Urban Growth Boundary

BACKGROUND  - (from Staff Report 9/15/20)

On May 26, 2020, the City Council established an Urban Growth Boundary/Sphere of Influence Ad Hoc Committee consisting of two Council members, two Planning Commissioners and one at-large community member. Since then, the Ad Hoc Committee has held two meetings on August 17 and August 31, 2020, respectively. At the August 31, 2020 meeting, the Ad Hoc Committee discussed moving forward with a scope of work to establish a SOI and UGB, as well as the need for a Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) approved SOI and Municipal Service Review (MSR). Details of the August 31 Ad Hoc Committee meeting are included in the minutes provided in Attachment 2.

DISCUSSION  - (from Staff Report 9/15/20)

Based on the Ad Hoc Committee’s August 31 discussion and meeting, staff recommends to only move forward with the SOI scope of work at this time in an effort to revise the City’s current SOI as reflected in the General Plan. The new SOI will become the basis for the City to conduct a MSR (which is required by LAFCo) to establish the City’s capacity for current and future service delivery (e.g., utilities, water, sewage) to its residential and commercial communities. Then, a new Council adopted SOI and MSR would be submitted to LAFCo for approval and adoption.
