California State Lands Commission (CSLC) Rent Reduction Deferred
Current Rates Remain in Effect
March 1, 2018
While CSLC staff recommended a significant reduction in California pier and buoy rental rates as negotiated with TLOA at the CSLC February 27th meeting, the CSLC commissioners decided to defer action on the proposed lease rates until such time as an independent consultant can be retained to conduct a thorough review of the Benchmark system. While this process has been deferred for more analysis, the CSLC staff and TLOA have already been in contact to see how we can move forward right away, so that time and available information are not wasted.
For now, the commission has agreed to keep the rates the same for piers and buoys until new rates have been approved. That is good news, since the CSLC staff had originally proposed an increase to $1.01/sf for piers and $516 per buoy.
Please see the side bar for the current rental rates and proposed rate reductions that were negotiated with TLOA. Every five years CSLC analyzes rental rates for pier and buoys. In 2017, CSLC staff proposed an approximate 35% increase over 2012 rates.
Thanks to all of you who provided comments of support for the proposed rate reductions. CSLC received over 160 comments of support. TLOA will continue to keep you apprised as we move toward providing the commission with the information they have requested.
