The Final Map is located in SPA ”L”, east of Fairview Avenue and south of Grant Street, 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 and two parks in total of 0.55-acres. 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 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. 8146, Pulte Homes, has already provided a Maintenance Bond (Bond No. 5947866-0001 in the amount of $158,578.00) to cover the twelve-month warranty period for these improvements. The City is accepting the park at this time, so it may be opened for use to the public.
After the acceptance of park improvements, the City will then incur costs in the amount of $5,500 per year for landscape maintenance, and will be funded by Citywide Park Maintenance District 98-1.
