CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: 1/23/00
Subject/Title: East Bay Regional Park District License Agreement – Marsh
Submitted by: Ken De Silva, Park Services Manager
Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
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.
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.
