Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution approving revision of the Ponderosa Neighborhood Park CIP budget for fiscal year 2002/2003

Approve a Resolution approving revision of the Ponderosa Neighborhood Park CIP budget for fiscal year 2002/2003.
This CIP project was approved as part of the 2002/2003 Capital Improvement Program that was approved by City Council on May 28, 2002.
The Ponderosa Neighborhood Park CIP Project needs to be revised because the purchase of this piece of property is necessary for completion of the trail that runs south to north in SPA L, and connects from Sand Creek Road to Grant Street. The trail runs on both the property that is being developed by Western Pacific Homes (Subdivision 8395) and the proposed Ponderosa Homes development (Subdivision 8529).
When the two above projects were originally conditioned, it was expected that the Western Pacific Homes Subdivision would mobilize first, in 2002, with Ponderosa Homes Subdivison following in 2003. Western Pacific Homes has moved forward and Ponderosa Homes has delayed the start of their project. As a result, Ponderosa Homes has not purchased the property for their project from the Carlisle family.
The Western Pacific Subdivision was conditioned to compete the landscape areas of the trail adjacent to the park. They are also conditioned to dedicate the land in this area to the City.
The Ponderosa Subdivision was conditioned to develop the park, which is adjacent to the trail and was required to coordinate the alignment of the pedestrian/bicycle under crossing at Sand Creek Road with Subdivision 8395. The requirement indicated that this might require additional right-of-way along the boundary property.
Western Pacific is ready to move forward with construction and landscaping of the trail section. Ponderosa Homes has not yet purchased the property. As a result, in order to facilitate Western Pacific’s timeline, the City has stepped in to negotiate purchase of the necessary property from the Carlisle family with the assistance of Ponderosa Homes. If the process had moved forward as originally intended in 2001, Ponderosa would have purchased the property, to be reimbursed by the City. Instead, the City is moving forward to purchase the property directly, eliminating the need to reimburse Ponderosa.
When Ponderosa Homes moves forward with their subdivision, they will purchase the remainder of the property necessary for the park and will be reimbursed as per the approved development agreement by the City.
$65,000 will be charged to Ponderosa Neighborhood Park CIP project ($60,000 land/$5,000 escrow fees/administration). Approval of this item will facilitate entering into an agreement with the property owner for purchase of the property.
