The executive session will enable the Port Commission to develop a negotiating strategy tailored to maximize the City's return based on these factors. In particular, the executive session discussions will enhance the capacity of the Port Commission during its public deliberations and actions to set the price and payment terms that are most likely to maximize the benefits to the Port, the City and the People of the State of California and more effectively negotiate with the non-Port party on price and payment terms.
