Memorandum of Understanding
In an effort to leverage resources among the Central Service Planning Area (SPA) cities, staff initiated joint discussions with the cities Garden Grove and Westminster to explore a partnership and collaboration in the future development of a navigation center. To date, staff has also received an initial commitment from the County of Orange to participate in a project to construct and operate a navigation center over a 10-year period. To memorialize the tri-cities collaboration in the Central SPA, staff from the three cities have drafted a Memorandum of Understanding, was approved by the City Council on November 1, 2022. The MOU outlines that the cities agree to collaborate towards a future navigation center including funding contributions towards construction and operations.
