CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 7

Meeting Date: May 23, 2006

Subject/Title: Adopt a Resolution accepting Improvements for Sterling Preserve I, Meritage Homes Subdivision No. 8453, located north of Grant Street and east of Fairview Avenue.

Prepared by: Public Works: D. Galey

Submitted by: Public Works: B. Grewal

RECOMMENDATION
Adopt 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 public improvements for maintenance; accepting the Subdivision Maintenance Bond and releasing the Subdivision Improvement Securities for Sterling Preserve I, Meritage Homes Subdivision No. 8453, located north of Grant Street and east of Fairview Avenue.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On June 5, 2001, by Resolution No. 01-47, Planning Commission approved Tentative Subdivision Map No. 8453, with conditions.

On May 14, 2002, by Resolution No. 2541, City Council approved Final Subdivision Map No. 8453, accepting improvement securities and approving a Subdivision Improvement Agreement.

BACKGROUND
This subdivision, located north of Grant Street and east of Fairview Avenue, has been developed by Meritage Homes and contains 53 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, Meritage Homes constructed the east side Fairview Avenue widening, north of Grant Street, as well as a regional trail and landscaping along the EDMUD aqueduct south of the project. Meritage Homes has 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: 3,750 LF of 8” sewer lines, 1,806 LF of 12” sewer lines, 2,395 LF of 8” waterline, 1,554 LF of 12” waterline, 3,464 LF of various diameter storm drain, 6,810 LF of 5’ wide sidewalk, 3,820 LF of pavement, 6,810 LF of curb and gutter, 23 streetlights, 3,850 LF of fiber optic conduit, 120,545 SF of landscaping and irrigation and 4,340 LF of asphalt trail.

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.

FISCAL IMPACT
Upon acceptance of improvements the City will incur annual costs in the amount of approximately $59,875, 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. 99-03 has been formed for this subdivision and will be responsible for the street lighting and landscape maintenance.
