RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution accepting the offers of dedication in fee for Sunflower Lane, Dawnview Drive, Horne Court and Fairview Avenue Widening, the areas designated as “Public Utility Easements” or “PUE”, all abutters’ rights and sub surface and mineral rights for public use as shown on the Final Map, and accepting public improvements for maintenance (excluding the areas designated as parcels “A” and “B”), accepting the subdivision Maintenance Bond and Cash Bond for Parcels “A” and “B” and releasing the subdivision Performance and Payment Bonds for Subdivision 8146, Laurelwood Estates Unit 1 by Pulte Homes, located in SPA ”L” east of Fairview Avenue and south of Grant Street.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On June 3, 1997, by Planning Commission Resolution No. 97-21, the Planning Commission approved Tentative Subdivision Map 8033, with conditions.

On August 11, 1999, by Resolution No 99-149, the City Council approved the Final Map of Subdivision 8146, with improvement securities and subdivision improvement agreement.

BACKGROUND
The Final Map is located in SPA ”L”, east of Fairview Avenue and south of Minnesota Avenue and was recorded on September 1, 1998, in Book 402 of Maps, at page 32, Contra Costa County Records. The subdivision contains 58 single-family residential lots. In conjunction with the Final Map, the Developer provided Performance and Payment Bonds for these improvements. A final inspection of all the streets rights of way shown thereon (Sunflower Lane, Dawnview Drive, Horne Court and Fairview Avenue Widening), and “PUE” (public utility easements) found them to be completed in conformance with the approved improvement plans.

The parcels were offered for dedication on the Final Map. When the Final Map was approved by the City Council, the offers of dedication were accepted subject to acceptance of improvements. Now that the parcels are improved, the City must accept the improvements in order to obtain rights to the parcels offered on the Final Map. The Developer of Subdivision 8146, Pulte Homes, has already provided a Maintenance Bond (Bond No. 6123141 in the amount of $91,155.60) to cover the twelve month warranty period for these improvements and a Cash Bond for parcels “A” and “B”.

FISCAL IMPACT
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 Landscaping District 99-3 has been formed for this subdivision and will be responsible for the street lighting and landscape maintenance.
