City Manager’s Report
April 15, 2015
Acacia Circles and Vista Verde Circles
At the March 18, 2015 Council Meeting, the Mayor and Council requested that I provide estimated fees and construction costs to facilitate conveyance of the five (5) existing Peninsula HOA tracts to the City as right-of-way.
The following are the estimates pursuant to the request:
1. City Engineer — $15,000
2. City Attorney — $2,000
3. Milling and Paving Improvements Project Cost — $182,000
The total estimated costs related to the conveyance of five (5) existing HOA tracts to the City is $199,000 for services by the City Engineer and City Attorney, and the resurfacing of said streets.
Staff’s findings are that the five (5) existing HOA tracts always have been treated as public streets and are not designed in such a manner as to indicate that the circles were ever intended to be private driveways or roads. The City has always maintained the circles as public right-of-way, as the circles serve multiple individually owned residential units. The circles were never intended to restrict public access to the residential units in the respective circles.
This matter will be on the April 15, 2015 agenda for discussion and possible direction to Staff and/or action.
