(a) The board shall be the principal local public agent for the acquisition, lease disposition, and sale of real property and facilities within the territory of the military base, and is the state-designated agency for receipt of title to federal property, including property transferred pursuant to the “Pryor Amendment,” except as otherwise provided in this section. The board has the authority to acquire, lease, sell, or otherwise dispose of real property and facilities within the territory of the military base.
(b) The board may mediate and resolve conflicts between local agencies concerning the uses of federal land to be transferred for public benefit purposes, or for other uses. The board shall have primary local responsibility for complying with the provisions of the federal Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act (Public Law 100-77) related to low-income housing in the area of the base.
(c) The board may take title to property within the area of the base that is either turned over to the board by the federal government at no cost or that is purchased by the board. The board may sell, lease, or otherwise dispose of this property at full market value or at less than full market value in order to facilitate the rapid and successful transition of the base to civilian use. In any transaction involving the transfer of federal property, the board shall fully honor all conditions, requirements, and understandings with the federal government with respect to the use and disposal of that property. In the sale, lease, or disposition of real property, the board shall follow those procedures and make those determinations that are required of redevelopment agencies pursuant to Article 11 (commencing with Section 33430) of Chapter 4 of Part 1 of Division 24 of the Health and Safety Code.
(d) The provisions of this title shall not preclude negotiations between the federal government and any local telecommunication, water, gas, electric, or cable provider for the transfer to any such utility or provider of federally-owned distribution systems and related facilities serving the military base.
