NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Notice is hereby given that on Thursday, December 6, 2018, 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 to consider adoption of a:
Municipal Service Review (MSR) and Sphere of Influence STUDY (SOI) FOR THE CITY OF WOODLAND
MSRs and SOIs are tools created to empower LAFCo to satisfy its legislative charge of “discouraging urban sprawl, preserving open-space and prime agricultural lands, efficiently providing government services, and encouraging the orderly formation and development of local agencies based upon local conditions and circumstances (§56301). The studies inform logical and reasonable development of local agencies to advantageously provide for present and future community needs. SOIs indicate the “probable physical boundaries and service area of a local agency” (§56076). MSRs provide the relevant growth, capacity, financial and accountability data to inform LAFCo’s SOI determinations. On the basis of the Draft MSR and in accordance with Government Code Section 56425(g), staff is recommending an expansion of the City of Woodland’s SOI.
The Draft MSR/SOI for the City of Woodland will be available for public review beginning October 26, 2018, at the office of the Yolo LAFCo and online at www.yololafco.org. To be included in the staff report, written comments on the MSR Study and/or the SOI Update should be returned to the LAFCo office by November 26, 2018, either by mail at the address stated below or via e-mail to Yolo LAFCo Executive Officer Christine Crawford at (redacted). Comments received after that date will also be considered, but included in a supplemental packet to the Commission.
