On May 24, 2001, by Resolution No. 01-37, Planning Commission approved
Tentative Subdivision Map No. 8413, with conditions.
On May 13, 2003, by Resolution No. 2850, City Council approved Final
Subdivision Map No. 8413, accepting improvement securities and approving a
Subdivision Improvement Agreement.
This subdivision, located west of Garin Parkway and south of Sycamore
Avenue, has been developed by Western Pacific Housing and contains 113
single-family residential lots. All public improvements required by the
project’s Conditions of Approval have been constructed and inspected for
conformance with the approved improvement plans including sewer, water and
storm drain lines, sidewalk, paving, streetlights, fiber optic conduit and
landscaping. As a part of this project, Western Pacific Housing allocated a
3.26 acre parcel adjacent to Oak Street for senior housing and a 2.74 acre
parcel adjacent to the Liberty Union High School for the future addition of
athletic fields. The Developer also constructed the expansion of the High
School student parking lot, through an agreement with the City to help
alleviate downtown parking and the School District in exchange for credit
against school impact fees. Western Pacific Housing provided Maintenance
Bonds to cover the twelve-month warranty period for all improvements.
As required by the conditions of approval and shown on the improvement
plans, the Developer has installed the following improvement quantities:
2,853 LF of 8” sewer lines, 1,202 LF of 12” sewer lines, 4,101 LF of 8”
waterline, 4,261 LF of 12” waterline, 6,590 LF of various diameter storm
drain, 12,177 LF of 5’ wide sidewalk, 6,087 LF of pavement, 12,212 LF of
curb and gutter, 50 streetlights, 6,106 LF of fiber optic conduit, and 2,000
SF of landscaping and irrigation.
When the Final Map was approved by the City Council, the right-of-way offers
of dedication were accepted subject to acceptance of improvements. The
improvements are now installed to support the new lots; therefore, it is the
appropriate time to accept the improvements, rights-of-way and easements as
offered on the Final Map.
Upon acceptance of improvements the City will incur annual costs in the
amount of approximately $42,000, associated with necessary maintenance of
streets, landscaping and utilities. Routine roadway maintenance will be
funded by the General Fund and Measure “C” gas tax, with sewer and water
maintenance funded through their respective enterprise funds. Landscaping
and Lighting Assessment District (LLD) No. 02-02 has been formed for this
subdivision and will be responsible for the street lighting and landscape
