On July 27, 1999, the City Council approved Resolution No 99-177; approving the Final Map of Subdivision 8172 with improvement securities and subdivision improvement agreement.
The Final Map is located on the southerly side of Grant Street and west of Minnesota Avenue, and was recorded on August 11, 1999, in Book 413 of Maps, at page 11, Contra Costa County records. The subdivision contains 42 single-family residential lots. In conjunction with the Final Map, the developer provided Performance and Payment Bonds for these improvements. A final inspection of these improvements 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 8172, Pulte Homes, has already provided a Maintenance Bond (bond No. SM2261 for $216,290.40) to cover the twelve-month warranty period for these improvements.
After the acceptance of improvements, 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. A Lighting and Landscape Maintenance District (LLD 98-5) has been formed for this subdivision and will be responsible for the street lighting and landscape maintenance.
