Supervisors grant time extension for Redhawk development

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 June 23 to extend the performance completion dates for the infrastructure of 15 approved subdivision maps, including the Redhawk Communities subdivision development off Yucca Road.

The date by which the infrastructure must be completed for the Redhawk subdivision is now January 23, 2011, although a subsequent time extension is likely along with a new agreement to provide security for the infrastructure. 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 will become the 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. Seven of the 15 projects were given two-year time extensions to June 23, 2012, on the grounds that they have adequate security to guarantee completion of the remaining work. Eight of the subdivision maps, including the Redhawk development owned by Redhawk Communities, Inc., were provided with six-month extensions to allow the developers to acquire additional security which will be needed to have full security for the project’s completion. After that additional security is obtained, the map will return to the Board of Supervisors for approval of the new secured agreement and that approval will likely include another time extension.
