COMMENTS:  Attached is a letter from the Diablo Estates Homeowners Association regarding the replacement of a fence that abuts their property.  The attached letter shows the location of the fence.  This is brought forth at the request of the Homeowners Association.  The City Council has an adopted policy that adopts that subdivision walls are the City's responsibility.  Most are maintained through various subdivisions Lighting and Landscape Districts.  In the case of Diablo Estates the City approved in 1998 that the Homeowners Association take over the responsibility of the LLD that serves that development.  The Homeowners Association is asking to take over the responsibilities of their walls from the City.  As a part of that they want to rebuild the wall.  They are requesting some cost sharing for this and in turn agree to relieve the City of any future maintenance responsibilities.  While the cost of $24,000 may be high the alternative of the City maintaining the all would cost money also although we might be able to recover the City costs by reactivating the City administered LLD.  This is a Council policy question to fund this request.
