TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Attorney to accept an easement deed for alley widening adjacent to 1593 - 1643 Pacific Avenue.  (District 1)
 
DISCUSSION
It is the goal of the Department of Public Works to widen streets and alleys to the standards established in the City's General Plan. When significant new development is proposed, the public rights-of-way adjacent to the site are reviewed for sufficiency to accommodate the new development. For the construction of a 42-unit apartment complex addressed as 1593 - 1643 Pacific Avenue, the dedication of additional alley width is recommended. In particular, the existing 16-foot wide alley should be widened on the east side by 2 feet, to a total width of 18 feet. The standard alley width of 20 feet will be achieved when property on the west side of the alley is improved and a public alley dedication of an additional 2 feet is recorded. A map of the area to be dedicated is attached as Exhibit A.
 
The developer of the subject property agreed to development conditions that include the above-described dedication. This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Lori A.
Conway on November 9, 2006. In conformance with the California Environmental Quality Act, Categorical Exemption No. CEP 24-03 was issued for this project.
 
TIMING CONSIDERATIONS
City Council action on this matter is not time critical.
 
FISCAL IMPACT
A document processing fee of $490 was paid by the developer and deposited in the General Fund (GP) in the Department of Public Works (PW).
