Background
The Francisco Drive Right-Turn Pocket Project (Project) is located in El Dorado Hills at the intersection of Francisco Drive and El Dorado Hills Boulevard.  This intersection experiences high volumes of commuter traffic as Francisco Drive is used as a go-between from Green Valley Road to El Dorado Hills Boulevard.  The pocket turn lane will help to ease the flow of traffic onto El Dorado Hills Boulevard from Francisco Drive.
 
The parcel located at the south-west corner of that intersection is known as Wild Oaks Park and is owned by the El Dorado Hills Community Services District.  In order to construct the right-turn pocket lane and connect the multi-use trail running from Francisco Drive to El Dorado Hills Boulevard south (which is part of the Project), the County needs to acquire 0.1 acres.  The County and El Dorado Hills Community Services District have agreed on a nominal price of $1.00.  Construction for this Project is planned for fall of 2014.
 
Reason for Recommendation
In order to proceed with the Project as scheduled and start construction this year, Transportation is asking for approval on this Easement Acquisition Agreement.
 
Clerk of the Board Follow Up Actions
1) The Clerk will obtain the Chair's signature on the Easement Acquisition Agreement for Public Purposes.
2) The Clerk will return all executed original documents to Transportation for final processing.
