Rancho Solano Street Work
Posted on Aug 8th, 2014

Many of you have inquired about the construction work taking place on the streets.   The City of Fairfield is in the process of sealing our streets.  The Federal Department of Justice, through the Federal Highway Administration, has determined that cape seals, among other non pavement treatments, requires all ADA accessible improvements adjacent to the seal coat be upgraded prior to or at the same time as the seal coat.  Since several streets within the subdivision are supposed to receive cape seal coats this year, all of the ramps adjacent to those streets are required to be upgraded to meet current requirements.
 
The new ramps will be compliant with the current Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.  Because of the topography in Rancho Solano, none of the current ramps meet the current maximum slope requirements (8.33% longitudinal, 2% cross), so they are being rebuilt to meet these requirements as best they can.  Also, new ramps will incorporate detectable warning surfaces per federal regulations (which didn't exist when the original ramps were built).
 
The work is funded through the Smith Ranch Road Maintenance District, which is budgeted out of existing district funds.  The project is estimated to cost $300,000 for 74 total ramps to be replaced.  Until the work is done, we will not be able to report an accurate amount.
 
It is anticipated that the seal coating work will begin August 20th.  Click here for the list of streets and schedule that will be affected by this work. 
 
We appreciate your patience while this project is being completed.  
 
 
ARC Reports Now Available on Website
Posted on Jul 19th, 2014
The Arcitectural Review Committe voted  to post its reports to the Board, in lieu of the minutes, which the Board directed last year not be posted.  The ARC Reports will provide an overview of the types of issues the Committee deals with each month.  They will also give homeowners a better understanding of the types of project that are easily approved and those which may be denied.   
 
The reports can be obtained in the members only section under "Meeting Minutes."
