PREVIOUS ACTION
None

BACKGROUND
Due to new developments in the north Brentwood area, the opening of the proposed 2006 school site was accelerated to meet the demand created by these new developments, which has made it necessary to open the Grant Street Elementary School in 2005. City staff is anxious to proceed with the design contract with Milani & Associates for the Grant Street School Infrastructure Improvements Project. This is a critical project that will design O’Hara Avenue from Sand Creek Road to it’s terminus just north of the EBMUD Aqueduct, Anderson Lane from O’Hara Avenue to Grant Street, and Grant Street from its existing terminus at Lone Oak Road to O’Hara Avenue, providing traffic circulation for the new elementary school located on the southwest corner of Grant Street and Anderson Lane. The infrastructure improvements are included in the master planned roadway infrastructure. The Brentwood Union School District is scheduled to begin construction of the new elementary school in April 2004, and open the school to the public in July 2005. Therefore, it is critical the City proceed with the design of the required Infrastructure improvements and begin construction in spring / summer of 2004, to meet the Brentwood Union School District’s schedule.

This contract is for the design of the necessary infrastructure. The developer, Braddock & Logan has filed an application for Tentative Subdivision Map No. 8788, and will be conditioned to construct the infrastructure improvements. If the developer’s schedule does not meet the School Districts required schedule for the opening of the new school, then the City intends to move forward with the project as a CIP Project and construct the necessary improvements for the school site only (depicted as black on the map).

This Project will provide the access from Grant Street and O’Hara Avenue to the proposed elementary school, and improve transportation infrastructure and vehicular circulation patterns.

FISCAL IMPACT
The design cost associated with this work for the Grant Street School Infrastructure Improvements Project will be funded through roadway facility fees. The future development and the school district will pay their fair share. It is currently proposed that the Braddock & Logan Subdivision No. 8788 will construct these improvements as part of their development, which is currently being processed. However, this design contract will ensure that these improvements will be complete to facilitate the opening of the new school. Should the current schedule of Subdivision No. 8788 be delayed or the developer choose not to move forward, the infrastructure improvements needed to support the school would be constructed by the City and a benefit district established for the City to recoup it’s costs. Staff would return to Council for further consideration of the construction work necessary to build the needed infrastructure.
