Document Description
City (Landlord) owns the approximately 6,300 square foot aircraft hangar and approximately 18,289 square feet of land. On or about August 28, 1984, Landlord and Tenant entered into that certain Flat Rate Lease for the Premises, filed with the Office of the City Clerk as Document No. RR-261360. The term of the Flat Rate Lease expired on June 30, 1987, and Tenant continued to occupy the Premises as a month-to-month holdover tenant as provided in the Flat Rate Lease. On August 1, 2018, Landlord and Tenant entered Into that certain Lease Agreement for the Premises for a month-to-month term for a period not to exceed three years. The proposed new Lease provides Tenant with a three-year (3-year) lease term. The San Diego Community College leases the hangar and land for the operation of a classroom for the instruction in the repair and maintenance of aircraft, related educational facilities, and for such other related or incidental purposes. The Tenant has provided these vocational and educational services to the youth and the San Diego community at this location continuously for more than 39 years. The Tenant has developed business goodwill. Its location on the Montgomery-Gibbs Executive Airport serves to complement other aviation businesses and services at the airport. The proposed lease will allow the Tenant to continue to occupy the premises. It will also prevent the displacement and disruption of an existing business and avoid the potential of a prolonged vacancy of the aircraft hangar. The proposed lease will also provide a continued revenue stream to the Airports Enterprise Fund.
