Meeting Date: November 28, 2000

Subject/Title: Subdivision Improvement Agreement Amendment, Subdivision 8310

Submitted by: Engineering: John Stevenson/City Attorney: Dennis Beougher

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

Approve the amendment to the Subdivision Improvement Agreement to include a portion of the realigned Concord Avenue consisting of approximately 300 linear feet of roadway, traffic signal and utilities.

Final Map 8310 went before Council on October 10, 2000 and was approved.

The original conditions of approval associated with Final Map 8310 state that the subdivider will construct a portion of Balfour Road and realigned Concord Avenue. Discussions involving the portion of road on the north side of Balfour have evolved and it is clear that this portion of the road could be included in the first phase of construction in order to facilitate the fire station construction. The subdivider has informed staff that they have construction crews available to start work immediately and could include the 300 linear feet of Muir Drive north of Balfour Road necessary to access the fire station. The ability to construct now will allow the anticipated construction of the new fire station to continue on schedule, which benefits everyone in the surrounding areas.

Funding of the traffic signal will be split 50% to SunCal and 50% to the City. Funding of the City’s portion of the road, traffic signal and utilities will be through the Roadway Facility Fee account.
