CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 20

Meeting Date: May 25, 2004

Subject/Title: Approve a resolution certifying the Negative Declaration and adopting the 2004/05-2008/09 Capital Improvement Program

Prepared by: Gail Leech, Management Analyst

Submitted by: Pamela Ehler, Director of Finance and Information Systems

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a resolution certifying the Negative Declaration and adopting the 2004/05-2008/09 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 13, 2004, the City Council held a workshop on the proposed CIP report. As a result of this workshop, the following changes were made to the 2004/05-2008/09 City Budget:

Roadways:

Brentwood Boulevard Widening Central - In order to expedite this project, the project was moved up from 05-06 to 04-05. The project expenditures originally budgeted for 05-06 were split as follows:

04-05 - $792,500 05-06 - $425,000

Parks and Recreation:

Village Community Resource Center Relocation – Moved this project start date from 05-06 to 04-05. The $200,000 in budgeted expenditures for 05-06 were moved to 04-05.

Community Facilities:

Specific Plan – Expenditures for this project were altered to reflect the appropriate design costs as follows:

03-04 From $300,000 to $213,292 04-05 From $182,486 to $515,486

On May 11, 2004, 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 18, 2004, the Planning Commission found the 2004/05-2008/09 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 lobby, Parks and Recreation lobby and at the Brentwood library.

BACKGROUND
Adoption of the 2004/05-2008/09 CIP report will continue the five-year Capital Improvement Program for City projects. An annual update will take place in the year 2005 and every subsequent year. The preparation of this annual budget assists staff in determining and updating our development fee program that finances the majority of these projects.

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 2004/05 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.
