Notice is hereby given that on Thursday, January 25, 2024, at 9:00 am, the Yolo Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) will conduct a Protest Hearing at the Yolo County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 625 Court Street, 2nd Floor, Woodland, CA to consider the following matter:
Northeast Industrial Area Reorganization to the City of Woodland (LAFCo # 23-06)
The above proposal was conditionally approved by Yolo LAFCo at a noticed hearing held on December 7, 2023. The proposal involves annexation of 13 parcels totaling 632+/- acres to the City of Woodland and concurrent detachment from the Springlake Fire Protection District (because fire protection and emergency response jurisdiction will transfer to the City). The affected area is in the industrial area on the northeast side of the City of Woodland, generally in the area north of East Main Street, south of County Road 18C, and on the east and west sides of County Road 102 and include the following parcel numbers: 027-210-007, 027-350-001, 027-350-051, 027-360-042, 027-360-043, 027-360-044, 027-360-045, 027-370-008, 027-370-009, 027-370-019, 027-370-029, 027-370-034, and 027-370-035. The proposal was initiated by landowner petition by California Compass Logistics Center, LLC to facilitate future industrial development under City jurisdiction and access needed municipal services. The terms and conditions of approval require LAFCo indemnification and payment of any processing costs prior to completing the reorganization. The area will be zoned Industrial and Flood Study Area by the City. The detailed resolution can be referenced at www.yololafco.org/notices.
The purpose of the Protest Hearing is to allow both landowners and registered voters within the affected territory the opportunity to submit written protest to the proposal. Qualifying individuals may submit written protest as both a landowner and registered voter but must use a separate form for each protest.
Written protests must be filed with LAFCo before the conclusion of the protest hearing. This includes submitting written protest by mail, e-mail, or hand-delivered, so long as it is received by LAFCo at 625 Court Street, Suite 107, Woodland, California 95695 by 3:00pm on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, the day before the protest hearing. All other protests must be hand delivered to LAFCo staff at the Protest Hearing before such hearing is closed. Each written protest shall state whether it is made by a landowner or registered voter. It shall also identify the property location or assessor's parcel number(s) (landowner) or residence address (including street number where applicable) (registered voter) and be signed and dated. All signatures must be dated after the publication of the protest hearing notice on January 3, 2024, per Government Code 57051. Only valid protests will be considered.
