CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 03

Meeting Date:  July 25, 2000      

Subject/Title:    Approve a Resolution of the City Council of the City of Brentwood accepting a Notice of Completion for Loma Vista Park (formerly known as San Jose School Park) (CIP Number 522 5211) by Greystone Homes.                          

Submitted by:   Barry Margesson

Approved by:    Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION

Approve a Notice of Completion for Loma Vista Park.

PREVIOUS ACTION

Greystone Homes agreed to develop a park adjacent to the Loma Vista school site under the terms of a Reimbursement agreement, dated April 28, 1998.  At the Council Meeting of June 13, 2000, the City approved a Notice to Greystone Homes to begin its maintenance period at Loma Vista Park.  The City also agreed to consider final acceptance of Loma Vista Park at the July 25th City council meeting.

BACKGROUND

Greystone Homes, Inc. has completed construction of Loma Vista Park.  Construction of the park began in early November, 1999, and was substantially complete by the beginning of May 2000.  The four and one/half acre park contains three playground areas, sidewalks, and two picnic tables. The Parks and Recreation Department required the park opening to coincide with the beginning of the elementary school year. To ensure an opening date of July 25, 2000, Greystone Homes agreed to sod the entire turf area in the park.  By laying sod in the park instead of seeding, Loma Vista Park required a shorter establishment time than the standard 90-day period.

Minor deficiencies in the park construction were identified in the May 15, 2000 walk-through. A final walk-through on July 17, 2000 confirmed that all punch-list items have been repaired by Greystone.  Greystone also completed the installation of a drinking fountain and a small modification to the irrigation system prior to final acceptance of the park.

The final reimbursement payment will be made to Greystone Homes upon the City’s final acceptance of the Loma Vista Park improvements as provided by the Reimbursement Agreement between the City of Brentwood and Greystone Homes.
