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