Agenda Item #17

Modify the 1981 Cherie Down Park Agreement with the Board of County Commissioners of Brevard County


In 1981, the Brevard County School Board and the Board of Commissioners of Brevard County (BOCCOBC) entered into a land lease for beach front property owned by the School Board directly to the east of Cape View Elementary School in Cape Canaveral. The contract for this land lease is a period of 99 years; therefore, this agreement remains in effect until January 2080. Due to the budget shortfall, the BOCCOBC is in need of a reduction of their maintenance expenses for this leased property. As a result, the BOCCOBC desires to enter into an agreement with the City of Cape Canaveral (City) to take over the maintenance of the Cherie Down Park. The 1981 agreement between the School Board and the BOCCOBC does not include language allowing for a sublease of this property; therefore, the BOCCOBC has asked the School Board to modify the 1981 agreement to provide for a sublease by a local governmental agency or public agency. This agenda item and attached agreements allow for the necessary changes to the 1981 contract for a sublease to an alternate local governmental entity or public agency. The first attachment is a request for amendment agreement form, the second attachment is an overhead photograph of the property, and the third attachment is a copy of the 1981 agreement between the School Board and the BOCCOBC for your edification.


The approval of the change to the 1981 land lease agreement to allow the BOCCOBC and School Board to sublease the property to another governmental agency or public agency for the maintenance of Cherie Down Park in Cape Canaveral.
