Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Sacramento, California railyard agreement
Sacramento downtown railyard on verge of sale with cleanup deal

Three key stakeholders in the downtown Sacramento railyard disclosed Wednesday they have reached an agreement in principle on final toxic cleanup of the 240-acre site, clearing the way for an anticipated sale this summer to a local development group.

Sacramento developer Larry Kelley, principal of Downtown Railyard Venture LLC, confirmed his company has reached an accord with Union Pacific, the site’s former owner, and Inland American Real Estate Trust, the current owner, on a long-standing tripping point: Who is responsible for financing toxic remediation at the former industrial yard.

Union Pacific officials said a deal was struck this week, negotiated in part by State Sen. Darrell Steinberg and Sacramento Rep. Doris Matsui, that clears the way for Inland to turn over control of the largely empty site to Kelley sometime this summer for development. The agreement likely keeps the yard in the running as a possible site for the World Food Center envisioned by leaders of the University of California, Davis.
