That the City Council approve and authorize the City Manager to execute a lease agreement with the La Habra Host Lions Club for the use of the City-owned Veteran's Hall, located at 209 North Orange Street for a period of one year from March 15, 2021 through March 14, 2022, with the option of five additional one-year renewals.
The La Habra Host Lions Club (Club), established in 1947, is a service organization that supports the local community through various programs and projects, and partners with the City on a number of high-profile community events throughout the year.  The Club recently approached the City about utilizing Veterans Memorial Hall as a meeting place for their regular Tuesday night meetings, as well as for meetings of their Leos Club (high school volunteers), which occurs twice a month.

Staff prepared the attached proposed lease agreement that, if approved by City Council, would allow the Club to use Veterans Memorial Hall, located at 209 North Orange Street, for their weekly meetings on Tuesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.  Pursuant to the proposed agreement, the Leos Club would also be allowed to use the building every other Monday for one-hour meetings.  The term of the agreement is for one-year, with five additional one-year renewals that, similar to other non-profit leases of City facilities, would be administratively approved unless denied by a four-fifths vote of the City Council. The agreement includes a proposed negotiated rate that takes into consideration in-kind services provided by the Club's members throughout the year in support of City of La Habra programs and special events in-lieu of a full rental rate.
