Continued NOTICE-CombinedFPDsDraftMSR-SOI (LAF 21-05)

Notice is hereby given that on Thursday, June 30, 2022, at 9:00 am, or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, the Yolo Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) will hold a Public Hearing at the Yolo County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 625 Court Street, Room 206, Woodland, CA, or remotely via Zoom (see below), to consider adoption of a:


The intent of the Municipal Service Review (MSR) is to review the capacity and adequacy of services being provided by all fifteen fire protection districts (FPDs) and one county service area (CSA) that provide the fire protection services in unincorporated Yolo County, and recommend improvements, as needed. Those agencies include the Capay Valley, Clarksburg, Dunnigan, East Davis, Elkhorn, Esparto, Knights Landing, Madison, No Man’s Land, Springlake, West Plainfield, Willow Oak, Winters, Yolo, and Zamora FPDs and CSA No. 9. The MSR recommends the Capay Valley, Dunnigan, Esparto, Knights Landing, Madison, West Plainfield, Willow Oak, Yolo, and Zamora FPDs form Joint Operation Agreement areas. It also recommends the Elkhorn and No Man’s Land FPD be dissolved and the territory annexed into other districts. On the basis of the MSR and in accordance with Government Code Section 56425(g), staff has reviewed the Sphere of Influence (SOI) of each agency and recommends that a SOI Update is necessary for the East Davis and Springlake FPDs and CSA No. 9. An SOI is a planning area that identifies territory for potential, future annexation into the districts. The proposed SOI for the East Davis FPD would include the territory of the No Man’s Land FPD and the portion of Springlake FPD south of County Road 29. The proposed SOI for the Springlake FPD would include approximately the northern 2/3rd portion of the Elkhorn FPD territory. The proposed SOI for CSA No. 9 would include approximately the southern 1/3rd portion of the Elkhorn FPD territory. The recommended result for the districts that contract for city services is one district for each city service area.
