(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, in order to mitigate the effects of the project which is the subject of the Department of the Army Permit No. 14003E48B, issued July 23, 1986, the City of Oakland, acting by and through its Board of Port Commissioners, may use revenue accruing from, or out of, the use of granted tidelands, for the acquisition of land, or an interest in land, located outside the geographical boundaries of the trust grant, or for the enhancement, restoration, or management of land located outside the trust grant, if the commission makes all of the following determinations:

(1) That adequate areas for appropriate mitigation do not presently exist within the geographical boundaries of the port district trust grants, and that if some of the mitigation can occur within the geographical boundaries of the port district trust grants, that mitigation will be included in the mitigation program.

(2) That the proposed offsite mitigation best promotes appropriate public trust purposes for which sovereign tidelands and submerged lands are held by the state, its location is appropriate in consideration of public trust needs, and it addresses the specific impacts of the project.

(3) That, unless the proposed offsite mitigation is to be located within another tidelands trust grant, title to any land or interest in land acquired, as well as any land which is to be enhanced, restored, or managed, will be transferred to the state, acting by and through the State Lands Commission, to be held in trust for the public as land having the legal character of sovereign lands.

(4) That the mitigation is in the best interest of the state.

(b) The State Lands Commission may lease any land or interest in land transferred to it pursuant to this section, as provided by Part 2 (commencing with Section 6501).
