The Pinole City Council on Thursday will consider a mass transfer of property from one city agency to another, in a preemptive move to maintain control in case Gov. Jerry Brown prevails in his plan to abolish California's redevelopment agencies.

Under the plan, which will be the subject of public hearings, the Pinole Redevelopment Agency would transfer ownership of its extensive portfolio of properties to the city.

The commercial and institutional properties included in the proposed transfer are:

  • Pinole Vista Crossings Shopping Center;

  • Pinole Valley Shopping Center;

  • Gateway West tract at Pinole Valley Road immediately north of Interstate 80;

  • Gateway East medical pad;

  • Gateway East restaurant pad;

  • Pinole Shores Business Park;

  • the historic Bank Of Pinole building;

  • Pinole Youth Center and Memorial Hall;

  • the parking lot across Tennent Avenue from the youth center;

  • Fernandez Park Patio;

  • 651 Pinole Shores Drive;

  • 2401 San Pablo Avenue.

    Also slated to be transferred from the agency to the city are 11 residential parcels.

    Pinole Economic Development Director Mary Drazba said the move is prompted by the uncertain fate of redevelopment agency assets under the governor's plan.

    The meeting will be at 6 p.m. in the City Council chamber at Pinole City Hall, 2131 Pear St.
