CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 8

Meeting Date: March 9, 2004

Subject/Title: Temporary Road Closure - Chestnut Street from Third Street to Garin Parkway for approximately twenty (20) working days.

Prepared by: Engineering: P. Eldredge/R. Craig

Submitted by: Engineering: B. Grewal

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution authorizing staff to temporarily close Chestnut Street from Third Street to Garin Parkway for twenty (20) working days for the construction of all necessary utility connections.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On September 2, 2003, by Planning Commission Resolution No. 03-18, the Planning Commission approved Tentative Subdivision Map No. 8426, with conditions.

BACKGROUND
The segment of construction from Third Street to Garin Parkway will be performed by Signature Properties as outlined in the Conditions of Approval for the development of Subdivision No. 8426. The work scheduled includes constructing new portions of Chestnut Street to the ultimate configurations, as well as 34 water and sewer utility connections.

Additionally the Developer will utilize this closure to upgrade a portion of the existing downtown sewer system. This work consists of installing a new 12” sewer line and manhole from the existing line at Chestnut Street and Third Street to an existing manhole at Chestnut Street and Birchwood Road. Although the majority of this work would not require a complete closure, there is certainly an economy of scale associated with building it in conjunction with the utility connections. In order to proceed in a timely manner, the closure of the roadway is the safest way possible to complete the required improvements. Due to the existing water and sewer line in Chestnut Street, this work is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid March 2004 and will coincide with the Brentwood Union School District Spring Break (March 15 - 26, 2004).

The Developer and the City will notify the citizens and service providers who are most impacted
at least five (5) days prior to the road closure. The means of notification will include mailing notices and affixing door hangers to residents, publishing closure information in local papers indicating the proposed road closure and detour area, and updating the City's Traffic Alert section on the web site.

The detour plan for these improvements has been reviewed and approved by the City Engineer and will be implemented prior to construction. The City Engineer will have the discretion of determining when to allow Signature Properties to proceed with the work and notifying all emergency services as well as the post office of this closure.

FISCAL IMPACT
There is no fiscal impact associated with the closure of this roadway, as all applicable costs will be the responsibility of the Developer. However, the City will be reimbursing Signature Properties for the installation of the 12” sewer line upon approval of a reimbursement agreement by the City Council.
