Current Council Agenda and Past Meeting Information

CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 24

Meeting Date: May 24, 2005

Subject/Title: Authorize staff to release permits to the Deer Ridge Home Builders due to real progress toward completion of subdivision improvements.

Prepared by: Randy Kidwell, Chief Building Official

Submitted by: Howard Sword, Director, Community Development Department


RECOMMENDATION
Release the Building Division to issue an additional 100 permits, holding the final 100 permits, until progress is made, to the satisfaction of the City Engineer, on the construction of the extension of Foothill Blvd. and John Muir Parkway.

PREVIOUS ACTION
Direct Staff to:
• Resume issuing new home permits to the Deer Ridge Home Builders by authorizing 106 permits to be issued immediately.

• Authorize staff to enter into a letter agreement with the remaining Home Builders, KB Homes and D.R. Horton Home Builders, guaranteeing completion of the remaining infrastructure improvements, secured by withholding the final 100 permits; 50 from each developer.

• Return to Council on a monthly basis with a progress report and possibly authorizing additional permit releases.

BACKGROUND
Credible progress has been made at the Deer Ridge Subdivision.

• Spyglass second lift has been completed.

• Landscaping at the corner of Foothill and Balfour has been completed.

• Plans for the Foothill extension and the John Muir Parkway extension have been prepared by Bellecci and Associates and are with the Engineering Department.

• Don Burton Construction Management has begun to enter into contract with contractors to completion of the subdivision improvement punch lists. Some critical improvements have been completed, such as getting power to and bringing on line the irrigation controller servicing the south east portion of the project and completing much of the weed abatement.

• All of the work for the Zone 3 Pump Station is complete with the exception of the onsite testing and fine programming.
• The bridge railing design was determined to be inadequate and is back with their Engineer for corrections.

Staff continues to meet weekly with all the participants to insure that the process is on track and that details are not overlooked.

FISCAL IMPACT
Continuing to withhold permits adversely effects facility fee cash flow.
