Arch Beach Heights Park bid
A new bid for construction of the revised plan for Arch Beach Heights was unanimously approved. A $309,950 contract was awarded to Green Horizons Landscape and Maintenance. The project includes improvements to the already-funded pedestrian trail proposed for construction on portions of the unimproved rights-of-way known as Cortez Avenue and Palo Alto Street. The city manager was also authorized to acquire additional land for open space at a cost of $40,000, plus up to $5,000 in expenses.
WHAT IT MEANS
The improvements include concrete stairs, a decomposed granite pathway, landscaping, irrigation and fuel modification and connect to the existing sewer lift station access road on Alisos and Oro rights-of-way, which will also serve as part of the trail.
Abandonment of easements
Restoration of public facilities after the 2005 landslide included some minor relocations to improve public safety or to accommodate new facilities such as the Bluebird Canyon storm drain. Easements were granted by the landslide victims, but the city is obliged to abandon those no longer needed.
The council approved a resolution that initiates the process of abandoning old and unnecessary rights of way in Bluebird Canyon and a small portion of Flamingo Road right-of-way.
WHAT IT MEANS
A hearing will be scheduled on the proposed abandonment. Notice of the hearing will be published or posted by the City Clerk.
