CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 1

Meeting Date: May 27, 2003

Subject/Title: Approval of 2003/2008 Capital Improvement Program

Submitted By: Engineering: B. Grewal
Finance: P. Ehler

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution certifying and approving the Negative Declaration and adopting the 2003/2008 Capital Improvement Program for the City of Brentwood including roadway, park, sewer, water and other municipal improvements to be constructed during the next five years.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On July 26, 1994, the City Council approved the first five-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP budget was added to the City’s adopted 1994/95 budget. The City Council also authorized the creation of the CIP Team to plan, design and administer the projects outlined in the CIP report. The CIP Team is also responsible for updating the CIP report and preparing the fiscal year CIP budget. The attached CIP report represents the efforts of the CIP Team to present the City Council with an annual update.

On April 7, 2003, the City Council held a workshop on the proposed CIP report. As a result of this workshop, the following changes were made to the 2003/2008 City Budget:

Roadways:

McClarren Park Access Road decreased by 349,017.
Roadway Signing and Striping projects decreased by $20,000.
Traffic Calming Installations projects decreased by $60,000.

Community Facilities:

Brentwood Technology and Education Center projects increased by $3,000.
Community Events Center added – current unfunded at a total of $4 million.
Downtown Parking Structure added – total project is $12,651,000 - $8,651,400 from developer Contributions; $4 million from RDA.

On April 22, 2003, the City Council approved the report and referred it to the Planning Commission for a consideration of conformance to the City’s General Plan.

On May 6, 2003, the Planning Commission found the 2003/2008 Capital Improvement Program to be consistent with the City of Brentwood General Plan. A copy of the CIP report is available for public review in the City Clerk’s office, Engineering Department lobby, Community Development Department lobby, Parks and Recreation Department lobby, and at the Brentwood Library.

BACKGROUND
Adoption of the 2003/2008 CIP report will continue the five-year Capital Improvement Program for City projects. An annual update will take place in the year 2004 and every subsequent year.

A Negative Declaration has been prepared to address the potential environmental effects of the CIP. The Negative Declaration finds that no significant adverse impacts would result should this program be adopted. Therefore, staff recommends that the City Council certify the Negative Declaration and file a Notice of Determination with the County Clerk.

FISCAL IMPACT
The fiscal year 2003/04 costs from various non-General Fund sources are noted in the CIP report. Future year costs and revenues will be reviewed every year by the City Council as a part of the annual update and adoption of a new five-year CIP report.
