CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 16

Meeting Date: August 10, 2004

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution accepting Improvements for Hearthstone, Morrison Homes, Subdivision No. 7950.

Prepared by: Engineering: D. Galey

Submitted by: Engineering: B. Grewal

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution accepting the right-of-way offers of dedication in-fee; accepting easements, abutter’s rights and sub-surface mineral and water rights as shown on the final map; accepting all on and off-site public improvements for maintenance; accepting Subdivision Maintenance Bonds and releasing the Subdivision Improvement Securities for Hearthstone, Morrison Homes, Subdivision No. 7950, located south of Sand Creek Road and west of Fairview Avenue.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On July 7, 1998 by Resolution No. 98-22, Planning Commission approved Tentative Subdivision Map 7950, with conditions.

On October 10, 2000 by Resolution No. 2169, City Council approved Final Subdivision Map No. 7950, accepting improvement securities and approving a Subdivision Improvement Agreement.

BACKGROUND
The Final Map is located south of Sand Creek Road and west of Fairview Avenue, and was recorded on October 24, 2000, in Book 425 of Maps, at Page 50, Contra Costa County Records. The Subdivision contains 82 single-family residential lots. All the public improvements as required by the conditions of approval for this subdivision have been constructed and inspected by the City inspector. In conjunction with the Final Map, the Developer has provided improvement securities (Performance and Payment Bonds) for these improvements. A final inspection of these improvements found them to be complete and in conformance with the approved improvement plans.

Following are the major improvement quantities installed: 3,427 LF of 8” sanitary sewer lines, 2,076 LF of 8” waterlines, 1,365 LF of 12” waterlines, 894 LF of 18” storm drain lines, 3,400 LF of sidewalk, 3,400 LF of curb and gutter, 34,000 SF of pavement and 22 streetlights.

The parcels were offered for dedication on the Final Map. When the Final Map was approved by City Council, the offers of dedication were accepted subject to acceptance of improvements. Now that the said parcels are improved, the City must accept the improvements in order to obtain rights to the parcels offered on the Final Map. The Developer of Subdivision No. 7950, Morrison Homes, has already provided a Maintenance Bond (Bond No. 400SZ3431 in the amount of $231,984) to cover the twelve-month warranty period for the on-site improvements.

FISCAL IMPACT
After the acceptance of improvements, the City will then incur annual costs in the amount of approximately $13,000 for on-site improvements associated with street sweeping and necessary repairs to streets and utilities. Regular roadway maintenance will be funded by the General Fund, Measure “C”, gas tax and sewer and water maintenance will be funded through respective enterprise funds. The Lighting and Assessment Maintenance District (LLD No. 95-7) has been formed for this subdivision and will be responsible for the street lighting and landscape maintenance.
