RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution amending the 2005/06 – 2009/10 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) to reinstate the O’Hara Loop Realignment (Second Street Extension), CIP Project No. 336-3145, and amend the project budget in the amount of $50,000, in order to finalize the purchase of the right-of-way currently being used for public improvements in connection with the extension of Second Street.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On May 25, 2004, by Resolution No. 2004-113, City Council approved the 2004/05 – 2008/09 Capital Improvement Program (CIP), which included the O’Hara Loop Realignment, CIP Project No. 336-3145.

On August 10, 2004, by Resolution No. 2004-196, City Council approved the contract documents and awarded the construction contract for the O’Hara Loop Realignment, CIP Project No. 336-3145, to Bay Cities Paving & Grading, Inc. and amended the CIP Budget Sheet.

On February 14, 2006, by Resolution No. 2006-25, City Council accepted the work performed by Bay Cities Paving & Grading, Inc., for the construction of the O’Hara Loop Realignment (Second Street Extension), CIP Project No. 336-3145.

BACKGROUND
The extension of Second Street from O’Hara Avenue to Central Boulevard was opened to the public in April 2005. This project extended Second Street from Central Boulevard to O’Hara Avenue as a four lane roadway with median islands, bike lanes, masonry wall, landscaping and two traffic signals and has improved traffic flow to and from the downtown area. The improvements were accepted by Council on February 14, 2006 and a Notice of Completion was filed with the County Clerk on February 23, 2005.

The City acquired the property necessary to realign O’Hara Avenue and extend Second Street back in 1996. At the time, right-of-way was not required to construct a sidewalk and soundwall on the east side of the roadway, as well as easements for the new signal equipment at the apartment complex entrance, and a utility easement for a power source for the traffic signal and irrigation controller. Since the design for the project had not yet begun, these items were unknown at the time.

When the design was completed and the additional right-of-way and easements were determined, the City entered into a Permit to Enter and Construct with the Equus Group/Towncenter Commons. The City has been working on the most appropriate mechanism to acquire the right-of-way. It has been determined the legal course of action for this project is to purchase the necessary right-of-way and staff felt that this acquisition would be complete prior to the end of this project; therefore, this project was not included in the current CIP Budget.

FISCAL IMPACT
The total increase to the budget required to complete the right-of-way transaction is not to exceed $50,000. The increase is a one-time charge which will be funded through Roadway Facility Fees. Staff has confirmed with the Finance Department that there are sufficient funds to cover the proposed amended budget, no revenue offsets are expected and there will be no known future reduction of costs to this project.
