Meadowcroft Neighborhood Improvements
The Town has begun design of the Fiscal Year 19/20 Pavement Rehabilitation Project: Phase 1. The
paving project is tentatively scheduled for summer 2019, and tentatively includes the following streets:
BROOKSIDE CT, BROOKSIDE DR (Morningside Dr. to Broadmoor Ave), MEADOWCROFT DR
(Morningside Dr. to Morningside Dr.), MORNINGSIDE DR (Broadmoor Ave to Brookside Ave) and
STONE CT (as shown in Figure 1 below):

We do not have accurate schedule yet. As additional information becomes available you will be updated.
Typically, streets take about five working days to prepare and pave. During construction there will be
some road closures during the work day, but you will always have driveway access outside of working hours.
Major Utility Company Preparation:
Ross Valley Sanitary District (RVSD) and Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) have completed
repairs to their utilities within the limits of the paving, and Pacific Gas and Electric is currently
investigating utility condition and designing replacement services where required. Construction for any
necessary utility repairs and replacements are required to be complete by May 1, 2019 so as not to delay
the paving contractor.
PRIVATE UTILITY WORK
There may be residents who need to do private utility work before the road is repaved. Once the
road is paved, there will be a moratorium in place for 7 years, which will only allow for cutting into the
new asphalt for emergency reasons. Even under emergency situations, the additional patchwork
requirements will be much more extensive which will make the cost of any emergency utility work much
more expensive (this includes privately owned services). Encroachment permit fees will be waived for
private utility work completed before May 1, 2019.
To determine if your sewer lateral needs replacement, the first step is to get an inspection. Ross Valley
Sanitary District has a lateral replacement grant program (LRGP). As of today, there are funds available
for lateral replacement, but delaying the work may result in loss of grant opportunity as it is fist come first served.
PLANNING A MAJOR REMODEL?
If you are planning to rebuild your home or do a major remodel in the foreseeable future, please contact
us as soon as possible to discuss how to address the related water, gas, electrical and sewer upgrades that
may require digging in the street.
To minimize future damage to the new pavement as well as the curb and gutter, trees which have
outgrown their environment and tree species with aggressive roots may need to be removed or
assessed by an arborist. Any removed trees will need to be replace with an approved street tree
which is better suited for the location.
The Town will waive all tree and encroachment permit fees for property owners who elect to
remove Liquid Ambar trees. These trees, while beautiful in the fall, are shallow rooted and cause
damage to sidewalks, curb and gutter, roadway asphalt, as well as house foundations.
