The 7-11 Committee must do all of the following (Ed. Code § 17390):


                      Review the projected school enrollment and other data provided by the District to
                       determine the amount of surplus real property.


                      Establish a priority list of use of surplus space and real property that will be acceptable to
                       the community.

                      Cause to have circulated throughout the attendance area a priority list of surplus space
                       and real property and provide for hearings of community input to the community on
                       acceptable uses of space and real property, including the sale or lease of surplus real
                       property for child care development purposes.

                      Make a final determination of limits of tolerance of use of space and real property.


                      Forward to the Board a report recommending uses of surplus space and real property.


                      The 7-11 Committee’s recommendation is advisory only, and need not be implemented
                       by the Board.


                   Determine whether the project is a workforce housing project exempt from the 7-11
                   Committee requirement.

                      Effective January 1, 2018, Assembly Bill (“AB”) 1157 exempted school districts from the
                       requirement that they establish a 7-11 Committee to consider declaring property surplus
                       if the district intends to use the surplus property for employee rental housing.  The
                       expressed legislative intent behind AB 1157 was to exempt school district property to be
                       used for district workforce housing from the surplus property process, but the law stops
                       short of a broad exemption beyond removing the 7-11 Committee process.

               II. Consider Physical and Political Aspects of Site

                   Optional: Clarify Site’s Physical Development Constraints, both for the District’s purposes and
                   for the information of prospective buyers and developers.


                      Ensure title is free and clear of tax lien liabilities, restrictive covenants, conditions and
                       restrictions, restrictive easements, and any additional constraints.

                      Obtain a boundary/survey map to verify acreage and land area and a legal description.


                      Determine current zoning and general plan restrictions on the property as well as the
                       likelihood and time line for changes to a more favorable designation.  This review should
                       also reveal other restrictions and costs such as Coastal Commission approval, Corps of
                       Engineers approval, availability of water and sewer connections, off-site costs such as
                       traffic mitigation, park dedication fees, fees for special districts, etc.
