| CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 04
Meeting Date: August 27, 2002
Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution authorizing the execution of a Quitclaim Deed for Parcel “A” of Subdivision No. 8402 to Pulte Homes.
Submitted by: Engineering: B.Grewal/D.Galey
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Approve a Resolution authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk or their designees to execute a Quitclaim Deed to terminate the City’s interest in the Offer of Dedication of Parcel “A”, as shown on that certain final map entitled “Subdivision No. 8402 Brentwood Park”, filed September 7, 2001, in Book 434 of Maps, at Page 1, Contra Costa County and hereby conveying whatever interest the City may have in said parcel to Pulte Homes.
On August 28, 2001 by Resolution No. 2348, the City Council approved the final map of Subdivision No. 8402.
Parcel “A” was originally designed as a trailhead from the end of Iris Court to the trail planned through the subdivision along the east side of the Contra Costa County Flood Control Channel. Due to the difficulty with the slopes and grades of the east side of the Contra Costa County Flood Control Channel, the trail was designed along the west side only, with a bridge connecting the east side, and the connection from Iris Court was no longer needed. Pulte Homes has requested to incorporate this small isolated parcel into the 2 adjacent lots by a Lot Line Adjustment.
With this quitclaim, the City and the Landscaping and Lighting District for this subdivision can remove any maintenance cost for Parcel “A”.
