Impartial analysis / Proposal

ARNOLD M. ALVAREZ-GLASMAN, City Attorney

This advisory measure has been entitled as the “Action to Attract Costco to the City of Huntington Park.”

Measure C places before the voters the decision of whether the City of Huntington Park should continue negotiations to locate a Costco in the City of Huntington Park.

If approved, the City Council will be directed to take all reasonable and necessary steps to negotiate with Costco for a store location in the City of Huntington Park, which could include land use, zoning, economic and financial incentives, or other concessions.

Opening a Costco in the City of Huntington Park will enhance shopping opportunities and generate significant tax dollars and jobs for the residents of the City. It is estimated the City will generate an estimated revenue of
$1.1 million per year upon the opening of Costco in the City of Huntington Park. Such revenues could be used to protect and maintain public safety,
anti-gang and drug programs, improve park and recreational facilities and youth and after-school programs, removal of graffiti and fixing streets, and improving and maintaining public utilities and infrastructure, which are essentials for Huntington Park residents.

A YES vote would direct the City Council to continue negotiations to attract a Costco in the City of Huntington Park.

A NO vote would direct the City Council to either stop negotiations to locate a Costco in the City of Huntington Park or find alternative approaches in attempting to attract a Costco to the City.

The City Council directed Measure C to be placed on the ballot at the Special Municipal Election to be held on March 5, 2019.
