Adopt a Resolution accepting all landscaped public improvements for
maintenance along the American Avenue/Heritage High School median and
roadway frontage and releasing the associated security bonds for these
The Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) hired Lathrop Construction
Company to complete all on and off-site improvements associated with the
construction of the new Heritage High School. Within these improvements,
landscaping was installed in the public right-of-way on American Avenue from
Balfour Road up to the southern property of Heritage High School.
The Heritage High School development as shown on the improvement plans has
installed approximately 17,166 square feet of landscaping and irrigation
work. All public landscaping improvements required by the development of the
high school have been constructed and inspected for conformance with the
approved improvement plans.
The School District Contractor is presently working on punch list items for
the remaining roadway improvements and this acceptance should be forthcoming
by the end of the year. The School District has requested immediate
acceptance of the landscaping improvements since they do not have the staff
or expertise to continue to maintain the public landscaping.
Upon acceptance of improvements the City will incur annual costs in the
amount of approximately $4,800 associated with necessary maintenance of this
landscaping. 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.
