Body
DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION
Negotiations concluded with property owners, Matthew and Jonalin McCollum, securing the County's interest in the fifteenth of twenty-eight project acquisition parcels, and a settlement has been reached that is representative of the appraised value rounded to a compensatory value of the necessary land rights.
 
The Community Development Agency, Transportation Division (Transportation) recommends that the Board Chair sign the Easement Acquisition Agreement for Public Purposes for the Diamond Springs Parkway - Phase 1A - SR-49 Realignment Project (Project). The Temporary Construction Easement acquisition is necessary for construction of the Project.
 
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
Transportation is currently in the design phase of the project. Originally referred to as the "Missouri Flat Pleasant Valley Connector", this project will provide improved traffic circulation and safety through and around the historic town of Diamond Springs. Phase 1A is the first of two phases necessary to complete the entire project design and includes realigning, widening and improvements to SR-49 from the new parkway intersection south to Pleasant Valley Road and signalization of multiple intersections. While the full benefit will not be realized until completion of all phases of the project, Phase1A will add benefit to the County's traffic circulation and independent utility.
 
The Project is included in the Community Development Agency's 2014 Capital Improvement Program as adopted by the Board of Supervisors on June 24, 2014 (Item No. 64) and is subject to the California Environmental Quality Act. The Environmental Impact Report was approved by the Board of Supervisors on May 24, 2011 (Item No. 39). Construction is anticipated to begin in 2016.
