The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 April 28 to extend the performance completion dates for the infrastructure of four approved subdivision maps, including the Lash Development subdivision off of Camino De Nog.
The dates by which the infrastructure must be completed, in the absence of a subsequent time extension, is now April 28, 2012, for the Lash subdivision and the other three projects. The agreements cover completion of road, water, sewer, and other
infrastructure improvements but do not require completion of the homes or other lot improvements themselves.
A tentative parcel map becomes a final map after all conditions of the tentative map, other than those for which permits cannot be issued until a final map is recorded, are fulfilled. A final map is required for grading and building permits. The conditions of a final map include secured agreements to ensure that the infrastructure will be built and that payment for labor and materials used to build the infrastructure will be made.
Improvements identified in a secured agreement are required to be completed within two years of the approval of the final map, although if circumstances prevent the improvements from being completed by the agreement’s expiration additional time may be requested to complete the infrastructure.
The county’s Department of Public Works reviews existing agreements and their bonding requirements to determine if time extensions are warranted. The subdivision maps approved for time extensions all have adequate security to guarantee completion of the remaining work.
The Camino De Nog subdivision is officially owned by the Lash
Children’s and Grandchildren’s Trust.
