CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 12


Meeting Date: September 26, 2000

Subject/Title: Approve a resolution to establish a Capital Improvement Project for "Trail Head Purchase - Centex Development" and direct staff to develop an agreement for purchase of property.

Submitted by: Craig D. Bronzan, Director

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION
Approve the resolution to establish this CIP project for the purchase of a trailhead in the Centex Development.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
Centex Homes was conditioned to develop a trail and bridge from their development, across Marsh Creek, to connect to Creekside Park and Marsh Creek Trail. Once final design for the trail was developed, it became evident that the trail access would require two sections of trail that would turn at a ninety-degree angle and would be enclosed on both sides by fencing. The trail would also go behind two houses and cut through two properties without a straight visual site line. This configuration of trail resulted in a "tunnel effect", were the user could not see the end until half way along the trail.

City staff has meet Centex representatives and has determined that the best solution to the problem is to set up a trailhead that would provide an entry to the trail and bridge crossing by purchasing two lots from Centex for the trailhead. Most importantly, this project will provide safe access and the ability for public safety to see the entire length of the trail without having to drive around corners.

The cost of this purchase of two lots is $200,000, with an estimate of $1,200 in closing costs, for a total of $201,200, to be paid by the park development program. Development of the trailhead will be budgeted in the 2001/06 CIP budget.
