Notice of Availability of Draft MSR/SOI and Public Hearing for the Sacramento-Yolo Port District
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Notice is hereby given that on Thursday, May 23, 2019, 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 West Sacramento Civic Center, 1110 West Capitol Avenue, West Sacramento, CA., to consider adoption of a:
MUNICIPAL SERVICE REVIEW (MSR) AND SPHERE OF INFLUENCE STUDY (SOI) FOR THE SACRAMENTO-YOLO PORT DISTRICT
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 Municipal Service Review and in accordance with Government Code Section 56425(g), staff has reviewed the agency’s Sphere of Influence (SOI) and recommends that a SOI Update is not necessary at this time. Therefore, no change to the agency’s SOI is recommended.
The Draft MSR for the Sacramento-Yolo Port District will be available for public review beginning May 1, 2019, 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 should be returned to the LAFCo office by May 15, 2019, either by mail at the address stated below or via e-mail to Yolo LAFCo Executive Officer Christine Crawford at email@example.com. Comments received after that date will also be considered, but included in a supplemental packet to the Commission.
Copies of the agenda, staff reports and supporting information will be available and may be examined at the LAFCo office, located in the Yolo County Administration Building, 625 Court Street, Suite 107, Woodland, CA, and online at www.yololafco.org at least five days prior to the meeting date.
