Enabling/Regulating Authority

Background Discussion

On February 1, 2005, the Board of County Commissioners accepted a Private Improvements Agreement securing replacement trees in the amount of $93,176.00.  Since that time the developer has been selling lots in this project and has complied with all the required private improvements.  This project has one remaining lot.  Due to the economic conditions and existing use restrictions, the property owner has not been able to finalize a transaction with a developer for this vacant portion.  The developer is requesting an extension of this private improvements agreement in order to complete those required improvements once the lot has been purchased.  The Public Works Department has reviewed the request and is in agreement with the Developer's request.

This agenda item is to extend the agreement and security to ensure the developer is not in default with the agreement previously provided.  Per Resolution R-14-02 adopted March 25, 2014, we will contact the developer to obtain a new Engineer of Record’s cost estimate reducing this private improvements agreement to the approved 130%.
