NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The property was formerly owned by the State of California, Department of Finance (predecessor to the Department of General Services). The Department of Finance deeded the property the Regents of the University of California (UC) for agricultural research and experimentation purposes. UC has now decided that they no longer need the property for this purpose. The original deeds (there were two separate deeds) provided that the property would revert to the State of California if the property were no longer used for the stated purpose. The main purpose is to transfer the title back to the Department of of General Services for sale as surplus and to conform to the reversionary clauses. The Department of General Services is to enhance the value of the property by obtaining necessary entitlements from the City of Santa Clara for residential use, and then sell the property to obtain a maximum sale price by public solicitation.
