Motion and Vote

2. Viejo Camino General Plan Amendment Pre-application Review, Authorization for Staff to Process PLN 2007-1231 (Halcon Properties, LLC)

„X Disclosure of Ex-Parte Communications

„X Description: Request for site to be re-designated to MDR (Medium Density Residential) which would allow 10 units per acre.

„X Fiscal Impact: According to the findings from the Taussig Study, revenue from new residential development including property tax revenues, vehicle licensing fees, sales taxes, and other revenues are insufficient to cover the maintenance and emergency service costs of new development. Based on the revenue projections from the Taussig Study, the City has developed standard Conditions of Approval for new residential planned development projects that require the cost of maintenance and emergency services to be funded by the project through a combination of road assessment districts, landscape and lighting districts and community facilities districts. If the project is approved for processing, it should be required to be fiscally neutral so the added residential units fund their own on-site improvements and maintenance, as well as their fair share of off-site improvements and impacts to City emergency services.

„X Recommendations:

1. City Council authorize staff to process the proposed General Plan Amendment application with neighborhood meeting and study session by adopting Draft Resolution A;


2. City Council direct staff to further analyze the proposed project and report back to the Council before processing;


3. City Council direct staff to not process the project by adopting Draft Resolution B. [Community Development]
