Notice of Hearing: City of Davis Sphere of Influence (SOI) Amendment for the Davis Innovation & sustainability Campus (DiSC 2022) LAFCo No. 22-02

Notice is hereby given that on Thursday, May 26, 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 via teleconference, pursuant to Government Code section 54953(e)(1) (as amended by Assembly Bill 361), to consider the following agenda item:                              

Project Title:
City of Davis Sphere of Influence (SOI) Amendment for the Davis Innovation & Sustainability Campus (DiSC 2022) LAFCo No. 22-02

Project Description:
An application has been submitted by Daniel Ramos to amend the City of Davis’s SOI to include an approximately 118.5-acre area east of Davis. The "sphere of influence" is a plan for the probable future physical boundaries and service area of a local agency, as determined by LAFCo. The northern 102-acre portion (APN 033-630-009) represents the project site for the proposed DISC project. The southern 16.5 acres (APNs 033-630-006, -011, -012) is included in the application to avoid the creation of an unincorporated island and includes the existing Ikeda’s Market, City water tank, and a park-and-ride facility. Approval of the SOI Amendment does not result in the annexation of the property into the City. LAFCo is responsible for developing the City’s SOI as its plan for orderly growth. LAFCo requested the SOI Amendment application for consideration before the election, rather than after, because an unincorporated area cannot be annexed into a city unless that area is within its SOI and considering the SOI amendment before annexation follows good planning principles. Annexation would be considered as a subsequent application to LAFCo if City of Davis Measure H is approved by the voters at the June 7, 2022 primary election.

The subject property is located at the northeast corner of Mace Boulevard and I-80.
