Good News Announcements

Pat Collins 1st grandchild born and handed out trophies to all millennial Rotarians.
Kristin Beall Watson – next Tuesday support Big Kern
Garro Ellis – Bakersfield’s own Corbin Burnes, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher, headed for history to beat Kenley Jansen’s all-time 51 strikeout record, was scheduled to play this weekend against Dodgers. By the writing of these minutes, he was placed on the injured list without specifying an industry. Should we NOT charge Garro for this GOOD news announcement??!
President Ken "Terrio's #1 Butt Kisser" Beurmann bragged about a bunch of "Bakersfield Best" awards he had nothing to do with.

Guest Speaker – Barry Zoeller, Tejon Ranch Company Senior VP Corp Communications & Investor Relations.
About Tejon Ranch:
Tejon Ranch Company is a diversified real estate development and agribusiness company committed to responsibly using its land and resources to meet the housing, employment and lifestyle needs of Californians. Through its ownership of 270,000 acres of contiguous land in the prime Southern California market, the Company is unlocking value through a fully operational commercial/industrial real estate development, and three large-scale master-planned communities currently entitled and in various stages of pre-development.
Barry spoke about many of their existing and planned real estate projects:
Tejon Ranch Commerce Center (Industrial/Commercial) located at the gateway to Southern California, and is home to major distribution centers, outlet stores and travel-oriented fuel and food operations. TRCC has approximately 14 million square feet of monetizable industrial space and 319,000 square feet of monetizable commercial/retail space available for development, with 5.3 million square feet of industrial space and 638,000 square feet of commercial/retail space already built. All is leased!
Mountain Village at Tejon Ranch (Resort/Residential) designed to embrace the area’s natural beauty and act as a private escape for city residents. Project entitlements include 3,450 homes, 750 hotel keys and 160,000 square feet of commercial space. The Company is currently exploring capital strategies to help fund development.
Centennial at Tejon Ranch (Mixed-Use Residential) A large-scale residential and mixed-use community in Los Angeles County that will address the region’s housing and local service needs, while embracing sustainability and conservation. The project comprises more than 19,000 residential units, primarily family-oriented and active adult market-rate homes, and 10.1 million square feet of commercial space. Centennial’s development is projected to create more than 23,000 permanent on-site jobs, and nearly 25,000 construction jobs.
Grapevine at Tejon Ranch (Mixed-Use Residential) Located adjacent to TRCC at the base of the foothills in the San Joaquin Valley, Grapevine will support and expand the economic development activity taking place at TRCC. Grapevine is entitled for 12,000 residential units, primarily family-oriented and active adult market-rate homes, and 5.1 million square feet of commercial development. The Company has identified 7,000 additional acres available for future development (Grapevine North).
