Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Approval of a Resolution accepting the offers of dedication of the street right-of-ways
for Empress Lane, Dawn Drive, Legend Lane, Camden Court, Regal Drive, and Fairview
Avenue widening, accepting Parcel ‘B,’ accepting public improvements for maintenance
(excluding Fairview Avenue landscaping and EBMUD right-of-way landscaping with
the soundwall), accepting the subdivision Maintenance Bond and releasing the
subdivision Performance and Payment Bonds for Subdivision 8055, Hofmann, located
in SPA ”L”, east of Fairview and south of Lone Tree Way.
On July 27, 1999, by Resolution No. 99-181, City Council approved the Final
Map of Subdivision 8055, with improvement securities and subdivision improvement
The Final Map is located south of Lone Tree Way and east of Fairview Avenue
and was recorded on August 12, 1999, in Book 413 of Maps, at page 15, Contra
Costa County records. The subdivision contains 65 single-family residential
lots. In conjunction with the Final Map, the developer provided Performance
and Payment Bonds for these improvements. A final inspection of the street
improvements found them to be completed in conformance with the approved improvement
Fairview Avenue landscaping and EBMUD right of way landscaping with the soundwall
have not yet been completed, so the associated bond for these improvements
cannot be released at this time.
The streets were offered for dedication on the Final map. The streets offered
for dedication include Empress Lane, Dawn Drive, Legend Lane, Camden Court,
Regal Drive, and Fairview Avenue widening. When the Final Map was approved
by the City Council, the offers of dedication were accepted subject to the
acceptance of improvements. Now that the streets are improved, the City must
accept the improvements in order to obtain rights to the roads and parcels
offered on the final map. The developer of Subdivision 8055, Hofmann, has already
provided a Maintenance Bond (Bond No. 11133389988M for $262,800.00) to cover
the twelve-month warranty period for these improvements. After the twelve months,
the City will then incur costs, the amount of which is unknown at this time,
associated with street sweeping and necessary repairs to streets and/or utilities.
Lighting and Landscape District 99-3, has been formed for this subdivision
and will be responsible for the street lighting and landscape maintenance.
