This subdivision, located south of Lone Tree Way and west of O’Hara Avenue,
has been developed by Meritage Homes (“Developer”) and contains 99
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, the Developer has constructed the
south side of Lone Tree Way widening and constructed O’Hara Avenue south of
Lone Tree Way across the project frontage including improvements to the
intersection of Lone Tree Way and O’Hara Avenue. An asphalt trail along the
Flood Control Channel on the west portion of the project has also been
constructed. The Developer 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:
8,045 LF (Lineal Feet) of 8” sewer lines, 4,751 LF of 8” waterlines, 3,942
LF of 12” waterlines, 14,404 LF of various diameter storm drains, 87,206 LF
of 5’ & 10’ wide sidewalk, 7,589 LF of pavement, 16,130 LF of curb and
gutter, 49 streetlights, 8,693 LF of fiber optic conduit, 116,386 SF (Square
Feet) of landscaping and irrigation and 1,130 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.
Upon acceptance of improvements the City will incur annual costs associated
with necessary maintenance of streets, landscaping and utilities. Routine
roadway maintenance will be funded by the General Fund and Measure “C”
transportation sales tax, with sewer and water maintenance funded through
their respective enterprise funds. Landscaping and Lighting Assessment
District (LLD) No. 03-2 has been formed for this subdivision and will be
responsible for the street lighting and landscape maintenance.
