Development Manager SUBJECT: Bridlegate Estates According to Section 9-B of the Subdivision Regulations, a request for oversize participation can be requested . . . "where the width (of the thoroughfare) required by the City is in excess of those requirements specified in Section 8- G.10." Your client's development requires the installation of a 27' thoroughfare (Longmire) which does not exceed the required width for your client's development, therefore you do not qualify for oversize participation. It is my understanding that you would like to request the City to participate in the construction costs of Longmire. Since your request does not qualify for oversize participation, another option you can consider is a Development Agreement. In order to process your request, you will need to submit the required $500 Development Agreement fee and a draft Development Agreement prepared by your attorney specifically stating your request and the dollar amount you are requesting. Please be aware, that in addition to the application fee for the Development Agreement, the applicant is required to pay for the City's actual preparation and processing costs of the Development Agreement. Once the Development Agreement has been reviewed by staff and our Legal Department, it will be returned to your attorney for their review. Once an agreement has been reached between attorneys as to the form of the Development Agreement, it will be presented to City Council for their review and final decision. Please call me if you have any questions. May 20, 2002 Oakwood Custom Homes ATTN: Mr. Alton Ofczarzak PO Box 9849 College Station, TX 77842 RE: Bridlegate Estates Phase II Dear Mr. Ofczarzak: The City of College Station Development Services received a Final Plat Application for Bridlegate Estates Phase II on or about 8/31/01. The Final Plat Application received was not in accordance with the City Subdivision Regulations in that construction drawings for Longmire Drive were not included with the application. The City issued a "Stop Review" on the plat application due to the noncompliance. You have three options in order to procede with your plat. 1. You can construct Longmire. You will be responsible for the entire collector section from the southern border of Bridlegate Estates to the north border of Bridlegate Estates. You may request Over-size Participation in accordance with City Ordinances. 2. You can wait until the City constructs Longmire. This is an "assessment" project by the City. Landowners adjacent to the street will be assessed in accordance with state code and local ordinaces. 3. You can dedicate the ROW for future collector street and pay for the construction of a residential street. A bond will be accepted for this cost in order that you may procede with the subdivision. The bond will be due when the City begins construction. If you decide on Option 3, I have included an estimate of probable cost from the City Public Works Department. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at 979-764-3570. Thank you, Spencer G.

Oakwood Custom Homes has voiced some concerns regarding the bond amount needed for the residential section. The City of College Station's Subdivision Ordinances clearly outline the developer's responsibility to build in accordance with the Thoroughfare Plan and apply for oversize participation. Development Services handles all aspects of enforcing these ordinances when a developer submits a plat. As Spencer Thompson outlined in his letter dated May 20, 2002, the City supplied you with three options to choose from in order to proceed with Bridlegate Phase II. Option 1 directly follows the Subdivision Ordinances. Option 2 allows for Oakwood to wait until the City builds and assesses Longmire. However, if you were to choose Option 3, Oakwood Custom Homebuilders would be responsible for dedicating the Right of Way for a major collector (70 feet) and payment to the City for the entire cost of a residential street section to serve Bridlegate Phase II. A cost estimate for a residential street was provided with the letter discussing the different options. This preliminary estimate was strictly a rough estimate using similar projects from the past due to the fact that the Consultant Engineer is still in the Conceptual Design Phase. The estimate included only the minimum standards for a residential street such as asphalt, curb and gutter, 6' wide sidewalk along one r;de, and storm drain. Home of Texas A&M University The design firm submitted a conceptual design at the beginning of June, which included a preliminary storm drain system design. Using this information, the City was able to adjust your estimate using an accurate depiction of what the storm drain system will be. Please find the revised estimate attached for your reference. If you have any questions concerning this matter, please call me at 764-3528.

Capital Project Alternative. If you decide to wait and the current capital project proceeds ahead of your plat, you should experience a two step process. The first step is the purchase of the necessary rights of way by the City at fair market value as established by appraisal. This step is already underway, however the appraiser was given other priority projects to complete before getting back to this one. I would expect an appraisal to be available in four to six months, after which the record owner will be contacted by the City for purchase negotiation. The second step is the assessment of a portion of the ultimate roadway costs onto your property. While Council has the ability to adjust some factors, you should expect to be assessed approximately one third of the entire cost of the project-on a per foot basis. This assessment would be finalized after construction was complete, and you would be given a period of time to pay the assessment prior to a lien being placed on your property. Development / Platting Alternative. If you decide you wish to move ahead with your project in advance of the capital project, you can expect the following steps. Your plat would be reviewed to insure that the necessary rights of way were included as dedications to the City. Your infrastructure plans would not have to include Longmire, but your intersecting street would have to extend all the way to the Longmire right of way line and include a temporary turn around. In lieu of the construction of Longmire, as part of your revised platting application you would offer the posting of a financial guarantee of a form agreeable to the City. The amount of the guarantee would be determined by taking the estimated cost to construct a full residential street across the approximately 1,112 foot frontage of your property, then subtracting the appraised value of the difference in ROW between the residential street and the proposed major collector on your property. This would equal a strip 10 feet wide on both sides of the road where you will have frontage. Home of Texas A&M University have attached a copy of the specific ordinance sections that address the dedication and oversize processes. In your case, the City has already agreed to move Longmire to the western edge of your property, and already agreed to allow you to defer the construction via the posting of a guarantee. I suggest that you discuss this information with your engineer and let me know if you have any questions, comments, or issues that you would like clarification on. Should you wish to proceed, we will need updated applications, plats, infrastructure plans etc., as well as the offer of financial guarantee as described above. As usual, we would be glad to meet with you in advance of your submittal to make sure the necessary documents are in order. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance on this challenging project.

Alton has agreed to dedicate the property and pay the difference. He wants assurance (either in the dedication Deed and/or another document) that his assessment for this project has been satisfied after dedication and payment. He also wants to know that this part of the development process (Longmire ROW) has been satisfied. I will order the Dedication Deed and any other pertinent documents from Roxanne on Monday. I suppose since we will be accepting payment and waiving the assessment, there will also need to be some other sort of document. Brett, you are good with the written word.

Let me know how I can help in this process. Steve Page 1 Brett McCully - Re: Longmire Extension / Oakwood Custom Homes From: Brett McCully To: Mark McAuliffe Date: 4/18/03 1:38 P M Subject: Re: Longmire Extension / Oakwood Custom Homes Mark, I may be a bit confused about this, so bear with me while I restate a bit. Right now, their platting process is held up pending two shortcomings. They are obligated by the subdivision ordinance to dedicate the ROW, and his prior submittal did not show that. Dedication of the ROW by separate deed and showing said recorded dedication on his plat would take care of the first obligation, but it is actually an extra step used to avoid P&Z (I'll explain below). So for the plat to move ahead, they owe us $71,349 worth of dirt. They are also obligated by the subdivision ordinance to build Longmire to collector standards, for which we would pay him OP equal to the difference between a residential and a collector. So in essence he would have to pay for a residential street. This obligation was estimated on 6/02 to be about #124,000 which was relayed to Alton. While it would normally be part of his construction drawings, my 8/02 letter offered to take the funds for the residential street in lieu of making him build it, which would have taken care of the second. So for the plat to move ahead, they also owe us $124,842. Together these obligations are about $196,191 I would be willing to take the plat forward now under the following conditions. First of all, show the dedication of the ROW on the plat, and have the dedication effective with the plat. He has to do the plat anyway, so we could all save some paperwork and legal fees. Secondly, I would have to proceed with the plat with a variance to the street construction obligation to see if P&Z would decide to let them off the hook for the $124,000. Given suitable findings, they can approve the variance, and then approve the plat. Without the $124,000, or a variance by P&Z, the plat can't go forward. As I sit here today, I do not think the Commission could make the necessary hardship findings to allow the variance. The crux of the situation is that if we allow him to dedicate the ROW by separate instrument to the City in advance of the plat, then we are taking on the $124,000 obligation for the construction of the street. So when we (The City) consider the acceptance of this dedication, we need to be aware of that monetary obligation. Once he does not own the land where the street goes, and we have allowed him to subdivide it via public dedication, he no longer has any obligation towards Longmire by our current regulations. So I understand his offer, I would have tried that as well. Just remember the $124,000 cost that is attached to that land, in addition to the actual land value. In bold strokes, he is offering to give us $17,341 in exchange for us taking on a $124,000 obligation and giving him lots to sell. I know that if he does nothing, we only will get about $88,669 from him. That's a big difference from the $196,191 he would have to pay to move ahead and sell lots. know he's been 'difficult', and I don't mind putting together another letter about his plat related options. But I personally don't want to write the letter taking on the $124,000 obligation and letting him proceed with platting, just to be done with him. I know this is a lot of info, and I hope it's not too preachy, so let me know if you want to sit down and go over any of this in person. I guess that's what happens when I come in on a religious holiday Page 1 Brett Brett McCully - Re: Longmire Extension / Oakwood Custom Homes Mark McAuliffe 04/17/03 03:25PM Good afternoon, Please see attached message from Steve Lovett.

As usual, we would be glad to meet with you in advance of your submittal to make sure the necessary documents are in order. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance on this challenging project.
