CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 4

Meeting Date: 1/23/00

Subject/Title: East Bay Regional Park District License Agreement – Marsh Creek Trail

Submitted by: Ken De Silva, Park Services Manager

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager


RECOMMENDATION 
Approve the attached License Agreement with East Bay Regional Park District for the maintenance of Marsh Creek Regional Trail within the boundaries of the City of Brentwood.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND 
The Marsh Creek Regional Trail, in easternmost Contra Costa County, winds along Marsh Creek through farmland and urban areas of Brentwood and Oakley. The paved, multi-use trail is about 6.5 miles long and extends from Creekside Park in Brentwood to the Delta shores of Big Break. When completed, the trail will be 14 miles long and will connect the Delta region with the foothills of Morgan Territory Regional Preserve and Round Valley Regional Park east of Mt. Diablo State Park. Trail users can benefit from several community parks and greenbelts along the way. 

Currently, East Bay Regional Park District manages the trail from 300 feet south of Dainty Avenue north to Oakley. The District has never accepted the improved trail from Creekside Park north to Dainty as the trail was put in by a developer and was not to EBRPD standards. For the past year, staff has been working with EBRPD representatives, making minor repairs and improvements so that EBRPD would consider taking over maintenance of the entire trail. With this agreement, East Bay Regional Park District will maintain all aspects of the trail within our City limits. The City of Brentwood will continue to have access on any section of the trail; however, the District will assume all aspects of maintenance, repair and reconstruction of the area.

Marsh Creek Trail has been identified in the City of Brentwood’s Park and Trail master plan as the north to south trail under EBRPD maintenance that will ultimately connect to Los Vaqueros and Round Valley regional parks.
