Approve a Resolution accepting the offers of dedication in fee for parcels “A”, ”B” and “C” for public use as shown on the Final Map and accepting all park improvements for maintenance, accepting the Park Maintenance Bond in the amount of $38,091.20 and releasing the Park Improvement Securities for Brentwood Lakes Unit #6, Brookfield Homes, Subdivision No. 8322, located north of Balfour Road and west of West Country Club Drive.
On March 9, 1993, the Planning Commission approved Planning Commission Resolution No. 93-27, approving Tentative Subdivision Map No. 7705 with conditions.
On July 25, 2000, the City Council approved Resolution No 2117, approving the Final Map of Subdivision No. 8322 with improvement securities and a Subdivision Improvement Agreement.
The Final Map containing this park and open space is located north of Balfour Road and west of West Country Club Drive, and was recorded on August 9, 2000, in Book 422 of Maps, at page 34, Contra Costa County records. The subdivision contains 174 single-family residential lots and an 8.70-acre park and open space area (2.05 acres developed park and 6.65 acres of open space). 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 roadway improvements for this development have not been accepted by the City, and are not ready for acceptance at this time. The City is accepting the park only at this time, so it may be opened for use to the public. The park contains a sitting area and landscaped open space.
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. 8322, Brookfield Homes, has already provided a Park Maintenance Bond (Bond No. 257718 for $38,091.20) to cover the twelve-month warranty period for the park and open space improvements.
After the acceptance of park improvements, the City will then incur costs in the amount of $32,000 per year for landscape maintenance, and will be funded by Citywide Park Maintenance District 98-1.
