventura Harbor Village elevators are still original from the early 80’s, and parts are
becoming difficult to locate when the original elevators break down. Thyssenkrupp will be
installing the latest technology, software, and equipment, bringing the elevators up to date. and
will be performing more efficiency with the latest technology as the ones that have been
modernized.
FISCAL IMPACT:
The final cost for the elevator modernization is $106,220.43, which is within the budget
appropriation for this project for Fiscal year 17-18 ($110,000). There were no change orders on
this project.

STANDARD AGENDA ITEM 2
THE VENTURA PORT DISTRICT’S DRY
STORAGE FACILITY
VENTURA PORT DISTRICT STANDARD AGENDA ITEM 2
BOARD COMMUNICATION Meeting Date: March 14, 2018
TO: Board of Port Commissioners
FROM: Oscar Peña, General Manager
SUBJECT: The Ventura Port District’s Dry Storage Facility
RECOMMENDATION:
That the Board of Port Commissioners authorize the General Manager to issue a notice to
tenants to vacate the District’s Dry Boat Storage facility located at 1450 Anchors Way Drive by
May 1, 2018.
SUMMARY:
The developer of Portside Ventura Harbor (the developer) is required to make some street
modifications to Anchors Way Drive, Beachmont and connecting streets in the keys. The
modifications to Anchors Way Drive will require physical modifications to the District’s Dry Boat
Storage (see attached site plan). This requires that boat owners seek alternate boat storage in
Ventura County.
BACKGROUND:
The Port District owns and operates the Dry Boat Storage Facility (approximately 1.81 acres).
There are 122 spaces and the current occupancy is 100%. The boat storage offers spaces for
boats 12 feet to 40 feet in length. Rental agreements with boat owners are based on a monthto-month
tenancy and either party has the right to terminate with thirty (30) days written notice.
In order to make modifications to Anchors Way Drive and the dry storage area, all boats need to
vacate. Subject to the Board’s approval, the boat owners will be provided with a 45 day notice to
vacate on or before May 1, 2018.
District staff has been working with the developer to include into the scope of work for the street
modifications the District’s Dry Storage facility. The District will develop a new striping plan that
takes into consideration other uses such as storage for kayaks, standup paddle boards and
developing the optimum size configuration for the facility.
The District will allow the developer’s general contractor to utilize the dry storage area for
staging once construction of the street modifications begins. This same contractor will make the
improvements to the dry storage facility after the street modifications, which includes slurry
sealing and restriping of the lot. We expect a 15% to 20% reduction of the dry storage space as
a result of the reconfiguration. There may be a greater loss if the District utilizes some of the dry
storage space for its maintenance department. Jensen Engineering will be working with staff on
the redesign of the dry boat storage facility.
Plans for the street modifications were submitted to the City in early February. Following the
termination notice to boat owners, the developer will prepare their implementation strategy so
that construction may begin the first week of May. It is the hope and expectation that the street
modifications can be made within sixty (60) days from the start date. Time is of the essence to
complete this project and allow the business owners in the northeast harbor area to benefit from
a successful summer season. Traffic will be monitored to make navigating on Anchors Way as
easy as possible.
FISCAL IMPACT:
For the remaining Fiscal Year 2017-2018, the District revenue could be reduced by $20,000 to
$30,000. If a reconfigured dry boat storage could be re-opened by mid-July, we believe many of
our previous tenants could return. It is too early to determine the fiscal impact for the 2018-2019
Fiscal Year.
The Harbormaster will be requesting $30,000 under the Surrender Abandoned Vessel
Exchange (SAVE) Program. Should the funds be awarded, the District will have funds available
to mitigate possible abandoned vessels during the reconfiguration.
