Title
Request City Council to Approve an Exclusive Right to Negotiate an Agreement with Orbis Real Estate Partners for the Purchase of Approximately 2.84 Acres of Rialto Successor Agency Property and 0.29 acres of City owned Property at the intersection of Renaissance Parkway and Laurel Avenue.

Body
BACKGROUND:
On May 23, 2006, the former Redevelopment Agency acquired a 2.84-acre parcel (APN 0240-211-21) from the GPN Partnership for the purchase price of $1,051,535 (the "RSA Parcel").
