On March 17, 1998, the Planning Commission approved Planning Commission Resolution No. 98-07, approving Tentative Subdivision Map No. 8069 with conditions.
On April 13, 1999, the City Council approved Resolution No. 99-92, approving the Final Map of Subdivision No. 8069 with improvement securities and a Subdivision Improvement Agreement.
The Final Map is located in SPA “L” west of Minnesota Avenue and north of Sand Creek, and was recorded on May 3, 1999, in Book 409 of Maps, at page 31, Contra Costa County records. The subdivision contains 95 single-family residential lots. In conjunction with the Final Map, the developer provided improvement securities (Performance and Payment Bonds) for these improvements. A final inspection of these improvements found them to be complete and 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 No. 8069, Hallmark, Morrison Homes, has already provided a Maintenance Bond for In-Tract Improvements (Bond No.411365 for $279,504.00) to cover the twelve-month warranty period for these improvements.
After the acceptance of improvements, the City will then incur costs of $4,300.00 per year, associated with street sweeping and necessary repairs to streets and utilities. A Lighting and Assessment Maintenance District (LLD 99-3) has been formed for this subdivision and will be responsible for the street lighting and landscape maintenance.
