The project also includes on-site parking, two neighborhood parks, recreational amenities, pedestrian pathways, landscaping, lighting, streetscape improvements, and a pedestrian bridge over the Arroyo Seco channel to connect the two sides of the project site. The Planned Development proposes rezoning the project site to establish development standards consistent with the Arroyo Vista Neighborhood Plan, adopted in 2007. The Development Agreement includes a financial contribution towards off-site pedestrian and bicycle improvements that will be constructed by the City in the future.

. Location: north side of Las Positas Road, south of Arroyo Vista Road and west of Bennett Drive, on either side of the Arroyo Seco Channel

. Site Area: 29 acres

Associate Planner Lori Parks presented the staff report.

In response to CM Carling, Ms. Parks confirmed there would be a homeowners association that will be responsible for a lot of the maintenance of the common areas. Assistant City Engineer Bob Vinn said the homeowners association would be responsible for the maintenance of the on-site amenities and the homes in the development would be responsible for the maintenance of the Arroyo Seco Trail and additional landscaping through a Landscape Maintenance District. He said each end of the pedestrian bridge would have an ADA pedestrian lift.

In response to questions by VM Spedowfski, Mr. Vinn confirmed there would be two traffic signals; one at the intersection of Las Positas and Arroyo Vista, and the other at the intersection of Las Positas and Contractor's Place. He said the City would maintain the public infrastructure within the site including roadways, sewer, water and storm drains.

In response to questions by CM Coomber, Ms. Parks said the tree survey concluded that all were non-native and not worth preserving.

Mayor Marchand expressed concerns about the homeless using the pedestrian bridge lift as a shelter and the use of the community garden.

Katia Kamangar, Executive Vice President, applicant, Summerhill Homes, presented an overview of the project.

Roman DeSoto, R3 Studios, reviewed the landscaping and open space elements of the project.

Mayor Marchand opened the public hearing. There were no speakers and the hearing was closed.

In response to questions by CM Coomber, Mr. DeSoto said the proposed grasses were non-invasive species but would include more native plant material. Ms. Kamangar said ramps in lieu of stairs to the pedestrian bridge would be reviewed with staff again.

In response to questions by VM Spedowfski, Ms. Kamangar said elevators would be an option to select units. Options for pedestrian access to the development were explained. VM Spedowfski requested signage in the buffer area along Las Positas Road, the elimination of the community gardens to provide a larger, more natural children's play area, and the installation of more secure mailboxes.

CM Woerner said this was a good infill project. In response to his questions, Community Development Director Paul Spence said the green space, park and trail space provided the amount required. City Manager Marc Roberts said the fees were going to Livermore Area Recreation and Park District (LARPD) for larger scale green spaces. He said the project was paying $5 million in park fees to enhance and upgrade facilities; the closest park was 0.7 miles away. The neighborhood plan includes two neighborhood parks on each side of the site that needed to be a minimum of .2 acres up to acre, which exceeded the requirement.

Mayor Marchand said he liked the architecture. He expressed concerns about the homeless using the pedestrian bridge lift as a shelter and the management of the community garden.

In response to questions by CM Coomber, Mr. Vinn said the speed limit was 30 mph. He said a future traffic survey could determine a possible reduction in the speed limit.

VM Spedowfski said he preferred lower density on the site and more open space. He did like the trail work.
