Background and Analysis:
The Bourgault property is located between Martin Way and Pacific Avenue and is currently undeveloped. The Comprehensive Plan includes the extension of Ensign Road from Martin Way to Pacific Avenue. Acquiring the property will facilitate the construction of the Ensign Road extension in the future. This is a valuable street connection because it would connect two arterials that are in an area of High-Density Corridor Zoning. Expanding the street network in this area will also have benefits for accessing I-5.

The 6.75-acre property currently supports several informal homeless encampments. Acquisition will allow the City more flexibility in managing this site and providing services and case management to the individuals living there.

Neighborhood/Community Interests (if known):
Future extension of Ensign Road will benefit the community by connecting Martin Way to Pacific Avenue and by expanding access to I-5. Management of the property and provision of other housing and homeless services to those currently sheltering there will benefit residents of the City.
