Brookhurst Providing Solutions Today
For Tomorrow’s Infrastructure Needs

Throughout the United States, we are facing deteriorating infrastructure desperately in need of capital to maintain our economy and way of life.  Brookhurst has been involved in numerous advisory and development projects to meet these needs.  We have conferred with entities such as the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and their pursuit of alternative financing arrangements for the Ohio River Bridge,  the San Diego Airport International Airport Authority on needed distribution facilities, and various municipalities exploring alternative funding and delivery of their needed economic infrastructure projects in ways that best protect their debt capacity and credit rating.

In the 21st century, we will face unprecedented critical infrastructure needs.  And BDC has the unique ability to deliver solutions.

Senate Hearings
Infrastructure Legislation
California State Capitol

Jeff Baize [CEO of BDC] has been requested by numerous California elected officials and legislative bodies to assist in the drafting of bills and providing testimony at California Senate hearings in an effort to expand governmental access to alternative financing arrangements for needed infrastructure projects.   Mr. Baize assisted the Office of the Governor by providing input on drafts of P3 bills, and was requested to testify to the Senate Committee on Governance and Finance and the State Assembly Committee on Local Government in connection with Senate Bill 475, which would increase funding options under Government Code 5956, thus providing needed private funding for the failing Interstate 710 Gerald Desmond Bridge in Long Beach.  He has also testified at the State Capitol to the State Allocation Board’s Implementation Committee regarding appropriate usage of California Education Code 17406 for lease-leaseback financing and development of public schools, and assisted the California Joint Legislative Budget Committee and the State’s Legislative Analyst’s Office in understanding the challenges and benefits of P3 project delivery for infrastructure projects in connection with their reports to the Legislature.

Oregon Governor’s
Infrastructure Commission

Brookhurst Governmental Advisory was contracted by the Oregon Associated General Contractors to provide advisory services to the Governor’s Infrastructure Commission on various project delivery options. Our work included reviewing proposed P3/DBFOM and lease-leaseback models as well as alternative delivery options such as design-build and CM at Risk funded by general obligation and private activity bonds. Our advisory services also included advising State legislators on pending bills that would expand the State’s authority to pursue P3 delivery.

The City of Roseville, California
Downtown Specific Plan
Public Improvement Projects

The City of Roseville, California, requested Brookhurst to provide numerous analyses, feasibility studies and advice on alternative funding and development methodologies for a number of its infrastructure projects.  The Downtown Specific Plan will include redevelopment of the Town Plaza and roads surrounding City Hall, relocation of utilities and a major sewer line, completion of pedestrian bridges, street lighting, and a number of vertical social infrastructure projects including a new fire station and municipal parking garage.  As part of our analysis, Brookhurst presented its findings at City Council  meetings.   In addition, Brookhurst conducted numerous meetings with the City Manager and City staff wherein we proposed creative, innovative off-balance-sheet funding arrangements involving the leasing of the City’s water system in a manner that would increase revenues to the City’s General Fund, thereby providing funding for the new infrastructure projects.
