AGENDA ITEM REVIEW
Public Works Review of Northwestern and
(Thom Head) Southern Entry Monuments
PREVIOUS ACTIONS: These Community Beautification projects were reviewed by the City Council as conceptual Project Number 336072 of the 1999-2004 Capital Improvement Program in February 1999 and direction was given to proceed with right of way acquisition
RECOMMENDED COUNCIL ACTION: Staff will present the projects and take public and City Council comments for incorporation into final design documents at the Councils January 25, 2000 meeting.
COMMENTS: The Citys first sculpted relief concrete monument was installed by a developer in the center median landscape on the Walnut Boulevard entry to the City in 1997. A larger, yet portable version of the monument was constructed on the Brentwood Boulevard North entry to the City, just within City limits. The North Entry was reviewed by the Planning Commission and constructed through the Capital Improvement Program in 1998.
This years Community Beautification Project includes
two entry monuments and appurtenant landscape. The Northwest Entry is
to be constructed at the Southeast corner of Lone Tree Way and Heidorn
Ranch Road at the Brentwood/Antioch boundary, at a great location to
impart the sense of community identity and pride intended by the Citys
entry monuments. The monument will be constructed just outside the Antioch
right of way on land currently owned by the Catholic Archdiocese of
Oakland. The monument will
be an important part of, and integrated into any future commercial development
in the area.
The South Entry, on Highway 4, is just South of the
Citys current limits on East Contra Costa Irrigation District
(ECCID) property. This
monument, in addition to its entry statement, affords the opportunity
to provide some landscape screening for the natural gas pump station
just outside the City. The
South Entry will also include a unique approach for the provision of
church and service club information with the incorporation of the signs
into a rail fence landscape feature.
Both Projects will utilize cobblestone treatments typical
of Brentwoods roadway landscape, and ornamental fruit trees, representative
of the Citys agricultural heritage, to help establish community
identity as the traveling public enters the City.
