In a cul-de-sac community north of Whitney Ranch Parkway on the Lincoln city line, the city of Rocklin added four new roadways and 83 properties this week.
Sunset Ranchos Investors’ final map for Whitney Ranch Phase II Units 62 and 69 was authorized by the Rocklin City Council at its regular bimonthly meeting on Aug. 10. Near Lincoln, the project is situated north of Whitney Ranch Parkway, east of Ranch View Drive and west of Whitney Oaks Drive.
Peter’s Way and Creek Bank Way are two new street entries off Whitney Ranch Parkway in the cul-de-sac community. Peter’s Court and Creek Bank Court are the dead ends of the two streets. The north rear walls of the community run parallel to the Lincoln border, where new residences are now being erected.
The Rocklin City Council authorized the initial preliminary subdivision map for the Whitney Ranch Phase II “Small Lot” development in 2008. According to a city of Rocklin staff study, this property represents a merger and resubdivision of the remainder of Whitney Ranch Phase II. A portion of lot “D” is designated as “open space” in the agreement.
The approval of final maps is routine, according to Rocklin authorities. If a final map is in considerable agreement with the prior map, a legislative body cannot refuse to approve it. With all costs paid and requirements satisfied, the city judged the revised map to be technically accurate.
The construction of the upgrades, such as sidewalks, gutters and lighting, is partially completed, and the developer has promised the outstanding work. However, the vacant properties on Peter’s Way have yet to be developed.
The city will retain Landscape Lots A, B and C as well as Open Space Lot D, which are available for “dedication in the fee.”
According to authorities, Community Facilities District No. 5 will cover the costs of maintaining the landscaping lots and the open space lot.
