CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 4

Meeting Date: February 13, 2007

Subject/Title: Adopt recommended names for new park facilities as suggested by the Parks and Recreation Commission.

Prepared By: Parks and Recreation: Felix Errico, Parks Planner

Submitted by: Craig Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation

RECOMMENDATION
Adopt recommended names for new park facilities as suggested by the Parks and Recreation Commission.

PREVIOUS ACTION

In June 2001, City Council of the City of Brentwood approved a policy regarding the naming/dedication of City facilities.

In May 2004, City Council approved park names as suggested by the Parks and Recreation Commission at their regular meeting of April 23, 2004.

BACKGROUND
In the last few years, the City of Brentwood has approved several subdivisions Castello Subdivision #8854 by D. R. Horton, Palmilla Subdivision #8729 by Pinn Brothers, and Steeplechase Subdivision #8864 by Suncrest Homes. The subdivisions include parks of ½ acre and larger. In all of the subdivisions, park concepts have been approved by the Parks and Recreation Commission. Some of these parks are in the process of been completed by the developers without City Council approved names.

To address this shortfall, park staff met with Park Naming Subcommittee of the Parks and Recreation Commission on November 22, 2006, to generate park names. The subcommittee asked staff to agendize proposed park names on the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting for approval.

On January 25, 2007, staff placed recommended proposed park names on the Parks and Recreation Commission agenda for discussion and recommendation. The Parks and Recreation Commission approved the subcommittee park names and the Commission directed staff to place the proposed park names on the next City Council meeting for approval.

The following park names with locations are being forwarded for City Council approval:
1. On the Castello Subdivision #8854, the Park Naming Committee chose Sage Glen Park. The park is named after the subdivision name.
2. On the Palmilla Subdivision #8729, the Park Naming Committee chose Marsh Creek Park North, Marsh Creek Park South, Mandevilla Park and Palmilla Park. Two of the parks are adjacent to Marsh Creek and are named after the creek. One of the parks is named after the Palmilla subdivision and the last park is adjacent to Mandevilla Street and the park is named after the street.
3. On Steeplechase Subdivision #8864, the Park Naming Committee chose Steeplechase Park. The park is named after the subdivision name.

FISCAL IMPACT

As part of the subdivision approval process, the developers agreed to Condition Of Approval (COA). As part of the COA, it requires developers prepare a master plan for the parks, receive approval of the park master plans from the Parks and Recreation Commission, prepare construction documents for the improvements and afterward construct the parks. Included in the approved park construction documents is the installation of park signs. Adopting recommended names for new park facilities by City Council will provide an essential component by the developer to order and install appropriate park signs.

Upon the completion of the park improvements, acceptance by City Council of the civil improvements for the subdivisions which include the parks, the park improvements will be maintained by the City under a Landscape and Lighting District established by the developer as part of the COA process.
