(PURSUANT TO SUBDIVISION (b)(1) of GOVERNMENT CODE SECTION. 54956.9)

A point has been reached where, on the advice of legal counsel, based on existing facts and

circumstances, there is a significant exposure to litigation against the City.

The Watershed Conservation Authority ("WCA") is in escrow to acquire approximately 61 acres

of property in the unincorporated county area west of the 57 Freeway and adjacent to the 89 acres

of property which is owned by the Taiwan Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, N.S.A. (the "Tzu Chi

Foundation") which is located at 1100 South Valley Center Avenue in the unincorporated county

area. The City is in escrow to acquire from the WCA approximately 6.91 acres of property in

exchange for the payment of $1 million. The Tzu Chi Foundation, through its attorney, has raised

various legal issues challenging the proposed acquisition by WCA and the City. Meetings have

been held between representatives of the City, Tzu Chi, and WCA which resulted in a proposed

Memorandum of Understanding between the parties to cooperate going forward with planning of

the entire 150 acres. This proposed Memorandum of Understanding will be discussed with the

City Council.
